We heard some awful news earlier this week, and many of us are still shocked and saddened by reports of young Paris Jackson‘s suicide attempt. After it was confirmed that the daughter of the late Michael Jackson was rushed to the hospital with severe cuts in her arm, and having taken a large number of Motrin pills, speculation began to fly as to why she did this. Some sources suggested bullying at school was a factor, but it looks like the general public isn’t along in wanting to know what, exactly, happened. A judge hadnling the guardianship of Jackson‘s three children is now ordering an investigation into the situation. Click inside to learn more.
The Hollywood Reporter has the story:
LOS ANGELES (AP) — An investigation into Paris Jackson’s well-being has been ordered by a judge overseeing the guardianship of Michael Jackson’s three children, court records show.
Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff ordered an investigator to look into Paris Jackson’s health, education and welfare and recommend whether any changes are necessary on Thursday, one day after she was taken by ambulance from her family’s home and hospitalized.
Authorities have said they were dispatched to the home on a report of a possible overdose, but they have not released any additional details.
“There have been communications between the court and counsel, and we’re completely supportive of the court’s actions,” Katherine Jackson’s attorney, Perry Sanders Jr., said Friday.
He has said the 15-year-old is physically fine and receiving appropriate medical treatment. He declined further comment on her health status Friday.
Beckloff issued a similar inquiry into the well-being of Michael Jackson’s three children — Prince, Paris and Blanket — last year after an incident in which Katherine Jackson was out of communication with them for several days. The Jackson family matriarch had been taken by some of her children to a resort in Arizona, prompting an agreement that led to another guardian being temporarily instated.
Tito Jackson’s son, TJ, was appointed co-guardian over the children.
In the midst of all of this, I almost forgot about all the drama that went down last year when Katherine Jackson went missing and it was just creepy and weird and creepy. These poor kids… Sigh. Here’s hoping the courts get some important answers about Paris’s well-being, and that she’s able to get some real help and support.
