Paris Jackson has admitted she is attending AA meetings, thanks in part to the fact that she feels like she is being "attacked on ever f***ing thing I post" by her so-called fans who hassle the 17-year-old on Instagram.
Paris also compared her struggles in the public eye to those which led her father to turn to drugs to cope, when she wrote in a now deleted Instagram comment that read:
The expectations for my DAD were f***ing ridiculous. He didn't owe you anything, yet he was ripped to shreds DAILY. I will not let that happen to me.
In another comment, the teenager wrote that the pressure of being in the public eye and wanting to be liked by everyone contributed to her suicide attempt in 2013, she wrote:
I'm just not taking it anymore...like when i was 14 and deleting every single comment by hand because people were fighting too much and sending to so much hate to the point where i was suicidal? it's always been like this. just because i'm now starting to say something about it.
Paris also name dropped other famous young people who do not ever reply to Instagram comments, possibly trying to defend her decision to stop interacting with fans to ward off trolls. She wrote:
I'm just f**king done with this. way too much extra stress in my life. i'm literally the only person i know that responds to comments in general. justin, kylie, kendal, cody? none of them do it. i do. but apparently "not enough". so i'm going to go with "not at all."
The Daily Mail reports that Paris has recently broken up with her long term boyfriend, Chester Castellaw, which might explain why the young star is feeling so emotionally vulnerable at this time.
I can't imagine what it must be like to be thrust into the public eye, through no choice of your own, at such a young age, and I hope Paris is feeling better soon. It's hard enough being a teenager as it is, let alone with all these added pressures.
