“Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ … [that] those close to [Michael Jackson’s only daughter] Paris suggested rehab after what law enforcement says was a suicide attempt over the weekend, landing her in the hospital,” TMZ reports, adding: “We’re told the attempted suicide shows some serious underlying problems … they say Paris is dealing with all sorts of emotional issues as well as substance abuse issues.”
The story adds: “TMZ broke the story … Paris slit her wrists and was rushed to a hospital early Saturday morning, where she was placed on a temporary 5150 hold. We’re told she’s been distraught ever since ‘Leaving Neverland’ began airing.
“As to why Paris was released just hours after she was hospitalized, our sources say she told the hospital that had admitted her that her lawyers were taking her to UCLA Medical Center, and the hospital let her go with the attorneys, but she never ended up at UCLA.”
People magazine writes: “On Saturday, the daughter of the late Michael Jackson denied TMZ’s report that she was placed on a 5150 hold and hospitalized after a suicide attempt earlier that day.
“ ‘F— you you f—ing liars,’ Jackson tweeted in response to the report.
“A source told People ‘Paris had an accident this morning that required medical treatment,’ adding ‘She is currently resting at home and doing fine.’”
