Paris Jackson attempts suicide with kitchen knife
15-year-old Paris is “getting appropriate medical
attention”. She was taken from her Calabasas family home on a stretcher and communicated
to a nearby hospital.
Perry Sanders, a Jackson family lawyer, said: “Being a sensitive 15-year-old is difficult no matter who you are”.
He also said, “It is especially difficult when you lose the person closest to you [her father]. Paris is physically fine and is getting appropriate medical attention. Please respect her privacy and the family’s privacy.”
Sources said there were multiple cuts on Paris’s wrist. Before taking this drastic step, Paris tweeted late evening, “I wonder why tears are salty?” one of her tweets read.
In another tweet, she said: “yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away now it looks as though they`re here to stay.”
According to People magazine, a source had revealed some time back that “Paris has been going through a lot of teenage angst and feels a little bit unloved.”
“Three months ago Paris reached out to her mother and told her she wanted to establish a relationship with her. Debbie was open to it and [Jackson`s guardian and grandmother] Katherine Jackson is supportive,” the source added.
Paris, who lost her father Michael Jackson in June 2009, also has two brothers - Prince and Blanket.
