Michael Jackson’s only daughter, Paris Jackson, has left the treatment facility where she has been since the summer following her suicide attempt.
She is still going back for checkups, however, according to a cousin.
Following her father’s tragic death and the brutal stress of testifying in his wrongful death lawsuit, Paris Jackson struggled and nearly took her own life.
A cleaver was allegedly used in the brutal suicide attempt.
The California-based Jackson family and Paris' mother, Debbie Rowe, sought immediate help for the teen, 15, at an out-of-state rehab center.
There, she has been receiving help without the intrusion of paparazzi or her family drama. She is not out of the woods yet though. Or even close.
Tanay Jackson, Tito Jackson’s daughter and Paris’ cousin, told the celebrity gossip magazine In Touch that Paris is still maintaining her treatment.
A good thing, too, since she has a long way left to go.
“She’s out, but she still goes back for checkups,” Tanay said of Prince and Blanket’s recovering sister. “Paris’ well-being is extremely important to us.”
The Jackson family seems committed to helping her get better, but it will likely require years of therapy to get her to the better place she needs to be.
Hopefully, she remains surrounded by positive influences and people who will nurture her and instill the best possible values and environment.
