Paris Jackson has checked into a treatment facility to seek professional help regarding her “physical and emotional health”, it has been reported.
The actor, model, and singer – who is the daughter of the late Michael Jackson – has taken time off to focus on her wellness after a busy working year.
A source told Metro: “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 prioritise her physical and emotional health.
“She checked herself into a treatment facility to aid in her wellness plan and is looking forward to coming out of this revitalised and ready to tackle the exciting new projects that await her.”
Last summer, Jackson squashed rumours that Demi Lovato’s overdose had triggered her own mental health issues. “I haven’t gone back to rehab, or any clinic,” she said in response to the reports. “I don’t know who decided to make this bullshit up for clickbait but it’s annoying!
“I don’t need a celebrity’s misfortune to make me healthy. I’ve had enough friends OD to send me that message.”
Jackson was hospitalised due to depression and anxiety in 2013. Last year, she denied reports that she had checked into rehab due to a ‘mental breakdown’.
“i just got yelled at in a really mean way outside the tom ford show because paparazzi didn’t get a chance to shoot my face,” she wrote, explaining that the photographers wouldn’t get paid if her face wasn’t in the photos.
She said they had shouted at her: “Michael would have never done that! ugh!!!” “he did,” she countered. “a lot lol. does no one remember the hundreds of unique disguises he came up with all the time? the fuck.”
