Gabriel Glenn is an American musician who is currently in the news for his relationship with Michael Jackson’s daughter, Paris Jackson. The two are members of Jackson’s band, 'The Soundflowers,' and have performed in a couple of live shows to date. Glenn is also part of a metal band called 'Trash Dogs.' The band has performed alongside Jackson's cousin Austin Brown. Glenn and Jackson opened up about their relationship in 2018. However, it is not known exactly when they had started dating. Jackson, who has had a string of affairs in the past, was already romantically involved with someone else when she met Glenn for the first time. The two are now in love with each other, and Jackson often displays her emotions for Glenn through her 'Instagram' posts. They also attend red-carpet events together.
Relationship with Jackson
Glenn and Jackson’s relationship was first revealed to the public through an 'Instagram' post in June 2018. The post put an end to their relationship rumors that had surfaced previously. The two claimed to be “just friends” and “bandmates.’’
Ever since their relationship has been out in public, they have continued to show their love for each other through Jackson’s social-media accounts.
Music has played a crucial role in bringing Glenn and Jackson closer. The two sing, play instruments, and record folksy music for their duo, 'The Soundflowers.' Jackson plays the ukulele, while Glenn is the guitarist of the band. They both sing for the duo, too. According to Jackson, their "first official gig" was in 2019, at 'The Mint' in Los Angeles. They performed a mix of originals and covers, including one for Bob Marley’s 'Redemption Song,' which holds a special significance for the couple, as explained by Glenn later. The audience was expecting the music to be similar to that of Michael Jackson’s, but Jackson and Glenn are fond of 'Scarborough Fair’-like earnest folk-rock music. They were both in matching round-lens tinted shades and quirky neo-hippie attire as they entered the stage barefoot. The two have performed at a fundraising event for 'F— Cancer' in August 2018.
The two now have an impressive fan following and are looking forward to signing under big record labels. Reportedly, 'Universal' has shown their interest in signing the pair for a project.
According to some of their mutual friends, Glenn is extremely supportive of Jackson. Whether it is her struggle with substance abuse or her pursuits in music, Glenn has always stood beside Jackson. He understands the kind of pressure she has for being the daughter of an icon and thus gives her full creative freedom while composing music. Jackson does not cover her father’s songs. The songs they use for their band had been written by Jackson when she was battling depression and drug addiction as a teenager. Glenn has mostly written the love songs that are dedicated to her. He once wrote a song called 'Glorious' for Jackson as a Christmas gift.
In March 2019, Jackson and Glenn were spotted at the premiere of the 'Netflix' biopic 'The Dirt,' after rumors of her being hospitalized following a suicide attempt surfaced. They wore matching black leather jackets at the event. More recently, in October 2019, the two attended an 'amFAR Gala,' where Jackson sported a gorgeous rose-gold gown and sported lilac-tinted hair that matched Glenn’s long, sleek tresses.
A few days later, Glenn and Jackson were seen at her godfather Macauley Culkin’s podcast, 'Bunny Ears,' at ‘Largo at the Coronet.’ Jackson had opened up about her sexual orientation and revealed her open relationship with model Cara Delevingne through a ''tweet'' in the past.
