Medics attended Paris Jackson’s Hollywood home this morning on an attempted suicide call, LA police have confirmed – despite the star denying she had tried to take her own life.
‘At about 7:28 a.m. officers responded to the 7200 block of Hillside for an ambulance attempted suicide. The victim was transported to a local hospital,’ a spokesperson for the department told DailyMail.com.
Reports that the model had slashed her wrists in the wake of the Leaving Neverland documentary were strenuously denied this morning by Paris.
TMZ had said family sources claimed the attempt was linked to the allegations that her father Michael was a prolific pedophile who used his star to sexually abuse minors.
But Paris tweeted a series of eyeroll emojis following the reports. She later added: ‘lies lies lies omg and more lies’ and a series of question marks.

Pictures emerged of Paris following her hospitalization carrying cigarettes and what appeared to be an e-cigarette device. The star appeared sombre and wore a long sleeve jacket which covered her wrists, with the slogan ‘Puppies and I’m Fine’ on the rear.

In a series of Twitter posts on Thursday the sometimes model and heiress responded to an individual who wrote that she believed recent unfavorable press coverage was all a ploy to get Jackson to comment on these latest allegations.
‘[T]here’s nothing I can say that hasn’t already been said in regards to defense. Michael Jackson’s [nephew] Taj is doing a perfect job on his own. And I support him,’ said Jackson.
‘[B]ut 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.’

Accusers: The men took time to address their critics and naysayers after the screening, while making it clear they were not paid in any way for their participation in the film (from left: James Safechuck and Wade Robson)
The film focuses on the accounts of Wade Robson and James Safechuck, pictured as a child with Jackson, who have long claimed that they were raped and molested by the singer
In the Leaving Neverland documentary, alleged victims Wade Robson and James Safechuck both men go into graphic and specific detail about what allegedly happened in Jackson’s bedroom when they were just children, with both men claiming they were abused from approximately the age of 7 until they were 14.
Jackson and her two brothers Prince and Blanket inherited half of Jackson’s $1.5 billion estate upon his death.
The other half went to his mother Katherine Jackson, who was also named the guardian for the children despite the fact that Paris’ mother Debbie Rowe is still alive.
In the event that Katherine could not fulfill that role as guardian, Michael said in his will that Diana Ross would care of his children.
Jackson said on Thursday however that her inheritance is of little importance to her, writing: ‘They say money is what makes the world go ’round.. but money is just energy.. and the reason it’s #1 is because that’s the focus of the collective conciousness. Imagine if we all focused on love instead?? If that was our mutual frequency?? yooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.’
That was posted in the wake of Jackson’s mid-week trip down to New Orleans.
Leaving Neverland details allegations by Wade Robson and James Safechuck that the pop singer repeatedly molested them at his Neverland Rang when they were children.
Its director Dan Reed said he hoped the allegations will shift opinions on Jackson and has asked fans to ‘re-evaluate the way we see the singer’.
Paris commented Thursday on her decision to not speak out about allegations that her father Michael sexually abused minors (Jackson out on LA last month at the Vanity Fair Oscar party)
Reed has been both praised and criticised for the film, with masses of intrigued fans met by protesters at cinemas across the globe.
Defenders of the singer have also fiercely lashed out at the documentary online, calling it a ‘mockumentary’.
Jackson adamantly maintained he never harmed children. His family has called the documentary and news coverage of the accusations a ‘public lynching’, asserting he was ‘100 percent innocent’.
His estate has called the documentary a ‘rehash of dated and discredited allegations’.
