PARIS Jackson has shared never-been-seen footage of her late father, Michael Jackson, 11 years after his tragic death.
The 22-year-old is starring in a new Facebook Watch documentary, Unfiltered, which will follow Paris and her boyfriend – and Soundflowers bandmate – Gabriel Glenn on tour around the US.
In the first trailer, old home video shows Michael on the floor with Paris and his eldest son, Michael Joseph Jr, and he says: "What does Paris want to be?"
A young Paris replies: "I want to do what you do… you dance and sing."
Paris has remained in the public eye as she grew up and admits that she often felt fans forgot she was "a human."
She says: "You see a kid grow up in the public eye but you forget I am human. I was against letting the world in because it wasn't a choice, I wasn't ready. I am ready now."
The singer also reveals she wants to influence young people towards "self-acceptance and courage", and jokes: "A Jackson doing folk indie? Not what they expect."
Michael died in 2009 when Paris was 11-years-old.
His personal physician Conrad Murray said he found the singer in bed and not breathing on the afternoon of June 25, 2009. The pop legend had been rehearsing past midnight on the night of June 24, ahead of a series of comeback concerts at the London O2 Arena, and had not left his bedroom in the morning.
After trying to revive Jackson without effect, Murray called paramedics who performed CPR on the singer for 42 minutes before he was taken to the hospital.
Michael died of an overdose of the drugs propofol and benzodiazepine following a cardiac arrest.
Paris has also been at the center of controversy and has in recent years denied claims of attempting to take her own life.
In January a friend of the model alleged Paris was on a string of prescription medicines to relieve anxiety.
Pals admitted that they were concerned she was on a brink of a meltdown after cancelling a gig with her band Soundflowers in Rome.
It was alleged that Gabriel was reportedly "cleaning up his act" to help the star get back on track.
