This upcoming June will mark the seventh anniversary since Michael’s death. The iconic singer tragically passed away on June 25 from a propofol overdose — he was only 50 years old. Although he left behind three children, Paris is his only daughter. She has a 19-year-old brother, Michael Joseph Jackson Jr., and 14-year-old brother, Prince Michael “Blanket” Jackson II.
Three years after her father’s death, Paris, then 14, tweeted she wanted to get a tattoo in her father’s memory, according to PEOPLE magazine. “I kinda want to get August XXIX tatted on my back.” Michael was born on Aug. 29, 1958. And while that is sweet as well, we think her final decision is even more heartfelt and impactful. She wears her father’s writing so well!
