Everything OK, Paris Jackson? The daughter of the late Michael Jackson got into an explosive fight with her boyfriend, Gabriel Glenn, on March 3 — just three months after checking into rehab. The two were celebrating Mardi Gras in New Orleans together, an eyewitness tells In Touch magazine, when they started arguing.
“They were drinking and started arguing at the bar BMC,” the source revealed to the mag, on newsstands now. “They were shouting at each other.” At one point Paris, 20, begged Gabriel, 28, “to stop,” before turning away to wipe away her tears. Moments later, she yelled, “Don’t f—king touch me right now,” when Gabriel tried to grab her face. “They seemed to be arguing about drugs, and she looked messed up,” they added. “Her eyes were wide, and she was fidgety.”
The model sought treatment for alcohol abuse and mental health issues in mid-December, Radar Online reported at the time. Over the years, she’s been honest with fans about her battles with self-harm and addiction. Most recently, on January 16, Paris took to Instagram to share an update with fans.
“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! (@thesoundflowers) hope you guys’ new year started out with lots of love and light and all the things. i’ll be back soon!!”
“I actually haven’t made any statements yet, especially regarding how it affects my work life,” Paris said, responding to an article from Gay Star News that claimed she had spoken out in support of her father. “You guys are reaching a bit.” When her followers continued to be concerned about where she stood on the doc, she encouraged them to “chillax” and “smoke some weed” and focus on the “bigger picture.” After all, “reacting with a calm mind usually is more logical than acting out of rage,” she wrote. “It feels better to mellow out.”
That said, our source revealed the accusations have been hard on the starlet. “It’s a difficult time for her. She’s conflicted over the accusations about her father. She doesn’t know what to believe anymore.”
