It's been seven years since the King of Pop passed away.
It's hard to believe that seven years have passed since Michael Jackson died on June 25th, 2009.
His friends and family paid tribute to the late King of Pop on their various social media accounts over the weekend.
Sister La Toya Jackson posted a picture of her brother asking people to "let him #rip".
Daughter Paris who continually posts tributes on social media to her father, posted a photo collage to Instagram calling her father her "best friend".
7 years, rest in peace, my best friend in the entire universe. i love you more than anything. things may be a little shitty in the press right now but everyone knows it's all bull and i swear on the family name i will protect you for as long as i live. there's no one like you, and there never will be. thank you for touching millions of hearts, but especially my own. ❤️
Michael's nephew also remembered his uncle in a tweet saying it's been a "darker world ever since".
7 years ago we lost one of our brightest lights and it has been a darker world ever since. #MJforever— Taj Jackson (@tajjackson3) 25 June 2016
