Paris Jackson Attempts Suicide With Meat Cleaver
Michael Jackson’s daughter, Paris, attempted suicide earlier today.
TMZ broke the news, revealing that the teen was rushed to the hospital from her Calabasas, Calif., home around 2 a.m. Wednesday morning (June 5).
She apparently called a suicide hotline after cutting her right forearm with a meat cleaver and leaving a suicide note — there is no word yet on what was left in the missive. The person answering Paris’ call informed 911 of the incident at 1:27 a.m.
Paris reportedly ingested a large amount of Motrin pill as well.
After being transported to a nearby hospital when she was found, the King of Pop’s daughter was placed under a 5150 psychiatric hold for 72 hours.
She received several stitches for the cut caused by the cleaver.
Eric George, a lawyer for Debbie Rowe, Paris’ mother, released a statement to TMZ about the harrowing ordeal. “We appreciate everyone’s thoughts for Paris at this time and their respect for the family’s privacy,” the statement read.
An attorney for Katherine Jackson, Michael Jackson’s mother and Paris’ grandmother, assured the public that her granddaughter was being treated for her injuries. “Paris is physically fine and is getting appropriate medical attention,” a statement released to TMZ read.
