Paris Jackson, the teenage daughter of the world’s best known pop singer, the late Michael Jackson, has attempted to take her own life.
The fifteen-year-old was taken to hospital in Los Angeles yesterday and is expected to make a full recovery.
A lawyer for Paris’ legal guardian, her grandmother (and Michael’s mother) Katherine Jackson, issued a statement on Katherine Jackson’s behalf today that said:
“Paris is physically fine and is getting appropriate medical attention. Being a sensitive 15-year-old is difficult no matter who you are. It is especially difficult when you lose the person closest to you.”
Michael Jackson died in 2009 from a lethal overdose of propofol. The circumstances surrounding his death have been subject to extensive legal proceedings because of alleged wrongdoing on the part of Michael Jackson’s personal physician.
Various reports about what happened to Paris are already circulating, including the information that Paris’ personal Twitter account included some worrying content on Tuesday night:
The Herald Sun also reports that:
A 20-minute video of the teen applying makeup was posted to YouTube last week. Paris says on Twitter she doesn’t know how the video, in which she repeatedly asserts, “I am so weird,” ended up on the site.
“I hope you guys liked it tho and didn’t think i’m too crazy,” she wrote. “i get weird when i’m not around people lol.”
Us Weekly reported that Paris was rushed to hospital in the early hours of the 5th June. In a statement, a spokeperson for the LA County Sheriff Department said: “When we arrived, the paramedics were giving medical treatment to the patient. Treatment was offered and given. The patient was then transported to a local hospital.”
