While Paris Jackson is receiving treatment following her suicide attempt, more details of her crisis have emerged.
As reported Wednesday she was hospitalized after taking a large number of Motrin pills and cutting her forearm with a kitchen knife. According to TMZ, she has been placed under a 72-hour psychiatric hold, so she won't be allowed to leave that facility for the next couple days. She also received "numerous stitches for her cut."
The website also reports that Paris wrote a suicide note, but wisely also called a suicide hotline. It was that crisis intervention worker who contacted 911 and was able to get her help in time.
Some possible reasons behind the incident have come to light beyond the questionable initial report that she was merely upset about not being able to attend a Marilyn Manson concert. As the third anniversary of her father's death approaches later this month, she obviously has emotional issues that she's dealing with.
"Paris has been very, very depressed for a while. She's been throwing fits and tantrums, kicking and screaming and cutting herself," a source tells People magazine. "She misses her father greatly. She was the center of Michael's world and it's all different now. She says that she is lonely and that she doesn't feel loved."
Paris's grandmother and guardian Katherine Jackson seemed to echo that in her statement given to omg! yesterday, saying, "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. Paris is physically fine and is getting appropriate medical attention. Please respect her privacy and the family's privacy."
