Paris Jackson Update: Judge Orders Investigation Into Her Well-Being
Following Paris Jackson's suicide attempt, a judge has ordered an investigation into her welfare.
TMZ reports that Judge Mitchell Beckloff, the same judge who appointed Katherine Jackson as her guardian, has ordered an investigation to determine if Paris's welfare has been compromised.
Beckoff has asked an investigator in the probate court to "prepare a written report and include therein any recommendations relating to the minor child's health, education and welfare."
He was made aware of the situation thanks to the non-stop media coverage of Paris's suicide attempt. She is reportedly still hospitalized and under psychiatric evaluation.
“There have been communications between the court and counsel and we’re completely supportive of the court’s actions,” Katherine Jackson’s attorney, Perry Sanders Jr., said Friday, according to CBS News.
Beckloff also intervened when Katherine Jackson went off the radar last year. The Jackson family matriarch had been taken by some of her children to a resort in Arizona. The confused situation led to Tito Jackson’s son, TJ, being granted shared guardianship of the children.
“This is standard protocol in a high-profile case,” T.J. Jackson's attorney Charles Shultz wrote in an email, CBS News reports. “The court is doing what we fully expected the court to do.”
