A chef working for the Jackson family testified during Michael Jackson’s wrongful death trial on Tuesday that Paris Jackson hasn’t celebrated her birthday since her dad’s demise.

A few weeks ago Paris tried to take her own life by cutting herself with a knife and overdosing on Ibuprofen tablets.

The King of Pop passed away in 2009 from acute propofol intoxication.

Jackson family matriarch Katherine filed a lawsuit against concert giant AEG Live for the wrongful death of Michael on behalf of his three children Prince, Paris and Blanket.

The plaintiffs claim AEG hired Dr. Conrad Murray negligently which ultimately led to Michael’s death. The physician administered a lethal dose of the hypnotic drug and was convicted of manslaughter.

Family chef Kai Chase took the stand Tuesday during the court trial.

According to the Associated Press, Kai revealed that Paris was deeply emotionally damaged due to the loss of her father.

The teenager’s birthday is on April 3 and apparently in 2009 Michael hired a private circus to perform for his daughter.

Michael died June 25, 2009 and according to Kai the carnival party was Paris’ last birthday celebration.

“Paris hasn’t had any birthdays since,” Chase testified. “She hasn’t wanted to celebrate since.”

Apparently the Jacksons remain engaged in an ongoing feud about Michael’s estate.

The King of Pop's siblings Janet, Rebbie and Randy demanded last year the executors of their brother's estate resign amid claims his 2002 will was a fake.
