Online trolls made her teenage years hell
Paris Jackson has revealed that she was tormented by online trolls so much that she attempted suicide.
Paris, who is daughter to pop super-star Michael Jackson, broke down as she opened up about the dark period of her life.
In a now-deleted video on Instagram, she said: ‘I don’t understand how there can be so much hatred in the world. But it’s hard when there’s so much of it.
‘When I was 14 I got so much hatred I tried to kill myself.’READ THE LATEST CELEBRITY NEWS
She also spoke about Justin Bieber‘s girlfriend Sofia Richie, 18. She has been the target of such a vitriolic hate campaign against her that Bieber even deleted Instagram for a time.
The 18-year-old said that Sofia was ‘sweet’ but ‘people are telling her to kill herself.’
Paris has opened up about her mental health problems on Instagram before. In June, the star explained to her followers that the intricate art works on her arms were used to cover up scars obtained from self-harming.
She wrote: ‘today I can look at my inner forearms and see art that has meaning for me, I don’t see a dark past anymore.
‘my scars and past of self-hatred have been covered by loving marks, creativity, ingenuity.. and depth. Sure I will always carry my past with me, but I see ink as a way of changing for the better, always improving.’
