The 15-year-old, hospitalized since a reported suicide attempt on June 5, reached out to her fans over the weekend via momDebbie Rowe, who has been visiting her daughter regularly.
“My daughter has asked that I extend a huge thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers and support,” Rowe tweeted Saturday. “She is strong like her father.”
Michael Jackson died in 2009, after which Paris and her brothers, Prince and Blanket, went to live with their grandmother,Katherine Jackson. Paris had recently rekindled a relationship with Rowe, her and Prince’s biological mother, leading to what we’ve been told was a rift between the two siblings.
Sources close to the family have said that Paris had been battling depression for some time before an alleged overdose landed her under a doctor’s care.
But the teen is doing increasingly better, according to those close to her.
“She’s doing wonderful right now,” her uncle Jackie Jackson told on Saturday at the opening of Michael Jackson ONE, the new Cirque du Soleil show at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. “She’s getting better. She should be out soon.”
Added uncle Marlon Jackson: “We wish her a speedy recovery. We love her. After all that she’s gone through, losing a father—that’s hard on a youngster. So she’s staying strong.”
