Paris Jackson blasts photographer over TV interview
Michael Jackson's daughter Paris has slammed a fashion photographer for sharing snaps of the teen and her boyfriend on the set of a sexy photoshoot without their permission.
The 18-year-old and her punk rocker boyfriend Michael Snoddy posed for their first joint photo session with Troy Jensen last month (Aug16), when Paris shared a few behind the scenes shots on social media.
This week (begs12Sep16), Jensen allowed editors at U.S. news show Entertainment Tonight to broadcast the images, in which Paris shows off a rocker glam look as she bites Snoddy's lower lip in one edgy shot, while another features her man sitting on the ground completely naked, except for black shoes and socks, wrapping his legs around Paris' feet as she stands tall in a red dress, with a spiked leather jacket hanging around her arms.
Other pictures show Paris sitting in a bathtub with a topless Snoddy, while the Street Drum Corps musician kisses her neck from behind in another snap as she wears a distressed blue T-shirt bearing her father's name.
In an accompanying interview, Jensen claimed the young couple, which recently dismissed engagement rumours, couldn't keep their hands off each other throughout the shoot.
"I set them in the shot, and she's wearing this red dress with this leather jacket. She had this black lip, and they would just start making out like crazy," he told ET. "So after like five or six shots, he would have black lip(stick) all over his face, all over his ears."
"We had to keep breaking to clean them up and re-touch up the make-up and wipe all the black lipstick off Snoddy's face," he continued. "They were kissing, biting, pulling, hugging... I mean, I was just snapping the picture."
"She would hold his face and bite his lips and kiss him. She wasn't worried about what anyone thought on set, or how it looked."
However, Paris has taken issue with Jensen's comments because she claims they were just doing what the photographer asked of them.
She took to Twitter on Wednesday (14Sep16) and posted a screenshot of Jensen discussing the pictures on TV.
"you forgot to tell everyone about the part where you TOLD US to do everything we did in the shoot, sweetheart (sic)," she wrote alongside the snap, before taking aim at him for going public with the photos.
"not to mention the fact that he gave those pictures to ET and didn't ask for my, or snoddy's, approval on any of them," she complained. "i mean after this, what model is going to want him to shoot them if they know he's THIS untrustworthy?"
Jensen has yet to respond to Paris' Twitter outburst.
