Since word of Paris Jackson’s suicide attempt hit the web yesterday, a number of fans and celebrities have weighed in on the incident and wished Paris a full mental and physical recovery. Now Paris’ grandmother, Katherine Jackson, the mother of Paris’ late father, Michael Jackson has opened up about the matter, saying that her granddaughter is “fine and getting appropriate medical attention.”
In a new interview with RadarOnline, Mrs. Jackson explains that Paris, like many kids who have lost a parent, is struggling to cope with her heavy loss.
“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,” said Mrs. Jackson.
“Paris is physically fine and is getting appropriate medical attention. Please respect her privacy and the family’s privacy,” Katherine added.
Fans and media sites are still speculating about why Paris tried to take her life but sources claim that the young Jackson is suicidal because of the stress over her late father’s wrongful death case and the fact that she will have to testify in it.
“She’s very upset that she will be called as a witness in her father’s wrongful death trial, in which she is a plaintiff,” the source said.
This is indeed a sad moment for the Jackson family but we hope that Paris will finally accept the psychological help that she needs to cope with all of the mental challenges in her life and learn methods to better deal with all of the stresses of her life in the future.
Luckily, this suicide attempt wasn’t successful and Katherine didn’t lose her granddaughter. But other celebs haven’t been so lucky. Check out some stars who lost family members to suicide below. – nicholas robinson
