I heard that Katherine Jackson is planning to ship Jermaine's kids off to South America. Wonder how the locals will react to that.

Sad picture. Isn't this what every human wants? You try and end your life and your dying hulk is photographed for all to comment on. The paradox is this woman is probably worth more as a human than 98% of what is posting on TMZ.

I've come to realize what is posting here along with me. It's grim.

She should be charged with malicious destruction of private property.

I'm bipolar - even with antidepressants I've often wanted to die. This story is exactly why I'm too chicken to kill myself. I can always think of some way I could end up surviving, wether by fluke or by intervention from the well-meaning, and end up worse off.

I'm sorry but to the people bitching about people's rude comments on here i have one thing to ask...

what about the person to only sold this story to the tabloids???

Why is it CNN (one of the biggest news sites) did not report this, but had some lame-ass story about one moron celeb "outing" another

what does that say about the supposed "people in shock" when this happened.

I found it odd that when i did a search for this story, i ONLY found it on celeb/tabloid news sites, and the exact same story everywhere... why did no "respected" news outlet report something as huge and tragic as this?

so come on, provide an answer

Squeaky Shoes, I agree with you, but, unfortunately, CNN is not interested in other countries news. I'm just glad she survived, and hope she can be taken care off

have you even read cnn's website? they have "other contries" news on there all the time!

their most recent ones are of the moscow bombing, afgani children in some far corner being fed opium to make them sleep so their parents can work, egypt protests, pakistani bombing, should i go on? so it's not their problem

i had to really *dig* through internet search engines to even find the story... and it appears in the strangest and random locations, like gamespot forums? celebrity "news" sites, and blogs of people who like to bitch about how cruel the world is

I'm just trying to point out that this "news" not actually being reported except in places it needn't be, is just bizarre

we get pointless news from all around the world like these idiot politicians who are screwing up every country and stepping down, but something like this fails to show up...

someone "sold" this to the highest bidder... not to actual news outlets
