Paris Jackson Attempts Suicide

yesterday all my troubles seemed so far away

In sad speculative news, the late Michael Jackson's daughter Paris has been hospitalized, following a suicide attempt. According to a developing article in the Huffington Post, the 15-year-old was rushed to hopsital by ambulance after police received a 911 call from her family home in Calabasas, Los Angeles.

One of the surviving children of singer Michael Jackson, Paris lives with grandmother Katherine Jackson and brothers Prince and Blanket.

It is too early to speculate about what prompted the teen to make an attempt on her own life, though she was discovered with cuts to her wrists and was suspected of overdosing. After a crazy custody case, she had been back in contact with her biological mother Debbie Rowe, who claimed her daughter "had a lot going on lately."

Her Twitter account offers little in the way of clues, yet is rife with song lyrics, including those to 'Yesterday' by the Beatles: "yesterday , all my troubles seemed so far away ... now it looks as though they're here to stay." And on the less eloquent side: "love is dumb and so are you." and "people suck!" 

Her family lawyer confirmed that "[Paris] suffered with the loss of her father ... But we don't know what she was exposed to that precipitated this." Yet some sources surmise that it may have something to do with the imminent fourth anniversary of her father's death. Another source claims that Paris tried to kill herself because she wasn't allowed to go to a Marilyn Manson concert.

Though Paris claimed her father did his best to protect all his children, no doubt their upbringing was far from typical, what with names like Blanket and Prince...

Her grandmother released the following statement:

"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."
Let's hope she recovers and is able to rise above her tumultuous childhood.
