Paris Jackson to Seek Long-Term Mental Health Treatment

by at . Comments

A source close to Paris Jackson's family says that the troubled teenager may be headed to a longer-term treatment center out of state soon.

Paris will stay "at least another week" at UCLA Medical Center in L.A. and then she'll be going to a facility for additional care," the source says.

The move comes after a great deal of discussion within the family of Michael Jackson's daughter about how best to care for Paris going forward.

The teen, who has a recent history of mental health issues that include cutting, was hospitalized June 5 for taking pills and slicing herself with a knife.

"This has just been so hard for Mrs. Jackson," says the source of grandmother Katherine Jackson, who has legal co-guardianship of Paris.

"She is so [worried about Paris Jackson] and keeps saying she's never had any experience of how to deal with someone in this situation."

The decision to move Paris to a longer-term treatment center was made by Katherine, Paris' biological mother Debbie Rowe, and doctors.

It is in part based on Katherine and Debbie's joint fears that Paris had "fallen in with the wrong crowd" in Los Angeles, says the source.

The facility will include both school and therapy, at a location where the entire family believes she will have sufficient time and space to heal.

Get well soon, Paris.

Paris remained in the hospital on June 16, when her siblings Prince, 16, and Blanket, 11, attended the wedding of their cousin Taj Jackson.

"They were having a blast and dancing," says the source. "But Katherine seemed sad and thoughtful. Her mind is very much on Paris."

Paris Jackson and Prince need real guidance. My heart goes out to them, last year they were manipulated to pose with French scam-artist Julian Rouas to promote the illegal Jackson Tribute Fragrances (dis) honoring their dad. Bravado won the court case against Rouas and the Jacksons, but they still continue to sell these infamous perfumes as (Joe) Jackson perfumes... Read the shocking details and see the sickening pics...

The only "wrong crowd" Paris Jackson fell into was "The Jacksons":
her birth family.
I suspect a bad report is coming about "The Jacksons" from the
court investigator and the Department of Children's and Family Services. Be STRONG Paris. Get Better Soon.
I send to you love and prayers. Your father and a host of Angles
are watching over you.
