Brooke Shields talks reuniting with Paris Jackson and her last contact with Michael

On Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, model and actress Brooke Shields spoke about running into Michael Jackson’s daughter Paris at New York Fashion Week last fall. Brooke and Michael had been friends since the early 1980s and remained close until his death in 2009. In fact, she spoke at his memorial service, and that’s the last time she had seen Paris, who was 11 at the time.

Of the touching reunion, Brooke said, “I recently met Paris at the Calvin Klein show. … She turned to me and she said, ‘So you’re my dad’s friend.’ And I was so … because I’d only seen her when she was a baby and she didn’t remember me. So I said, ‘Yes, I am.’ I waited awhile, looked back at her and said, ‘I really miss your dad.’ She looked at me and said, ‘Me too.’ It was just a pure moment.”

Brooke also remembered the last interaction she had with Michael before he died.

“He sent me a beautiful, beautiful floral arrangement when my dad died,” Brooke said. “I still have the vase.”
