The 20-year-old daughter of the late Michael Jackson has entered an undisclosed facility to “reboot, realign and prioritize her physical and emotional health,” a source close to Jackson tells ABC News.
“After a busy year of work engagements that took her all over the globe, Paris decided that she needed to take some time off to reboot, realign and prioritize her physical and emotional health,” says the source. “She checked herself into a treatment facility to aid in her wellness plan and is looking forward to coming out of this revitalized and ready to tackle the exciting new projects that await her.”
Just last August, Jackson tweeted a strong denial to rumors she’d entered rehab. “i haven’t gone back to rehab, or to any clinic,” she wrote in part. “idk who decided to make this bull**** up for clickbait but it’s annoying!”
The next day, Jackson tweeted: “it’s like the harder i work and the more successful i get, the more they want to steamroll me and make me out to be a bad person or that i have horrible issues.”
The last time Paris tweeted was December 14. She spent much of 2018 launching her music career and dealing with the death of her grandfather, Joe Jackson, who died in June at age 89.
The year before, Paris told Rolling Stone that she tried to kill herself “multiple times” during her teenage years due to “self-hatred.”
“Low self-esteem, thinking that I couldn’t do anything right, not thinking I was worthy of living anymore,” she said. “I was crazy. I was actually crazy. I was going through a lot of, like, teen angst. And I was also dealing with my depression and my anxiety without any help.”
