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.

She NEEDS to be away from the Jackson family. I belive that giving Debbie Rowe custody would be very helpful to this girl.

@STFUP....I agree. I've been saying that all along.

Let her live with her mother on the ranch, learn about horses, muck stalls, get dirty and just be a kid for god sakes. Not the Jacksons money pawn.

Jacksons don't want to give up the kids, there goes the money. They aren't going to let that happen.

Maybe she would feel better if she swam with a Sea Lion like Joe Francis? He looks real happy.

This makes me so sad. I hope she gets ALL the help she needs, and goes to live with Debbie when she's feeling better. The Jacksons have no clue how to be normal.

Excuse me? "they need to figure out the triggers that plunge her into darkness" Wouldn't having Michael Jackson as your "father" qualify, or when younger, always having to wear a mask when in public, or just simply living in the Jackson household? The best thing that can happen to this girl is live with her mother, permanently.

I really feel for her, she's a beautiful girl who obviously is in tremendous emotional pain, I think it's in VERY poor taste to splash something like this all over the tabs. MJ kept these kids AWAY from the media for reasons just LIKE this.

How much did her formative years,spent with MJ, contribute to her mental instability and confusion?
He had a bizarre personality & used drugs. How many nannies & nurses did they have?

If I had gone to a martial arts class instead of a therapist's office at that age I would have saved myself years of misery, paranoia, and humiliation. Martial arts can help a young girl develop physical and mental awareness and positive self-esteem, as well as protect her energetically and psychically. The projections of others and the power of suggestion alone can lead a person to a very dark place, to be the target of so much speculation without having the defenses to protect herself must be very difficult. But these are skills which can be developed. Nothing is impossible. May she find the light inside herself, may those who can be trusted be willing and able to comfort her. Prayers for the entire family.
