While his children undoubtedly viewed him as their father in every way possible, Michael Jackson is still fielding paternity questions even after his death. His daughter Paris recently had a haircut in Las Vegas and has learned that the salon swept up the discarded locks to ensure her privacy was maintained.

Paris visited the trendy Amp Salon at the Palms Resort and Casino accompanied by a bodyguard and her tutors 'Sister Rose' and 'Aunt Emily' in August.

"After the stylist had cut off about two inches of her hair Sister Rose scrapped the clippings-up and put them in a clear plastic baggy," Alicia Jacobs, a KVBC reporter who was at the salon during Paris' visit, told “She did the same thing after the final cut was over and I realized it must have been to stop somebody from stealing them for any DNA testing or to maybe sell on EBay.”

“She was very polite and was joking that she had been ‘dancing in the rain’ after a shower had suddenly hit Las Vegas," Jacobs remembered. "At first she got a green manicure, to match the limos at the Palms."

Jacobs was impressed by how composed the little girl was: “I was actually blown away by her - she was very polite and gracious with everybody and seemed to be coping really well after everything she went through."

Paris’ godfather Mark Lester has claimed that he is her biological father. In a recent television interview with The Today Show Lester insisted his sperm could have used to father Paris, Prince, 12, and Blanket, 7.

“There’s a possibility that one, or all - very unlikely all – but one of those kids may be mine,” he revealed.

Palms spokesperson Larry Fink confirmed that Paris did visit the Amp salon where a style-cut would have cost the famous girl between $100 and $150. The salon would not comment.
