Paris Jackson strongly denied a report that she attempted suicide on March 16 in a series of tweets. She called an outlet ‘liars,’ following the reported story.
Update: A source tells HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY, “Paris had an incident this morning that required medical treatment. She is currently resting at home and doing fine. Any reports of a 5150 hold/suicide attempt are simply untrue.”
Original: Michael Jackson’s daughter, Paris Jackson, 20, shot down a report that she attempted suicide and was hospitalized on March 16 after serious backlash against her father, following the release of HBO’s documentary, Leaving Neverland. Paris tweeted out, “f*** you you f****** liars,” at TMZ, after the online outlet reported that she had tried to kill herself earlier that day. She also tweeted a string of question marks with a sad face emoji.
TMZ alleged that the suicide attempt was a result of Paris being so disturbed by the fallout from the Leaving Neverland documentary, which aired as two parts on March 3 and March 4. In the TMZ story, the outlet claimed law enforcement sources said that police and EMT were called to Paris’ home and that she was subsequently hospitalized and placed on a 5150 hold to prevent her from leaving. However, the media outlet said that she was now in stable condition.
In her tweets, Paris very clearly denied the suicide attempt. She has also publicly stood by her father who in the past she has described as “the best father.” The HBO documentary was filled with detailed accounts by Australian dancer and choreographer Wade Robson, 36, and child actor James Safechuck, 40, who alleged that they were molested multiple times by Michael as children.

Paris spoke out against the documentary and tweeted that she’s “defending [Michael] in [her] own way,” and has also urged followers on Twitter to “think about the bigger picture” after seeing the documentary.
