Paris Jackson 'felt misunderstood'

Paris Jackson had reportedly been feeling "isolated and alone" in the run up to her alleged suicide attempt.

The 15-year-old was hospitalised earlier this week after taking an overdose of Motrin (Ibuprofen) and allegedly cutting herself with a meat cleaver. She is now recovered and it's been suggesting she actually wanted help, rather than to end her life.

The fourth anniversary of Paris' father, Michael Jackson's, death is fast approaching and it's been reported he was on her mind shortly before the incident.

"Paris feels that no one in her family ‘gets’ her anymore and she feels isolated and alone," a source told British newspaper The Sun.

"During the row on Tuesday night she said her father knew her better than anyone and knew what it was like growing up in the spotlight.”

The young star is rumoured to have told her family she wishes her father was still around because he always understood her.

Unconfirmed reports suggest Paris fought with her loved ones after she was banned from attending a Marilyn Manson concert. The Goth rocker has since sent her his well wishes and publicly declared he will give her VIP access to one of his shows when she has recovered.

Following the argument, Paris was apparently banned from going online and told to stay in her room.

Paris and her brothers Prince and Blanket have been cared for by their grandmother Katherine Jackson since Michael passed away. Katherine is in the process of suing concert promoter AEG Live, which she claims pressured Michael into the shows he was preparing for at the time of his passing.

Paris is thought to be preparing to testify in the case, something she has been concerned about. It's also claimed she has been suffering bullying, with everything culminating earlier this week.

"Paris has been going through hell. We don’t think she wanted to take her life — we feel it was a cry for help," another insider told the publication.

The young girl is currently receiving help at a Los Angeles hospital, where her mother Debbie Rowe and aunt La Toya Jackson went to see her yesterday.

At the moment it remains unclear when she will be allowed home, but sources have suggested she is getting better.

"Paris is doing well, smiling again and can't wait to see her friends," a source told People magazine.
