Paris and Michael – a heavy metal drummer who plays with Street Drum Corps, a punk rock percussion band - started dating in the last few weeks, and have been public with their love on social media.
According to some reports, the couple met at an AA meeting, with a source close to the Jackson family telling Radar Online: "He is newly sober like Paris and they have obviously really latched on to each other.
"Michael is helping Paris with her vocals and they have gotten so close because of their shared love of music."
The couple have been dating for a couple of weeks now
Michael is Paris' first boyfriend since her split from Chester Castellaw in December of last year. The couple were together for almost a year before they went their separate ways.
Turning 18 means Paris has inherited another fraction of her $100million inheritance from her late father. According to Page Six, Paris receives $8million annually, as well as additional inheritance at ages 18, 33, and 40. She is no longer under the legal guardianship of her grandmother Katherine Jackson and cousin TJ.
