Paris Jackson, daughter of the late pop superstar Michael Jackson made headlines this Wednesday, after being rushed to a hospital for an attempted suicide.
15-year-old Paris Jackson was just 11 when her father Michael Jackson died in 2009.
This suicide attempt may reflect on the far from normal life she is living. Paris is now surrounded by people that, up until a few years ago, she barely even knew.
Before that, she spent her public life wearing a mask and witnessing the problems that her father had. Living through the death of father.
Prince and Paris walked toward their father, who was lying still on a bed with his eyes and mouth open on that fateful day, screaming “Daddy!” before Dr. Conrad Murray had them ushered away.
And recently Paris Jackson’s biological mom Debbie Rowe was given visitation rights. Plus all the Jackson family squabbles and jockeying for money and power.
It was reported that Paris Jackson cut her wrists with a meat cleaver and took a large number of Motrin pills.
It was claimed that Paris Jackson attempted suicide because she was upset that she was being prohibited from going to rock musician Marilyn Manson’s Los Angeles concert on Thursday night.
“That might have been the straw that broke the camel’s back, but there have been problems long before this,” explained a news source.
“The Jackson kids never really got the professional help they needed after Michael died, and they need it. This incident is going to go one of two ways – it will either be a wake-up call to Katherine [their grandmother and legal guardian] or it is only going to get worse.”
However, multiple Jackson sources have also cautioned that there is likely more to come, with Rowe possibly filing a court motion to ascertain custody of the Jackson children. Since her dad’s death, Paris Jackson has spent much more time with her mom, and the bond has grown particularly strong in recent months.
An inside source reported that Paris Jackson is considered the one in the household who “calls all the shots” and provides a lot of maternal care for the youngest in the family, 11-year-old Blanket.
She’s also used to getting her way and doing things as she sees fit, which is part of the reason why her famous aunt Janet Jackson attempted to take her cellphone during a highly-publicized altercation outside the Jackson family compound last year.
One thing Michael Jackson did as devoted parent was ensure that his three children – Prince, Paris and Blanket – were far removed from family drama and greed. But according to our insider, that’s no longer the case.
The $40 million AEG lawsuit and new molestation claims from Wade isn't helping “What those kids are hearing about their dad and drug use and everything else regarding that trial is really ugly.”
In addition to the traumatic life changes Paris has weathered over the last four years, last July she and her siblings also dealt with Katherine’s “missing person episode” which spawned a bitter family feud and custody battle.
Paris also regularly tweets out her somber feelings with song lyrics.
“You say I need therapy, well, my darling, so do you. Don't need for you to tell me what is wrong in all I say or do,” she wrote Tuesday, referencing a Zee Avi song, before later tweeting out the Beatles. “Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away now it looks as though they're here to stay.”
