Paris Jackson opened up about her sexuality and how her popular father Michael Jackson "got on" when she was a child.
While opening up about her sexuality, Paris Jackson recalled early recollections of her popular father's help. In the debut scene of the Facebook Watch docu-series, Unfiltered: Paris Jackson and Gabriel Glenn, the 22-year-old entertainer and just girl of Michael Jackson, said she "never thought I'd end up with a fella.
I thought I'd wind up wedding a chick," she said in the scene discharged Tuesday. "I've dated a greater number of ladies than men."

Paris added, "The public only knows about three long-term relationships that I've been in, and they've been with men. The public doesn't know about most of the relationships I've been in."
The star further explained that she says she's gay and does not consider herself bisexual because
I've dated more than just men and women. I've dated a man that had a vagina.
"It has nothing to do with what's in your pants," she noted. "It has nothing to do with your XY chromosome makeup…It's literally just like what are you like as a person?"
For Paris, understanding her sexuality was initially challenging. "I didn't know that it was a thing, so I was a little conflicted about it because all I'd ever seen were men and women on TV together, so these thoughts didn't make sense to me."
However, "My dad caught on pretty quick," she said. "I think he just felt the energy and would like to tease me the same way that he would tease my brothers, like 'Oh, you got yourself a girlfriend.'"
I'm fortunate to have that, especially so young—I think I was like 8 or 9," Paris said. Not many children have that experience. Homosexuality, in general, is very taboo in the Black community. Paris said during the episode. "That on top of the religious aspect—it was something that I did feel like I needed to withhold for a while.
The musician even cited her past days remembering she later moving in with her grandmother, Katherine Jackson, a Jehovah's Witness, following Michael's death.
