Paris Jackson is reportedly back at home and resting amid allegations that she attempted to kill herself over the weekend, People reports.
On Saturday, TMZ reported that the 20-year-old, who is Michael Jackson’s daughter, had been hospitalized for a suicide attempt.
That report is consistent with information from the Los Angeles Police Department. A public information officer with the LAPD told People that police responded to the 7200 block of Hillside shortly before 7:30 a.m. Saturday for an attempted suicide and brought someone to a hospital.
“At about 7:28 a.m., officers responded to the 7200 block of Hillside for an ambulance attempt suicide. The victim was transported to a local hospital,” Tony Im, a public information officer, said.
But statements by Paris and others appears to contest the report. However, TMZ later reported that a source close to Paris said she was contesting the assumption that the suicide attempt happened because of sexual assault allegations raised against Michael Jackson in the recently-released controversial documentary, “Leaving Neverland.”
As CrimeOnline previously reported, Shortly after TMZ published their report on her alleged suicide, Paris took to Twitter on late Saturday afternoon and called the outlet “fu***** liars.”
fuck you you fucking liars

Paris also tweeted, “lies lies lies omg and more lies” in response to a now-deleted tweet from Bethenny Frankel about TMZ’s report of the alleged suicide attempt.
Whatever happened, it came hours after Paris responded to users on Twitter who criticized her for not defending her late father from sexual abuse allegations, which have resurfaced in a new HBO documentary.
Paris said defending her father was “not her role,” although in one tweet she appeared to refer to the film as “tabloids and lies.” She also praised cousin Taj Jackson for coming to her father’s defense, in which he called the documentary a “one-sided hit job.”
“there’s nothing i can say that hasn’t already been said in regards to defense. taj is doing a perfect job on his own,” Paris tweeted. “and i support him. but that’s not my role.”
She added, “i’m just tryna get everyone to chill out and go with the flow, be mellow and think about the bigger picture. that’s me.”
Paris has not seen the documentary, a source told People.
In a separate tweet, Paris wrote, “I know injustices are frustrating and it’s easy to get worked up. but reacting with a calm mind usually is more logical than acting out of rage and also…. it feels better to mellow out.”
Michael Jackson’s estate has denied the allegations in the documentary, called “Leaving Neverland.” It premiered in January at the Sundance Film Festival.
