At just 11 years old, Paris Jackson went through the grueling experience of losing her father and pop superstar Michael Jackson. And ever since then, it seems as if she has been battling the demons that remain in her life after such a tragedy.

According to various sources, Jackson is currently seeking treatment to improve her emotional health.

“After a busy year of work engagements that took her all over the globe, Paris decided that she needed to take some time off to reboot, realign and prioritize her physical and emotional health,” a source tells People magazine. “She checked herself into a treatment facility to aid in her wellness plan and is looking forward to coming out of this revitalized and ready to tackle the exciting new projects that await her.”

Throughout the years, the 20-year-old beauty has gone through her share of tough times, including being hospitalized in 2013 after a suicide attempt.

“I don’t wanna give too many details,” says Jackson in a past interview. “But it was not a good experience at all, and it was really hard for me, and, at the time, I didn’t tell anybody.”

Jackson, who also has opened up about being a bi-sexual in recent years, has also dealt with emotional struggles such as drug addiction and depression.

However, after seeing all the reports about her mental health, Paris took to Instagram to set the record straight.

“the media is exaggerating per usual.. yes i’ve taken a break from work and social media and my phone because it can be too much sometimes, and everyone deserves a break, but i am happy and healthy and feeling better than ever!,” she writes. “gabriel and i have some new music we’re stoked to share with y’all! (@thesoundflowers) hope you guys’ new year started out with lots of love and light and all the things. i’ll be back soon!! xxox 🌻♥️”

There you have it.
