Paris Jackson Attempts Suicide, Is Under Doctor’s Supervision (UPDATED)
Paris Jackson reportedly tried to kill herself on Saturday morning.
The 20-year old daughter of Michael Jackson was thankfully unsuccessful, but she is currently in the hospital and her family is very concerned.
Scroll down for all the details we have at this time…
According to TMZ, police and the paramedics both responded to Jackson’s Los Angeles home at 7:30 a.m today.
It’s unclear at this time exactly what state Paris was in and who called 911 — but sources tell this website that Paris slit her wrists.
She was immidately transported to a hospital and placed on 5150 hold – which allows an individual with a purported mental illness to be involuntarily detained for a 72-hour psychiatric hospitalization – and is in stable condition.
TMZ reports with confidence that Paris tried to take her own life as a “direct response to the allegations made against her father in Leaving Neverland,” the recently-aired documentary in which Wade Robson and James Safechuck accuse Michael Jackson of molesting them as kids.
While such allegations have mostly been public knowledges for decades, this documentary depicted them in personal, sensitive and great detail for the first time in the eyes of many viewers.
Just a day before this alleged suicide attempt, we here at The Hollywood Gossip has written about how Jackson’s loved ones were worried she might relapse into drug or alcohol use.
Or even something worse.
The 20-year old has staunchly defended her dad against these heinous sexual assault accusations — but she was also spotted smoking weed in a video a few days ago that left many followers in a state of anxiety.
Jackson spent more of her teenage years battling substance abuse and had talked about attempting suicide many years ago.
“Y’all take my life more seriously than Ido. Calm yo tittaaaaysss [sic],” Paris wrote in response this to an article about the abuse allegedly suffered by Robson and Safechuck.
She followed this remark up with an explanatory statement that many fans found distressingly casual, considering the situation and the accusations against her world famous father.
“I didn’t mean to offend by expressing that titties should be calm, I know injustices are frustrating and it’s easy to get worked up,” she wrote on Instagram, adding:
“But reacting with a calm mind usually is more logical than acting out of rage and also … it feels better to mellow out. Smoke some weed n think about the bigger picture. Chillax my dudes.”
The fallout from Leaving Neverland has been abrupt and severe.
Michael’s music and television appearances have been getting muted since HBO aired the project; The Simpsons, for example, recently announced it would never again air an episode that centered on The King of Pop.
Paris also tried to kill herself back in 2013 as well, and has been candid about her struggles with depression in the past.
Just two months ago, Jackson checked into rehab for what she deemed to be emotional health issues.
“After a busy year of work engagements that took her all over the globe, Paris decided that she needed to take some time off to reboot, realign and prioritize her physical and emotional health,” a source close to Paris told People magazine at the time, concluding:
“She checked herself into a treatment facility to aid in her wellness plan and is looking forward to coming out of this revitalized and ready to tackle the exciting new projects that await her.”
Regardless of how you feel about Michael Jacksom, it’s impossible not to feel for his children throughout all of this.
We send our prayers to Paris Jackson.
UPDATE: TMZ reports that Paris is out of the hospital.
But she has responded to the TMZ story on Twitter, writing, “f—k you you f—king liars.”
She also posted a photo of herself on her Instagram Stories and wrote that she was “chillen like Bob Dylan.”
