Paris Jackson

Transferred to the Same

Hospital Where MJ Died

6/9/2013 2:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

060813_paris_jackson_launchParis Jackson was transfered to UCLA Medical Center this evening, effectively ending her 72-hour psychiatric hold, and TMZ has the exclusive video of her being wheeled into the hospital. 

As TMZ first reported, Jackson was rushed to the hospital early Wednesday morning after Jackson allegedly cut her forearm with a meat cleaver. Jackson was taken to a local hospital and placed under  a 5150 psychiatric hold for 72 hours.

Our photog spotted Jackson and a slew of bodyguards outside UCLA Medical Center as Jackson was being wheeled in this afternoon. Our photog tried to get an update on Paris' condition from one of the bodyguards. He was mum, but his mood suggested Jackson was doing better.

The Jackson family is no stranger to UCLA Medical Center -- Michael was taken there when he went into cardiac arrest on June 25, 2009. That's where he would later pass away.

Janet Jackson had a meltdown recently while traveling from London to LA. Apparently Ms. Jackson is a germaphobe who had issues with her first class seat on a British Airways flight. The meltdown took place in front of onlookers including Victoria Beckham.
Page Six reports:
Janet Jackson is an obsessive clean freak. She spent a frantic 40 minutes spraying down the window, her chair, tray table, phone and even the wall on a first-class British Airways flight from London to LA last Friday, in front of onlookers including Victoria Beckham. “Janet had anti-bacterial spray, and was pulling one tissue out of a bag after another,” says a spy. “This wasn’t a normal rubdown; this was 40 minutes of meticulously wiping everything.” Jackson had been on an earlier flight from Cannes that was diverted from Heathrow to Gatwick, where passengers sat on the runway for 3 1/2 hours before heading back to Heathrow. Jackson and others were then squeezed onto a bus to go through customs.
As rich as Janet and her husband Wissam Al Mana is, why don’t they invest in a private jet?


Because they were newly rich people who are of low class. Janet flying with toilet tissue and germ killer spray, Paris attempt suicide with a made in China kitchen knife. Worst of all MJ was burried in a wall. after his 14K gold casket was returned to the wholeseller/ or melt for gold!!!

Diana Ross — Paris Jackson’s Godmother, Possible Guardian — Comforts Family After Teen’s Suicide Bid

Posted on Jun 10, 2013 @ 3:05AM | By Jen Heger

Motown legend Diana Ross has comforted Katherine Jackson in the wake of Paris Jackson’s suicide attempt and hatched plans to visit the troubled teen, has exclusively learned.

“Diana is extremely concerned about Paris,” a source close to the situation revealed.

“She was stunned that Paris attempted suicide and has vowed to make sure she gets the help she needs.”

King of Pop Michael Jackson stipulated in his 2002 will that Ross get custody of his children — Prince Michael, 16, Paris, 15, and 11-year-old Blanket — if his 83-yer-old mother were ever to become incapacitated.

“Diana absolutely isn’t going to make a move for custody of the children after Paris’ suicide attempt,” said the source.

“She only wants what is best for them. Diana has tremendous respect for Katherine and all that she has done for the children and told her, last week when they spoke, that if she needed anything, she stands ready to help in anyway.”

Diana is also “planning on visiting Paris after she is released from hospital — and it will be out of the glare of the media,” the insider revealed.

As Radar previously reported, the 69-year-old The Supremes diva spent time with her godchildren last summer in the midst of the Jackson’s bitter family feud, when late pop star’s siblings cut off contact between the kids and Katherine.

“Diana told them they could call her anytime they needed anything,” an insider said.

Interesting fact: Ross — who at age 25 met a 10-year-old Jackson in 1968 — must be notified if there are any issues related to the children, because of the “Thriller” singer’s will.

“If any of my children are minors at the time of my death, I nominate my mother, Katherine Jackson as guardian of the persons and estate of such minor children,” Jackson, who died on June 25, 2009, after suffering a cardiac arrest at his home, stated in his will.

