Despite Pairs' determination to carry on as normal, the schoolgirl has plenty of turmoil at home.First up, a wrongful death lawsuit was launched against AEG Live claiming the massive touring company was negligent in hiring and supervising Dr. Conrad Murray - who killed her father with a massive overdose of Propofol.
Light hearted: Michael Jackson's 15-year-old daughter Paris Jackson posted this pic to Twitter on Thursday, in the wake of the renewed molestation allegations against her father
Then, 30-year-old choreographer Wade Robson made new claims that he was abused by Michael Jackson, even though he denied this occurred on the stand during the pop star's molestation trial in 2005.
A day of denial: Wade Robson in 2005, after testifying that Michael Jackson never molested himMeanwhile, earlier in the day, Robson went on the Today show to explain why he's asking for money from the Jackson estate and why he's making these new allegations at this time.
'I said what I understood and I said what I was able to say,' he explained. 'From seven years old, from day one of the abuse, Michael told me that we loved each other and this was love, this was an expression of our love.
'And then he would follow it up with "but if you ever tell anyone what we are doing both of our lives and careers would be over."'The Jackson estate's lawyer, Howard Weitzman, has dismissed Robson's claims.
'This is a young man who has testified at least twice under oath over the past 20 years and said in numerous interviews that Michael Jackson never did anything inappropriate to him or with him,' Weitzman said in a statement to Today. 'Now, nearly four years after Michael has passed, this sad and less-than-credible claim has been made.'In response to Robson's Today Show interview, Michael's nephew Taj Jackson took to Twitter to reveal that he had actually been molested as a child and knew the choreographer wasn't telling the truth.

'That is how I KNOW Wade is lying. Because I AM a survivor,' Taj tweeted. He followed with: 'I was sexually abuse (sic). By [a family member] on my mom's side of the family when I was a kid.'As for Paris, her public response appeared to be much more subtle.
Michael's eldest child also appears to have made a number of other changes in her life over the past month, beyond her shorter, red hairstyle.

The teenager has also talked about rebuilding her father's Neverland Ranch, restoring it to the way it 'used to be' when she was brought up.'I think it should be restored to how it used to be, so that the children who couldn’t have a childhood could have fun there. That was his goal – like kids in a hospital,' Paris told The Mail on Sunday newspaper’s Event magazine. 'They should restore all the rides and everything. As soon as I’m an adult – I’m on it. Count on it.'
