In the year or so since Paris Jackson began dating Gabriel Glenn, the 21-year-old model has experienced more ups and downs than some folks see in a lifetime.
Much of the tumult had to do with the release of the Michaek Jackson documentary Leaving Neverland, which contained shocking new evidence linked to the pop legend's alleged sex crimes.
On social media, Paris defended her father and dismissed the charges against him in a fashion that many found callous or inappropriate.
Insiders worried that Paris was headed for an overdose, a meltdown, or some other personal tragedy.
Things seem to have stabilized for Jackson these days, and Glenn -- who stood by her side throughout -- seems to have had a stabilizing influence.
Often, tough times test our bonds and bring us closer to those we love.
Which might be part of the reason so many are convinced that Paris and Glenn secretly got married sometime in the past few weeks.
Another good reason, of course, is the fact the pair appeared to be sporting matching wedding rings at a recent red carpet event.
Earlier this week, Paris and Glenn attended the premiere of an acclaimed bnew film entitled The Peanut Butter Falcon.
But not surprisingly, their finger bling has been overshadowing the movie in today's press coverage.
Thus far, however, the media's best efforts to uncover the truth have been in vain.
Insiders say Paris won't even answer her family's questions with regard to whether or not she and Glenn are hitched.
“The family is freaking out,” an insider tells Radar Online.
“She is not answering any of them. No one knows what to think; Paris is a loose cannon.”
Meanwhile, Jackson is still gushing about Glenn on social media -- as she has been for much of the past year.
"Appreciation post for the light of my life, my symphony of a soul, my darling sunflower ... we’re playing footsie in bed right now," she wrote today.
"You really shouldn't have, I don't deserve this post or you but I'm glad you're mine just the same," Glenn replied.
"Wouldn't trade you or our fur family for anything in the world. Love you 3000."
We don't know id Paris and Gabe are married, engaged, or just having fun ... but it certainly sounds like he won't be going away anytime soon.
