Socialite Paris Hilton has claimed that the late 'King of Pop' Michael Jackson named his daughter after her.
The 28-year old hotel heiress claimed that her mother Kathy and Jackson were childhood friends and the Thriller hitmaker had asked her mother if he could name his daughter Paris.
"My mom and Michael went to high school together and they were best friends since they were 13. 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," Hilton said during an appearance on US TV show Extra.
The Simple Life star added that she is glad the legend's daughter shares her name as she is a beautiful girl.
"Michael 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," Hilton said.
