New updates have been released about the suicide attempt by Michael Jackson’s only daughter Paris.
As we reported earlier, the 15-year-old was rushed a Los Angeles hospital around 2 a.m. after suffering an overdose.
TMZ is now reporting that the teen took about 20 Motrin pills and cut her arm with a meat cleaver. She has “numerous stitches” and will be under psychiatric hold for the next 72 hours.According to Paris’ grandmother Katherine Jackson, she’s receiving “appropriate medical attention.”
Her biological mother, Debbie Rowe, confirmed the attempt to ETOnline, and a 911 dispatch call reveals that Paris cut herself with a kitchen knife and took as many as 20 ibuprofen pills.
“Being a sensitive 15-year-old is difficult no matter who you are,” Katherine said in a statement. “It is especially difficult when you lose the person closest to you.”
Sources say the teenager has been dealing with major depression issues since her father’s death in 2009.
In addition to her injuries, TMZ reports Paris left a suicide note. Further information on the letter’s content has yet to be released.
Several members of the Jackson family released statements thanking people for their support:
“Being a sensitive 15 year old is difficult no matter who you are,” wrote Perry Sanders Jr., attorney for Katherine Jackson. “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.”
Michael Jackson’s brothers Tito, Jackie and Marlon Jackson told ET, “Thank you for the outpouring of concern and support for Paris. She is safe and doing fine. We truly appreciate you respecting our family’s privacy at this time.”
La Toya Jackson added, “We are grateful and appreciate the overwhelming concern for Paris from both the public and the media, but request privacy at this time while our family handles these issues together.”
We appreciate everyone’s thoughts for Paris at this time and their respect for the family’s privacy,” said a statement from Eric George, an attorney for Rowe.
As previously reported by NewsOne, Katherine Jackson shares guardianship of her son’s three children — Paris, Prince, 16, and Blanket, 11 — with the singer’s nephew, TJ Jackson.