“If Katherine Jackson fails to survive me, or is unable or unwilling to act as guardian, I nominate Diana Ross as guardian of the persons and estates of such minor children.”

AEG boss: 'Michael Jackson was a drunk mess at tour announcement'

June 10, 2013, 6:39 AM EST
The president of AEG Live screamed at Michael Jackson and slapped him "on the butt" when he discovered the superstar was "drunk and despondent" shortly before he was due to announce his comeback shows. Randy Phillips, head of the concert promotion company, has been testifying in court in Los Angeles as part of the ongoing wrongful death lawsuit filed against the firm by the King of Pop's mother, Katherine Jackson. Last week (ends09Jun13), Phillips took the stand to talk about the press conference at London's O2 Arena in March, 2009 when Jackson announced he would be staging a massive 50-gig residency at the venue. The event was held just months before Jackson's death from an accidental drug overdose in June, 2009, and Phillips has revealed he was furious when he discovered the Thriller star was intoxicated before he was due to hit the stage to address the press. In emails unveiled in court, Phillips told his boss he went to see Jackson in his hotel suite and had to help manager Tohme Tohme get the drunk star dressed and ready for the event, writing, "MJ (Jackson) is locked in his room drunk and despondent. Tohme and I are trying to sober him up and get him to the press conference with his hair/makeup artist... I screamed at him so loud the walls were shaking. Tohme and I have dressed him, and they are finishing his hair, and then we are rushing to the O2. This is the scariest thing I have ever seen. He's an emotionally paralysed mess, filled with self-loathing and doubt now that it is show time. He is scared to death. Right now I just want to get through this press conference." In the emails, Phillips also claimed he slapped Jackson and forced him into a cold shower to sober him up, although the businessman insisted in court that his words were an exaggeration, saying, "(It was a) very tense situation (and) frankly, I created the tension in that room. Because I was so nerve-racked, OK, the time (was) slipping away, and his career slipping away... I slapped him on the butt." Jackson's mother brought the lawsuit claiming AEG bosses should take responsibility for hiring Dr. Conrad Murray, the medic who administered the fatal drug dose which killed the star and who is now serving a prison sentence for involuntary manslaughter. AEG chiefs are fighting the claims and Phillips is expected to resume his testimony on Monday (10Jun13).

Paris Jackson's tears on Neverland visit


Posted Monday, June 10, 2013, 6:11am (PDT)

Michael Jackson's daughter Paris wept when she revisited her father's former Neverland home in Santa Barbara, California after his death because the ranch's famous Ferris wheel had been removed.

Jackson moved out of the estate in 2005 after cops raided it following his arrest on alleged child molestation charges in 2003.

Paris Jackson decided to revisit her former home two years ago, and she admits she was dismayed to see how it had changed.

She tells Event magazine, "I cried and cried. It's beautiful there. It still has good energy."

The 15-year-old also revealed to the publication she wants part of her father's financial legacy to be used to restore the estate for the benefit of less privileged children, and plans to start the project when she is an adult.

The musical legend died in 2009 after suffering a cardiac arrest brought on by an overdose of anesthetic propofol. Medic Conrad Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter for causing Jackson's death.

The strange unravelling of Paris Jackson

Paris Jackson

"BEING a sensitive 15-year-old is difficult no matter who you are," a family lawyer said. "It sounds more like a boy thing," an unnamed acquaintance suggested to a reporter from a New York tabloid newspaper. And according to her mother, she had "a lot going on". These were the various reactions to the news that Paris Jackson had attempted to take her own life.

Everyone agreed that it was not easy to be adolescent. She had exams to take, there was apparently some bullying at school and a disagreement at home about not being allowed to attend a Marilyn Manson concert. “That conversation escalated quickly,” she wrote on Twitter, and then: “I wonder why tears are salty.”

