Paris Jackson Reveals Coming Out As Bisexual At 14
Paris Jackson is taking aim at those who claim she's been hiding her sexuality. Michael Jackson's daughter isn't mincing her words in responding to critics.
It's Old News
The 20-year-old model took to social media to inform everyone that the stories doing the rounds about her coming out as bisexual are old news.The story first arose when, while doing a fan Q&A, Jackson responded to a question about whether she's bisexual in the affirmative.
"That's what you guys call it so I guess - but who needs labels," she answered plainly.
Her admission caused quite a stir, with dozens of news articles popping up almost instantaneously about how she apparently revealed her sexuality.
However, the model-actress was quick to point out that this wasn't news at all. Jackson turned to Twitter to let everyone know that she actually came out at 14.
She shared an article in relation to her "coming out" and wrote alongside it that everybody has known for years.
"How many times have I publicly referred to the community as 'my fellow LGBTQ+'? ... I've been apart of the community for years. I even mentioned having crushes on girls when I was eight in a magazine before. I've been caught kissing girls in public," she wrote.
She also posted an Instagram Story explaining that she's not bisexual. She just loves people in general and requested that fans should not label her.
Finding Her Person
Jackson was most recently spotted making out with model Cara Delevigne, although, the two have never confirmed their relationship. They've been spending lots of time together since meeting last year. Delevigne is also openly fluid about her sexual orientation.
The two even showed up at the February 2018 Burberry show during London Fashion Week. They've frequently been seen holding hands and kissing in public.
As a result, Jackson reckoned it must be a slow news day if anybody was writing about her supposedly coming out when it has been public knowledge for the past six years.
Fans rallied around her online, and the model-actress retweeted some of her favorite supportive messages from them.
"Slow news day? I keep seeing headlines about @ParisJackson's sexuality. However, if you followed her or just did any research this isn't new. She's been open about it for years & has been photographed with men and women. Outlets need to do some quick research before posting," wrote one fan.
Jackson previously dated Michael Snoddy.
She opened up earlier in the year about her late father's chilled out parenting style, telling Rolling Stone that he made light of her crush on a famous lady rather than chastising her for it.
