Paris Jackson’s suicide attempt came after she was told she does not have the same biological father as her brother Prince, according to a new report.
The alleged revelation by the Sun (UK) says that she knew Michael Jackson "could not be" her natural dad, yet believed she and Prince had the same one.
Paris Jackson believed Debbie Rowe was their mother and an unnamed man their dad, but if this report is to be believed, she's learned this is untrue.
She was just recently given the news, the Sun reports, to prepare her for harsh grilling during the $40 billion Michael Jackson wrongful death trial.
A major identity crisis followed, along with a string of devastating fights between Paris and Prince, 16, and eventually led to Paris' attempt on her life.
Whatever the reason, Michael's only daughter has plunged into depression and is still in an L.A. hospital. She OD'd on Motrin and cut herself June 5.
A family friend said of the paternity bombshell:
“Paris has always wanted to believe Michael was her dad, but was aware that wasn’t really the case. But she was convinced her and Prince were full siblings."
"She always idolized him. Hearing she wasn’t started a downward spiral.”
She's said to be feeling better but will stay in hospital for up to 30 days. She will then spend more time with mum Debbie, 54, at her ranch in California.
Paris Jackson is said to hate the “circus” that is the Jackson household, but she remains close to her guardian and grandmother, Katherine Jackson.
There have long been reports that Michael Jackson was not the biological father of any of his three children, and a series of men have claimed that role.
The most frequently mentioned name is Dr. Arnold Klein, MJ's doctor and friend, who's even admitted giving the late King of Pop a sperm sample.
Another Jackson friend, Mark Lester, says the same thing, while numerous others - including Macaulay Culkin - have been rumored by the tabloids.
