Paris Jackson “owes her life” to her cousin, TJ Jackson. The 22-year-old actress paid tribute to the 3T singer – who was appointed co-guardian of the star and her brothers Prince and Blanket in 2012, three years after the death of her father, Michael Jackson. She made no mention of the late Thriller hitmaker in her Father’s Day post.

Sharing a pair of photos of the two of them together, she wrote: “Happy fathers day papa t [heart emoji] I love you with all of my heart and I can’t even begin to express my gratitude for all you’ve done. I owe you my life.”

TJ — who took over sole guardianship of Blanket when he was 15 and who also has four children and two stepchildren of his own — took to his own Instagram account to send a message to his father, Tito Jackson.

He wrote: “Happy Father’s Day to my pops @poppa3t. I am so thankful for all you’ve done for me. Enjoy your day. I love you.”

As well as her gratitude towards TJ, the Star actress previously admitted she “owes a lot” to her boyfriend and Soundflowers bandmate Gabriel Glenn.

She said: “Gabriel is my muse. I owe a lot to him. The dark parts of my mind are usually what help me write the songs I end up liking and wanting to record. The Beatles, Joe Purdy, Ray LaMontagne, Radiohead,and The Lumineers are big writing influences of mine as well.”
