Earlier today we posted on reports that suggest that Paris Jackson checked into a rehab facility to tend to her mental health. The daughter of Michael Jackson chose "to take some time off to reboot, realign and prioritize her physical and emotional health" after a hectic year and even more controversy surrounding her father's upcoming documentary. 

The 20-year-old has taken to Instagram to discuss her plans, calling out the media for "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 wrote. "Gabriel and i have some new music we’re stoked to share with y’all! Hope you guys’ new year started out with lots of love and light and all the things. I’ll be back soon!!"


“They always say, ‘Time heals,'” Paris previously told Rolling Stone. “But it really doesn’t. You just get used to it. I live life with the mentality of ‘OK, I lost the only thing that has ever been important to me.’ So going forward, anything bad that happens can’t be nearly as bad as what happened before. So I can handle it.”
