Paris Jackson Chats with Oprah: “Dad’s Death Never Gets Easier”
Paris Jackson is sitting down for an intimate chat with Queen of Talk Oprah Winfrey on the OWN series Oprah’s Next Chapter. The 14-year-old daughter of late pop great Michael Jackson reveals that she’s still struggling with the death of her father nearly three years after his passing.
Jackson died on June 25, 2009, at the age of 50. Last November, a jury convicted Dr. Conrad Murray of involuntary manslaughter for giving Jackson a lethal dose of the powerful sedative propofol.
“It never gets easier,” Paris tells Oprah in this clip.
An aspiring actress, Paris will play Lundon O’Malley in the fantasy film Lundon’s Bridge and the Three Keys. The budding socialite joins a cast that includes Larry King, his wife Shawn Southwick King, Love Boat star Ted Lange and former ‘Nsyncer Joey Fatone.
The film is an adaptation of the little-known and privately-published ook by author Dennis H. Christen. The plot focuses on the love of a family and the strength that brings them together.
Oprah’s Next Chapter, featuring guests Paris Jackson and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, airs this Sunday, 9 p.m., on OWN.
