Paris Hilton Says Michael Jackson Named His Daughter After Her

As if the children of deceased King of Pop Michael Jackson haven’t suffered enough already…

Celebutante Paris Hilton tells Extra that Jackson named his 11-year-old daughter after her.

“My mom and Michael went to high school together and they were best friends since they were 13,” Hilton elaborates. “So I grew up knowing Michael very well and when he had his daughter, he always loved the name Paris and grew up being an uncle to me. So he asked my mom if it was okay and of course she said yes and I think she’s such a beautiful little girl and I’m proud we have the same name.”

Poor girl! Let’s hope that’s the only trait that Paris Jackson inherited from Hilton.
