Michael Jackson's daughter Paris Jackson and family pay tribute to King Of Pop on 7years anniversary of his death
Michael Jackson's life, music, and legacy were remembered by his family on the seven year anniversary of his death this weekend.
The King Of Pop tragically passed away at the age of 50 on June 25, 2009 of acute propofol and benzodiazepine intoxication, and his personal doctor was later convicted of involuntary manslaughter and served two years in prison.
On Friday, the pop star's brothers, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon, and Jackie, joined forces to celebrate his life with a joint performance at the Del Mar Fairgrounds in San Diego.
Michael's 18-year-old daughter, Paris Jackson, also paid tribute to the King Of Pop.
The teen shared a touching, black-and-white photo collage to her Instagram account on Saturday, which included two old images of herself with the pop star.
In one, Michael cradled baby Paris in his arms, and in a second the youngster cuddled up in his embrace.
In Paris' moving caption, she referred to her father as her 'best friend', and thanked him for 'touching millions of hearts', including her own.
'7 years, rest in peace, my best friend in the entire universe,' she wrote. 'i love you more than anything. things may be a little sh*tty in the press right now but everyone knows it's all bull and i swear on the family name i will protect you for as long as i live.
'there's no one like you, and there never will be. thank you for touching millions of hearts, but especially my own.'
'To The Most Loving Caring GoodHearted Talented Person Of All Time, We Love You #WeMissYouMJ & We Always Will! #RIPMJ,' she tweeted.
Taj Jackson, who is Michael's nephew, remembered his uncle with a tweet as well.
'7 years ago we lost one of our brightest lights and it has been a darker world ever since. #MJforever,' he wrote early Saturday morning.
