Paris Jackson's mom and grandmom desperate to send her to rehab as they fear she's headed for a 'meltdown'
They have all planned an intervention so that they can get a clear picture of what she is going through and what would be the best way forward for Paris to lead a normal life again
Grandmother Katherine Jackson and mother Debbie Rowe are extremely worried about Paris Jackson. It's been just one day after Paris posed for a topless photo shoot for the first time ever, and the Jackson family is planning to hold an intervention of sorts for her, it has been revealed.
According to a new report by Radar Online, Paris' family is extremely worried that the young girl is headed for a downward spiral ever since her topless shoot came out, and they have all planned for an intervention so that they can get a clearer picture of what she is going through and what would be the best way forward for Paris to be able to get back to a normal, healthy lifestyle.
A lot of fans of the 20-year-old would know that she recently posed for new campaign photos for G.H. Bass & Co.’s footwear in a topless shoot, which has apparently sent her family into a tizzy. “The family is outraged over this and Paris is absolutely causing Katherine a lot of heartaches right now,” dished an insider.
Previously in June, the Gringo actress posted a topless picture of herself on her social media account, raising awareness for HIV/AIDS testing through a new Life Ball advert. The picture shows the 20-year-old wearing a pair of unbuttoned jeans and her loose hair let down. In addition to all the tattoos that the socialite already has inked on her body, the topless picture shows words like 'resistance', 'survivor' and 'accept' written in black all over her upper body. In addition to the nude picture, Paris also posted a video for the ad campaign. In her ad, the millionaire daughter of late Michael Jackson said to the camera, "I am, I give, and I refuse to accept love but I am a warrior. I know my story. I know my status."
The concern for Paris and her current way of living resurfaced after her grandfather and the Jackson family patriarch Joe Jackson passed away last month after battling with cancer. As reports suggest, Paris was, at the time, feuding with her family over her grandpa's funeral, in turn, causing a rift within the clan.
“She divided the family with the death of Joe and things have not gotten any better,” said the informant. “Paris is drinking and is using marijuana and the Jacksons do not know how to control her.” And her bad behavior was resulting in a huge rift forming within the clan.
“Katherine is blaming herself for not being there for Paris as much as she should be but right now no one can lock Paris down.” Apparently, the brunette beauty was causing so much trouble and acting so “dangerously” that Katherine and Debbie were ready to get her some professional help by staging an intervention and sending her to rehab.
However, things took a turn when the duo confronted Paris about the situation, with Paris leaving them after insisting that she doesn’t have a problem. Multiple sources revealed that Katherine had spoken to Paris earlier this week when she came to pick up something from their Calabasas home.
“Katherine wanted to clear the air because she hasn’t been able to sleep,” revealed the insider, adding that when Paris came home to pick up some of her things, she had a joint in her hand, a little pet snake around her arm and she “smelled like alcohol.” The young girl came into the house while a group of her rowdy friends waited in the car for her.
“She was stumbling a bit, clearly high or drunk,” according to the source. “Katherine is scared for her because Paris is not meeting with her psychologist and is acting up again.”
Prior to this topless shoot of hers sparking worry in the family, Paris had posted a video of herself on Instagram walking along the edge of a skyscraper. The video was captioned:"I almost died." That was enough for the family to surmise that "she had lost it". They also alleged that Paris may be headed towards a serious meltdown and the fact that Paris has a history of self-harming, including three attempts at suicide, does not put the minds of her family members at ease.
But Paris did not take too kindly to her family's display of concern and wrote. “So apparently people think I’m about to die,” she said, referencing the report. “My therapist texted me about it laughing though, so that’s good. So I guess to the family members that are talking to all of these news outlets saying they’re worried for me: When is the last time you called me?”
Paris made it clear that if someone is really worried about anyone's well-being, they would contact them directly, something which her family had reportedly not done in a long time. “Prince isn’t worried. Why?” she continued. “Because we talk all the time. We hang out. If you’re worried about me, call me."
