Opening up in an intimate interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Paris Jackson speaks everything from her father's death to sexual assault as a teenager. 

In 2009 Michael Jackson died from cardiac arrest in the middle of the night from a mix of prescription drugs, Paris was only 11-years-old. 

The 18-year-old daughter of the late king of pop said that she believes her father's cause of death was murder, in an interview with Rolling Stone

"He would drop hints about people being out to get him. And at some point he was like, 'they're gonna kill me one day,'" she said. 

"It sounds like a conspiracy theory and it sounds like bullsh*t, but everybody in the family knows it. It was a setup."

Paris blames Michael's personal physician Dr Conrad Murray, who was sentenced to four years in jail for involuntary manslaughter, for her father's dependency on the prescription drug propofol. However, she believes the real cause is far more sinister. 

She told the magazine, "a lot of people" wanted him dead.

The young now-model also opened up about her severe struggle with depression, drug addiction, and self-hatred as a young teenager. 

In 2013, at the age of 15, she attempted to take her own life, but not for the first time. It was the teenager's third attempt which resulted in her being hospitalised - which led to it being made public. 

"It was just self-hatred, low self-esteem, thinking that I couldn't do anything right, not thinking I was worthy of living anymore," she said. 

Many of Paris' tattoos have been placed to cover up the scars of self-harm and track marks from drug use. 

She also spoke of the traumatic experience of being sexually assaulted at the young age of only 14 - something she has never publicly spoken about before. 

She said a much older "complete stranger" assaulted her. "I don't want to give away too many details. But it was not a good experience at all, and it was really hard for me, and, at the time, I didn't tell anybody." 

After her last attempt of taking her life, Paris was sent to a therapeutic school in Utah which she said completely changed her life.

"It was great for me... I'm a completely different person. 

"I was crazy. I was actually crazy. I was going through a lot of, like, teen angst. And I was also dealing with my depression and my anxiety without any help." 

She said she was prescribed the same drugs as her father was once given, however, is no longer on any prescription medication. 

The 18-year-old spends most of her time with her 26-year-old boyfriend, Michael Snoddy. She recently just made her modelling debut with Chanel (pictured above) and says she wants to get into acting and make her own living, despite the fact she's an heir to Michael's fortune. 

Paris says she is now sober and happier than ever.
