Paris Jackson Says She’s Praying For Mick Mars

In an unexpected turn of events, Paris Jackson has come to the defense of Mick Mars, the former guitarist of Mötley Crüe on Twitter, likening his situation to the inconceivable idea of Eddie Van Halen being fired from his own band.

Mars, a founding member of the legendary rock band Mötley Crüe, announced his departure from the band after struggling with a chronic illness in late 2022. The guitarist has been battling ankylosing spondylitis, a form of arthritis that affects the spine, which has limited his mobility and ability to perform. However, it was said that he would remain a band member and contribute to the band’s work.

The circumstances surrounding Mars’ exit have been clouded by a lawsuit filed against the remaining members of Mötley Crüe. The details of the lawsuit are not entirely clear, but it appears that the severance package that he was offered, which increased his share of the 2023 tour from 5% to 7.5%, was an insult to him as the founding member of the band.

However, based on the band’s statement, Mick Mars was dismissed from the band due to a series of poor performances, allegedly struggling to remember chords and frequently making mistakes during their last tour, not to mention owing the band millions in advances.

Recently Mick shared a tweet thanking his fans for their support, and Paris was there to share her opinion on the matter. The musician said that kicking Mick off Mötley Crüe is as ‘stupid’ as it would be to kick Eddie Van Halen off Van Halen.

Mick Mars wrote:

“Thank you, everyone, for the support. It’s greatly appreciated. Peace.”

Paris Jackson’s tweet to show support for Mick Mars read:

“I mean, imagine trying to kick Eddie Van Halen, rest his soul, out of Van Halen. Stupid. I’m praying for you, Mick.”

As the music world continues to grapple with the impact of Mars’ departure from Mötley Crüe, Jackson’s comparison of Mars’ current situation with Mötley Crüe to the nonsensical thought of the late Eddie Van Halen being fired from Van Halen highlights the significance of his contributions to the band. It remains to be seen how this situation will ultimately play out, but one thing is sure: the rock community will have polarizing opinions about it.
