Taking to her Instagram story on Tuesday, the 20-year-old daughter of the late Michael Jackson, denied reports that she’s heading back to rehab following Lovato’s hospitalization.
“ummmm 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 wrote in response to a tweet alleging she was headed back to rehab.
She also addressed the rumor on Twitter: “i haven’t gone back to rehab, or to any clinic.. idk who decided to make this bulls–t up for clickbait but it’s annoying! i don’t need a celebrity’s misfortune to make me healthy. i’ve had enough friends OD to send me that message!”
Paris was born into the spotlight and her every move only became more public — and more troubled — after the passing of Michael in 2009. In 2013, she overdosed on Motrin while engaging in self-harm and was hospitalized in Los Angeles.
“It was great for me. I’m a completely different person,” she said of her time in rehab. “I was crazy. I was actually crazy. I was going through a lot of, like, teen angst. And I was also dealing with my depression and my anxiety without any help.”
Lovato still remains in the hospital.
