Paris Jackson Breaks Down Over Bullying: Online Trolls Push Pop King's Daughter to Suicide Attempt (Video)
Paris Jackson opened up about her recent suicide attempt this week, which she claimed was caused by cyberbullying. The daughter of Michael Jackson and Debbie Rowe spoke in depth about her battle with online vitriol as a frequent target in a series of Instagram videos released Wednesday.
“I don’t understand how there can be so much hatred in the world right now," 18-year-old Jackson said, empathizing with other celebrities such as Justin Bieber's gal pal Sophia Richie, whom Bieber ended up quitting Instagram over.
"I’ve tried sticking up for myself," she continued. "I’ve tried the whole blocking the haters thing, not reading the comments...We got hearts and brains and feelings, and when you say damaging things like that to people, it f--ks ‘em up. And I don’t know if that’s what people want, but it’s exhausting.”
Michael Jackson’s only daughter had taken a two-year hiatus from social media following her last suicide attempt. The videos have since been deleted.
