Paris Jackson shares video of herself smoking a bong following false suicide reports

Following "false" reports that she attempted to end her life last week, Paris Jackson has now shared a video of herself smoking a bong with her 3.5 million followers on her Instagram story.

The 20-year-old model posted the daring video at 4:20 am, in an apparent reference to cannabis culture. A male - believed to be her boyfriend and fellow The Soundflowers bandmate, Gabriel Glenn - can be heard in the background of the video guiding the model, who turns 21 next week.

This is the moment the brazen model filmed herself smoking a bong:

The shameless post comes in the wake of reports from various publications that Michael Jackson's only daughter had attempted suicide.

It was implied that the attempt to end her life came as a result of the damning child sexual abuse allegations that were levelled against the late King of Pop in the explosive two-part documentary, Leaving Neverland.

These reports were quickly quashed by Paris herself in the form of a tweet response to a TMZ Twitter post reporting the "false" news.

Paris has kept relatively quiet about the allegations that have been raised against her father, stating that it's not her "role" to defend him. "I'm just tryna get everyone to chill out and go with the flow," she added on Twitter.

According to Mirror Online, Paris was involved in an incident following which medical treatment was necessary, but she had, in no uncertain terms, attempted to end her life.

On the same day that the false suicide reports began circulating, Paris was photographed out in Los Angeles with her boyfriend, Gabriel Glenn.

The outspoken 20-year-old has been very open about her struggles with depression and past attempts to end her life.

In a 2017 interview with Rolling Stone, Paris very candidly opened up about having attempted suicide "multiple times".

"It was just self-hatred," she told the magazine. "Low self-esteem, thinking that I couldn’t do anything right, not thinking I was worthy of living anymore."
