Michael Jackson’s Daughter Paris Suffers From PTSD Caused By Paparazzi Encounters
During her appearance in the talk show Red Table Talk, Michael Jackson’s daughter Paris Jackson has revealed that she suffered long-term anxiety and trauma because of being surrounded by the paparazzi since her childhood.
In the docu-series named ‘Unfiltered’ which she and her former boyfriend Gabriel Glenn had made, Paris Jackson, who also tries to follow his father’s steps as a musician, revealed that she self-harmed and attempted suicide and found music as a way to channel her pain. The former couple made an acoustic duo called ‘The Sunflowers,’ and performed in their first concert in 2018 with their original songs ‘In The Blue’ and ‘Daisy.’ After their breakup, Paris shared her debut solo album ‘Witted’ in November 2020.
In the online talk show that airs on Facebook Watch, Paris Jackson said she was experiencing auditory hallucinations with camera clicks along with severe paranoia and has been going to therapy for these issues and others. Jackson added that she even flinches in panic when she hears a rustling trash bag. As a child of a world-renowned pop music icon, Paris thinks the frequent encounters with paparazzi throughout her childhood caused her to suffer from ‘standard PTSD.’
Paris says in the show that:
“I experience auditory hallucinations sometimes with camera clicks and severe paranoia and have been going to therapy for a lot of things but that included. I’ll hear a trash bag rustling and flinch in panic. I think it’s standard PTSD.“
As a consequence of living under the media glare, Paris Jackson appears to have been suffering some serious mental health issues throughout his life which affects her deeply. The upcoming episode of Red Table Talk covering Paris Jackson’s one-on-one discussion on these topics will air on Facebook Watch on 16 June.
