Paris Jackson was raised as if she was her brother Prince Jackson’s twin! The folk singer recently sat down with Ted Stryker of Tuna on Toast with Stryker to talk about her upbringing.
“The only person that’s been able to properly scare me is my brother,” Paris told Ted. She went on to tell the show host that she and her brother were raised like twins despite being several months apart in age. “We grew up with the same teacher through each grade,” Paris shared with Ted Stryker. “[We were] treated like twins, so I think we have a bit of telepathy there,” the young artist shared.
Prince Jackson had the support of his entire family three years ago when he completed his undergraduate studies at Loyola Marymount University. “I graduated from @loyolamarymount Cum Laude in the school of business with a focus on entrepreneurship,” Prince told his Instagram fans after the commencement ceremony.
“I met so many people and learned so much that the experience alone is worth it,” Jackson added. “I wish I could thank everyone that helped me make it to the end but I can’t and unfortunately, they’re not all pictured here,” Prince said in reference to a picture that showed him with his family. The Jackson family matriarch, Kathryn Jackson, was photographed in the candid.
It was a few years ago that Mrs. Jackson expressed her desire to rear her late son’s kids in the way he intended. “All I wanted [was] these kids to be is happy,” Kathryn told the press during an interview. “They are incredibly polite and that’s down to the way Michael brought them up,” Mrs. Jackson added.
“He instilled good manners but it’s a different generation, of course, and I don’t understand the whole social media thing,” Kathryn admitted when speaking of her grandchildren’s seeming obsession with their electronic devices. “They are always on their phones,” Jackson said.
Prince, Paris, and the youngest of the group, Blanket, are Michael Jackson’s children. This year marks the thirteenth since the King of Pop’s untimely death.
