Michael Jackson's daughter Paris has revealed that the late King of Pop was a loving and supportive father, and that she misses him everyday.

The 15-year-old said her father, who died in June 2009 after being given a lethal dose of Propofol by his doctor, Conrad Murray, had a very supportive and loving influence on her, as well as by her brothers Prince Michael, 16, and Blanket, 11.

"I have lots of memories of my father. He was incredible. We all loved him to death. He would try to educate us as much as he could and was always looking out for us. He was very protective," quoted her as saying in her first interview.

Michael once wrote a heartfelt note to Paris telling her how much he loved her, and she admits she is waiting until she turns 18 to get it tattooed onto her wrist. She also wants to get another special tattoo.

"I want to get it tattooed on my left wrist and my grandma's name tattooed on my right wrist when I am old enough," she said.

The short-haired starlet and her siblings led a very sheltered life until Michael's death and were rarely seen in public as their father chose to shield their faces with masks.

"The masks were his idea. He didn't want anyone to see what we looked like. That way we could have what he didn't, which was a normal childhood," she added.

Paris also confirmed she was rebuilding her relationship with her publicity-shy birth mother, Debbie Rowe, who signed over her custody rights of Paris and her elder brother Prince Michael in 1999.
