It's a far cry from the mask-covered public appearances of her youth. Paris Jackson, middle child of the late Michael Jackson, stepped out Thursday night in Los Angeles with boyfriend Chester Castellaw in tow. This time, there was no Halloween mask on her face.
The years following her father's death have been difficult for Jackson, though it seems the 17-year-old is happier and healthier than ever, judging by these photos taken nearly two years since her attempted suicide, as well as recent pics posted to Castellaw's private Instagram account. Castellaw, 18, plays forward for the Real So Cal youth soccer club, and the two reportedly met after Jackson returned to California from the boarding school in Utah she attended.
