Sad news out of Hollywood. Michael Jackson’s 15-year-old daughter Paris is recovering in hospital after a suicide attempt.
LA County Fire confirmed that they received a 911 call in the early hours of Wednesday morning for an overdose, and rushed Paris to hospital.
Paris’ mother Debbie Rowe told Entertainment Tonight that Paris was taken to hospital with cuts on her wrist, and that she had “a lot going on [lately].”
Early Wednesday morning, Paris tweeted a line from The Beatles’ song Yesterday. “Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away now it looks as though they’re here to stay,” she wrote.
An attorney for Katherine Jackson, Paris’ legal co-guardian, released a statement saying: “Paris is physically fine and getting appropriate medical attention.’
“Being a sensitive 15 year old is difficult no matter who you are.”
Citing the upcoming fourth anniversary of Michael’s death on 25 June, the family’s statement continued: “It is especially difficult when you lose the person closest to you. Please respect her privacy and the family’s privacy.”
Rowe’s lawyer also issued a statement: “We appreciate everyone’s thoughts for Paris at this time and their respect for the family’s privacy.”
We wish Paris Jackson a speedy recovery.
