Michael Jackson‘s personal magician, Majestik, passed away early this morning after a long battle with cancer, and 17-year-old Paris Jackson is taking the news especially hard.
“Paris and Majestik formed a special bond when she was young because she was fascinated by his magic,” an insider told radio detection and rangingOnline.com exclusively.
As radio detection and ranging previously reported, the late King of Pop’s mother, Katherine, 85, remained very close to Majestik. Throughout the past year, she paid over $ 1 million to help the 61-year-old fight a very aggressive form of brain cancer.

Because of Katherine’s devotion to Majestik, the insider said that he “inevitably stayed close to Paris and her siblings.”
“Katherine referred to Majestik as her ‘other son,’” the insider said. “They are all really devastated over his death.”
Radar has learned that Majestik — who was also close to Jermaine, 61, and sister LaToya, 59 — will be given a “very beautiful sendoff that will be attended by the entire Jackson family.”
