Paris Jackson released from 72-hour psychiatric hold
UPI News Service, 06/09/2013
A 72-hour psychiatric hold put on Paris Jackson, the 15-year-old daughter of the late pop star Michael Jackson, has been lifted, officials said.
Paris Jackson was hospitalized Wednesday after attempting to commit suicide by cutting herself with a kitchen knife and swallowing ibuprofen, TMZ reported.
She was placed in a psychiatric facility for observation for 72 hours, which ended Saturday evening when she was transferred to a medical center in Los Angeles, the report said.
Citing a source involved in the production of "Lundon's Bridge and the Three Keys," an upcoming animated film, TMZ reported Paris' suicide attempt will not result in her being removed from the cast of the production.
"There's a policy that we will have to buy now that we would not have had to buy prior to the incident," said the source, whose name was not reported. "We're prepared to pay a large amount of money for the policy."
Paris will not be needed for the film for another six months, which producers believe will give her enough time to get better, the source told TMZ.