But above and beyond the dramas and trials of a 15-year-old girl loomed a far larger drama: a colossal legal contretemps over who was to blame for the death of her father, Michael Jackson. A lawsuit had been filed a year after his death on behalf of Paris Jackson, her brothers Prince Michael and “Blanket”, and their grandmother Katherine, alleging that the entertainment company AEG was culpable in “the tragic wrongful death of the internationally beloved artist”. Now it has ground its way to court. She and Prince had already given depositions, they expected to be called and cross-examined on the grisly details of their father's last days. Armies of lawyers clashed each day and the vast machinery of an American civil court dredged up both intimate insights and insults to their father's memory. “We're going to show some ugly stuff,” Marvin Putnam, a lawyer for AEG, warned in an opening statement in April.

. .
As this dirty business commenced in earnest, fresh allegations that her father was a child molester were being aired in the press and raised, reportedly, by fellow pupils at her school. Then there is Paris Jackson's extended family: the uncles and aunts who contest the terms of her father's will and have seemed prepared to do anything to re-arrange matters to their satisfaction. Nearly a year has passed since they escorted her grandmother and legal guardian Katherine from the children's home in Los Angeles to Arizona, ostensibly so that the matriarch could obtain medical treatment “away from phones and computers”. Paris reported her grandmother missing and Katherine Jackson's own lawyer contended that she was being “held against her will”: observers interpreted the bizarre manoeuvre as an attempt to gain guardianship of the children and wrest control of Michael Jackson's estate, which had become vastly more lucrative since his death.

So, as her mother, Debbie Rowe, said, Paris Jackson had “a lot going on”. When news that she had been rushed to hospital reached the Superior Court of the State of California last Wednesday, one member of the Jackson family legal team wept in the courtroom.

“This entire thing is incredibly tragic,” Putnam, the AEG defence attorney, told reporters outside the court.

The civil case turns on the relatively limited question of whether AEG were responsible for hiring Conrad Murray, the doctor who administered the dose of sedatives to Michael Jackson in June of 2009. Murray, who has been convicted of involuntary manslaughter, had signed a contract with AEG to serve as Jackson's physician as the pop star prepared for a comeback tour of 50 concerts. However, AEG, the tour promoter, had not counter-signed the contract and, though they had agreed to pay the doctor $150,000 a month, AEG say they were merely paying him an advance taken from Jackson's own expected earnings from the shows.

Called to give evidence, Randy Phillips, chief executive of AEG Live, agreed that he thought the lawsuit a “baseless shakedown” by the Jackson family. Where AEG lawyers argue that the singer was personally responsible for his own wellbeing, the Jackson side allege that the company put “its desire for massive profits from the tour over the health and safety of Michael Jackson”.

They have pointed to an email from Paul Gongaware, another AEG executive supervising the shows, exhorting colleagues to “remind (the doctor) that it is AEG, not MJ, who is paying his salary”. They have sought to show that AEG were aware of the singer's declining condition but strove to press him into performing nonetheless.

He was so thin you could see his heart beat through his skin, his long-time make-up artist Karen Faye told the jury. “Get him a bucket of chicken,” a manager had allegedly replied. Lawyers and executives for AEG referred to Jackson as “the freak” in emails shown to the court. He was no longer capable of holding a knife and fork, said one. He could no longer spin on his feet without falling “on his ass”, said another. He believed he was talking to God, and days before his death, while he sat surrounded by a phalanx of security guards with “a terrible case of the chills”, no one tried to help by offering him a cup of hot tea.

After the singer's death, his three children - long shielded by their father from public scrutiny - gradually emerged on to the public stage. They were interviewed by Oprah Winfrey. More recently, Prince Michael began appearing on the television show Entertainment Tonight as a “special correspondent”.

“You are 16 years old but you are so much older and wiser than your years,” the program's presenter Brooke Anderson said. Dressed in a suit but with his white shirt unbuttoned, he resembled a middle-aged stockbroker midway through a night on the tiles. Did he like the film Oz the Great and Powerful? Anderson asked.

