Michael Jackson’s daughter is all grown up: Paris Jackson turned 18 on Sunday, April 3. But it was not just the day of her birth that she chose to celebrate, but her love for her boyfriend, too.
Taking to Instagram, Paris shared a sweet picture of herself sporting a new look (a short blond hairstyle) as she locked lips with her boyfriend, Michael Snoddy.
Fans are pleased to see she is so happy and, for the most part, comments on the post have been positive.
“What a beatiful [sic] couple,” bisaudd wrote. “@parisjackson This picture is just so beautiful,” val_wood76 shared, and michaelsdignity agreed, writing, “I seriously love this Paris. I hope your [sic] happy.”
According to People magazine, the couple has been dating for at least a few weeks, and Snoddy is a heavy metal drummer who plays with the band Street Drum Corps.
They are adorable together, and are clearly not afraid to show their love on social media — Jackson has proven she’s open about sharing her personal life with the public, as she previously posted several loved-up pictures of herself and ex-boyfriend, Chester Castellaw.
Jackson posted a second photo from her birthday, this time of herself and Snoddy embracing while at Disneyland in Anaheim, California.
She captioned the image with, “Best birthday ever.”
Her friend, Niki Berger, also posted a photo of their time at Disneyland and wrote a touching tribute to Jackson in the caption. It read, “Wishing the happiest of birthdays to this nugget. i’m so lucky to have you in my life and to have spent time with you today. you deserve all the happiness in the world. i love you with all my heart, forever and ever.”
Jackson also took to Twitter to thank fans for all their beautiful birthday messages.
It’s great to see that Jackson has found someone who makes her happy, but some comments on the picture are less excited about her romance, with remarks such as, “Liked Chester better tho, more cuter [sic] but I suppose this one looks more suited to her music taste and style…,” “What about chester? Haha,” and “im hella [sic] sad wtf.”
However, it does not seem like Jackson is letting the negative reactions get to her, and this is something we applaud her for because there’s too much judgment in the world and not enough love. If Jackson is happy, then shouldn’t we all be happy for her, too?
