Paris Jackson

Cops Say She DIDN'T Want to Die

EXCLUSIVE

0605_paris_jackson_article_2
Cops officially classified the Paris Jackson incident as a "suicide attempt," but they do NOT believe her intent was to kill herself.

Law enforcement sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... based on the information the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. has gathered ... "She wanted attention."  One source involved in the case tells us ... her call to a suicide hotline is compelling evidence "she wanted to be saved."  The source added, "It makes no sense if you really want to die to call a hotline, where the person on the other end will get an ambulance over to your house."

TMZ broke the story ... Paris used a meat cleaver to cut her arm and took a bunch of Motrin, and our sources say as a result they must classify it as a "suicide attempt."  But, as one source put it, "Who takes Motrin to kill themselves?  She called the suicide hotline because she wanted the attention and wanted to make sure EMTs got there in time."

We're also told Paris was conscious when EMTs arrived and did not argue or put up a struggle when she was placed on a stretcher.

One source connected with the case tells us, "She's into the drama."

Wow....reading the article and they way they say this...pisses me off. She's "into the drama" and "who would take Motrin if they REALLY wanted to die?" "She just wanted the attention." She is FIFTEEN years old. Stop downplaying this **** and HELP THE POOR GIRL!!!! She has scars all over her arms from cutting!!!! It's NOT F'ING DRAMA. It is EMOTIONAL PAIN! It is a child in need of help. Are you f'ing kidding me!?!?! How much more does she need to do!?!?! Not all children are able to come right out and tell someone they need help. Others ask for it in different ways. To say she's "into the drama" is making light of and downplaying what is OBVIOUSLY an underlying and SERIOUSLY issue. STOP making it sound like this is a teenager just looking for attention and DO SOMETHING before it IS too late!

Wtf tmz ! Come on. Most 15 year olds are not stable and most people dont live with constant cameras and people following their every move. Can you imagine being in her shoes. Leave this precious child alone. May God bless, guide and protect her always.

I think she wants to go live with her mom and the Jackson family doesn't want her to. I think it would be best if she did move with her mom. Being 15 is not easy. Being a child of MJ cant be easy as well. I cant even imagine what she is going through right now. I hope she gets the help she needs. Regardless if she spoiled she is still human and its obvious she is going through something troubling. Get well soon Paris!

This is shameful in every respect. She is a child, a minor , who did not ask to be born into this. A respectful reporting of this incident would have been "Paris Jackson has been taken to the hospital due to a suspected overdose. She is receiving the appropriate care and the family asks for privacy at this time." Done, let her heal.

This is the dumbest thing I've read. So now everyone who calls the suicide hotline should automatically not be classified as suicidal because they're reaching out for help and the operators should not be instructed to call 911 for help or try to prevent them from carrying out their suicide because they should be trained to know the person really just wants attention unless they're already successfully dead. Dumb dumb dumb.janet and the bros prob said this because they're so jealous of her and any attention she gets. After all mj should have left everything to them not his children right? Wrong.

In the quest for notoriety, some people "leak" sex tapes, or have elaborate fake weddings, or get pregnant out of wedlock, others may do self harm.What else can talentless people do to become infamous and noticed by the public? People desperate for ATTENTION of any kind.

Paris has been spending time with Debbie Rowe. Maybe Debbie finally told the girl who her real father was, and maybe even her real mother. Debbie always told the press the children were NOT hers. She may have been just a "womb for hire" and carried a child concocted by an Egg Seller and a Sperm Seller. Maybe she told Paris, and it only takes one look in the mirror to prove that MJ did not father those white kids.

Concerned Mom    

How can you post this? Do you want her to prove that she didn't want attention and go all the way next time? She is a young girl who is having major issues. Can you not give her some privacy. I am disgusted by the staff at TMZ.
