Paris Jackson's Playful Makeup Video Posted One Week Before Reported Suicide Attempt
Paris Jackson, the daughter of late singer Michael Jackson, was rushed to the hospital on Wednesday morning, and now more details are emerging pertaining to the reported suicide attempt and the 15-year-old’s life. One glimpse into the surviving Jackson child's life is a makeup video that was uploaded to YouTube on May 31.
The 20-minute video shows Jackson in what she says is her bedroom doing a quirky makeup tutorial in which she shares random factoids about herself. For instance, she reveals that in the last year she’s watched animated film Tangled “like three times a week.” She also admits that as a child she had a fantasy of marrying a cowboy and having cowboy children.
After the video was posted to YouTube, Jackson took to Twitter to state that she didn’t know how the video ended up on YouTube and to say, "I hope you guys liked it tho and didn't think i'm too crazy," she wrote. "i get weird when i'm not around people lol." During the video, in addition to putting on a face of makeup, she makes silly faces, talks in goofy voices and even plays some air guitar. It’s a rare look inside the famous star’s child's life that shows her goofing around much like your average teenager.
Since yesterday, multiple reports have emerged about what precipitated Jackson’s early morning ambulance ride to the hospital. She allegedly called a suicide hotline and left a suicide note before taking a number of Motrin pills and then cutting herself with a meat cleaver, reported TMZ. A similar report from People stated that Jackson “cut her wrists with a kitchen knife and took as many as 20 ibuprofen tablets.”
Prince Jackson, Paris’s brother, has reportedly canceled a TV appearance to be with his sister. Jackson’s aunt, La Toya Jackson, told ET that the family is asking for privacy as Jackson continues to recover and the family deals with the matters at hand.
