Paris Jackson is outraged about those tabloid reports about her mental health and says she does not have the same level of patience to deal with media attention as her late father Michael Jackson, who is the subject of a disturbing and controversial new documentary that she adds is not her “role” to speak out about.
In January, E! News learned that Paris, 20, had checked into a treatment facility to “take some time off to reboot, realign and prioritize her physical and emotional health.” Paris would then tweet that she had “taken a break” and that she was “happy and healthy and feeling better than ever.” In recent days, there have been a couple of unflattering tabloid reports about her alleged behavior, which follow growing controversy over the Leaving Neverland documentary, which focuses on two men accusing the King of Pop of past child sex abuse.
When a fan asked Paris on Twitter on Thursday if she would “trade the wealth for the freedom from disgusting press,” Paris replied, “I have the same moral compass as my father, but not the level of patience. Ill fight for love n peace in the same way, but I am more aggressively driven. I dont sit by idly when i see injustices happen, especially when theyre directed towards me or my family. F–k that noise.”
A fan told Paris that she thinks tabloids are “provoking” her because shes “not really speaking” about Leaving Neverland, which her family has denounced as lies.
“Theres nothing I can say that hasnt already been said in regards to defense,” Paris replied. “[My cousin] Taj [Jackson] is doing a perfect job on his own. and i support him. But thats not my role. Im just tryna get everyone to chill out and go with the flow, be mellow and think about the bigger picture. Thats me.”
Insiders say Paris is concerned that the allegations will derail her career, and shes never once considered the possibility that her father might be guilty.
On Wednesday, tabloid magazine In Touch published a story about Paris that included a photo showing what it said was her having an “explosive fight” with her boyfriend and Soundflowers band mate, Gabriel Glenn, in New Orleans during Mardi Gras celebrations on March 3. The headline included the words, “Downward Spiral?”
“Damn Im just now catching wind of these downward spiral articles.. this is like, what ? the 7th time yall have accused me of this ? the 3rd in the past month? n yet not one OD from all the drugs yall accuse me of doing or any hospitalizations… 7… but whos counting right…” Paris tweeted on Thursday.
“Like.. no please.. give it up.. there are so many more interesting things to write about,” she added. “And actions speak louder than words. So if my actions prove your words wrong, why keep trying to pull this s–t? its a lil pathetic. Ill pray for yall. SMOKE SOME WEED AND MELLOW OUT.”

Paris also wrote, “Me and my bf re-enacted The Californians from SNL while we were in NOLA purely for the entertainment of our friends, and paps happened to be taking pictures of it all and…. yall it looks like a full on break-up scene in a sad drama movie omg.”
Another tabloid, Radar Online, recently alleged that Paris “spiraling out of control, friends fear, in a haze of smoke and booze” after the “damning” Leaving Neverland documentary.
“F——kkkk youuuuuuuuu you lying pieces of s——ttttttttttttt,” Paris tweeted in response, adding, “I smoke weed on my story ONE time and all of a sudden Im a junkie meth alcoholic party raver thats also secretly married and pregnant and may or may not have a penis. I have a job. And dogs. And a bedtime. Go f–k yourself.”
