Despite Paris Jackson‘s apparent suicide attempt back in June 2013, Michael Jackson‘s 83-year-old mother Katherine Jackson is now saying that her granddaughter Paris is doing much better than before.
“She is in a good place, getting the help she needs,” the Jackson family matriarch told Hello! magazine in an exclusive interview. “She is doing much better.”
Now, Hello! says, the 15-year-old middle child is in a residential facility specializing in grief management and depression in younger people.
“The treatment is going good, really good,” Katherine said. “She’s my baby. It’s hard for me, really hard. All I wanted these kids to be is happy. The night Michael died Paris was crying and said, ‘I want to go and see Daddy; I don’t want to be without him.’ “
Paris’ access to social media and the Internet is limited at the facility, Radar Online reported last week. The site had a snapshot of Paris at a graduation ceremony, her hair dyed red.
Michael, whose other kids are Prince, 16, and Blanket, 11, died from a propofol overdose in June 2009, a couple of months shy of his 51st birthday.
