TMZ writes that Jackson has a problem with cutting and while the Jackson family may scoff at the label of “suicide attempt,” sources tell the site that the damage on Paris’ arm was “horrifying.”
“Paris absolutely tried to kill herself, and it wasn’t the first time,” says one source.
TMZ also says it has seen Paris’ Tumblr page (there is no link provided, and we could not locate it — perhaps it has been shut down) and the page is filled with pictures of suicide and cutting, including the above picture.
There are also pictures of teenagers with guns in their mouths and one post of a piece of paper that reads, “Why did you try to kill yourself? You told me to be happy.”
The Tumblr has also occasionally featured messages about getting help, so perhaps Paris has been reaching out for a while. She reportedly was angered when Justin Bieber did not say anything about his fans cutting themselves in his name.
Hopefully, Paris will be getting the help that she needs. Family sources tell the site that Paris is “doing better” at the UCLA Medical Center where she current resides, but is fighting therapy. Professionals are reportedly telling the family they need to figure out what triggers her depression and suicidal thoughts.
Paris will eventually move to another treatment center and could be there for up to three months.
