TMZ was the first to break the news, with their sources saying the split was amicable, with the relationship just having “run its course”. She’s now quarantining at home alone.

The news certainly explains her recent shoutout to fans on Instagram, in which she wrote:

“I wanted to thank FacebookWatch as well for allowing me to share my story which was accurate for its time, the time it was filmed.”

Accurate for “the time it was filmed” — meaning it made sense to call it Unfiltered: Paris Jackson and Gabriel Glenn when she was still “and Gabriel Glenn”.

As we previously reported, the Facebook Watch docu-series gave fans unprecedented access to Paris. This included shutting down some misconceptions about her love life; one major thing she shared was that despite what the public had seen, she had actually “dated more women than men.” She even revealed her famous poppa Michael Jackson had clocked her sexuality at a young age.

Jackson specified in the series that she did not identify as bisexual, saying:

“It has nothing to do with what’s in your pants. It has nothing to do with your XY chromosome makeup, it’s literally just like what you are like as a person.”

Now in an interview with People magazine, which happens to perfectly coincide with the breakup, she’s explaining exactly what that means — which is, kind of, not having to explain it?? She says while having others mislabel her sexuality isn’t exactly “hurtful,” it just “doesn’t feel right” to label it at all. She explained:

“I don’t feel like there is a label for my sexuality that fits. Labels in general, not just for sexuality but for everything, I think, are just ways for humans to make sense of the world, to be able to compartmentalize … We’re getting past the need for labels. It’s beautiful.”

Sounds like the newly single young woman is opening a lot of doors right now!

Good for her!

Paris had also revealed on the show some scary mental health episodes from her past, including self-harm and multiple suicide attempts. As the coronavirus crisis continues, the singer shared how she takes care of herself in uncertain times. She said:

“Everyone has different ways of coping with depression and anxiety. I encourage anyone going through it to research as much as they can to find what fits them best. For me, I just try to practice meditation and DBT (dialectical behavior therapy), I try to surround myself with people, places and things that feed my soul and make me happy.”

She’s recently found solace in all forms of art (including “music, writing, playing, painting”), but of course, music has been a huge outlet. She added:

“All musicians inspire me, even the ones I don’t really listen to. I don’t really have a writing process. I usually get a random impulse to pick up the guitar and a song will just come out in 20 to 30 minutes. It kind of just happens.”

The artist, who has been vocal about her activism on social media, also had a message about advocacy amidst ongoing unrest and Black Lives Matter protests across the country.

Jackson shared:

“The message I hope people get is to just do your part. Don’t be an a**hole. Do what you can to make this world a better place. There’s no such thing as ‘enough activism for the day.’ We all need to get to work and get our hands dirty. No one is going to do it for us.”

It’s been so interesting to gain some insight into Paris’ life through her show — we’re sure she’ll continue to use her voice to speak up for what she believes in!
