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."

This is a reprehensible story. How could you reveal this information abt a 15yo girl? How the hell is it anybody's dam business, much less yours??? How would you like it if a national publication revealed that your daughter had tried to kill herself??? Hope you rot in hell.

Could these Jackson zombies on here pontificating on the seriousness of suicide be some of the same zombies that danced with joy when Jordan Chandler's father committed suicide? Methinks so...

Prince Michael Jackson Visits Sister Paris In Hospital After Suicide Attempt

Posted on Jun 6, 2013 @ 16:33PM | By Jen Heger


Prince Michael Jackson has visited his estranged sister Paris at the Los Angeles area hospital where the teenager is recuperating after her attempted suicide, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.

The eldest child of pop icon Michael Jackson spent time with Paris, 15, on Thursday, a Jackson family source revealed.

The siblings, who had once been “thick as thieves, had a major falling out when Paris began to spend time with their biological mother, Debbie Rowe. Prince disagreed with Paris’ decision to do so and wanted nothing to do with Debbie, which Paris couldn’t understand,” an insider told Radar.

“Paris kept pushing Prince and they drifted apart. As Paris began to spend more time with Debbie, Prince was hanging out with his girlfriend.

“However, all of that changed after Paris’ suicide attempt. Prince stepped up, as he always does and told Paris how much he loves her in a phone call and vowed to help her in the aftermath of the suicide attempt. He visited her on Thursday.”

Paris, said to “emotionally distraught” at the thought of having to testify in her father’s wrongful death suit, slashed her wrist early Wednesday morning and was rushed to the hospital.

Jackson family sources previously told Radar the 15-year-old, who has been battling depression, felt the strained relationship with Prince had weighed on her.

“Paris feels like her old life is slipping away,” the source said.

However, no matter “what Michael Jackson’s children face, they will always stick together. It is how their father raised them, and it’s what he would have wanted. Nothing or no one can break that bond, no matter who may try to do so,” the family source added.

Disgusting article TMZ. Bottom line - this is a 15 year old child. She will NEVER get a break from the legacy of her father nor his sycophantic family. I can't believe anyone would write such a cold thoughtless article about this poor kid. Of course she wants attention - like every other 15 year old girl. Try being her with all the other **** she has to deal with. Unbelievable.

Paris Jackson Remains Hospitalized, Smiling Again, Sees Family

Paris Jackson


Still hospitalized after a suicide attempt, Paris Jackson is receiving family visitors while her guardians mull over what to do next.

"Paris is doing well, smiling again and can't wait to see her friends," a family source tells PEOPLE.

The 15-year-old daughter of the late Michael Jackson was sent to an L.A. area hospital early Tuesday after cutting her wrists with a kitchen knife and taking as many as 20 ibuprofen pills, PEOPLE confirms.

Among those visiting her are her grandmother/co-guardian Katherine Jackson, mother Debbie Rowe, brother Prince Michael Jackson, aunt LaToya Jackson and her former nanny Grace Rwaramba.

"It's not yet been decided what to do when Paris is released," says the source, adding the matter is being discussed by Katherine Jackson and the other co-guardian, cousin T.J. Jackson.

With how controversial her father was the fact she was blocked from going to a Marilyn Manson concert was b.s. Manson may be a lot of thing but accused pedophile isn't one of them. Even though he's rough around the edges Manson is a very nice person. I took my kids to see his show and he sent my disabled daughter a guitar pic and waved at her. He didn't have to do that. Enough with the judging of people on how they look.

Seriously, TMZ... you need to change this article RIGHT NOW. How DARE YOU post a quote saying

"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."

Someone with suicidal thoughts will see this and could think "Yeah, If I want to die, I should just DO IT! I don't need to call a hotline! and if I do, I'll just be called a drama queen like Paris Jackson".

"Into the drama".

This is just disgusting. Shame on you!!

She's daddy's girl, remember?
Her brother and mother are nowhere near her.

Her granny's a fantasy loving idiot. Wasn't she supposed to be a warm attentive guardian assigned by her genius father?

Her arm's dripping blood and she's drugged up like her father for one night.
She sure wished her father had immediate help from Katherine, the bodyguard, chef, nanny & make-up artist.
Granny claims she never intended to make Paris testify in court. Really, stupid old woman?
Your granddaughter has to lie in court so she slashed her wrist & talked to a stranger who could speak like a real family member.

MJ couldn't make $1 billion when he died but
Katherine demands $40 billion to make herself a heroine for her fans.

What the **** is wrong with you, TMZ? It's like you're challenging her, saying her attempt wasn't good enough? Maybe she'll succeed next time, is that what you want? This post is unbelievable.
