After a scary couple of years that included an epic family feud and a suicide attempt, Paris Jackson seems healthier and happier than ever. It seems the credit for the smile on her face goes partly to her new boyfriend, Chester Castellaw.
Michael Jackson's only daughter and her soccer player beau were spotted looking adorably coupled up in Malibu this week, making pumping gas appear as romantic as a candlelit dinner. Jackson, 17, and Castellaw, 18, have been dating since earlier this year and went public with their relationship in April. Since then, Jackson — who spent a year at boarding school in Utah following her attempt at taking her own life — has shared the occasional pic of her new man on social media, but mostly seems to be enjoying a more normal life than she has in years.
Even her guardian TJ Jackson seems to approve of Castellaw. “No one’s perfect, but he’s a good boy, so I approve of him… He treats her well. She’s happy,” Jackson said of his cousin's boyfriend in August.
We couldn't be happier for Paris. But, if Castellaw is going to be part of the family, he's going to have to learn to keep all those names straight. Hopefully he'll fare better than New Yorkers, who had a hard time naming all the members of the Jackson 5. Watch below:
