Paris Jackson imagines life with dad and mom in edited family photo
She lost her famous father when she was just 11 years old.
Paris Jackson posted a photo that shows her father, Michael Jackson, and her mother and herself in it, reported Inquisitr.
Though she may not remember much of her father, the 20-year-old model can at least imagine what it would be like to have a complete, loving family.
Paris Jackson posted the photo on Twitter that has her in the middle, flanked by her father, Michael Jackson, and her mother, Debbie Rowe, on either side.
The photoshopped picture was created by a fan, an Instagram user, @krafty_mj_stuff. The photo shows a present-day Paris being hugged by the King of Pop and his former wife.
Michael Jackson and Rowe got divorced shortly after Paris was born. She did not have a normal family while growing up.
When her father passed away in 2009, Paris and her two brothers were left in the care of their grandmother, Katherine Jackson.
A young Paris gave a very touching speech at her father’s memorial. Fans can remember the 11-year-old describing the pop icon as “the best father you could ever imagine” before sobbing into the arms of her aunt Janet Jackson.
A former dermatology nurse, Rowe, was not present for most of their children’s childhood but reconnected with Paris in 2016. Rowe is also the mother of Paris’ older brother, Prince.
Fans were moved by the emotional photo, but there was one person who was unimpressed. Fox News reported that Orange IS the New Black actress Lori Petty said that the photo was ‘creepy.’ However, she immediately deleted her tweet.
‘No. I think it’s nice to dream about what it would be like to have parents and to have it put into something I can see, even if it’s a fan-made edit.’

The young model defended the family photo and said that it was nice to envision a world where she had two parents. The two quickly made up and acknowledged their love and respect for each other in subsequent tweets.
Paris hosted a star-studded party at a bar in West Hollywood recently celebrated her 20th birthday. The guest list included Paris Hilton, Chris Brown, Ashlee Simpson, and Reese Witherspoon’s 18-year-old daughter Ava Philippe.
