Paris Jackson Suicide Attempt

It’s reported that Michael Jackson’s daughter, Paris Jackson, is in the hospital following a suicide attempt early this morning. According to the reports, Paris allegedly slashed her wrist due to emotional turmoil related to having to testify in the ongoing wrongful death lawsuit for her father in which she is a plaintiff. Jackson, 15, was rushed to an LA hospital and placed under a 5150 psychiatric hold for 72 hours (the same evaluation placed on Britney Spears in 2008). The hold allows a qualified peace officer or clinician to involuntarily confine someone because it’s deemed they have a mental disorder making them dangerous to themselves and/or others. Paris was due to testify in the trial but reports say she was emotionally distraught about it, wants nothing to do with the trial and was unwilling to do so. Paris’ grandmother and guardian Katherine said “Being a sensitive 15-year-old is difficult no matter shoe you are. It is especially difficult when you lose the person closest to you.” She added, “Paris is physically fine and is getting appropriate medical attention. Please respect her privacy and the family’s privacy.”
