Paris Jackson

Deep in Dark 'Cutting' World

6/24/2013 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Paris Jackson
will be in treatment for months, for a dark depression that is putting her life in serious jeopardy ... TMZ has learned.

We're told Paris' family is scoffing at law enforcement claims that her "suicide attempt" earlier this month was merely a cry for help.  We're told when the bandages on her arm were removed, the damage was "horrifying."  As one source put it, "Paris absolutely tried to kill herself, and it wasn't the first time."

Our sources say Paris is deep into the world of cutting.  We've seen Paris' Tumblr page, and it's filled with pics of death, suicide and cutting.  Several pics show teenagers putting guns in their mouths.  As for cutting, the pics are graphic and very bloody.  In one pic you see a girl with scissors cutting her arm with a caption, "I f**king hate myself."

Another pic shows an arm with writing over the cutting area that reads, "Suicide slice here."

In one posting, there's a piece of paper with the following type:  "Why did you try to kill yourself?"  The answer:  "You told me to be happy."

And there are other photos of young girls who have just cut themselves and blood is everywhere.

And it looks like Paris reached out from time to time to get help, because there are several postings which have anti-cutting messages.

Family sources tell TMZ ... Paris is "doing better" at UCLA Medical Center but is still in denial and is fighting therapy.   Although she has no desire now to cut herself again, we're told professionals are warning the family they need to figure out the triggers that plunge her into darkness.

Sources tell us ... Paris will move from UCLA to another treatment center, and she could be there for 3 months.

It says something about this culture that a picture of a girl trying to hurt or kill herself is okay but a word for having sex has to be censored (not that I'm condoning censorship in either case; but it seems like sometimes the influences in this country are obsessed with trying to deny the existence of sex at all other costs. Where is our compassion?)

Where were her "guardians" at while she was posting all this? I don't think she was trying to commit suicide not with a meat cleaver and Motrin.

This isn't normal teenage angst. Something very bad is troubling Paris. Not having a mother and having a father as mentally ill as MJ is bad enough, but she probably suffered some kind of additional abuse in her childhood to create this kind of pain.

I don't believe anything this family says regarding Paris. She is fighting treatment and has no desire to cut herself. I think that means that the treatment is working against her. They don't seem to be helping her, they just are keeping her locked up to look for clues. I don't think that is fair to disrupt her life like that.

Those pictures are disgusting. How come people are only concerned about them now if htey were up for so long. She didn't seem to be in a dark depression. I think she really hates living with the Jacksons now that Tito Jr. is in charge. They don't want that information to get out, so they are having her kept indefinately in the hospital.

For all we know, the Jacksons could have just put up those pictures. It says that people cut because someone told them to feel happy. I could see Paris acting like this. I could see her wanting to feel destructive as a cry for help because people expect her to be happy under impossible cir***stances.

Community hospital psych wards are just a meat mill where they run patients through giving them whatever meds they feel like trying out and not really caring what their problems are. Psychiatry is just a money making machine that pushes pills and makes people into human zombies and mind controlled slaves.

Her fake family doesn't care about her at all. Maybe her brothers and Katherine do, but the rest of them are trying to exploit her for all she is worth, and they have been allowed to take charge.

The brothers probably wouldn't dare speak out and say anything, because they would end up in the same mess. Katherine likes to spoil her real kids, so she is of no use.

The rabbids are funny. I think they are in a cult where everybody is somehow brain-washed to think one way - everybody besides MJ and his "children" are to blame for everything that happens to them, ever - pass, now or future, period! Don't trust the media unless what is being reported happens to match with what they project into MJ's life.

They really think MJ is a God!!! But the only different is that this God has had no input or control over his or his children's destiny!!!

If this story is true, it is not because MJ never spent anytime teaching and preparing these children for a complex life, but because the people around them are greedy to the extend that they murdered their God and now going after His children!!!

Could it be all these people blogging about her not being Michael's real daughter? I mean really people let it go already. He raised them, and loved those 3 beautiful children from the day they were born, from the time he closed his eyes. Some people are like a dog with a bone. LET IT GO ALREADY!!!!!!!!!!!

They sometimes keep kids locked up for years, especially if they have money. Once you get lost in that system, they could say anything about you and no one believes the truth any more. I think the dirty Jacksons are threatened by such a sweet, honest, outspoken girl living so close to them. They are probably afraid that she could spill the beans on a lot of things.

She should be living with her mother, not this crazy family. Tito Jr. is an absentee guardian there to replace another guardian who went AWOL. These people are not interested in being there for Pairs enough.

Speaking of teens who disappear into institutions, whatever happened to Dhzokhar Tsarnaev? You would think we would be hearing about who his lawyer is and when his court dates are. So far we have heard zero. I wonder if he is dead. I doubt he survived a bullet to the throat at close range, to be honest.

Going to school and mixing with those attention seekers has turned her into one, and having unfettered access to Twitter and thus the world, is not helping.
