Paris Jackson

Cops Say She DIDN'T Want to Die

6/6/2013 9:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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."

If she didnt want to die or not this girl still needs help and all her family give a damn is about money not her and her brothers

she is a 15 yr old girl for godsake...who ever is the source for "she is into drama" and "she just did it for attention" knows nothing about mental health. She needs was reported that she had been suffering from depression, and that she was anxious about testifying in court..who wouldn't be. I wish her peace and that she gets the help she needs.

This saddens me TMZ puts this down to attention seeking? I dont think putting stupid comments like "she wanted the attention" and in the previous article that questioning why she took a drug that wouldnt kill her. Seriously she is 15 years old obviously looking for some way to feel better about her situation and maybe she felt that taking the drugs were the only way to relive her pain and take it away. Teenagers these days are not educated on which drugs to take when they want to kill themselves. I just think publicising this information does nothing for the situation. I feel extremely bad that the thought of suicide even became an option for her. Im sorry but this TMZ article is inconsiderate and rude if they want to flag the poor girl as inconsiderate.

Well im off, This site sucks. It reeks of desperation with horrible stories like this. I used to kind of like it but now you're just being *****. You write the most utter crap to intentionally hurt people and your site appears to be "written by pond s***, for pond s***" You only need to see some of the sick comments from people to see the viewership you are now attracting. This site has NO CLASS. See ya

I don't know if Taking a whole bottle of Motrin can kill you but a bottle of Tylenol can. An overdose of Tylenol seems harmless but it's one of the worst and most prolonged,painful deaths that most people don't even know. It can cause severe liver damage as well as a whole lot of ugly,nasty side effects before your death. I am certainly glad she didn't die. That death would be on the entire money grubbing family. They need to keep her and her brothers out of the families ploys to continue to live off of Michael's life and death. Those children have enough money to live comfortably for the of there lives. The family wants to try and get as much money as they can before the children are adults. Poor kids,Michael loved those children more than anything in the world and he certainly wouldn't allow anyone to put them through hell. These children never asked to have themselves drug through the mud but that's exactly what they have been getting since Michael passed away. He wanted them to have a normal childhood that he didn't get as a child and I think he raised three great children that stick up for themselves and defend his legacy. He was perfect in there eyes.

TMZ should really interview a shrink and not downplay the seriousness of this suicide attempt: obviously, a teen who wanted attention would just ask for time and attention. She is bright and sensitive and hardly incapable of asking, so wouldn't that mean there is a problem with the family dynamic? Seriously, this has to be taken as an attempt to get help for herself and the entire family. This sounds like she is being ignored and for a long time: footage of her phone being taken away, tweeting who has her grandmother and the grandmother not knowing she was trying to get in contact with her seems like a lot of interference when her father appointed his mother, not the rest of the family and that should be respected.

And another thing: who says she's not being bullied at their school is seeing no evil, hearing no evil and speaking no evil if they think a girl with a famous Dad who is absolutely gorgeous and smart and worth billions is NOT getting bullied. Heck, even the cops and TMZ have overstepped by reporting on the medical of a minor. Since when did the cops stop saying they cannot comment? They do it with all the minors and celebrity mental health incidents. I mean, they should treat a suicide attempt from a minor victim like they do a sexual assault victim and not print the innuendos and sources. You are hitting someone when they are defenseless, powerless and most vulnerable - this is a child you are bashing and not one on the Disney channel or selling albums. She is not fair game for celebrity fodder because she said a few kind words about her father at a funeral or has a twitter account. Back off already.

What the hell, you people commenting about the colour of her eyes. Mj's father and grandfather both have BLUE eyes (Not green) and look at her mother. ever seen the colour of her mothers eyes or Debbies mother and so on. you people are pathetic! its people like you who have probably made her do this. I believe Mj is innocent and obviously you don't but why take it out on his child/children. EEFIN heartless disgrace to humanity you people are.
