Is Paris Jackson’s suicide attempt a final cry for help bewildered fans ask.
Entertainer Michael Jackson’ s fifteen-year-daughter was hospitalized Wednesday morning after purportedly trying to cut her wrists and taking an overdose of an unknown substance.
According to sources the teenager has told confidantes that she has been a target of bullying. She stated that has been feeling “like an outsider” struggling to fit in. She reportedly has trouble connecting with people her age who share her interests.
“She’s very creatively minded and felt like an outsider,” an insider said. “She hasn’t been feeling very happy there at all.”
Paris posted some sad tweets on her account attesting to her inner sadness.
“I wonder why tears are salty?” read one of her tweets. Another read, “yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away now it looks as though they’re here to stay.”
Paris was admitted to a Los Angeles hospital at around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday for purported cuts on her wrists and for overdosing.
According to LAPD, the teenager was rushed to a hospital near her family home via ambulance. LAPD were responding to an emergency call from the home.
A lawyer for Katherine Jackson, Paris’ grandmother told reporters that her granddaughter suffered “with the loss of her father. But we don’t know what she was exposed to that precipitated this.” According to the grandmother Paris was “physically fine.”
Family members are providing all the support Paris needs and asked for privacy.
“We are grateful and appreciate the overwhelming concern for Paris from both the public and the media, but request privacy at this time while our family handles these issues together,” Michael Jackson’s older sister, La Toya Jackson said in a statement.
According to reports, Paris’s fans are bewildered. They wonder if Paris is “still emotionally devastated” over her father Michael Jackson’s death.
According to some reports, her depression over her father’s death, combined with being bullied may have led to her being depressed and attempt to kill herself.
At only age 15, fans say, Paris has experienced too many tragedies in her life. She apparently saw her father die in front of her eyes and had reportedly admitted that “growing up sucks because every day is a day without him.
“I love my dad, and I’m proud to be his daughter,” Paris told reporters. “I’m going to enjoy my childhood, because the older I get, the more life sucks.”
Sources state that this suicide attempt might be wake-call for grandmother Katherine Jackson.
“That might have been the straw that broke the camel’s back, but there have been problems long before this,” an insider said. “The Jackson kids never really got the professional help they needed after Michael died, and they need it. This incident is going to go one of two ways – it will either be a wake-up call to Katherine or it is only going to get worse.” Was it a desperate cry for help?
Michael Jackson died in June 2009 after a cardiac arrest at his home near Los Angeles. He was found by his personal physician not breathing who called 911. Jackson was treated by paramedics at the scene and was later pronounced dead at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center.
