Paris Jackson: Refusing Family's Pleas to Enter Rehab

by at .

In the weeks since Leaving Neverland debuted in HBO, the child molestation case against pop icon Michael Jackson has been relitigated by fans and critics all over the world.

And it seems the raging debate about Jackson's alleged crimes has been especially difficult on his only daughter, Paris Jackson.

Paris does not believe her father's accusers and has reportedly refused to watch the documentary that centers around two of his most famous accusers.

Even so, the growing mountain of evidence pointing to Michael's guilt is understandably taking quite a toll on Paris these days.

On Saturday, Paris reportedly attempted suicide and was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital.

The 20-year-old denies the reports, but numerous media outlets claim to have confirmed that Jackson slit both her wrists and required immediate treatment.

News of the hospitalization comes on the heels of reports that Paris has been drinking heavily, using drugs, and fighting with her boyfriend on a daily basis.

Paris checked into rehab in January and has battled substance abuse and emotional issues throughout her life.

But according to a new report from TMZ, Paris does not believe that rehab is the answer this time, and despite pleas from her concerned family, she has refused futher treatment.

The aspiring singer was placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold on Saturday, but apparently it wasn't hard for her to leave medical care.

A team of her lawyers showed up to the hospital and informed doctors that they would be transporting Paris to UCLA Medical Center.

Paris was released under their supervision, but she never wound up at UCLA.

And it seems that under the terms of the 5150 hold, Paris' family cannot force her to check into rehab.

Paris will turn 21 next month, and as far as the court is concerned, she's a full-fledged adult.

Despite the recent self-harm, Paris is apparently not considered a threat to herself, and therefore, she cannot be held against her will.

Here's hoping the troubled 20-year-old is able to find the sort of help she needs in the very near future.

Regardless of your feelings toward her father, surely everyone can agree that Paris does not deserve to suffer for his sins.
