Paris Jackson jets to Hamilton Island after Melbourne Cup drama

It's a tough life for Paris Jackson.

On Wednesday morning, the only daughter of the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson, jetted to the exclusive resort of Qualia in Hamilton Island for some much needed R&R following a day of posing for photographers and speaking to a handful of select media on a rumoured $100,000 pay cheque at Melbourne Cup.

The 19-year-old might have felt like she needed to get away from the media scrutiny that questioned her unusual appearance as the VIP guest of Myer in the Birdcage at "the race that stops a nation."

It included opting not to wear a custom dress by one of Myer's most beloved designers, Alex Perry, and reportedly also wanting to wear cowboy boots at one of the most stylish events on the Australian calendar.

She instead opted for a casual, rust coloured Morrison dress with beige leather boots and a quartz crown by Melbourne milliner Ann Shoebridge that seemed to suit her natural bohemian style.

Later in the day, Jackson, who does not speak about her famous family, was spotted joking around, pressing her nose and tongue against a window in the Myer marquee - a scene that was photographed and placed in today's The Herald Sun alongside the headline: "Wacko Jacko 2.0."

The reference to her late father upset the teenager with Jackson taking to her Twitter account to slam the tabloid.

It is her first trip to Australia, the country where her parents - Michael Jackson and Debbie Rowe were married at the Sheraton Hotel in Sydney in November 1996, when Rowe was six months pregnant with their son.
