According to TMZ.com, daughter of the late Michael Jackson, Paris, has possibly tried to commit suicide. Only yesterday, the Internet was abuzz with adorable makeup tutorials she had been posting on YouTube that I watched some of and thought how sweet and happy and grounded she seemed. Apparently something happened between then and now because sources tell TMZ she tried to harm herself in what appeared to be a suicide attempt. She was taken by ambulance from her Calabasas home to hospital on a stretcher at about 2 a.m. this morning. Someone phoned from the residence at about 1:27 a.m., reporting a possible overdose (although sources say there was also cutting). On Tuesday, she got dark on Twitter, writing ‘I wonder why tears are salty?’ and then quoted song lyrics ‘yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away now it looks as though they’re here to stay.’ Apparently, she’s still in hospital, but she’s recovering well.
UPDATE: Her biological mother Debbie Rowe confirmed in a statement to Entertainment Tonight that Paris Jackson did attempt suicide and is currently recovering in a Los Angeles hospital. Rowe adds, Jackson has had ‘a lot going on [lately].’ The teen had cuts on her wrist and LA County Fire confirms that they received a 911 call for an overdose at the residence at that time.
UPDATE: A source tells TMZ, Paris has ‘tried this [a possible suicide attempt] in the past’ but ‘this was far more serious. It was not a cry for help.’
