LOS ANGELES - Paris Jackson is still planning to pursue a career in acting after her recent suicide attempt.
The 15-year-old will start filming her debut movie Lundon’s Bridge and the Three Keys later in the year.
A source told TMZ that her hospitalisation will not halt the production, saying: “There’s a policy that we will have to buy now that we would not have had to buy prior to the incident. We’re prepared to pay a large amount of money for the policy, fortunately, we have a big budget.”
Jackson will not be needed on the movie for another six months, which producers say is adequate time for her to recover. Her family have released statements requesting privacy as she recuperates.
Meanwhile, a Los Angeles Superior Court judge has ordered a probate court investigator to make recommendations about the “health, education and welfare” of Paris Jackson, teenage daughter of late singer Michael Jackson, after an apparent suicide attempt this week, according to court documents.
Judge Mitchell Beckloff ordered the investigator to “address the status of the minor child, Paris Michael Katherine Jackson, and recent media reports concerning her welfare,” court documents filed on Thursday said. The teenager was rushed to a Los Angeles-area hospital on Wednesday after attempting suicide, her biological mother Deborah Rowe told the TV program “Entertainment Tonight.”
Paris’ grandmother, Katherine Jackson, said a statement distributed on Wednesday by her attorney, Perry Sanders, noted that “Paris is physically fine and is getting appropriate medical attention.”
“Being a sensitive 15-year-old is difficult no matter who you are,” Katherine Jackson said in her statement. “It is especially difficult when you lose the person closest to you.” Celebrity news website TMZ first reported the apparent suicide attempt, and said Paris was under psychiatric evaluation.
