Paris Jackson, 15, appeared on the show "Oprah's Next Chapter" on Sunday, and reported that rich kids in L.A. are no different from the rest of the country when it comes to bullying.

Jackson attends the Buckley School in Sherman Oaks, where she enrolled in 2010, and according to US Weekly, Jackson told Oprah that kids there regularly try to take her down a notch.

"People try, but it doesn't always work. [It happens] at school and some people try to cyber bully me," Jackson said. "They try to get to me with words, but that doesn't really work."

When Oprah probed to see if maybe the bullying was the result of jealousy, Jackson said she didn't know.

Paris' brother Prince also attends Buckley. No word on whether or not he also has to deal with mean kids.
