TMZ, in its report, claimed Paris's suicide attempt was linked to allegations of child sex abuse against her late father. The report also said that Paris was placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold, which refers to being held without one's will for upto 72 hours in a psychiatric hospital.

A few minutes later People claimed that Paris had in fact been hospitalized on Saturday but because she had an accident that required medical treatment. “She is currently resting at home and doing fine,” a source told People.
Earlier this week, Paris had addressed 'Leaving Neverland' for the first time, tweeting that there isn’t much else she can say about the controversy.
"There’s nothing I can say that hasn’t already been said in regards to defense," she said in response to a user’s inquiry. "That’s not my role. I’m just tryna get everyone to chill out and go with the flow, be mellow and think about the bigger picture. That’s me."
The four-hour long documentary, which was released on HBO recently, features disturbing allegations from Wade Robson and James Safechuck against Michael Jackson narrating graphic stories on how the King of Pop enticed them to indulge in oral sex and hardcore porn when they were just kids.
