Paris Jackson, the 16-year-old daughter of the late Michael Jackson, is pregnant, a source told the U.K.’s Daily Star. When fans spotted Jackson at dinner with her boyfriend, they reportedly noticed a burgeoning belly. The insider said she toasted twice with water instead of alcohol.
A source revealed: “I saw her at dinner and she twice made a toast drinking water instead of wine. That and the prominent stomach bulge got people talking. It’s highly unusual to toast with anything but a full glass of wine.” Since Jackson is only 16, it’s not that unusual that she would be drinking water instead of wine.
But the Daily Star claimed there were other rumors that said Jackson and her unnamed boyfriend were caught shopping for engagement rings.
Jackson has stayed out of the spotlight since her suicide attempt in June 2013. At the time, she had been posting morose tweets. Later, she reportedly slit her wrists with a kitchen knife and left a note. She was treated when paramedics arrived at her home and then transported to a local hospital.
Her suicide attempt reportedly stemmed from her father’s untimely death. "She has major depression issues, a lot of it stemming from her dad's death,” a source told Us Weekly at the time. It's very real and very sad," the insider added. "She has been extremely depressed and not been able to sleep lately, staying up all night."
Many of her fans are not pleased to hear rumors that she’s pregnant, and took to Twitter to discuss the gossip. Some of their comments have been posted below:
