When Michael died, his mother Katherine Jackson was granted custody of Paris and her siblings Prince, now 25, and Prince Michael Jackson II (aka Blanket), now 22. In 2012, TJ was named co-guardian and was instrumental in raising the three children, before taking over full guardianship as Katherine approached her nineties.

Paris, who is following in her famous father's footsteps by pursuing a music career, recently joined brother Prince onstage during the 75th Tony Awards to introduce a performance of MJ the Musical, the hit Broadway show based on the Thriller hitmaker's life.

"But what a lot of people don't know is that he loved musicals, on film and on stage," then introducing the night's first performance.

Paris added: "This number showcases that creative process as he builds a dance routine step by unforgettable step to one of his best-loved hits, drawing on some of the influences that helped inspire his signature style."
