In case you didn't already know, Paris Jackson lives her life just as she pleases. That means she regularly claps back at followers criticizing her and is always unapologetic about her body, social media presence, and lifestyle, no matter what the haters are saying. 

In the same vein, Jackson chose to spend her birthday with a controversial figure, even though it had many of her followers deeply concerned.

Paris Jackson rang in her 20th birthday with a whole slew of A-list friends — including Chris Brown.

The duo celebrated with cake and lots of laughs, but not everyone was pleased with their hangout.

Fans are sharing their disapproving opinions on Jackson spending time with Brown.

People still haven't forgiven the rapper for his abusive past with ex-girlfriend Rihanna.

Rightfully so.

Some may be confused or shocked by their friendship, but actually they've been friends for years, all thanks to Michael Jackson.

Brown looked up to Jackson as a mentor in the music industry, and Jackson often spoke highly of him in return. The rapper and Jackson's daughter have stayed in touch ever since.

Some are OK with the friendship for the sake of Michael Jackson's memory.

Still, it makes sense that fans are concerned with Jackson supporting Brown with his disturbing history of violence. Jackson has yet to speak out about the controversy.
