Michael Jackson’s daughter Paris revealed the way her family has reacted since she revealed her sexuality during Wednesday’s episode of the “Red Table Talk.”

“My family is very religious and homosexuality is just very taboo and they don’t like to talk about it,” Paris explained to co-host Willow Smith during the episode. “It’s not really accepted.”

“I’ve gotten to a point where I respect them and I have love for them … I respect their beliefs. I respect their religion,” she added.


Paris claimed she felt “alone” and “excluded” at times, but that some of her family members have been supportive. Her brother, Prince Jackson, actually joined the GSA (Gay-Straight Alliance) club while in high school in order to better understand Paris.

Paris previously clarified that she doesn’t identify with a specific sexuality, but identifies more as sexually fluid.

“I came out when I was 14,” she began on her Instagram stories at the time, according to “Good Morning America.” “I’ve referred to the community as ‘my fellow LGBTQ+’ on stage before. I’ve talked about having a crush on girls when I was 8 in my Rolling Stone article. There are pictures of me kissing girls online. Why are people just now saying this is news?”

“And I’m not ‘bisexual,'” she added. “I just love people for people. I don’t label myself so please don’t label me. Thank you!”
