With the on-going Michael Jackson trial once again gobbling up a large portion of the Los Angeles headlines, on Thursday evening Piers Morgan asked Genevieve Jackson – the daughter of Randy Jackson and cousin of Paris – to share her insight on the complicated life that comes with being a Jackson.
In early June, Paris was rushed to the hospital after cutting one of her wrists. Since her father's death, Genevieve revealed that Paris has been struggling:
"It's rough," the 23-year-old said of her 15-year-old cousin. "But I think for all three of them, for the rest of my family and especially them three because that is - that was their world and that was their father and because, I know for me, when I was in high school, I had to get pulled out of school during the second trial because it was so painful for me and people would ask questions. So I can't imagine what she went through in school and what the other kids are going through."
Speaking publicly for the first time since her uncle's death, Genevieve noted that even though Michael Jackson is gone, his children are using the lessons they learned during his life:
"He taught them to always listen and to watch everything that's around them and to pay attention. You know, they are very, very smart children," Jackson told the "Piers Morgan Live" host. "And to stay strong, to have rhino skin, that's what he says."
