Paris Jackson ‘doing fine’ after reported suicide attempt


THE TEENAGE daughter of the late Michael Jackson is “physically fine and is getting appropriate medical attention” after a reported suicide attempt.

Paris Jackson, 15, was hospitalised yesterday (June 5) after emergency services were called to her home in Calabasas, reports KABC.

Debbie Rowe, Paris's mother, reportedly confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that she had attempted suicide, telling the magazine that she had "a lot going on".

In a statement, she said: “We appreciate everyone’s thoughts for Paris at this time and their respect for the family’s privacy.”

Perry Sanders, the Jackson family lawyer, did not specify the nature of the emergency in a written statement.

“Being a sensitive 15-year-old is difficult no matter who you are,” the statement said. “It is especially difficult when you lose the person closest to you [her father]. Paris is physically fine and is getting appropriate medical attention. Please respect her privacy and the family’s privacy.”

Michael Jackson’s brothers, Jackie, Marlon and Tito Jackson, echoed the sentiment.

“Thank you for the outpouring of concern and support for Paris. She is safe and doing fine,” they said in a statement. “We truly appreciate you respecting our family’s privacy at this time.”

Since the death of her father in 2009, Paris and her two brothers have been living much more public lives.

Late Tuesday night (June 4), just before the emergency, Jackson tweeted, “i wonder why tears are salty?” In a tweet an hour later she quoted the Beatles, writing, “yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away now it looks as though they’re here to stay”
