So this happened. ET Online reports:

Debbie Rowe has confirmed exclusively to Entertainment Tonight that Paris Jackson tried to commit suicide and is currently in a Los Angeles hospital.
She was rushed to the hospital with cuts on her wrist in the early morning hours. Rowe tells ET that Jackson has had “a lot going on [lately].”

Normally this is the part where everyone makes some sort of snarky remark about suicide being a selfish act, blah blah blah, but in this case, we should probably shut the hell up because I don’t know how a still-developing teenage mind even begins to reconcile this world after being raised by Michael Jackson. Christ, she saw the man die during his daily anesthesia binge and God knows what else. If Paris Jackson‘s life was a poker hand, it’d be three Uno cards and a dead monkey. Hang in there, kid.

    Poor kid. Din’t ask to born in a circus, and now she’s going to spend her entire life chased by paparazzi.

    • Parker

      I think it’s finally dawning on her that he’s not her biological father. He’s not a biological father to any of them.

  2. Brought It

    Well played.

  4. Poor kid. Hope she gets better and realizes what a waste it would’ve been had she succeeded.

    People who try to kill themselves don’t really want to die; they just want the pain to stop. It’s hard being a teenager, and her circumstances are very difficult, indeed, with her father dead and so much turmoil going on in her life.

    And it must be hard to know that she was the kid least likely to be molested.

  6. It’s messed up. Probably the entire rest of her family is almost as batshit insane as MJ. The only bright spot is there is enough money there that if the right people get hired she can be shielded from some of the crap coming her way. But she has to hire the right people or she’s doomed…

    • Amanda

      Hopefully her family won’t steal that money first.

    • EricLR

      No the money is the heart of the problem. That kind of money only attracts assorted leeches, con-men, hangers-on, and (worst of all) lawyers. If it were a moderate amount, she could use it for college and maybe lead a normal life. But when it gets into the millions, forget it. She’s already besieged from all sides, and will be until they suck her dry. And the bad thing is that her own family is the worst of it.

  7. Amanda

    i”m actually kind of suprised the poor kid lasted this long.

  8. Bob

    So according to ET she cut her wrists and overdosed? Sounds like legit reporting, I believe all of it.

    You know, I gotta say, as weird as Michael looked, he made a damn fine…::googles “paris jackson age”…upstanding citizen.

    • Personally, I question the genetics at work…I highly doubt she’s Michael’s biological child whatever they might have claimed.

  10. JC

    That poor kid would have been better off being raised by the aforementioned Uno cards and dead monkey. (Assuming that the parents had any interaction with her at all, other than the occasional balcony-dangling.)

  11. Not relevant, but...

    First of all, she wasn’t “raised” by Michael Jackson, nor does she have any of his DNA. Jackson’s dermatologist is the sperm donor. The same is true for Jackson’s other kids.

    I understand this famous people attempting suicide. It’s never easy to be filthy rich. Having money to do anything you want is very hard to deal with.

    • Grass, other side, greener, etc.

    • It’s almost as if being raised in a poor environment having to deal with all manner of insanity outweighs being rich. But that couldn’t possibly be the case, as everyone knows that money always fixes everything, and no rich person has ever had any sort of trauma or mental illness to deal with… /snark

    Not to be insensitive, but from this angle and distance, she looks like Jared Leto

  14. And you wonder why? E.T Online reports this, an entertainment website? No parents at all, rival relatives licking your Ass due to your father’s fortune, 24/7 media attention. Siblings called “Blanket”?
    If she’s MJ daughter , it was IVF as the mother was an Australian nurse. Peace Paris

  15. Could have posted some snappy joke comment about this but didn’t, well played Sup, well played x

  16. EricLR

    I think a press release would be more appropriate if she DIDN’T attempt suicide, end up on hard drugs, drop a sex tape with Joe Francis, and burn through about 5 marriages before age 30.

