Suicide Attempt or Cry for Help? MJ's Teen Daughter's Public Struggle
Fox and Friends updated us on the condition of Michael Jackson's 15-year-old daughter Paris, who is still alive this morning after what sources are calling a gruesome suicide attempt Wednesday night. The teen is said to be recovering in the hospital today after trying to take her own life by overdosing on Motrin pills and cutting herself with a meat cleaver.
Paris apparently called a suicide hotline and then left a note before overdosing, TMZ reported. L.A. cops say the intent of the late pop star's daughter was not to kill herself, however, but was a cry for help.
Twenty-four hours before the incident, she posted a makeup tutorial on YouTube, seen in the clip above, and had also tweeted out melancholy Beatles lyrics.
The Jackson family released a brief statement, saying that "being a sensitive 15-year-old is difficult no matter who you are," and adding that "physically" Paris is fine. You can hear the full statement in the above segment.
