"A grilling of a child regarding the loss of her father is going to create a lot of pressure," Jackson trial lawyer Kevin Boyle said Wednesday. "Paris Jackson was asked intimate details about her father and her father's death; it was a very intense situation."
AEG Live lawyer Marvin Putnam denied his team was tough on Paris Jackson in her deposition.
In between the headlines, Paris continues in school, formulating her own dreams. She's a cheerleader for her high school's basketball team.
The teen was recently reunited with her mother, Debbie Rowe, who bowed out of her life when she was an infant. Paris has been spending time with Rowe at her horse farm.
Rowe is the biological mother of Prince and Paris. The couple divorced in 1999, with Rowe giving Jackson full custody while she got an $8.5 million settlement, according to court documents. Jackson later agreed to additional support.
Rowe said in a 2003 interview, later obtained by ABC News, that she became close to Jackson in 1996 when she consoled him after his brief marriage to Lisa Marie Presley ended.
Paris' first solo TV interview was in December 2011, with Ellen DeGeneres. She told the host that as a young girl she did not realize Michael Jackson was so famous.
DeGeneres asked Paris whether she would be compared to her father if she performed music.
"Well, I understand that I will be put on a certain level compared to him, and I might not meet everybody's standards," Paris replied.
"But, I mean, it's me," she said to applause.
