Michael Jackson’s daughter has admonished fresh reports that her father had stockpiled “sickening” pornographic images showing naked boys, animal sacrifice and child torture.
Paris Jackson, 18, took to Twitter hours ago to fire back at the newly-surfaced police documents which date back to 13-year-old Gavin Arvizo’s 2003 child molestation accusations.
“Unfortunately negativity will always sell. I urge you all to ignore the trash and the parasites who make a career trying to slander my father,” Paris Jackson wrote.
“The most pure people are always torn down. It will continue to be proven that my beloved dad has always been and forever will be innocent,” she added an hour later.
Earlier in the day, previously unseen police documents claimed a team of 70 officers found books filled with photographs of children’s faces superimposed on adult bodies, boys naked or undressing, and a child holding a dead goose, when they raided Jackson’s Neverland Ranch in 2003 while he was in Las Vegas.
“In a book Jackson called ‘Room to Play’, there is a deeply disturbing photo of a [murdered child beauty queen] JonBenet Ramsey lookalike with a noose around her neck,” a private investigator told Radar Online, which claims to have obtained the “never-before-seen police reports” of the raid.
“Michael even used photos of his own nephews, who were in the band 3T, in their underwear to excite young boys.”

Former Santa Barbara Senior Assistant District Attorney Ron Zonen, who helped prosecute Jackson, said the material was used to “desensitise children”.
“Michael admitted taking one child after another into bed with him for long periods of time,” he said.
“We identified five different boys, who all made allegations of sexual abuse. There’s not much question in my mind that Michael was guilty of child molestation.”

Earlier on Monday, Ms Jackson slammed internet trolls who had criticised her for not memorialising her father on social media over the weekend – with Father’s Day falling on the third Sunday of June in the US and UK.
“If you try to harass someone into posting online about a holiday (Father’s Day), ask yourself if it’s any of your business,” she tweeted.