  17. Oh Fish, I love when you prove you’re a human. Makes my heart go pitter pat. Well done.

  18. I hope she can find a sense of normalcy and enjoy life as everyone else has the opportunity.

  19. Dick Hell

    In their defense this is probably the only time the Jackson clan has driven a kid nuts. Oh, wait…

  20. Little Tongue

    I am so sorry to hear that… She seems like a cool kid… And she’s really pretty!

  21. Jarrod

    So she finally Googled “Michael Jackson?”

  22. FlyingMonkeys

    Well done, Fish.

  23. Freebie

    She’ll never find peace with the Jackson clan. She should use some of her money to get as far away from them as possible, and try very hard to live a normal life. Stories like this lessen any desire I want to be rich and famous. Glad to see there really aren’t any snarky responses to this.

  24. Stay classy, Fish. Nicely done.

  25. I think I saw an interview of her once, she seemed really sweet and well put together. Hope she gets better.

    If you look at the inside of her left arm, doesn’t that look like cutting scars? Or is it a tattoo?

    Ugh, this is depressing all around. But Fish is right, what freaking chance does this kid have being raised by her self-loathing-gay-pedophilic father and then by her let-joe-jackson-beat-the-shit-out-of-kids-while-she-watched grandmother. All she has going for her is her health and the money, so that’s more than a lot of kids. But goddamn that is a lot of damage to deal with!
    I know he was her mom, but I can’t think of a worse person to raise these kids than their grandmother. Don’t we have enough proof that she sucks as a parent from the first dozen kids she raised? Are you fucking kidding me with this shit?

  29. BSName

    At that age, in that situation. I probably would have done the same thing. We can only hope that she will grow out of the BS world she was born in.

  30. I hope she realizes it was a mistake, decides to give life a try once again, gets through whatever’s eating at her and lives a happy life. There’s got to be something worth holding onto. It would be such a waste to see you go before you had the chance to experience what life has to offer.

  31. Hugh Evers

    Way to go fish – you humanitarian – for not taking a broadside shot at a troubled teen girl. This is Jesus turning the other cheek type moment only bigger because of the Internet.

  32. Being from this dysfunctional family is likely the reason, and being in the spotlight so young isn’t helping. I hope that she pulls through this okay, finds a good therapist and wises up to get away from her family asap.

  33. Jenn

    Michael never had the stones to act out like this kid does. I’m pretty sure this proves he didn’t beat the hell out of the like Joe did Michael and the rest. I’m certainly not defending him, (pedo) but still, I’m hoping that a childhood free of beatings will stand this girl in good stead and she and her 2 brothers, Blanket and Pillow,may grow up better off than the previous gen. of Jackson’s.

  34. grobpilot

    Holy shit! I thought it said “Paris Hilton” at first and got a boner.

  35. michael jackson was never a fucking parents
    he was a drug addicted lunatic – even before the drugs
    fuck michael

    and look at what he left behind by his disgusting selfish behavior
    now his “children” (LOL) will reap the consequences

    id wanna off myself too if my dad was a pedophile and put himself into a coma

    Paris is so stupid ’cause many people don’t have the money that she has and they try to do their best with their lives ;)

    • She’s NOT stupid, Stupid. She has mental/emotional issues. There’s a difference. You can read up on this sort of thing in…oops! Sorry. I didn’t mean to be offensive.

  37. She’s as pretty as can be, and richer than all of us combined. I hope she gets her shit together and lives a long, happy, healthy life.

    I also hope she realizes what a sweet fellow I am and sends me a check for a hundred grand or so. Hmmm…probably not very likely.

  38. tuliplady

    How sad. It’s very hard to deal with a strong family that builds a wall against your every desire, especially when you count on the for your survival. Hope that MJ left them the means necessary to give what is legally theirs. Their biggest hope was probably Janet – hope she stays a while longer…

    paris, you are so beautiful to look at, yet so suicidal like broke at her age, you’ve got to be related.
