Paris Jackson reportedly attempted suicide because she feels alone and unloved without her late father Michael Jackson there to comfort her.
Paris Jackson reportedly “doesn’t feel loved” without her father around.
The 15-year-old daughter of late singer Michael Jackson was hospitalised early Wednesday morning after attempting suicide.
Apparently the teenager has been suffering from an overwhelming sense of loneliness since Michael passed away from acute propofol intoxication on June 25 2009.
“Paris has been very, very depressed for a while. She’s been throwing fits and tantrums, kicking and screaming and cutting herself,” a source told People magazine.
“She misses her father greatly. She was the centre of Michael’s world and it’s all different now. She says that she is lonely and that she doesn’t feel loved.”
According to the publication, Paris used a kitchen knife to cut her wrists and swallowed up to 20 ibuprofen pills.
Although she is now physically stable in a Southern California hospital, it is said many of her loved ones are incredibly concerned about how she will fare emotionally in the future.
“Some of this is normal teenager things, hormonal changes. But now it’s serious,” the source detailed. “Paris has said that there is something missing in her life. This is a cry for help.”
Recently Paris has struck up a relationship with her estranged mother Debbie Rowe.
Despite her new-found connection to Debbie, Paris reportedly still feels a major emotional void.
“Paris is very unhappy and alone. She’s living in this place and there’s security and uncles and all these hangers-on. And she’s alone,” a second insider revealed.
“That’s one of the reasons she reached out to Debbie Rowe – she wants a family, she’s missed her dad."
Michael’s mother, Katherine Jackson, has been co-guardian of the teen and her two brothers since the pop star’s 2009 death.
She told Radar Online Wednesday afternoon Paris is “fine and getting appropriate medical attention”.
“Being a sensitive 15-year-old is difficult no matter who you are,” reads a statement from the matriarch. “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.”
