Her Family Claims ‘She’s Lost It’ Mentally, But Paris Jackson Says She’s Doing Just Fine

It can’t be easy being Paris Jackson. She lost her famous father, Michael Jackson, died in 2009 at the age of 50, when she was only 11 years old. Since then, she’s lived a curious life while being both sheltered and, at times, overly exposed to the world. But now, her loved ones are speaking out because they’re worried about her.

Of course, Jackson is denying anything is wrong, insisting she’s fine. But her friends and family aren’t so sure.

A look into the life of Paris

Until January 2017, when Jackson gave her first-ever in-depth interview with Rolling Stone, her life remained somewhat of a mystery. But she revealed a lot about her life since her father’s death in that interview, and it wasn’t exactly pleasant. Jackson admitted to three suicide attempts and a lot of self-harm in her teen years. Still, she said she’d since embraced sobriety and found happiness.

According to Page Six, the trouble started in March, when Jackson posted an Instagram video of her walking along the ledge of a skyscraper, momentarily losing her balance before falling into the arms of her rumored girlfriend, model Cara Delevingne. The video, which has since been deleted, was particularly troubling because it also showed Jackson and Delevigne talking loudly and staggering, indicating they weren’t sober.

Has she ‘lost it?’

One of Jackson’s relatives, who remained anonymous, spoke to Page Six about the incident.

“Everyone saw that video, and even though we all knew that she’s now OK, watching it was so traumatic that nobody wants to show it to either Katherine or Joe,” the relative said of Paris’ paternal grandparents. They even compared it to the 2002 incident in which Michael Jackson dangled his infant son, Blanket, over the fourth floor balcony of a hotel … but said this incident was much worse.

March’s controversial Instagram video wasn’t the first alarming incident involving Jackson. In November 2017, she was photographed in France scaling lampposts while chain-smoking and taking selfies in what has been described as a “rundown area,” the Page Six article stated. She was also seen in Australia licking a window and making faces at the paparazzi at the Melbourne Cup horse races.

Jackson recently responded to the rumors via her Instagram stories, and she wants to make one thing clear: She’s fine.

“So apparently people think I’m about to die,” Jackson said. “My therapist texted me about it laughing though, so that’s good.” She also called out the anonymous family members that were talking to the press, asking why they hadn’t called her if they were so worried about her.
