Paris Jackson's Attempted Suicide: Family Lawyer Speaks

A family representative for Paris Jackson has released a statement following her apparent suicide attempt on Wednesday (June 5).

“Paris is physically fine and getting appropriate medical attention,” Sandra Ribera, attorney for Paris‘s legal co-guardian Katherine Jackson, said in a statement (via People). “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. Please respect her privacy and the family’s privacy.”

FYI: The fourth anniversary of the death of Paris‘ father Michael Jackson is on June 25.

“We appreciate everyone’s thoughts for Paris at this time and their respect for the family’s privacy,” her mom Debbie Rowe‘s lawyer said in a statement.

Paris reportedly cut her wrists with a meat cleaver, took a large portion of Motrin pills, and also left a suicide note, according to TMZ.

    Poor darling. Hang in there, Paris. Things DO get better.

  • Emma

    WOW, poor girl…growing without parents is hard, especially when there’s so much pressure on you, media attention and crazy family left and right…

  • http://- Kate

    Hang in there Paris! Hope you feel better in no time. You’re in my prayers.

  • K

    Poor sweetheart. God Bless you.

  • ha ha

    Even with money, hearing negative stuff about your father (not even biological), having to go to court, the rest of the family not really nice to her, etc, alot for a young teen to deal with, I actually feel bad for her. Glad her attempt failed.

  • Tesa

    He refers to her as a “Sensitive” 15-year-old? How about a 15-year-old crying out for help? The family is in denial. Paris please stay strong. 3 more years to go and you can take your money and leave that dysfunction behind just like Janet did! Take CONTROL Paris. We support you.

  • mel

    I feel bad for her.
    she has like no one at all.
    the jackson family is a huge mess
    and all they care about is the money
    poor girl ;( feel so sorry for her..

  • Reality Bites

    It’s too bad Jolie and Pitt can’t take her in. They seem like they would be a good influence. And with Jolie’s history of cutting and depression.. she could show her that you just need to hang in there and work your way though it.

  • Journalistic

    Tragic news. I wish her health and happiness.

    @Reality Bites:

    Biggest laugh of the day…she can show her how to starve too. Great role model! NOT.

  • Pinkrose

    Twice her mother “sold” her. Disappeared from her life for large sums of money from Michael Jackson. Returned seeking more money. Disappeared again after receiving more money. Then Paris loses the father she loves, so stupidly. Debbie Rowe could not even petition for any visitation rights or custody because she “sold” her rights so irretrivably, no judge would look approvingly at her. Even then, Paris still sought her out for a relationship. It’s hard for a young girl to understand why her mother did not want her. And her father’s family is so dysfuntional.

    LMFAO, still quoting from Wayne’s World, now that’s the biggest laugh of the day!

  • betduke

    Of course she would do something like this. This girl needs a paternity test to get her doubts settled.

  • thetruth

    It’s great people out there care about her.

    But as someone who has had suicide hit very close to home, it’s pretty tasteless that you put the details of her attempt. Do you really think a gossip blog, especially one like Just Jared, finds it moral or even of good character to advertise those details.

    I’m not easily offended, but right now I am very offended.

  • thetruth

    I used to love this site. I’m not coming back after this.

  • shoegal421

    I hope she gets the help she needs. Obviously, being “sensitive” isn’t the issue, it’s someone who is need of serious help.

  • Domino

    @LooseLipz: Haha, I second this. WTF.

  • blur

    Poor girl. Whole family is crazy. Someone should be held accountable for allowing a mentally unstable popstar who thought he was peter pan with accusations of being a child molester adopt a bunch of kids (or buying donated sperm and inseminating it into his bought “wife”). Clearly he was not a fit parent…and clearly he was full of self hatred and he didn’t want black kids so he created these poor kids. You know there’s no way they are his biologically so who helped him get them? Who carried out the insemination and are there no regulations for these things?

  • Rocky

    Poor sweetheart. Tough being in the Jackson family, no matter which Jackson it is. They are always under the microscope. I pray that she’ll get the help she needs and MUST remember that this is not what her father would have wanted for her. Stay strong Paris!!

  • blur

    The problem with the Jackson family isn’t that they are under the media microscope – it’s that they are all bat crazy!!!!!

    Grandpa Joe is a psychopath who used his kids without remorse and even after his sons death all he cared about was the money he could earn from it, Grandma Katherine is an uneducated, devout follower of a secluded cult and daddy Michael was a sexually ambiguous man child who had some form of mental disorder for sure – emotionally unstable to say the least

  • Justice-Rainger

    She’s just a little idiotic stupid bitch, just how her aunt Janet called her a year or so ago – and she was right. This little stupid bitch just doesn’t know how to attract the attention. What a little cocky slut. They must hit her hard and sent to school.

  • Justice-Rainger

    So sad she didn’t die. Hope she’ll try again and finally died and leave us alone.

  • Justice-Rainger

    @blonco vadra:
    Shut up you!!!n How can you say all of this? Do you think that she’ll thank you for it? No! She don’t care about you!

  • Ask Alice

    Michael Jackson might have been the person she felt closet to, but it’s highly unlikely he was her biological father. Both Paris and her older brother look nothing like Jackson. But they both do bear a striking resemblance to his dermatologist, Arnold Klein.

  • Marie

    @Justice-Rainger: Yea you need help. No one is forcing you to read theses articles so it obvious you have nothing else better to do. God forbid something like this happen to someone you cared about

  • Margarita Law

    Thank you so much for sharing this post. I’ve never hear this on TV. I’ve been busy lately. Well, anyway I hope she will be fine and that she will find comfort from her relatives and friends who are always there for her.
