Paris Jackson Transferred To UCLA Medical Center Where Michael Jackson Died

Jun 9, 2013 08:16 AM


Paris Jackson was transferred to UCLA Medical Center from Children's Hospital Los Angeles yesterady evening after ending her 72-hour psychiatric hold, TMZ reports. This is the same hospital where her father Michael Jackson passed away almost exactly four years ago.

The teen was initially rushed to West Hills Hospital and placed under psychiatric evaluation after allegedly cutting her wrist with a meat cleaver and consuming an excessive amount of Motrin pills on Wednesday morning at her Calabasas home.

A judge has ordered an investigation into Paris' suicide attempt to determine whether her "health, education and welfare" had been compromised under her grandmother Katherine's guardianship. After a court investigator presents the findings to a Superior Court judge, Paris may be placed under another family member's custody.

On the heels of her granddaughter Paris Jackson's suicide attempt, Katherine Jackson visited a medical building for a check-up.

The Jackson matriarch must have sustained a hand injury as she was spotted leaving a Beverly Hills medical facility with a brace on her right hand. Adding another woe to her already stressful predicament, the judge who made Katherine Paris' guardian has ordered an investigation into the teenager's attempted suicide, TMZ reports. A court investigator will determine whether her "health, education and welfare" have been compromised and privately report findings and recommendations to Superior Court Judge Mitchell L. Beckloff.

Paris is currently under psychiatric evaluation at Children's Hospital Los Angeles after cutting her wrist with a meat cleaver and consuming an excessive amount of Motrin pills on Wednesday morning at her Calabasas home. We hope this family receives some good news soon.



X17 EXCLUSIVE - Paris Jackson Transferred To L.A. Children's Hospital

Jun 7, 2013 10:27 AM


Paris Jackson was transferred to Children's Hospital Los Angeles for continued treatment after her Wednesday morning suicide attempt.

The hospital houses one of the nation's finest youth treatment centers in their Division of Adolescent Medicine's Behavioral Heath Program. They provide clinical services and behavioral/psychoeducational assessments and have staff specializing in adolescent mental health to provide:

    "... individual, family, collateral and group counseling, crisis intervention and case management support. Clinical areas of focus include depression, suicidal thoughts, anxiety and psychosomatic disorders, eating disorders, child abuse and neglect, exposure to violence, family issues and conflicts, school failure, drug abuse and co-occurring disorders, and gender-identity issues."

Various reports have pointed to a host of possible reasons for Paris' breakdown -- and certainly all of these issues must have led to the stress and depression that fueled the 15-year-old's wrist-slashing and over-medication.

    Factors fueling Paris Jackson's fragile emotional and mental state:
    • having to testify in her family's lawsuit against AEG
    • learning AEG reportedly had proof Michael Jackson wasn't Paris' biological father
    • Prince Michael's anger over Paris spending time with mom Debbie Rowe
    • backlash on social media after recent accusations of child molestation against Michael
    • reported bullying at school

Paris has been on a 5150 psychiatric hold since her admission to West Hills Medical Center early Wednesday morning. She could be released as early as tomorrow morning or she may choose to continue treatment at the Children's Hospital. That would have to come from her, though ... the mandatory hold would expire tomorrow ...

New Details On Paris Jackson's Fights With Her Brother Prince

Jun 7, 2013 08:38 AM


We already knew Paris Jackson and her brother Prince Michael were fighting prior to her hospitalization for an alleged suicide attempt on Wednesday morning, and now new details have emerged about the strained relationship between Michael Jackson's two oldest kids.

Paris recently began spending time with their biological mother Debbie Rowe after several years of estrangement, and apparently and her older brother didn't approve of the new relationship, reports Us Weekly.

"[Paris and Prince] were always so insanely close until Debbie came back in the picture, and Paris wanted to get close with her," a source tells the mag. "Paris wanted her mom in her life, but Paris was younger and Prince remembers all of the awful things Michael told them about Debbie. Prince feels Paris is betraying their father by getting close to Debbie."

