Out and about and looking oh-so-happy!
That was many readers’ first impressions when photos surfaced just last month of Paris Jackson finishing a workout in her Los Angeles neighborhood. Looking fit and healthy in black leggings and a shirt that read “Be your own kind of beautiful,” the 17-year-old was all smiles when spotted out with a mystery guy.
Well, with a little bit of searching, E! News has learned the man in question is soccer player Chester Castellaw. Currently, the Real So Cal soccer club member is in the middle of another busy season as he competes in the well-regarded league.
He also appears to be staying in shape with Michael Jackson‘s daughter by his side. After an afternoon workout, the twosome was spotted smiling and chatting before leaving the park. Castellaw also even grabbed Paris on her upper leg.
A who’s who of the Jackson family members
The famous teenager was launched into the limelight after giving an emotional eulogy at her father’s funeral. “Ever since I was born, Daddy has been the best father you could ever imagine,” she said at the time.
But since Michael’s death, Paris and her siblings including Michael and Blanket have spent much of their time living with family including grandmother Katherine Jackson.
Although she attempted suicide back in the summer of 2013, the famous daughter has been able to gradually heal, attend boarding school in Utah and even get back to living a more private life.
“She is doing a lot better. She is getting back to normal,” a source recently revaled to E! News. “Utah has been exactly what she needed to get better. She is in a much better place.”
