Paris Jackson has paid an emotional tribute to her late father, Michael Jackson, on what would have been his 59th birthday, admitting she would never “feel love again” the way she did with him.
The 19-year-old took to Instagram to share a throwback photo of her giving her father a kiss as a child.
The heartfelt caption read: “Birthday wishes to the love of my life, the one person who showed me what passion truly was, the one that gave me solid morals to live by and how to dream.”
“I will never feel love again the way i did with you. you are always with me and i am always with you. though i am not you, and you are not me, i know with all of my being that we are one. and our souls will never change in that way.”
“Thank you for the magic, forever and always,” she concluded.
Music fans across the globe have also been paying tribute to the late singer.
Happy birthday to the greatest entertainer, ever. My favorite artist ever, #MichaelJackson. We miss you!

Paris was just 11-years-old when her father died of cardiac arrest in June 2009.
Since then Paris has become a celebrity in her own right and even presented an award at last Sunday's VMAs.
While on stage, the political activist urged viewers to rise against “Nazi white supremacist jerks” following the Charlottesville violence.
“If we were to all put our voices together, do you realise the difference we would make?”
