Sophie Jastrow, Paris Jackson’s best friend, has spoken of her shock following Michael Jackson’s daughter’s apparent suicide bid – revealing she was left “shaking” after hearing the news.
Sophie Jastrow made her comments as it became clear that Paris Jackson, 15, had been under immense strain recently after being forced to defend her newly-forged relationship with her mother Debbie Rowe.
The schoolgirl tweeted: “so f***in sad right now…litdraally (sic) shaking right now…literally i cant even focus.”
Joline Nehoray, another of Paris Jackson’s friends and a fellow student at the private Buckley school in California, added: “So heartbroken. Stay strong.”
Paris Jackson posted pictures of her and Sophie Jastrow together at Debbie Rowe’s California home last month, adding: “Ok so I realized that Sophie became my best friend and i love her so much.”
Writing on her ask.fm site, Paris added: “So i realized dat some ppl dont like my mom and im getting hateful comments about sayin obviously rude things about my mom and i won’t let that okay?
“I am bonding good with her and like i said we are really strong relationship and nobody’s gonna stop me from that (: x yes Prince still isn’t ready idk why but he will meet her too (: i hope so no hate! xx “
Paris Jackson had revealed that she was back in touch with her biological mother, writing: “So on my birthday, I hung out with my mom because of course, haven’t seen her since… a long time ago. So glad I bonded with my mother. It’s like we have this really strong relationship and did I mention, I kind of look like her. It was so amazing to see my mother after all these years. Love her.”
But when one critic said her mother was only out to use her, Paris Jackson replied: “Well wtf are u messing in my life?
“Stfu im sick of ppl like u who are saying that! She wasn’t in my life around 15 years but now as i said we became close and i know that she wouldn’t use me cuz im her daughter kay?”
Paris Jackson was taken from her Calabasas family home on a stretcher at around 2am on Wednesday and conveyed to a nearby hospital, according to TMZ.
Scott Miller of the Los Angeles County Fire Department tells People Magazine that paramedics responded to a 911 call at 1.27 a.m. “regarding a possible overdose” while TMZ reports a source as saying Paris Jackson had cut herself multiple times on one of her wrists.
Insiders told Entertainment Tonight Paris Jackson was upset because she was not allowed to go to a Marilyn Manson concert in Los Angeles on Thursday.
The incident unfolded just hours after the teenager posted a series of alarming messages on Twitter.
Around midnight she recited the sorrowful Beatles’song Yesterday to her million plus followers, writing: “Yesterday, all my troubles seem so far away, now it looks as though they’re here to stay.”
An hour previously, Paris Jackson posted: “I wonder why tears are salty.”
The 911 call came in at 1.27 am local time, according to TMZ and the website reports Paris Jackson is now “doing ok”.
