Paris Jackson breaks down in tears following the death of Joe Jackson

Paris Jackson revealed she was at her grandfather Joe Jackson’s bedside when he passed away at the age of 89 on June 27 following a battle with pancreatic cancer.

The 20-year-old, who is Michael Jackson’s daughter, has paid tribute to the “first true Jackson” in a heartfelt Instagrampost.

Sharing a picture which appears to show her and Joe’s hands entwined on a hospital bed, as well as various images of the patriarch, she wrote: "Spending those last few moments with you were everything.

“Being able to tell you everything I needed to tell you before saying goodbye was such a blessing.”

She continued: “Everyone that came to visit you, came with love, respect, and so much pride in their hearts for you.

“Proud of you, proud to be your children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, proud to have your strength and share the dynasty you spent your life creating, and proud to be a Jackson."

Paris, an actress and model, described her grandfather as the "first true Jackson" and "the legend that started it all".

“None of us would be anywhere near where we're at if it wasn't for you,” she added.

"You are the strongest man I know. Your life's work will go down in history, as will you, to be known as one of the greatest patriarchs to ever live.

She revealed: “I will cherish every moment with you till the day I die, especially our last moments.

“Being able to hold your hand, lay with you and cuddle you, give you kisses all over your cheeks and forehead, meant more to me than you'll ever know.

”Quoting advice you gave me when I was a little kid and seeing your eyes light up, sharing stories my dad used to tell me about you, telling a joke and hearing you laugh for the last time. My heart is full knowing we left each other in that way."

Paris promised to keep Joe’s legacy alive for generations to come and said he will “never be forgotten”.

Paris penned: "My great grandchildren will know who Joseph Jackson is. I love you grandpa so, so, so much that words can't describe.

“I have immense gratitude for you and always will. We all feel that way. Thank you for everything, truly. Rest in peace and transition."

The post finished with: "I'll see you in my dreams very, very soon."
