Paris Jackson Rushed to Hospital in Reported Suicide Attempt

Paris Jackson was reportedly rushed to the hospital in the early hours of Wednesday morning (June 5) in Calabasas, Calif.

The 15-year-old daughter of the late Michael Jackson reportedly attempted to end her life after 911 call came in with conflicting reports of cutting and/or overdose, according to TMZ.

The evening before, Paris posted some cryptic tweets.

“i wonder why tears are salty ?” she posted. “yesterday , all my troubles seemed so far away now it looks as though they’re here to stay.”

Paris is reportedly doing okay.

Our thoughts go out to Paris and the Jackson family during this time.

    OMG that is so so sad! She is at a very impressionable age where all your hormones are all out of whack, plus the scrutiny and microscope she is under, having your “dad’ be Michael Jackson, that crazy family, plus all her mommy issues… God that poor girl! I hope she gets the help she needs!

  • Toni

    What? No, thats so sad! My thoughts are with her :(

    I hope its just misinformation :(

  • guest

    I’m sorry to hear this.. the other day I’ve read that she wants to become a heart surgeon to help people and now this.. she seemed very determined.. I hope everything turns out ok for her..

  • Toni

    @Not your friend: Thats extremely insensitive.

  • Duh.

    @Lexy: It’s really unnecessary to air out all her issues. She’s going through a rough time and we should be focused on what’s going on now, not her past issues.

  • someguy

    I seriously hope she will be getting some proper help.

    However, why would you post that here, Jared, she is a 14-year old, plus this post is pretty much the opposite of what she probably needs.

  • ysis

    So sad to hear this. I followed her on Twitter for a long time and she’s such a witty and smart girl. Truly wonderful. Such b-s that Wade Robson had to bring up the past like that, ruining this girls life. I hope she’s ok and will get some help. Must be hard to go through so much public scrutiny at such a young age.

  • Hanna

    Paris has been through a lot at her age. She lost her dad, has to deal with crazy and greedy relatives, the media glare, the AEG trial, more molestation allegations against her dad, and the anniversary of her dad’s death a few weeks away well it’s so much emotional stuff to handle. I hope that Paris gets the help and support she needs to get through this difficult time. I wish her well.

  • Toni

    @Duh.: At least she was trying to be supportive, I’ll give her that.

  • emmy

    omg no! :( out of all people, she has no reason to do that. shes a very stunning and sweet girl that seems to have a good head on her shoulders. she has mentioned that shes been bullied in the past so it can either be that or family problems or depression. i really hope she gets better. its always the good people that want to end their lives too soon because other people keep hurting them and then they feel like giving everything up. stay strong paris!

  • N

    You should not be reporting this about a 14 year old girl. You’re going to make her more depressed and hopeless.

  • Helen


    You’re probably going to get flagged but I agree with you.

  • Toni

    After reading @someguy’s comment.. I wish this wasnt posted here as well..

    It may be news, but such a shame that its all over the web- she’s just 14, we should’nt even know about this.

  • yourfriend

    I think she wanted to commit suicide because of drugs:

    “yesterday , all my troubles seemed so far away now it looks as though they’re here to stay.”

    But, what troubles does this girl have? Affection problems? Michael should still be here.

  • RAOF

    It’s really funny. She has lots of money, a wonderful life and she tries to commit suicide. Here in Brazil I need to kill a lion everyday to survive, Almost selling the lunch to buy the dinner and I really love the life! OMG!

  • Toni

    @RAOF: Money doesnt make everything perfect you know. We are all human.

  • miapocca

    Extreme invasion of privacy for a teenager…whoever reported this should be ashamed of themselves. She is not a public figure. Before micheal dies we did nto even know what the kids looked like

  • Tecas

    She’s only 14 so she has to put up with the Jackson madness for 4 more years. That’s a long time. Plus the grandmother has too many family members living in that house. She should become emancipated as soon as possible. If she’s being bullied, she should go back to home schooling.


    probably wants to be with her daddy

  • Toni

    @someguy: I agree. I don’t think this should be posted on a gossip site.

  • Duh.

    Unfortunately EVERY gossip site is posting this. Not just JJ.

  • kara85


    wow, what an insensitive comment!
    money does not always make people happy, you can have all the money in the world and still be depressed and extremely unhappy and messed up if you do not a family or friends that loves and support you.
    she is just a 14 years kid, leave her alone!
    Hope she gets all the help she needs.

  • Karen

    I think Debbie Rowe told her too much stuff that should have waited till she was older. Sometimes too much info is just not that good whether it’s truth or not, too much is just too much.

  • siennagold

    So sad! I actually like her. Wishing her the best and hope she gets help real soon!

