Paris Jackson has recently sat down for an interview on Facebook’s Red Table Talk chat show.
Among a few things, Jackson took the time to expand on what it was like for her, growing up with intense media attention, particularly during her early years, as reported by NME.
In the episode, hosted by longtime friend, Willow Smith, Jackson says, “I experience auditory hallucinations sometimes with camera clicks and severe paranoia and have been going to therapy for a lot of things but that included.”
“I’ll hear a trash bag rustling and flinch in panic. I think it’s standard PTSD,” Jackson continued.
Elsewhere in the episode, Jackson talks through her experience in coming out as bisexual and what it meant to her that she was able to have her siblings support her.
Jackson said, “They’ve always been super-supportive.” She also shares that her brother Prince Jackson joined a high school club which unites and supports LGBTQ youth.
And she’s grateful to have that support, acknowledging that not everyone is as lucky. “Not a lot of people can say they have siblings that support them like that.”

Earlier this year, the IRS valued Jackson’s estate at over $1.1 billion, attributing $434 million alone for Jackson’s image and likeness. The government also found the estate had underpaid its taxes by $500 million, adding nearly $200 million in penalties.
After that, the IRS significantly decreased its early estimates by time the trial took place. The trust that held Jackson’s stake in Sony/ATV and a trust that held music copyrights, had a value of $482 million.
Judge Mark Holmes ultimately valued Jackson’s music catalogue at $107 million — $7 million less than the IRS estimate. When considering the image and likeness, the trust that held Jackson’s stake in Sony/ATV, Judge Holmes sided with the Jackson estate, valuing his image at $4 million and the Sony/ATV stake at zero.
