Paris Jackson: What Led to Suicide Attempt

Yesterday, Paris Jackson was rushed to a hospital near her Calabasas home after attempting to take her life by cutting her right arm, allegedly with a meat cleaver and ingesting 20 Motrin.

Those are the sad details that emerged following the suicide attempt, which apparently wasn’t her first, but ultimately, in a statement sent to Hollyscoop by the Jackson family's attorney, Paris is now “physically fine.”

How she is “emotionally,” is a much more complicated topic; the fact that the Jackson’s attorney left it out of their statement was no accident.

Here’s what some reports are speculating at this time:

Cyber Bullying: In a sit-down interview with Oprah Winfrey last year, Paris opened up about being bullied by classmates. (She attends the elite Buckley School, whose alums include Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian.)

“[Bullying happens] at school and some people try to cyber bully me,” Paris said then. “They try to get to me with words, but that doesn’t really work.”

Even amongst the negativity, Paris did have a seemingly close group of friends, who expressed their sorrow over yesterday's news.

Boy Troubles: In February, Paris tweeted, “Here’s to teenage romances and never knowing why they hurt like hell,” which the Daily Mail is interpreting as teen angst over a boy.

Marilyn Manson Concert: Hours before the incident, Paris tweeted, “that conversation escalated quickly” and now sources are saying that it may be related to not being allowed to go to a Marilyn Manson concert, happening today at the Gibson Amphitheatre.

Cry For Help: Law enforcement officials told TMZ, based on information gathered by the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department “she wanted attention.” That she called a suicide hotline prior to her attempt indicates that “she wanted to be saved.”

Whatever the reason, we hope Paris gets the emotional support she needs to get through this trying time.
