On Saturday (Mar. 16) TMZ reported that Micheal Jackson's daughter Paris Jackson attempted suicide and was rushed to the hospital. Minutes after the report went live, Paris denied that she attempted suicide on Twitter.

"Fuck you you fucking liars," she tweeted on Saturday. She followed up the tweet with "???????? ."

TMZ claims that police and EMS responded to a call at Paris' home in Los Angeles around 7:30 am local time after she allegedly cut her wrists. She was taken to a local hospital.

Even after Paris' tweets, TMZ has double down on their initial report, following up with her release from the hospital Saturday afternoon. Reportedly she arrived back to her LA apartment wearing a jacket that said, "Puppies And I'm Fine."

Sources told the media outlet that the suicide attempt was mostly because of the backlash of the "Leaving Neverland" documentary.

The fallout from the documentary has resulted in several radio stations in Canada and New Zealand to pull the pop icon's music. "The Simpsons" producers have removed an episode with uncredited Michael Jackson voice acting off of streaming and syndication and last week Drake removed his Michael Jackson-assisted song "Don't Matter to Me" off of the setlist of his European tour.

As we previously reported, MJ's children Paris, Prince and Prince Michael Jackson II are considering pursuing legal action against Wade Robson and James Safechuck, the two men at the center of "Finding Neverland." The Jackson children are considering suing for emotional distress, slander, fraud and misrepresentation.

Back in February, the estate of Michael Jackson filed a $100 million lawsuit against HBO claiming they violated a non-disparagement agreement the network and Jackson made before his death by purchasing and airing the "Leaving Neverland" documentary.

In 1992 when Jackson and HBO worked together to air the "Michael Jackson Live in Concert in Bucharest: The Dangerous Tour" on the premium network, the contract forbid Home Box Office from making any disparaging remarks about the singer or any representatives of his that may harm or disparage his public image.
