The eldest child of pop icon Michael Jackson spent time with Paris, 15, on Thursday, a Jackson family source revealed.
The siblings, who had once been “thick as thieves, had a major falling out when Paris began to spend time with their biological mother, Debbie Rowe. Prince disagreed with Paris’ decision to do so and wanted nothing to do with Debbie, which Paris couldn’t understand,” an insider told Radar.
“Paris kept pushing Prince and they drifted apart. As Paris began to spend more time with Debbie, Prince was hanging out with his girlfriend.
“However, all of that changed after Paris’ suicide attempt. Prince stepped up, as he always does and told Paris how much he loves her in a phone call and vowed to help her in the aftermath of the suicide attempt. He visited her on Thursday.”
Paris, said to “emotionally distraught” at the thought of having to testify in her father’s wrongful death suit, slashed her wrist early Wednesday morning and was rushed to the hospital.
Jackson family sources previously told Radar the 15-year-old, who has been battling depression, felt the strained relationship with Prince had weighed on her.
“Paris feels like her old life is slipping away,” the source said.
However, no matter “what Michael Jackson’s children face, they will always stick together. It is how their father raised them, and it’s what he would have wanted. Nothing or no one can break that bond, no matter who may try to do so,” the family source added.
