Paris Jackson’s tribute to her dad on her 18th birthday is adorable

Paris Jackson is all grown up and almost unrecognisable from that shy, brown haired 11-year-old we were introduced to at Michael Jackson's memorial ceremony in 2009.

Since her late father’s death the 17-year-old aspiring singer has refused to celebrate her birthday as she couldn’t face the heartbreaking memories that came with it, but as this year she turns 18 she decided to mark the day by getting a tattoo in tribute to her dad.

The tattoo features the words 'Queen of My Heart' in Michael's handwriting on her wrist.

Sharing a black and white photo of the ink on Instagram, she captioned: ‘To everyone else he was the King of Pop. To me, well, he was the king of my heart.’

Her tattoo artist Justin Lewis also shared a picture of himself with Paris and her cousin Austin Brown.

Adorable.

June 25th will mark the seven year anniversary of Michael Jackson’s death.
