Christina is a reporter based in Boise, Idaho. She's a veteran vegetarian, a political junkie and a huge grammar snob. On the weekends, she can usually be found binging on Netflix, playing the piano or petting her cats, Daisy and Dandelion.
Well, duh. But it's clearly had a huge impact on who Paris is growing up to be.
"They always say, 'Time heals,'" she recently told Rolling Stone about the death of her father. "But it really doesn't. You just get used to it. I live life with the mentality of 'OK, I lost the only thing that has ever been important to me.' So going forward, anything bad that happens can't be nearly as bad as what happened before. So I can handle it."
"He would drop hints about people being out to get him," she said to Rolling Stone. "And at some point he was like, 'They're gonna kill me one day.'"
"Because it's obvious," she added when flat out asked if she thought Michael was murdered. "All arrows point to that. It sounds like a total conspiracy theory... but all real fans and everybody in the family knows it. It was a setup."
Even though her dad was the King of Pop, Paris says her childhood wasn't that out of the ordinary.
"We couldn't just go on the rides whenever we wanted to," she said of her dad's Neverland Ranch. "We actually had a pretty normal life. Like, we had school every single day, and we had to be good. And if we were good, every other weekend or so, we could choose whether we were gonna go to the movie theater or see the animals or whatever. But if you were on bad behavior, then you wouldn't get to go do all those things."
She dated soccer player Chester Castellaw for almost a year before they suddenly called off their relationship in December. Paris was spotted out with Castellaw wearing a ring, which sparked engagement rumors, but some sources claim she was just wearing the ring for attention.
She's now dating Michael Snoddy, a drummer who plays with the percussion ensemble Street Drum Corps.
From Michael's death in 2009, to fighting within her family in the years that followed, to the failing health of the grandparents she lives with, Paris has seen far more than her fair share of tragedy.
