Paris Hilton claims Michael Jackson named his daughter after her

Paris Hilton has sensationally claimed that the late Michael Jackson named his 11-year-old daughter after her.

Not after the French city, of course…

The blonde 28-year-old heiress explained that her mother had gone to high school with Jackson and that the pair were “best friends since they were 13”.

Hilton said:

“I grew up knowing Michael very well and when he had his daughter, he always loved the name Paris and grew up being an uncle to me, so he asked my mum if it was okay, and of course she said yes, and I think she’s such a beautiful little girl and I’m proud we have the same name.”

Jackson, who tragically passed away at 50 on June 25, had three children, Prince Michael, 12, Paris Katherine, 11, and seven-year-old Blanket.
