To some this will be a savage indictment of her upbringing and the bizarre circumstances of her birth. To others this will be an absolute non story about an attention seeking teenager. Either way – Paris Jackson, Michael Jackson’s daughter was rushed to hospital yesterday after what is being described as a "possible suicide attempt."

It is still unclear whether the hospitalisation was as a result of an overdose or as a result of an attempt to slit her wrists. A 911 call suggests it may have been both with Paris taking 20 Motrin and cutting herself with a kitchen knife. Paris’s mother,Debbie Rowe, who by all accounts has rekindled her relationship with the young teenager of late after losing custody to the Jackson family, did what any mother would do in such a situation. She spoke to Entertainment Tonight.

Rowe told Entertainment Tonight that Jackson has had "a lot going on lately." However – in a piece of information that will do the teen’s credibility no good at all, a ‘source close to the family’ told the TV programme that the reason behind the attempt was because she wasn't allowed to go to a Marilyn Manson concert. Whether that is wholly true, partly true or a vicious slander remains to be seen, but it certainly would chime with public cynicism.

Her Twitter feed suggests a wider pattern of depression, with a recent tweet quoting the Beatles; "Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away now it looks as though they're here to stay." How can a teenager brought up in that environment not be confused quite frankly.

Katharine Jackson released a statement saying

"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."
