In the weeks before the release of Leaving Neverland -- the scathing documentary about the Michael Jackson child molestation allegations -- there was a great deal of concern for Michael's daughter, Paris.
Paris checked into rehab just ahead of the film's release, and many jumped to the conclusion that she was struggling the renewed interest in her father's controversial relationships with young children.
Following the initial release of the film -- first at the Sundance Festival, then at HBO -- Paris mostly remained silent on the subject.
In time, however, she made her feelings known -- much to the chagrin of many fans.
We now know that Paris does not believe her father's accusers and has refused to watch Neverland.
Rather than presenting a cogent argument in Michael's defense, however, Paris literally laughed off the accusations at first.
Now, she's demonstrating signs of troubling behavior that have led fans and friends to the conclusion that the seriousness of the situation is beginning to sink in.
Last week, Paris was spotted drinking heavily and engaging in a dramatic fight with her boyfriend, Gabriel Glenn, in the streets of New Orleans.
Her family is said to be deeply concerned, and not only because Paris is a freshly-rehabbed member of Alcoholics Anonymous.
According to Radar Online several members of Paris' family believe that Glenn is a bad influence on the deeply vulnerable Paris, and they're begging her to cut him loose.
“They are really trying to get her to move back into the Jackson family home that Prince lives at,” added the source.
“They are begging her to leave the apartment that she lives in with Gabriel, but no one can really force Paris to do anything that she does not want to do.”
The insider adds that Paris is currently "spending insane amounts of money on her boyfriend."
However, it seems that pressure from both her family and the public has only made Paris more defiant.
Recent criticism over an Instagram Story in which Paris can be seen smoking pot led the 20-year-old to lash out on social media:
“I smoke weed on my story ONE time and all of a sudden i’m a junkie meth alcoholic party raver that’s also secretly married and pregnant and may or may not have a penis,” she said.
"They didn't get the crazy reaction they wanted from the doc, and a chill, mellow reaction doesn't sell stories so why not lie and create a story that does sell? Pathetic," Jackson added.
“She is going to do what she wants to do and still insists that there is not a problem,” a source told Radar of the situation.
At the end of the day, of course, no one knows what's going on in Paris Jackson's head aside from Paris Jackson.
Here's hoping she's receiving whatever kind of support she needs.
