Paris Jackson Slams Reports She’s Headed to Rehab After Demi Lovato Hospitalization
Paris Jackson, a sober woman, is lashing out at reports that suggest she's headed down a dark road toward rehab after Demi Lovato's reported overdose and hospitalization.
Jackson addressed rumors she was seeking treatment across a series of Instagram stories. One report said "This was an eye opener to many people. Hopefully those that feel that they can 'handle it on their own' seek out help. Paris Jackson is returning to rehab after what happened to [Lovato]."
Another noted "Because of what happened to Demi Lovato, Paris Jackson decided to return to the clinic where she was already in the hospital."
Welp, Jackson didn't take too kindly to the gossip, and sought to set the record straight.
“ummm no?? I haven’t gone to a clinic.. someone doesn’t have to almost die for me to know to be healthy, I’ve already had friends OD and die. that’s enough for me,” Jackson wrote.
And she doubled down on the idea across a series of tweets.
“bruhh i already made a statement about this! i haven’t gone back to rehab, or to any clinic.. idk who decided to make this bulls--- up for clickbait but it’s annoying!...I don’t need a celebrity’s misfortune to make me healthy. i’ve had enough friends OD to send me that message!”
Jackson was previously hospitalized for attempting suicide in 2013 after a lengthy bout of depression and opened up about a struggle with drugs in a 2017 interview with Rolling Stone. She said enrolling in a therapeutic school in Utah completely changed her life for the better.
