Paris Jackson, the 18-year-old daughter of Michael Jackson, is defending the late king of pop following the release of a report alleging that the superstar owned a disturbing pornography collection used to seduce underage victims at his Neverland Ranch.
On Tuesday, Radar Online released what appeared to be police reports from the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department that included details into Jackson’s porn collection, which reportedly included images of nude children, animal torture and sacrifice and could have been used to try and attract young men. His daughter denied the report’s veracity, calling it “trash” drummed up by “the parasites who make a career trying to slander my father.”
A representative of the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department told Billboard of the report, "Some of the documents appear to be copies of reports that were authored by Sheriff's Office personnel as well as evidentiary photographs taken by Sheriff's Office personnel interspersed with content that appears to be obtained off the internet or through unknown sources.” On Tuesday night, the estate of Michael Jackson issued a statement, calling the report “sleazy internet ‘click bait.’”
The report is said to stem from the November 2003 raid on Jackson’s Neverland Ranch, which was part of the child sex abuse investigation that eventually led Jackson to court. Over the weekend, Paris Jackson was criticized for not writing a father’s day post in honor of MJ, who died in 2009.
