Just over 24 hours since Paris Jackson’s suicide attempt, the media is learning more about what may have driven her to such a dark place.
Us Weekly, after speaking to multiple sources, reported that the 15-year-old was battling “major depression.” One insider revealed that it was caused by some “major fights” she’d had recently with her older brother Prince Jackson.
At the center of their fights? Their biological mother Debbie Rowe, allegedly. Paris has been reconnecting with her mother in recent years and working on their estranged relationship, which Prince didn’t approve of, a source tells the magazine.
“[Paris and Prince] were always so insanely close until Debbie came back in the picture, and Paris wanted to get close with her,” the insider said. “Paris wanted her mom in her life, but Paris was younger and Prince remembers all of the awful things Michael told them about Debbie. Prince feels Paris is betraying their father by getting close to Debbie.”
Paris has been seen frequently with Debbie at her horse ranch in Palmdale, California. According to the source, Paris made the decision on her own to get to know her mom and “found she really liked her.” Debbie also shares stories about her dad Michael Jackson with Paris, which she loves.
