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."

Who cares? Who really gives a rats rear end? Why is this a major story? So what? She's the do nothing daughter of a pedophile. What has she done? What are her accomplishments in life? Meanwhile, our verterans suffer high suicide rates without any media notice. It doesn't matter what side of the political coin you're on, our vets deserve media attention, not some whacked out "feel sorry for me" spoiled kid who lives in comfort and doesn't have a care in the world..

I think these kids went through enough scandal when Michael was alive to expect them to not have a reaction to what is still going.

I have loved and been a fan of Michael for 50 yrs. I think the parents and siblings of Michael should of stepped up years ago and tried to get him the medical help that was necessary. Why is it okay to pass the responsibility of the family to a business corporation all in the favor of the almighty dollar !

I think that Michael would be horrified at the actions of the Jackson family and saddened to hear that his children are suffering so badly and in the spotlight.

My loving thoughts are with Paris and her brothers>

As a source of news, we have the responsibility to take serious situations seriously, and that includes never downplaying something as scary as a suicide attempt as just a call for attention. Some sources, however, have no problem making it seem this way.

Their proof? An anonymous source saying that cops don't think Paris Jackson wanted to die, who goes on to call her a teen who's just 'into drama.' ARE YOU KIDDING US?

Here's what they said:
"She wanted attention. 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."

So because she called a suicide hotline — just like people with real suicidal thoughts are urged to do so their lives can be saved — that means she only wanted attention? Does anyone else see how awful that sounds?

What message is this sending to people who can be helped by those hotlines??

Another source continued:

"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."

Everyone is way off base here. We should be looking at the fact that because she called the hotline, she was saved… and that's a GOOD DAMN THING! That's not an excuse to brush off the seriousness of her issues!

Depression is not something to push aside, and when someone goes so far as to cut themselves with a meat clever and take a load of pills, you bet your asses we're going to take it seriously and get them the help they need — not just sit here and chalk it up to being a dramatic teenager.

Paris is a smart young girl, and she's been dealt a hard childhood. Let's lift her up instead of being part of the problem!

Remember Perezcious readers, if you're ever feeling emotional distress, you can always hit up the National Suicide Hotline at 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-784-2433. Nobody in their right mind is going to think you're doing it just for attention!

This is an absolutely disgusting article. TMZ should be ashamed. To be discussing the sensitive situation of a 15 year old CHILD is just too much. TMZ has gone to a new low. Be proud of the fact that you just capitalized on a troubled youth. Well done.

That's apparent. Kurt Cobain wanted to die. Mindy McCready wanted to die. This chick...she's playing for attention. If you want to die, it can be done.

TMZ is such s***. YOU ARE ONE OF THE MANY REASONS FAMOUS PEOPLE TRY TO KILL THEMSELVES.

You people should do the world a favor and go play on a ****ing freeway.

Are you idiots serious? TMZ should kill themselves and NOT call the suicide hotline. ****ing idiots. Even if someone is doing something drastic for attention, doesn't mean there isn't a reason for it. I'm sure she did this so she could be in your sad excuse for a publication as the girl who tried to kill herself. That is clearly just a selfish ploy for media coverage. You guys are so smart.

Bless her and her siblings. Teen depression is horrible. I hope she gets the real help she needs and not a "Conman" Murray type of doctor. We're sending good thoughts.

Don't shoot the messengers. TMZ just reports. Sure there are pundits and they have asses. But it is the viewers responsibility to think for ourselves after getting the facts as we see them. I get wanked when TMZ gets flaky. I just allow them to be wrong and try to inform.

If I was Mj's people, I'd make a case that he was not in his right mind, which most peple already know, when he adopted those children and married Debbi Rowe

People try to kill themselves for many reasons. Is not one of them. It is usually a inner decision caused by a mental problem. I'm almost positive TMZ wasn't ever in her- Kurt's or Money's roundhouses of problems. They all have really bad past experiences with out the capacity to deal.
