Paris Jackson, the daughter of the late singer Michael Jackson, says she believes her father was murdered.
“He would drop hints about people being out to get him,” she told Rolling Stone magazine. “And at some point he was like, ‘They’re gonna kill me one day.'”
Rolling Stone noted that she “blames Dr. Conrad Murray – who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in her father’s death – for the dependency on the anesthetic drug propofol that led to it.” However, it added that Paris “has darker suspicions about her father’s death.”
“Because it’s obvious,” she added to Rolling Stone when she was pressed to elaborate on why she believes her father was murdered. “All arrows point to that. It sounds like a total conspiracy theory and it sounds like [expletive], but all real fans and everybody in the family knows it. It was a setup. It was [expletive].”
Murray, the doctor of the late King of Pop, was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in Jackson’s death.
Paris added that she wants “justice” for her father, adding: “I definitely do, but it’s a chess game.”

“And I am trying to play the chess game the right way. And that’s all I can say about that right now,” she said.
In the interview, Paris was asked about who she thought wanted to kill her father. “A lot of people,” she told the magazine.
On June 25, 2009, Jackson was found unconscious on his bed before he was pronounced dead at the hospital later that day. Murray was convicted of manslaughter for getting Jackson dependent on the drug propofol.
Paris, now 18, was 11 when her father died. “They always say, ‘Time heals,…But it really doesn’t. You just get used to it,” she said. “I live life with the mentality of ‘OK, I lost the only thing that has ever been important to me.'”
