Paris Jackson Will Not Attend Family Wedding, Still Recovering


I know the tabs and TMZ and Randy Jackson will be disappointed, but Paris Jackson will not be attending a family wedding in Encino this weekend. Paris’s cousin Taj Jackson is getting married at the Jacksons’ now abandoned former HQ, the Havenhurst house in Encino owned by Michael Jackson’s estate. But Paris is staying at UCLA Medical Center where she is undoubtedly getting some needed rest and learning how to deal with life in a complex world. I keep reading crazy stories and posts either in TMZ or the New York Post that are far, far from the mark. But there’s a fine line here dealing with a 15 year old, her mother, and their family. While it might be great to drive traffic off this story, it also might be more prudent to let this kid alone. I’m still not sure why Katherine Jackson or guardian TJ haven’t pulled down Paris’s Twitter account. PS Mrs. Jackson, Prince, and Blanket will attend.