"Paris made her own decision to get to know her mom and found she really liked her," the source continued. "She loves the stories Debbie has told her about her dad." However, Prince was not a fan of the newfound bond between Paris and her mom. "He has these massive fights with her and calls Paris a backstabber for getting to know 'that woman,'" the insider reveals. "Paris and Prince fight all the time, and it really hurts Paris as they used to be close."

Another source of stress for Paris is the fact that she is "terrified" of testifying at the ongoing wrongful death lawsuit the Jacksons are bringing against concert promoter AEG. Paris will likely be asked about her father’s health and state of mind before he died, and the events of the day he died. Now it's being reported that AEG claims to have "irrefutable" proof that Michael is not the biological father of Prince or Paris, which they wish to bring to court. The Jackson family lawyers argue that the issue is irrelevant, and AEG is just seeking to embarrass the family, but that has to be yet another thing weighing on poor Paris.

Jun 6, 2013 12:00 PM


The news of Paris Jackson's suicide attempt is sad and shocking, but some of the biggest names in Hollywood have come forward and offered their words of support during this difficult time.

"Dear Paris Jackson, don't let bullies to let you down," Demi Lovato tweeted today. "We believe in you!! Stay strong, Please ... You're beautiful and we love you. #Praying."

Lovato has been very public about her struggles with depression and self harm, and not only was she very open about her decision to seek treatment, but she's been very candid about her darkest days. In the August 2012 issue of Self magazine, Lovato said, “There were times I felt so anxious, almost like I was crawling out of my skin, that if I didn’t do something physical to match the way I felt inside, I would explode. I cut myself to take my mind off that. I just didn’t care what happened. I had no fear.”

Other celebs have sent their love to Paris as well. Alyssa Milano wrote, "@parisjackson Sending you support and love," while R&B star Keri Hilson tweeted, "Life will turn around. God, please give this young girl the peace in her heart until that time... #ParisJackson."

Will.i.am tweeted, "Paris Jackson apparently is in the hospital after trying to commit suicide. I am very sorry to hear this, and I hope that she will be okay," and Russell Simmons added, "my prayers are with Paris Jackson and her family at this time.."

A spokeswoman at German TV station ZDF said in a statement that the production team is in contact with Prince's management, which canceled his trip to Europe.

Does Paris Jackson Have A History Of Cutting?

Jun 5, 2013 02:45 PM


Paris Jackson was rushed to West Hills Medical Center around 2am on Wednesday morning after reportedly cutting her wrist with a meat cleaver and taking a large quantity of Motrin, and it's been revealed that this is not the first time the late King of Pop's daughter has attempted suicide.

Various websites have posted the Instagram photo of Paris above and pointed out that she has what appears to be cut marks on her arm, and after looking through our own photo archive, we noticed several other photos where the 16-year-old has some sort of linear scar on her left forearm:


Paris wrote a suicide note, and after calling a suicide hotline, the person she spoke with called 911. Around 2am Paris was put on a stretcher and rushed to West Hills Medical Center, where she was placed under a 5150 psychiatric hold for 72 hours.

The news of Paris' suicide attempt is sad and shocking, but she's certainly not the first young starlet to have her struggles put out in the open. Demi Lovato has spoken candidly about overcoming depression and self harm. In the August issue of Self magazine, Lovato said, “There were times I felt so anxious, almost like I was crawling out of my skin, that if I didn’t do something physical to match the way I felt inside, I would explode. I cut myself to take my mind off that. I just didn’t care what happened. I had no fear.”

Demi also revealed in the new issue of Rolling Stone that she was suicidal at the age of seven. “The principal called my parents and made me sign this suicide contract saying that I would not kill myself. They weren’t expecting that so young,” she told the mag.

Maybe Demi will reach out to MJ's daughter in time?
