Michael sadly died on June 25, 2009, when he was just 50 years old from a drug overdose. In a previous interview, Paris claimed her famous dad was murdered. “[My dad] would drop hints about people being out to get him. And at some point he was like, ‘They’re gonna kill me one day,’” she said at the time. “It sounds like a total conspiracy theory and it sounds like bulls—t, but all real fans and everybody in the family knows it. It was a setup. It was bulls—t.”

She even honored her late father by getting a tattoo on her foot to remember him. Paris got the word “Applehead” inked across her left foot, which was the nickname her late father used for her. “With every step I take, you lift my foot and guide me forward. Love you,” she captioned an Instagram picture of the body art. So sweet.
