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."

First of all every child needs and deserves attention. By stating that she didn't really want to kill herself doesn't mean that she doesn't need help. It is difficult for adults to deal with the pain and loss of a loved one but even more so for a child. Suicide is not something anybody ever just does... "for attention". If you hear a person repeatedly make comments about wanting to die they are basically saying they want the pain to stop and they don't know how to make it stop. If she took the pills and then had second thoughts... then thankfully she called that hotline number. People who call that number are not playing games. But if she was cutting herself and swallowing those pills a part of her wanted to die. You don't have to be a celebrity to feel these feelings. My own son attempted suicide two years ago and I have never felt so helpless in my life. He too wrote a note, Thankfully his brother called at just the right time and caused him to break his thought pattern. Later I found out that he had "practiced" before. Eventually he was planning on carrying that out. It has taken a long time for him to heal but he has been able to get the help that he has needed. At this point in time he is doing so much better but depression and anxiety are issues that he is going to have to deal with for a life time. Rather than say she didn't really want to die... give this young girl the time and the space she needs to figure out how to live in a reall messed up world. It's not easy.

I see green eyes with black lines around them how do you see blue eyes? her eyes look like mine but no yellow coloring in them, hazel green type.

is she wearing color contacts, I read some comments about her eyes being blue but yet the photo on this page has her eyes looking like a form of hazel green eyes, without the yellow coloring in the green parts of the eyes, and black lines around the green which I am not sure is normal since her hazel eyes don't have a lining color around them , otherwise very nice green eyes not blue, unless the people looking at the eyes are color blind which could be possible it would explain why the comment about blue eyes posted below

Motrin can kill you. Non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs are extremely toxic to the kidneys. and the liver..
BTW, tylenol can also kill you if enough is taken

Yes it can kill you, you freaking idiots. And she's had a lot of stress on her the past year so shut the **** up! You don't know her! And she sure as hell doesn't start drama and want drama. You wouldn't know about her because all you do is dump dirt on her. She's an amazing person like her father. She called the suicide hotline for guidance to help her. So get your ****ing stories right.

OMFG! This is the first & last time I will be reading any more articles or watch any more videos from TMZ. You "so called" reporters/journalists are a bunch of ignorant morons & idiots & a lot of hideous tools. How stupid can you be to call this girl's desperate cry for help "drama". God, I really can't believe the trash & uneducated insensitive loud mouths attention-grabbing w*(&)& you all are & all talking out of your a&(*# just to get attention onto your site all at the expense of a 15 yr old girls desperate cry for help. Morons, please get educated before shouting anything else out of your pie h*(&!

She's not into the drama -_______- You don't understand her--or other teens outthere cause you never cared about OUR sensitive feelings. We are realizing some things about the real world, which is far from what we knew when we're real little.

Everyone that had a hand in these kids existence need to be prison. MJ was CRAZY and the family stood by and watched him pay white folks to have kids FOR him. I blame all involved...including Debbie Rowe. She got paid BIG TIME. MJ was a self loathing black man that tried to change who he was. It was a sad and sickening thing to watch now these kids have to suffer. I hope Paris gets the help and encouragement she needs to pull through this mess.

YOU PEOPLE ARE DISGUSTING POSTING CRAP LIKE THIS... DON'T YOU GET THAT THIS IS A CHILD YOUR WRITING ABOUT? WHO CARES WHAT SHE WANTED, SHE'S OBVIOUSLY IN ENOUGH PAIN TO ACT OUT IN THIS WAY. MAKING FUN OF HER OR CALLING HER A DRAMA QUEEN ISNT GOING TO HELP HER OR ANYONE WHO NEEDS HELP.

SEROUSLY DISGUSTING, THERE NEEDS TO BE LEGISLATION PASSED TO STOP AHOLES LIKE YOU PEOPLE.
