Paris Jackson, the 14-year-old daughter of the late pop music star Michael Jackson, has told Oprah Winfrey she has faced cyber-bullying. ABC News reports:
The 14-year-old invited Winfrey into her home and her life, and in many ways, she’s like any other teenager. She’s switched from homeschooling to attend high school, hangs out with friends and reveals that she has even dealt with bullying.
“People have tried [to bully], but it doesn’t always work,” she said. “At school and some people try to cyber bully me. They try to get to me with words, but that doesn’t really work.”
When asked by Winfrey if she thought her peers were jealous, Paris said: “Maybe, I don’t know.”
