Michael Jackson's mom Katherine Jackson maintains the King of Pop's daughter Paris is "in a good place" as she battles her inner demons in a treatment facility.
In June, the 15 year old was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital amid rumors of a suicide attempt, and after more than a month in the unit she was transferred to a secluded residential facility specializing in treating depressed teenagers.
Her grandmother Katherine has now spoken out to reveal Paris, who kept a collage of photographs of her late father on her bedroom wall, is recovering well and is expected to return home by December.
Katherine tells Hello! magazine, "She's in a good place, getting help she needs... She is doing much better. The treatment is going good, really good. She's my baby. It's hard for me, really hard. All I wanted these kids to be is happy... My heart just bleeds for her because she is so young."
Katherine shares legal guardianship of Paris and her brothers, Prince, and Blanket, following Michael's death from an accidental overdose of anesthetic propofol in 2009.
