Report: Paris Jackson Left Suicide Note, Cut Arm with Meat Cleaver
New details have emerged regarding Paris Jackson's suicide attempt in the wee hours Wednesday morning. According to TMZ, the 15-year-old wrote a suicide note before cutting her arm with a meat cleaver. She also allegedly consumed a large number of Motrin pills.
A source told the site that Paris, daughter of Michael Jackson and Debbie Rowe, called a suicide hotline and the person on the receiving end decided to call 911. Jackson received stitches and is supposedly on a 72-hour psychiatric hold, known as a 5150.
After the incident, Perry Sanders, attorney for guardian Katherine Jackson, told “Extra” in a statement, "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. Paris is physically fine and is getting appropriate medical attention. Please respect her privacy and the family's privacy."
Jackson's mother's attorney also released a statement, saying, “We appreciate everyone's thoughts for Paris at this time and their respect for the family's privacy.”
Paris had tweeted a series of depressing lyrics just prior to the alleged suicide attempt. One set was from Zee Avi's “Concrete Wall,” which included, “you say i need therapy, well, my darling, so do you. don't need for you to tell me what is wrong in all i say or do.”
