Paris Jackson, 17, is still in love. She and her soccer playing boyfriend of six months, Chester Castellaw, 18, were kissing quite openly, according to onlookers at Starbucks in Woodland Hills. Both Paris and her red-haired boyfriend are in the habit of posting photos of themselves smooching online. Her hair was a bit messed up, but Paris looked happy as they left the coffee house separately.

Paris Jackson has made it clear that she would like to spend the summer on her biological mother Debbie Rowe’sWILL PARIS HILSTON California ranch, but the Jackson family isn’t thrilled with the idea. Since her suicide attempt, Paris, 16, has been doing well at the Diamond Ranch Academy therapeutic boarding school in Utah, and the school approves of a two week vacation for her – but not the whole summer. But Paris would like to not only spend the summer with her mother, but stay there indefinitely, and not return to Utah. Katherine Jackson is against the idea – especially since Debbie became engaged to Marc Schaffel, Michael Jackson’s former manager. Schaffel sued Michael several times after he was fired. It’s a convoluted situation but Paris DOES seem to be having a more normal life in Utah than she did in LA. Hopefully, common sense will prevail.

Paris Jackson isn’t the only problem child in her family. Now that he’s driving, her older brother Prince, 16, has suddenly developed an independent streak and according to the NY Post, he wants to move OUT of the family mansion into his own bachelor pad! It doesn’t help that he’s been dating a Kuwaiti princess – Remi Alfalah, 17. These two kids are both financially independent (Prince gets $66,000 a month) and they have big ideas. Prince is wooing Remi with expensive gifts of jewelry etc and the two have been seen dining at fancy Beverly Hills restaurants. The Jackson family fears Prince is getting out of control and they don’t know what to do. Even LaToya is worried. (Above Prince dropped Remi off at LAX)

The mysterious TJ Jackson made a big fuss about getting himself assigned as co-guardian of Michael Jackson’s children at a salary of $9000 a month. But after Paris’s suicide attempt and hospitalization, it was discovered that TJ had MOVED 76 miles away from the Jackson home in Calabasas! Above, he resurfaced and took Prince and Blanket to the mall while Paris is recovering. Who IS in charge around there, anyway?

It looks like the thing that Katherine Jackson was hoping would NOT come up in the current court trial with AEG Live, is likely to be revealed, and it could easily be the cause of Paris’s suicidal breakdown. Not only has the trial re-tarnished Michael Jackson’s reputation, but AEG Live claims they have “irrefutable proof” that Michael is not the biological father of Paris and Prince and they are ready to bring it to court. Paris, 15, is distraught over her family secrets being exposed in public and she doesn’t want to appear in court herself. This is what the Jackson family brought upon themselves.
The Jackson family was WARNED it would open up a big can of worms if they proceeded with their lawsuit against AEG Live, charging that the company’s negligence caused Michael Jackson’s death. Many negative things about Michael’s life – his drug addiction and child molestations charges, in particular – would be brought up and examined. NOT a good thing for his surviving children. But the Jackson family was determined to make AEG PAY for Michael’s death. An AEG executive described the lawsuit as “extortion.” Certainly Paris and her brothers were shocked to learn that their beloved father was a raging drug addict. Who knows what their school friends have been whispering. Paris, 15, has grown up without a mother – until recently when she sought a friendship with her birth mother, Debbie Rowe. This greed inspired trial could easily have contributed to Paris’s despair.
The Michael Jackson wrongful death trial now going on has reignited all the rumors about who the biological father of Michael’s kids is. Former child star Mark Lester (“Oliver”) was one of Michael’s friends who donated sperm when Michael asked for it and he thinks HE is their father. Other potential “fathers” include Marlon Brando and Macaulay Culkin, and our pick, Dr Arnie Klein. There may be more donors out there who won’t talk about it. Michael figured with so many possibilities no one would ever figure out who the real father is. We wonder if someday his kids will demand DNA tests to clear this up.
She’s fifteen now and Paris Jackson is developing a mind of her own. Since she started going to a regular school she realized there is much to experience beyond the world of the Jackson family. She sought out and seems to be enjoying a friendship with her birth mother Debbie Rowe - they’ve been seen shopping and having lunch together, among other things. Paris also rebelled against her grandmother Katherine and now refuses to go door to door spreading the word of Jehovah’s Witness to her neighbors in Calabasas. That, combined with her two-tone hair and striking beauty, indicates she’s becoming a force to be reckoned with.
Paris Jackson is fifteen now and it’s understandable that she would become curious about her birth parents. All she has to do is look in the mirror to note that the father she loved, Michael Jackson, was not her biological father. She has had little contact with her mother Debbie Rowe, who married Michael in 1996, bore two children for him (Paris and Prince,) and divorced him in 1999 giving him full custody. She later admitted it was a business transaction. Paris has been in contact with Debbie and has been spending time with her. Certainly she’s hoping Debbie will eventually open up about who her father really is. We’re guessing that Debbie won’t reveal her former boss, Dr Arnie Klein, as the sperm donor father as long as he’s alive. But she might drop a few hints to Paris.
Leave it to LaToya Jackson to figure out a way to make money from Michael Jackson’s kids. While much of the family has been banned from the Calabasas home where Prince, 16, Paris, 15, and Blanket , 10, live with Michael’s mother, LaToya, 56, has maintained a relationship. According to The Daily Mail, she knew the children had show business aspirations so she started a talent agency called Ja-Tail Enterprises, convinced them to sign up, and now manages them. And they’re not complaining- after he signed, Prince landed his job on E.T., and Paris is set to film a movie next summer. LaToya gets 15% of their take. So far, the kids are LaToya’s only clients, but you can visit her ambitious website by clicking here.
