PARIS Jackson accidentally cut her arm with kitchen scissors during a “crazy” night of partying – but did not try to kill herself, friends have reportedly claimed.
Audio of a 911 call appears to reveal how emergency services responded to a “psychiatric problem involving a possible VIP” that was upgraded to an emergency at Paris’ California home.

Paris blasted reports that she tried to take her own life as a “direct response” to the recent child sex abuse claims made against her dad Michael in the Leaving Neverland documentary.
She is understood to have confided in friends about what actually prompted the emergency on Saturday March 16.
A source close to Paris told DailyMail.com: “Paris was partying really hard that night – but that’s nothing unusual for her.
“It turned into a pretty crazy night and she had been acting a little out of control.
“But she says she accidentally cut her arm with kitchen scissors and it wasn’t a suicide attempt.”
Her friends dialled 911 after they were not able to stop the blood flowing, the source claimed.
Paris reportedly continued to “act wildly” in the hospital, but she was discharged when her people promised to get her to rehab.
Doctors are understood to have wanted to keep her in for observation for at least three days.
Paris has struggled with depression since her dad Michael’s death in 2009 and reportedly attempted suicide back in 2013.
She has blasted claims by the same celeb news site that claimed she was “refusing to go to rehab”.
She tweeted: “They didn’t get the crazy reaction they wanted from the doc, and a chill, mellow reaction doesn’t sell stories so why not lie and create a story that does sell ? pathetic’.”
People has since reported Paris is “doing fine”, with a source saying: “Paris had an accident that required medical treatment.”
They added: “She is currently resting at home and doing fine.”
Paris has been seen since the reported hospitalisation, telling reporters “I’m good”.
She was wearing a “Puppies, Wine and I’m Fine” Jacket, with the word “wine” appeared to be deliberately covered over with tape.
She was later seen grabbing KFC and heading to the movies with her boyfriend Gabriel Glenn.
‘NOT MY ROLE TO DEFEND DAD’
In documentary film Leaving Neverland, two former child companions of Michael Jackson allege the superstar singer groomed and raped them when they were children.
Paris previously said it’s “not her role” to defend her controversial father.
The model wrote on Twitter: “There’s nothing I can say that hasn’t already been said in regards to defense.”
She went on to add that she supports the Jackson family’s long-standing efforts to clear his name.
Paris spoke out after being followed by paparazzi while she was in New Orleans.
One fan suggested she was being hounded because people wanted to hear her views on the claims in documentary film Leaving Neverland, where two former child companions of Michael Jackson allege the superstar singer groomed and raped them when they were little boys.
In response, she praised her second cousin Taj Jackson who is the face of the media campaign defending his uncle.
“Taj is doing a perfect job,” said Paris. “I support him but that’s not my role.
“I’m just tryna get everyone to chill out and go with the flow, be mellow and think about the bigger picture. That’s me.”
