Paris Jackson faces teen trauma tank

By The Sun | July 8th 2013

PARIS Jackson will be moved to a boarding school for troubled teens when she finally checks out of hospital following her suicide bid.

According to The Sun, her mum Debbie Rowe and grandmother Katherine Jackson are determined to ensure that she makes a full recovery.

And they do not think she is anywhere near ready to go home yet.

The pair are also desperate to shield her from the internet and social media, because they are convinced she will have a relapse if she reads cruel taunts about her and her late pop superstar dad Michael.

In an attempt to protect the 15-year-old they will enrol her at the $10million Diamond Ranch Academy in Utah, a treatment centre for struggling children.

The move is temporarily on hold as they are putting a security team in place at the ranch to protect Paris and the other children from any obsessive fans.

Paris will then be transferred from UCLA Hospital in Los Angeles and stay there until she is well enough to go home — probably after her family’s wrongful death lawsuit with music promoters AEG Live is over.

ut the doctors and her family are not taking any chances. She tried to end her own life and it doesn’t get more serious than that.

“She was in a terrible state and her family know it would not take much to tip her over the edge again.

“They are terrified she will have a major relapse if she has access to Twitter and the internet again — especially with all the shocking information that is coming out in the AEG wrongful death court case.

“Debbie and Katherine have looked into things and they have decided the best place for her is the Diamond Ranch Academy. It is a secluded treatment centre for 12 to 18-years-olds that specialises in depression and grief management.

 “While she’s there she can be around kids going through similar problems and concentrate on getting well again, without pressures from the outside world and all the negativity on the internet. The only stumbling block is the security situation.

“They know there will be a lot of attention on Paris while she’s in residence and there’s a real danger obsessive fans might try to break in.”

Paris, Michael Jackson’s middle child, was rushed to hospital last month after she slashed her wrists and took a cocktail of pills.

She has struggled with depression since her dad died aged 50 four years ago. A spokesperson for Paris refused to comment.
