Michael Jackson’s daughter Paris was spotted this week in a T-shirt that was ready to provoke a strong reaction.
The 25-year-old “nepo baby” popped up in Los Angeles for a coffee run with her friend and songwriting collaborator Linda Perry, 58.
When they were spotted in California this week, Paris was wearing a T-shirt with inflammatory messages in sloppy handwriting.
One of the slogans appeared to read: ‘The Twitter of Killer Babies’, while another read in larger letters: ‘Rise an Kill Your Self (sic)’.
Two years ago, Paris appeared on Red Table Talk and told Willow Smith that she had attempted suicide more than once in her youth.
Wow: Michael Jackson’s daughter Paris was spotted this week in a T-shirt that was ready to provoke a strong reaction

In 2019, it was reported that Paris had tried to commit suicide – a claim she dismissed as “lies, lies, lies omg and more lies.”
Disturbing footage emerged of a 911 call in which emergency responders who went to Paris’ home discussed a “psychiatric problem” of a “possible VIP.”
At one point during the nerve-wracking call, the Los Angeles Fire Department and EMS gave the chilling instruction: “upgrade to emergency.”
Two years later, Paris went on Red Table Talk and candidly commented on her suicide attempts to fellow showbiz legacy Willow Smith.
“A lot of people feel remorse when they try to kill themselves,” Paris said. ‘Like you have last minute regrets. There have been times when I did, there have been times when I didn’t. Where I was upset, it didn’t work.’
But she then clarified: “But I can say several years later that I am very grateful that I didn’t do that. It’s gotten better.’
Paris explained that her suicidal tendencies stemmed from her depression, adding that she had experienced cyberbullying during her adolescence.
“It was really hard,” Paris said during the pathetic interview. ‘And people told me to kill myself every day. And I was depressed.’
Family business: Paris followed in her father’s footsteps and started singing; pictured performing at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Tennessee in June
She and Linda met a year ago at the iconic music venue The Troubadour in Los Angeles, according to American songwriter.
They were there to attend an event by Linda’s group EqualizeHer, which strives for equal representation of women in the music world.
Linda and Paris then collaborated on Hit Your Knees, bringing together an all-female team to curate the recording in line with the EqualizeHer mission.
“The single provides a replicable model for involving more women in song production,” a press release said.
‘In collaboration with EqualizeHer, Paris will use this song to challenge other artists to assemble a female production team for at least one song on their next album.’
Michael Jackson shared Paris with his second wife Debbie Rowe, who married him the year of his divorce from his first wife Lisa Marie Presley.

Debbie and the King Of Pop first met when she worked as a nurse at the clinic where he was undergoing treatment for his infamous vitiligo.
Michael and Debbie also welcomed a now 26-year-old son named Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr., who goes by the nickname “Prince.”
After his second divorce, the Billie Jean singer had a child named Prince Michael ‘Blanket’ Jackson II through surrogacy in 2002.
Michael died in 2009 at the age of 50 from cardiac arrest after being given propofol as a sleeping aid.
His legacy has come under renewed scrutiny in recent years amid long-running allegations that he was a child molester.
Although Michael was acquitted in 2005, the accusations continued in the public square, including in the 2019 docuseries Leaving Neverland.
