Paris Jackson, daughter of Michael, was rushed to the hospital this morning amid rumors of an attempted suicide. Though anyone who attempts suicide can likely attest it’s for a number of reasons, TMZ suggest it may have stemmed from frustration over a Marilyn Manson concert. Here is TMZ’s timeline:
Paris Jackson was rushed to the hospital early Wednesday morning, and sources tell us it was a suicide attempt.
Paris was taken out of her Calabasas family house [note: this is not her grandmother’s house, as Katherine Jackson lives in Encino] on a stretcher at around 2 AM and taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital.
The 911 call came in at 1:27 AM. We’re told the caller reported a possible overdose, although a source connected to the emergency response said there were multiple cuts on one of her wrists.
— 9:51 AM PST: A source closely connected to Paris tells TMZ … she has “tried this [a possible suicide attempt] in the past” but “this was far more serious. It was not a cry for help.”
— 10:14 AM PST: Debbie Rowe‘s lawyer, Eric George, tells TMZ: “We appreciate everyone’s thoughts for Paris at this time and their respect for the family’s privacy.”
10:14 AM PST: A source connected to the family tells TMZ … Paris “threw a fit” last night after she was told she couldn’t go to a Marilyn Manson concert. We’re told she ran into her room screaming and slammed the door.
— 11:33 AM PT — Katherine Jackson’s attorney tells TMZ … “Paris is physically fine and is getting appropriate medical attention.” The lawyer, Perry Sanders, adds, “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.”
— 12:44 PM PT — Jackson brothers Jackie, Marlon and Tito just sent this statement to TMZ: “Thank you for the outpouring of concern and support for Paris. She is safe and doing fine. We truly appreciate you respecting our family privacy at this time.”
TMZ is very quick to point out that Paris was posting “cryptic tweets”. Yesterday Miss Jackson tweeted the Beatles lyrics,
yesterday , all my troubles seemed so far away now it looks as though they’re here to stay
Paris often tweets lyrics of her favorite artists, so who knows if this means anything at all. At this time it sounds as though the family isn’t denying the suicide rumors. I sincerely hope she’s doing well.
Also, who the f-ck is leaking all of this personal info? I’m talking about details like, “Paris threw a fit […] ran into her room screaming and slammed the door.” That had to be from somebody in the house at the time, which means it was probably someone close the family, which means that’s shady as hell to release that to the press. Unless of course it’s all made up. In which case, still not cool.
