Michael Jackson’s daughter, Paris, says that her ‘religious’ family won’t ‘accept’ her sexuality. 

The 23-year-old made the comments during an interview with Willow Smith on Red Table Talk.

She said: “I’m still kind of figuring it out. My family is very religious and a lot of homosexuality is very taboo, so they don’t like to talk about it, it’s not really accepted.

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

“To expect them to put aside their culture and their religions… expectations to me lead to resentments and what people think about me isn’t my business.”

But she added that her brothers are incredibly supportive of her decisions and Prince has even signed up to an LGBT society at his school. 

When Paris was asked more about whether or not she was confident about her sexuality around certain family members, she answered: “Some of my family I talk to about it openly, some of my family I don’t.

“So I try and take the approach that what other people think of me is none of my business and as long as I’m living a life of love and being of service and honesty and I’m not hurting other people, I think I’ll be alright.”

The musician then opened up about her past relationship with former bandmate Gabriel Glenn who she split from last year. 

“It was the deepest heartbreak I ever experienced,” Paris confessed. “But also it was one of the most powerful rebirths I’ve ever had in finding my voice and finding my sound and embracing being a musician.

“I was scared to do that for a long time. Finally, I’m just like, this is who I am, I’m a musician.”
