Paris Jackson, now 15 years old, and the daughter of the late, and great Michael Jackson had to be rushed to the hospital yesterday, early in the morning. She had apparently cut one of her wrist, sources close to the family confirmed. Earlier that morning/night she had called a suicide counselling hot line. The operator on that line was so concerned that he called 911 to check on Paris at her home in Calabasas. Paris Jackson obviously needs help, it probably was a cry for help, but does she need her relatives to help her? They certainly have a questionable reputation, and might not be the best for her right now.
It just has been reported by sources that Paris hadn’t cut herself because of some sort of dispute, but more because of her powerlessness. In their own words: “It absolutely wasn’t an overdose. Paris didn’t take any pills, she cut herself and she absolutely didn’t have a temper tantrum about not being allowed to go to a Marilyn Manson concert, as has been reported. What’s more, she has never attempted suicide in the past. [She was] emotionally distraught about having to go to court. Paris wants nothing to do with the trial and is unwilling to do so.”
Perry Sanders, Jackson family attorney, commented: “Being a sensitive 15-year-old is difficult no matter who you are, it is especially difficult when you lose the person closest to you. Paris is physically fine and is getting appropriate medical attention. Please respect her privacy and the family’s privacy.”
Paris herself had posted several tweets on Tuesday evening that in hindsight should have been a cause for concern: “i wonder why tears are salty?” followed by: “yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away, now it looks as though they’re here to stay” It might just have been an action of an over sensitive 15-year-old, however it might also indicate that Paris Jackson has bigger problems, and probably needs professional help. Her Jackson relatives should not be the ones to help her. The reasons why:
– Randy Jackson, the brother of Michael who claimed in 2002 that his will was fake. Who tried to kidnap his niece, and nephews, and when it all went wrong ended up being hauled away by the police.
– Randy wasn’t alone. Janet, and Jermaine were involved in this strange situation as well. They wanted Paris to go, and live with her grandmother, but Paris didn’t want to. She also didn’t want her relatives being in her house. Once Paris didn’t want to give up her phone, Janet tried to grab it and said nasty things: “You’re a spoiled little b*tch!”
– Let’s not even have a look at the grandparents. (Joe Jackson who used to beat Michael, and his mother Katherine who did nothing about it.)
The list actually continues, and the same motives can be found. Greed, and power plays. It’s such a tragedy the children got caught up in this. Let’s hope Paris gets the help she needs, and that she can stay as far away from her Jackson relatives as possible. Let’s hope it’s not too late yet.