“Yes I liked it a lot,” he replied. “I thought it was very cinematic.”

He said his ambition was to be a director, producer, screenwriter and actor. Yet despite these tentative steps towards success, the eldest of the children is still vastly outshone by his younger sister, Paris. Hers was the tribute everyone remembered from Michael Jackson's memorial service. “Ever since I was born, Daddy has been the best father you could ever imagine,” she said. “I just wanted to say I love him so much.”

Appearing on the Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2011, she said she had thought it odd that her father made her wear a mask in public. After years of home schooling, her grandmother sent her to school in Los Angeles, where she found that she was not recognised. “I was like, yes, I have a chance to be normal,” she said.

Normal still meant an exclusive private school. A reporter for the Mail on Sunday who visited the Mediterranean-style villa on the northern edge of Los Angeles where the children live with their grandmother, described a mansion set behind two vast security gates and its own solar system of mansions for relatives and staff. Still, life there appears vastly more stable than the hotel suites and rabid shopping expeditions that characterised the last years of her father's life. Paris described how he tried to make the hotels they stayed in feel like home. “He had this little projector that he would bring around and he'd take a white sheet off the bed and he'd pin it up. Then he'd put pillows all over the ground and we would watch DVDs and movies all the time, we had our own home theatre,” she told the newspaper. “It was difficult transitioning (to school) but I got the hang of it ... I'm not socially awkward any more. I used to be so weird, oh my God.”

Though she felt she was still “on a tight leash ... I have friends who are completely normal and hey, they don't even think of me as MJ's kid”. At school she had tried photography, American football and cheerleading. At home, she and her brothers “don't really have a lot in common. But when I do hang out with them we play video games a lot. Mortal Kombat gets pretty competitive in my house.”

Her grandmother said that she wanted “Paris to have a proper childhood. I want to protect her. The trouble is, there is a fine line between protecting her and allowing her to do her own thing and live her own life. That's a line I walk daily.”

Michael Jackson's own brothers and sisters have suggested that the singer would have been alarmed to see his daughter posting updates about her personal life on Twitter. Yet in her frequent missives about pets, friends and her taste in 1980s' music, she appears, if anything, miraculously sane.

“Free periods = naps” she wrote recently. Also: “Everyone thinks I'm over dramatic when I'm upset but like when an octopus is stressed out it eats itself, so yeah ... on that note, g'nite!”

Last week a 20-minute video that she had apparently shot in her bedroom, offering advice on make-up, appeared on YouTube. “Those of you who have not seen me without make-up, well, hello, this is my face,” she said. “It's kind of a shocker.”

The paradox here may be that her ability to appear normal and uninhibited on social media has made her hugely popular, thus perhaps denting her prospects of a normal and uninhibited life. She now has 1.2 million followers on Twitter and has entirely undone her father's careful attempts to keep her face out of the gossip columns of tabloid newspapers.

“Michael always used to say that Paris had a steely ferocity to her,” said Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, a friend of the late singer. “Prince was more pliable. She was a very determined little girl and she's grown up like that.”

Another person with a close knowledge of the family said that she was “having to grow up very fast but she understands her own strength. The kids realise that ultimately they hold all the power. The money follows them.”

This also lays her and her siblings open to tremendous pressure. “The kids represent Michael's legacy and a lot of people want to control that,” Boteach said. “It's not just the money or the music: they are Michael's living legacy on Earth.” Her late father's millions of fans, and her own, now hope for her recovery. Although she has contradicted persistent suggestions that she was bound to become a musician herself - declaring that her ambitions lay in medicine - she recently revealed an intention to rebuild his decaying Neverland ranch. “As soon as I'm an adult,” she said, snapping her fingers. “Count on it.”

I Was About To Say    

To all you people who complain about how TMZ should stop posting stories about Paris Jackson, if you feel so strongly about that then why don't you have something to say to Pegasus who has just posted not 1, not 2, but 3 articles from other sites about Paris Jackson. Where is your outrage now? Hypocrites.
