Sophie Jastrow, Paris Jackson’s best friend, has spoken of her shock following Michael Jackson’s daughter’s apparent suicide bid – revealing she was left “shaking” after hearing the news.
Sophie Jastrow made her comments as it became clear that Paris Jackson, 15, had been under immense strain recently after being forced to defend her newly-forged relationship with her mother Debbie Rowe.
The schoolgirl tweeted: “so f***in sad right now…litdraally (sic) shaking right now…literally i cant even focus.”
Joline Nehoray, another of Paris Jackson’s friends and a fellow student at the private Buckley school in California, added: “So heartbroken. Stay strong.”
Paris Jackson posted pictures of her and Sophie Jastrow together at Debbie Rowe’s California home last month, adding: “Ok so I realized that Sophie became my best friend and i love her so much.”
Writing on her ask.fm site, Paris added: “So i realized dat some ppl dont like my mom and im getting hateful comments about sayin obviously rude things about my mom and i won’t let that okay?
“I am bonding good with her and like i said we are really strong relationship and nobody’s gonna stop me from that (: x yes Prince still isn’t ready idk why but he will meet her too (: i hope so no hate! xx “

Paris Jackson had revealed that she was back in touch with her biological mother, writing: “So on my birthday, I hung out with my mom because of course, haven’t seen her since… a long time ago. So glad I bonded with my mother. It’s like we have this really strong relationship and did I mention, I kind of look like her. It was so amazing to see my mother after all these years. Love her.”
But when one critic said her mother was only out to use her, Paris Jackson replied: “Well wtf are u messing in my life?
“Stfu im sick of ppl like u who are saying that! She wasn’t in my life around 15 years but now as i said we became close and i know that she wouldn’t use me cuz im her daughter kay?”
Paris Jackson was taken from her Calabasas family home on a stretcher at around 2am on Wednesday and conveyed to a nearby hospital, according to TMZ.
Scott Miller of the Los Angeles County Fire Department tells People Magazine that paramedics responded to a 911 call at 1.27 a.m. “regarding a possible overdose” while TMZ reports a source as saying Paris Jackson had cut herself multiple times on one of her wrists.
Insiders told Entertainment Tonight Paris Jackson was upset because she was not allowed to go to a Marilyn Manson concert in Los Angeles on Thursday.
The incident unfolded just hours after the teenager posted a series of alarming messages on Twitter.
Around midnight she recited the sorrowful Beatles’song Yesterday to her million plus followers, writing: “Yesterday, all my troubles seem so far away, now it looks as though they’re here to stay.”
An hour previously, Paris Jackson posted: “I wonder why tears are salty.”
The 911 call came in at 1.27 am local time, according to TMZ and the website reports Paris Jackson is now “doing ok”.
Nurse Jacintha Saldanha died on Friday in an apparent suicide after she transferred a hoax call from Australian DJs who retrieved sensitive information about Kate Middleton while in King Edward WII Hospital.
Jacintha Saldanha, 46, also known as Jess, is thought to have come to the UK from southern India ten years ago and settled in the UK with her partner, 49-year-old hospital accountant Benedict Barboza.
The couple bought their £123,000 three-bedroomed home in 2005 in the Westbury-on-Trym district of Bristol.
After registering as a nurse in 2003 when she initially worked for the North Bristol NHS Trust, which runs Frenchay and Southmead hospitals, it is believed the nurse chose to apply for a job at King Edward VII four years ago and appears to have been living in the nursing accommodation ever since.

She has a son called Junal, 16, and daughter, believed to be 14. She stayed in London when she was working before returning to her family on days off.
Jacintha Saldanha is thought to have been from the Mangalore region of India. She is thought to have spent time in the Middle East before moving to Britain.
The hospital said Jacintha Saldanha had not been disciplined over the call.
Mary Kennedy, the estranged wife of Robert F. Kennedy Jr., has been found dead at her home in New York state.
No cause of death had been released, but US media reported Mary Kennedy, 52, had been discovered hanged in a barn behind the family’s lavish home yesterday.
In a statement, Mary Kennedy’s family said her “radiant and creative spirit” would be sorely missed.
Robert F. Kennedy Jr., a lawyer and radio host, is the nephew of President John F. Kennedy and son of Senator Robert F. Kennedy, both assassinated in the 1960s.
His marriage to the former Mary Richardson in 1994, in a ceremony aboard a boat on the Hudson river, was his second.

The couple had four children over the 16 years of their marriage before he filed for divorce in 2010.
Mary Kennedy, an architect, had brushes with the law over drug and alcohol abuse, and was arrested twice for driving under the influence at about the time they separated.
“We deeply regret the death of our beloved sister Mary, whose radiant and creative spirit will be sorely missed by those who loved her,” the family said in a statement issued by lawyer Kerry Lawrence, who had represented Mary Kennedy in a drink-driving case.
“Our heart goes out to her children who she loved without reservation.”
A neighbor, Leslie Lampert, told the Associated Press news agency that Mary Kennedy was “community oriented” and “a lovely individual”.
“She was always kind in our presence.”
Police confirmed a body had been found on the Kennedys’ property in Bedford, north of New York City, but would not release the name.
The incident was under investigation by the Bedford Police Department with assistance from the Westchester County Medical Examiner’s Office. An autopsy is scheduled for Thursday.
US broadcaster ABC News cited a family member and other sources as saying Mary Kennedy appeared to have hanged herself.
