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."

Maybe she wanted to die and then changed her mind after she did it? And who cares if it was a viable attempt or a cry for attention? Does it really matter? Either way she's really unhappy and needs support. Not people making a big deal as to whether she followed the right suicide protocol

With all her money grabbing family no wonder she would want some attention for herself. She needs to get away from the Jacksons and all theirdrama.

What I Think    

And so Paris "Crazy Eyes" Jackson has added a new sub plot to the never ending soap opera that is the Jackson family.

TMZ you are disgusting and I am never coming to this site again. I am not even joking. A 15 year old tried to kill herself. Surely whatever the reason is, it means she has a serious enough problem for you not to trivialize it this way. Unless you lost your dad at 15, never knew your real parents and your dad got constantly accused of being a pedophile, you do not have the right to report how she feels without her saying so. **** you.

TMZ, go **** yourself. She's a 15 year old girl. You don't know her motives. You're all ****ing idiots.

Another idiotic article by TMZ written by a bunch of uncivilized monkeys.

You are a soulless bunch. You'd all sell your first born to the church of satan for page hits.

This child is 15 years old and it's articles like these that drive them further to the edge. I've seen your articles on Prince Jackson where you creepily stalk and make fun of him when he is only doing regular teenage stuff.

Whether Paris is into the drama or not is irrelevant. She almost killed herself. Mental problems are not to be joked about. I'd like to see all of you suffer from major depression and hang yourselves so we can laugh about it.

A bunch of old nobody bullies picking on a minor. TMZ is becoming worse than Perez Hilton. Disgusting.

I have a serious problem with your "source". They OBVIOUSLY know nothing about somebody suffering from depression. When you cut yourself, YES it's a cry for attention, but not the kind of attention they are referring to. It's to let people know you are severely hurting inside, that you need help, and while this may have not been a serious suicide attempt, trust me she is thinking about it. she is just too scared, for the moment, to do it. It does not make this incident any less serious. And the call to the suicide hotline proves that she is considering it. She doesn't want to die, but that doesn't mean she won't do it. It's hard to explain. I've been through all this. Please, do not make lite of this. It will only make things worse. TMZ, I'm seriously disappointed that you would repeat what this person said, they have no clue at all

Tmz you suck. The girl is obviously in pain. You make it seem like she is a spoiled brat liking for attention rather than a going woman who raised in a very strange environment then lis

Long time viewer, first time comment. I am so disturbed by the irresponsible reporting done by tmz on this very sensitive subject. First she is a child, have you no respect? Second, how foolish you look trying to report as news the "motives" You cannot possibly get inside her mind, heart or soul. The poor girl is in pain. You make it seem like she is just throwing a fit...She lost her father...she was raised in a stage show. She is far from a normal childhood. I hate you TMZ. I am so done. I have never been more disgusted as a human being. Get a heart or be cursed to the same happening to your own children. Karma...it's coming to you.

What a disgusting, vile report. She is a child and obviously in pain. Shame on the LAPD for commenting either way and on TMZ for publishing this. What are you trying to do? Make sure she has a "real" go at it next time? Absolutely repulsed

Of course she wanted attention. That's the primary reason for most attempted suicides in the case of young people. Why are you making a story out of it, like it's something to laugh at?

This article is disgusting. You should be ashamed of yourselves for publishing these "sources" who are clearly trying to downplay a 15 yr old taking a meat cleaver to her arm, and ingesting motrin. And by the way, Motrin thins the blood, so it could clearly be effected. Shame on you.

I just have a feeling one or more of Michael's brothers are getting too touchy feely with her. Going to a concert and some of the other excuses are just that excuses - my instinct tells me there is a lot more going on and its not good.
