Everyone deals with problems in different ways, and it seems as if Prince Jackson is coping with the stress over his sister Paris’ suicide attempt by getting back into a normal routine. The 16-year-old was spotted shopping at Barneys in LA on Thursday with his girlfriend, Remi Alfalah.
Michael Jackson’s oldest child was by his 15-year-old sister’s side in the early hours of Wednesday morning after she cut herself with a kitchen knife and swallowed 20 Motrin pills. She was hospitalized under a 5150 psychiatric hold, and was reportedly transferred to a pediatric facility in LA as a judge ordered a review into her “health, education and welfare.”
Prince and his grandmother Katherine Jackson visited Paris in hospital on Thursday, as did the siblings’ biological mother, Debbie Rowe.
Perhaps needing an escape after seeing his troubled sister, Prince headed to Barneys New York with Remi (his classmate at the exclusive Buckley School). “They browsed the store together looking at clothes and shoes,” an eyewitness tells In Touch. “Prince tried on several pairs of sneakers and they were looking at denim. They were very cute together, holding hands and showing each other stuff they liked.”
Prince has been spending a lot of time with the Kuwaiti princess, whose family is worth millions. After shopping, they headed to Mulberry Street Pizza in Beverly Hills for dinner. “They got a slice and a water each and sat outside,” an onlooker tells In Touch. “It was just the two of them and they seemed very happy, both of them were smiling.”
After Paris was hospitalized, Prince – who made his acting debut on 90210 last month – cancelled a trip to Europe where he was scheduled to appear on the German TV show Wetten, Dass..?.
