Not only does Paris Hilton share a name with Michael Jackson‘s daughter, Paris Jackson, the celebutante reveals that the late King of Pop asked her mom Kathy Hilton for permission to use the name.“My mom and Michael went to high school together and they were best friends since they were 13,” she tells Extra. “So I grew up knowing Michael very well and when he had his daughter, he always loved the name Paris and grew up being an uncle to me. So he asked my mom if it was okay and of course she said yes and I think she’s such a beautiful little girl and I’m proud we have the same name.”
