The fallout from Paris Jackson‘s suicide attempt continued Thursday, as her brother Prince Michael Jackson I canceled a appearance on German TV, while a close pal openly vented her sorrow on Twitter.
Prince Michael was scheduled to appear on the network ZDF’s show Wetten, dass …? (Wanna Bet?), but in the wake of his sister’s troubles, he did not make the trip to Europe.
“Under these circumstances, we perfectly understand that Prince Michael prefers to stay close to his family,” ZDF rep Silke Blömer told People. “We wish Paris the strength and the power to recover soon.”
Meanwhile, on Twitter, Paris’ friend Sophie Jastrow took to the social microblog to declare she was ‘so f***in sad right now… [literally] shaking right now…literally i cant even focus.’
As RadarOnline.com reported, the 15-year-old was rushed to a Los Angeles area hospital in the early hours of Wednesday in what paramedics described as a response to a “person who apparently took some kind of medication.
We later learned the suicide attempt did not involve ONLYan overdose (as a 911 dispatcher disclosed), as sources close to the embattled teen say the troubled teenage daughter of late pop star Michael Jackson slashed her wrist because she was emotionally distraught over having to testify in the current wrongful death lawsuit.
Another source told People that “Paris has been very, very depressed for a while. She’s been throwing fits and tantrums, kicking and screaming and cutting herself.”
“She misses her father greatly,” the source told the magazine. “She was the center of Michael’s world and it’s all different now. She says that she is lonely and that she doesn’t feel loved.”
And while Paris did cut her wrist she had also taken 20 Motrin pills, the NY Post and other outlets reported. She was reeling emotionally from issues related to a meeting with her mother Debbie Rowe, as well as a Marilyn Manson concert she wished to attend.
