Michael Jackson’s 15-year-old daughter, Paris Jackson, was rushed to the hospital and put on psychiatric hold after calling a suicide hotline early Wednesday morning.
Jackson reportedly needed several stitches for self-inflicted cuts on her right arm. She was also said to have taken a “large number” of over-the-counter anti-inflammatory pills (Motrin).
A source for TMZ says that though this was not her first attempt, it was “far more serious” than past incidents.
TMZ also claims that Jackson cut herself with a meat clever and left a suicide note after she found out that she was not allowed to attend a Marilyn Manson/Alice Cooper concert. The website has two photos of Paris with scars on her arms.
Marlon, Jackie, Tito Jackson’s joint statement: “Thank you for the outpouring of concern and support for Paris. She is safe and doing fine. We truly appreciate you respecting our family privacy at this time.”
Jackson family lawyer Perry Sanders’ statement: “Paris is physically fine and is getting appropriate medical attention … 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.”
