Ireland Baldwin To Paris Jackson: You’re Not Alone

Ireland-baldwin

Ireland Baldwin – the daughter of Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger – knows what it’s like to be thrust into the spotlight because of your famous parents, and she has some words of advice for another celeb offspring who’s going through a tough time – Paris Jackson. Ireland had this to say to Michael Jackson‘s teen daughter after her suicide attempt last week.

“All of us, no matter who you are, get tons of Twitter negativity and there [are] some people that say horrific things but she just shouldn’t mind them,” Ireland told ET. “[Paris] has so many people that support her.”

“I think she is a gorgeous girl. She’s one of the most beautiful girls her age I’ve ever seen. It saddens me to see her going through something like that.”

The 17-year-old says she’s had her own share of bullying, and had some words of wisdom for Paris.

“We’ve all been teased and had our hair pulled now and then. …. I have gone through things with girls and I think it takes time and maturity to say ‘OK, they are going to say this about me and they are going to comment on how I look…and [people] are always going to have an opinion’ and it’s best to just shut it out.”

    I find this whole situation terribly tragic. I loved Michael but I feel as if his children were at a disadvantage from the get-go. Walking around in masks all the time. It’s really sad.

      Its because they walked around in masks that they were actually able to go about WITHOUT him barefaced and have a good time with whomever they were out with at the time. Just imagine if he had done it differently, would they have had and semblance of peace when ever they stepped out. I am a big MJ fan and even I wondered what the hell he was doing, but I understood it when i thought about it.

      It was only just before he died we saw the older two without masks and even then it was very limited. When he died we got an overshare of these kids.The family Knew how he felt about his kids privacy, damn near the whole frigging world knew, yet they parade these damn kid before the media.Paris did and interview with Ellen,,,what for. She did one with Oprah..why exactly was that necessary.

      I think where Michael messed up was not leaving an updated will, his will was approximately 10yrs old. Older than his youngest child at the time. It appears that he went out of his way to avoid his family, yes he was on drugs, but you get the feeling that it was more that he and them didn’t gel well, yet this is the same family he left them to, and look at what been happening.

      i always did wonder why both him and Janet, always appeared seperate from family.

    I don’t think Paris problem is ‘only’ bullying. Her father died, her mother was not in her life untile recently and then when they reconciled she sold photos and stories for money. Oh and the Jackson family is fighting to grab MJ’s money and get custody of his sons and daughter.. I think that’s something that need a really long and good theraphy. I don’t know how Paris and her brother can go though this at such a young age.
