Paris Jackson has been released from a 72-hour psychiatric hold, after being hospitalized Wednesday after attempting to commit suicide.
Jackson attempted to commit suicide by cutting herself with a kitchen knife and swallowing painkillers. She was placed in a psychiatric facility for observation for 72 hours, and the hold was lifted Saturday when she was transferred to UCLA Medical Center — the same hospital where her father was pronounced dead almost four years ago.
A judge ordered an investigation into Jackson’s well-being Thursday, and her family supported the decision.
Perry Sanders Jr., Katherine Jackson’s attorney, said Friday, “There have been communications between the court and counsel and we’re completely supportive of the court’s actions.”
A similar investigation was ordered last year when Katherine Jackson was out of communication with the family for several days. Jackson had been reported missing, but it was later revealed that she had gone on a planned vacation in Arizona. However, Paris Jackson seemed worried about her grandmother’s sudden disappearance and posted a number of tweets asking for help finding her. In a later tweet, she also condemned the doctor who was caring for the then-82-year-old.
Paris Jackson reportedly attempted to kill herself after she was told she couldn’t go to a Marilyn Manson concert. The day after her suicide attempt, Manson reached out to the 15-year-old and told her that she was welcome at his concerts anytime. He then dedicated the song “Disposable Teens” to her during his concert Thursday night.
Jackson’s suicide attempt won’t stop the teenager from appearing in her first film, Lundon’s Bridge and the Three Keys. The producers have said they will do “anything it takes” to keep Jackson on the project.
“There’s a policy that we will have to buy now that we would not have had to buy prior to the incident,” a source close to the production told TMZ. “We’re prepared to pay a large amount of money for the policy. Fortunately, we have a big budget.”
Jackson won’t be needed for the film until the end of the year, and the producers feel that six months is more than enough time for the teen to recover.
