*Reports of Paris Jackson storming out of a Dior fashion show in Paris, France have not been clear about the reason, but sources are saying that Michael Jackson’s daughter was upset over the designer’s use of performing animals.
The show at a chateau recreated a Mexican rodeo with all-female riders performing daredevil stunts. (Watch video above.)
As a rainstorm raged around the event, causing models to work a runway slick with water, Jackson reportedly walked out on the show right as the first model emerged.
The New York Times reported: “By the end, the only cloud that remained over the event was the jarring exit of Paris Jackson, who had pranced in puddles barefoot for the photographers before the show, but stalked out in a rage as the first model made her way down the runway.”
WWD added in a review that Jackson visibly, “huffed out barefoot, having earlier asked two assistants to help her out of her high-heeled sandals. Whether the issue was animal welfare, or simply an extreme aversion to rain, was not clear.”
And Harper’s Bazaar reported: “Not everyone was a fan of the horses though, as Paris Jackson was spotted leaving the show only minutes in, presumably out of concern for animal welfare.”
Jackson’s reps have yet to comment, while Jackson herself addressed her exit in a vague Instagram post. “Left early and did this,” she wrote, with a pic of herself staring skyward solo.
