Paris Jackson is reportedly doing “much better” following her attempted suicide and hospitalization, according to E!.
Nonetheless, CNN reports that a judge has ordered an investigation into her well-being at the hands of her legal guardian, her grandmother Katherine, though the matriarch’s lawyers insist that they are “completely supportive of the judge’s action.”
Meanwhile, there’s talk that Paris’ birth mother, Debbie Rowe, could become her legal guardian if her daughter so wishes, though TMZ reports that this is not going over well with the Jackson brood. They “will fight Debbie ‘tooth and nail,’” says a source.
As if there wasn’t enough tumult in that family.
