Why Kelsey Grammer Cried When Talking About The First Time He Met Paris Jackson

Kelsey Grammer became emotional when opening up about the very first time he met his "The Space Between" co-star, Paris Jackson. According to People, Grammar revealed that he was first introduced to Paris when she was just a child after bumping into her late father, Michael Jackson, in a hotel. 

"I was checking into the Waldorf and there was Michael [Jackson]. He was recording something. It was just the sweetest moment," the "Frasier" star revealed during an interview with Extra. "He stopped to say hello. We sort of shook hands and he had his little mask on but then she said, 'Daddy'," he added. 

During the interview, Grammer explained that the King of Pop would cover his children's faces with masks in an attempt to conceal their identity from the onlooking media, and the actor began to cry while discussing Michael's interactions with Paris during the encounter. "He just took her in his arms and said, 'Oh, hello, little one.' She was so lovely and it was just beautiful ... She was the cutest thing and she is still pretty darn cute."

Paris Jackson opened up about suffering from PTSD

As People reported, the actor went on to share his amazement at how Michael Jackson handled the intense pressures of living in the spotlight. "Boy, they went after him, took shots at him all the time, and I thought, 'How the hell do you handle that?'" He concluded, "I've had my share."

Speaking to Willow Smith on an episode of Facebook Watch's "Red Table Talk," Paris Jackson discussed the negative impact of the overwhelming media attention placed on her family throughout her childhood, revealing that she now suffers from PTSD following some intense encounters with paparazzi. 

"I experience auditory hallucinations sometimes with camera clicks and severe paranoia and have been going to therapy for a lot of things, but that included ... I'll hear a trash bag rustling and flinch in panic." Opening up to Smith, Jackson added, "I think it's standard PTSD."
