Paris Jackson and the Jackson 5 paid loving tribute to Michael Jackson on the seventh anniversary of his death.
On Saturday, his beloved daughter took to Instagram to pay tribute to the late music icon. She shared a beautiful black-and-white collage that featured three photos, two real snapshots and a Photoshopped image of what the two might look like today if the King of Pop were still alive.
"7 years, rest in peace, my best friend in the entire universe. I love you more than anything," she wrote.
"Things may be a little sh**ty in the press right now but everyone knows it's all bull and i swear on the family name i will protect you for as long as i live," she added, calling out a recent report alleging that Michael had a pornography collection. "There's no one like you, and there never will be. thank you for touching millions of hearts, but especially my own."

On Friday, Michael was also honored at the San Diego County Fair in Del Mar, California, with a special performance by The Jackson 5. Jermaine, Titi, Jackie, and Marlon Jackson all took the stage to sing a few of their hits, including "One More Chance," along with Michael's "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'," which were shared on social media via Instagram user @mattinreallife.
I go to a lot of shows. I've seen some of my favorite bands 20..30...even 40+ times. But I never got to see my favorite artist live before he passed away 💔 But it was pretty cool to spend tonight, the eve of the 7th anniversary of his death, with his mom and brothers and family. We miss you Michael. You left us way too soon. #TheJacksons #Jackson5 #RIPMichael #MichaelJackson
Jackson died on June 25, 2009, at age 50 at his Holmby Hills home in Los Angeles.
Back in April, Paris celebrated her milestone birthday by getting a tattoo in honor of her late dad. "To everyone else he was the King of Pop. To me, well, he was the king of my heart," she captioned a photo of the new ink.
One month later, she went to another tattoo shop to get part of the illustration from Michael's 1991 Dangerous album cover tattooed on her arm. Hear more on her body art in the video below.
