Even Michael Jackson’s children aren’t exempt from one harsh reality of teen life: bullying. Just ask his daughter, Paris Jackson.

In an interview with Oprah Winfrey on last night’s episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter, Michael’s only daughter discussed life at her new private school now that she is no longer home schooled. One of the issues she said she encountered was girls who bullied her.

"People have tried [to bully me]," she explained to Oprah. "But it doesn’t always work. "

Paris continued to say that the bullying has been done in-person as well as cyber.

But, much like her father, she has learned to deal with it, especially when it comes to dealing with seemingly friendly people with not so good intensions.

"If I feel someone is being fake to me,” she told Oprah, "I will just push them away."

Late last year, Paris entered into the world of entertainment when she signed on to star in the mixed-animation and live action film Lundun's Bridge and the Three Keys. is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
