Paris Jackson to enrol in boarding school

08 July 2013, 10:26

Los Angeles - Paris Jackson is allegedly set to enrol in a boarding school for troubled teens.

The 15-year-old aspiring actress, who is still being treated in hospital in Los Angeles after recently attempting suicide, will reportedly be sent to the prestigious Diamond Ranch Academy in Utah, for struggling children, in a bid to learn to cope with her depression, which stems from her father Michael Jackson's death in 2009.

A source told the Sun on Sunday newspaper that Paris' grandmother Katherine Jackson and mother Debbie Rowe want to ensure she makes a full recovery.

The insider added: ''As far as Paris is concerned she is fine and is ready to go home, but the doctors and her family are not taking any chances. She tried to end her own life and it doesn't get more serious than that.

"She was in a terrible state and her family know it would not take much to tip her over the edge again."

"They are terrified she will have a major relapse if she has access to Twitter and the internet again - especially with all the shocking information that is coming out in the AEG wrongful death court case."

"Debbie and Katherine have looked into things and they have decided the best place for her is the Diamond Ranch Academy. It is a secluded treatment centre for 12 to 18-year-olds that specialises in depression and grief management.

"While she's there she can be around kids going through similar problems and concentrate on getting well again, without pressures from the outside world and all the negativity on the internet. The only stumbling block is the security situation.

"They know there will be a lot of attention on Paris while she's in residence and there's a real danger obsessive fans might try to break in."