  • Mkhay

    Its a shame that people here think money in turn brings happiness. & Instead pouring out condolences for a 14 year old girl who commit suicide all they can think about is to criticize her. Society is so messed up.

  • schoolbaby

    @Mkhay: That’s what they really think. Their real thoughts. They are bullies themselves. Still we have to respect the fact that everyone should do what makes them feel better and happier. Wow a little respect! They are scary you know?

  • lola-c

    that’s heartbreaking. It probably has a lot to do with teenage hormones, I was really depressed when I was her age, but i grew out of it. they always say Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem

  • TC

    Some of these posts are just cruel. I don’t care who it is in this world, I would feel so sad if they tried to kill themself.

    This girl has everything going for her, with looks and money. She is obviously hurt by something. Most likely her crazy family or all the people claiming to be her parent.

    I think there was some man claiming to be her real dad not that long ago.

  • schoolbaby

    @lola-c: Teenage hormones? She probably started realizing what she really is and people put her down because of that giving her drugs, bullying… I don’t know.

  • KissThis

    This is extremely sad to read. And I too wish media wasn’t talking about it, but they’re going to. I hope she gets the help she needs and gets back out there. I know the wounds of losing someone you really love don’t go away, but I wish for Paris that she can get through this.

  • Assassin


    There are no lions in Brazil except in a zoo, idiot

  • LooseLipz

    She’s such a beautiful sensitive talented young lady. But, her living situation is really not so wonderful the last few years. Going from the grandparents to her Uncles…her aunts are nutty and the whole family greedy. I feel extremely sorry for these kids, money aside, they are the ones who suffer the most.
    I hope she doesn’t continue to try to take her own life…this is not her first try.

  • Olivia

    Poor kid, her life isn’t perfect at all! She has money and what? She has no parents, her father is dead and wasn’t her biological dad, her mother was basically an egg donor and a surrogate but htey don”t really have a relationship. Sadly I’m not surprised, when your dad is MJ with all the media scandals and family affairs I don’t think you can be fully stable. No wonder Michael try to protect them from the world.

  • Delia

    I’m sorry to hear that, I hope she gets help to ovecome what’s behind this. Perhaps it she has come to realize that there is no way she is Michael Jackson’s daughter. I’m sorry, but there is no way a black man and a white woman have a white, or black, child They have a mixed race child as she is obviously not mixed race.

  • reah


    If she did not want the public scrutiny, she would not be on twitter and Facebook, now would she?

  • reah

    Why are you here?

  • RyanCope

    Shame on all the media for sharing it with the world. So unbelievably messed up.

  • disaster waiting to happen

    This girl should have been living far away from the Jacksons, from LA, NY and maybe even from the States. There is absolutely no reason for her to be famous and to be in the industry anyway, it will only destroy her.

  • Tecas

    Paris was strong enough to take on the whole Jackson family using Twitter and won! I would investigate this fully to make sure nobody in that family was trying to hurt her in anyway to get her out of the picture and get at her money…

  • Clara

    “Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away
    Now it looks as though they’re here to stay
    Oh, I believe in yesterday”

    It’s a Beatles’ song. People usually tweets lyrics of their favourite songs, so no one could have known.

  • Warren

    She’s so pretty and doesn’t want for money. I thought she was going to do great, but I guess with out family behind you it’s kind of hard. Hope she gets the help she needs.

  • gilowrt

    she is not MJ’s daughter

    there is NO WAY thats possible

  • uhhh

    She must have found out that her white trash mom sold her.

  • Venus7star

    Killing a lion everyday gives you something concrete to keep your mind busy. Not having to kill a lion everyday gives you plenty of time to think and rethink your life. When so much stressfull and sad situations come to you you, sometimes even mentally mature and stable adults lose it.

    Actually if she committed an attempt to kill herself, unconsciently she probably wanted the world to know she’s unhappy, as well as stopping the pain that submerged her. Now everyone is aware and hopefuly she’ll get help to go through this stronger. But in the end she’s the only one who can make the decision to be happy again, no matter what happens in her life.

  • Lilly

    @reah: Any normal kid nowadays has Facebook and Twitter. She’s being a regular teenager by partaking in social media outlets.

  • Barbara

    So sad, get well very soon Paris!

  • J

    Michael Jackson should have known better than to try and raise children. Even Janet Jackson is a major weirdo. The Kardashians look just about normal next to this bunch. Hope these kids get some decent parenting from some normal people one day.

  • flo

    OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! poor paris!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WTF HAPPENED?!

  • adorable

    She must be unhappy living with the Jacksons and Michaels friends should get involved and find another place for her to live. Someone other than the family should be looking out for her so where are they?

  • Rebecca

    You know the teen years are very hard for a lot of kids. She is obviously no different. This has nothing to do with her name or who she is its all to do with the fact she is a teen.
