Paris Jackson Shuts Down Claims She's Heading Back To Rehab

The young star sets the record straight after Demi Lovato’s relapse.


After a recent Radar Online report stated that Demi Lovato's recent drug relapse influenced Paris Jackson to head back to rehab, the young scion has fired back, claiming the chatter is completely false.

First taking to her Instagram story, she responded to the article, writing, "Ummm no?? I haven't gone to a clinic.. someone doesn't have to almost die for me to know to be healthy, I've already had friends OD and die. That's enough for me."

She later took to Twitter to further refute the claims:


Paris Jackson has reportedly made a huge leap towards her road to sobriety as she is said to be heading back to rehab after learning of Demi Lovato's drug overdose.

According to Radar Online, the young scion, 20, was heavily rocked by the news of Lovato's drug-induced hospitalization with an insider adding that she willingly agreed to go back to rehab.

"Demi almost died, and that was a big trigger for Paris to get healthy," the insider said. "She was concerned about Demi, and in shock when she heard the news. She feels her problem could get bigger if not dealt with appropriately."

The site reports that Jackson's vices, based on the source's claim, included a deadly mix of alcohol and drugs.

Her behavior has come into question by her family since her grandfather Joe Jackson's recent death.

"Paris has refused to talk to her family," the insider continued. "She was embarrassed and saddened that more wasn't done for her grandfather when he died, and she had enough."

This will not be Jackson's first stint at a rehabilitation facility. She first attended rehab and AA when she was 17.
