PARIS Jackson tried to commit suicide after reportedly being denied the chance to attend a Marilyn Manson gig.

A source told Entertainment Tonight the 15-year-old aspiring actress and daughter of Michael Jackson attempted to take her life on Wednesday (05.06.13) after being told she would not be able to go to the 'Dope Show' hitmaker's concert at the Gibson Amphitheater with Alice Cooper tonight (06.06.13).

Other reports have alleged Paris "flipped out" and screamed at the relative who stopped her seeing the goth rocker, and it is claimed she then locked herself in her bedroom at her Calabasas, California home and cut her arm before leaving a note and ringing a suicide hotline.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "It was the usual teenage stuff about where Paris was allowed to go and what she could wear. But it must have pushed her to breaking point.

"She has suffered terrible bullying recently. All the allegations about Michael abusing children have been back in the news, plus details of his drug use and even questions about whether he is the kids' biological father.

"Paris was also due to give evidence at her dad's wrongful death trial. It has all taken its toll."

Latoya Jackson is "grateful" for the concern for her niece Paris and appreciates the support shown to the family by the public, but she has asked for privacy while they try to deal with the shocking incident.

She told E! News: "We are grateful and appreciate the overwhelming concern for Paris from both the public and the media, but request privacy at this time while our family handles these issues together."

Paris previously paid tribute to LaToya for backing her decision to pursue an acting career, after it was revealed some members of her family were unhappy with her decision to take on a role in fantasy film 'Lundon's Bridge and the Three Keys'.

She said: "A lot of people don't want me to do it, but Aunt LaToya believes in me. She heard me play a little guitar and sing, and she started clapping, 'Oh my God, oh my God.'

"She really does encourage me; it's just awesome of her."

Michael Jackson's lawyer, Tom Mesereau said Michael would have been heartbroken by his daughter Paris' alleged suicide attempt.

He told RadarOnline: "Michael would have been devastated to learn that Paris had attempted suicide. His children were his entire life, and everything he did was for them. He protected his three children, and kept them away from opportunists.

"I'm heartbroken over Paris Jackson's suicide attempt. I'm shocked, and frankly, at a loss for words. Paris is just a wonderful young lady, beautiful, and extremely bright.

"She has so much to live for, and to contribute to the world. I hope that she makes a recovery, physically and emotionally."

The teenager is reportedly upset that she will be called as a witness in the Jackson family's high-profile court case after they a wrongful death lawsuit against concert promoters AEG Live.
