If you have not kept up with Paris and last saw her dedicating a speech to her loving father at his funeral, you will be surprised to find out what the late singer's daughter has been up to.
The daughter of the most famous musician is becoming a star in her own right; she acts, models, plays instruments, and is an activist. And like her father, she is so passionate about necessary changes in society and being a positive influence. Michael Jackson was also a very giving man throughout his extensive career; he would lavish Elizabeth Taylor with diamonds and other jewelry and perfume that easily cost him millions. After discovering that Jackson's children all receive a fair share allowance of $8 million a year, we also discovered that the apple does not fall far from the tree; Paris, uses her yearly allowance not only on herself, but her loved ones as well. However, Paris does not smother others with her money as much as her father; she knows her limits and does not go overboard.
