Michael's girl says that's why he put his children in face masks

Michael Jackson‘s daughter Paris has revealed what it was as a child when dad Michael put his children in masks to shield them from the paparazzi.

‘He didn’t want anyone to see what we looked like,’ she says.

‘That way we could have what he didn’t, which was a normal childhood.’

While 15-year-old Paris was just 11 when her dad died, she still has happy memories of their time together.

‘I have lots of memories of my father,’ the teenager tells The Daily Mail. ‘He was an incredible father. We all loved him to death.’

‘He’d try to educate us as much as he could and was always looking out for us. He was very protective.’

Paris made the comments in her first interview about her dad, but she recently turned down an opportunity to appear on a tell-all reality show, choosing to keep some of her life as private as Michael intended it to be.
