Paris Jackson’s guardianship intact for now

Paris Jackson

Paris Jackson’s biological mother Debbie Rowe supports the family court judge’s decision to keep the teenager with the Jackson family, but will take over guardianship if necessary.

The troubled teenager is currently under the joint guardianship of her cousin TJ and grandmother Katherine Jackson.

Debbie is reportedly “very happy” with the care Paris is under, but if her daughter’s health deteriorates further she is prepared to step in and file legal documents to obtain guardianship, according to TMZ.

The 15-year-old daughter of late singer Michael Jackson was admitted to hospital after attempting suicide earlier this month.

Soon after she tried taking her life by cutting herself and ingesting around 20 Ibuprofen pills, family court Judge Mitchell Beckloff ordered an investigation into her welfare.

The family court magistrate has now decided to allow Paris to remain in TJ and Katherine’s care after a report was delivered clearing them of creating an unsafe environment.

Paris and her biological mother Debbie Rowe have grown a strong bond recently.

According to the website, Debbie “believes TJ is doing a great job as guardian, despite the fact that Paris does not want a man to replace Michael Jackson and tell her what to do”.

Debbie reportedly also thinks Katherine is doing “a good job” despite her age and health.

Apparently matriarch Katherine, 83, has been struggling to deal with her granddaughter’s fragile mental state.

"This has been so hard for Mrs. Jackson," a source told People magazine recently. "She keeps saying she's never had any experience of how to deal with someone in this situation."
