Former Jackson family spokesperson Raymone Bain speaks on Paris Jackson-
Intrv: We’ve seen the tweets, we’ve seen the videos, they’re certainly suggesting a 15 year old girl going through some tough times but do you know any signs of anything like depression that she’s been battling over the past few years?
Bain: Well I have not. I have spoken to members of the Jackson family. I must admit I have not seen Paris since her father’s funeral but I have been in close communication with her grandmother on occasions, her grandfather and her aunts or uncles and I have not been advised that there has been any depression, but I’ll tell you what Michael Jackson passed in 2009, my mother passed several months later. That was a traumatic circumstance for me at my age, so you think about Paris, who was there with her father all over the world, from the Louvre to sitting with him, talking about him and his life and his career as a little child.
We would go into Asia, Australia and Ireland and Michael loved books and reading and in those book stores there were CD’s, so Paris would make Michael buy his CD’s if you can believe it. She is his number one fan. There is not a number one fan in Asia or Europe. PARIS JACKSON IS THE NUMBER ONE FAN.
Can you imagine the King of Pop being in a record store and his little girl at the time, six, seven, eight years old coming with a stack of “Thrillers” and Michael Jackson’s “HIStory” 1,2 and 3 and MIchael would say to her, “Listen Paris we have those CD’s at home and I’m not going to buy my own CD’s.” As a little kid she would say, “well Daddy, you’re my favorite artist so I want you’re CD” and we would end up buying Michael’s CD’s and videos everywhere we went around the world.
That’s the kind of love and admiration she had for her father so for him to be taken out as he was, unexpectedly at 50, she was there with him, she saw what we have been hearing about, the horrible facts of deterioration.
That little girl and her brothers were there to see that so you can imagine the kind of shock that she experienced and why she is going through what she is going through right now.
