Michael Jackson's ex-wife says daughter Paris is 'devastated'
LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - Michael Jackson's ex-wife said in a Los Angeles court on Thursday that their daughter Paris is "devastated" over her father's death and "doesn't feel like she has a life."
Debbie Rowe, 54, broke into tears and sobbed loudly while answering questions under cross-examination about 15-year-old Paris and the teenager's recent suicide attempt.
"Her father is dead. I almost lost my daughter," Rowe said in Los Angeles Superior Court, which is hearing a lawsuit brought by Jackson's family against concert promoter AEG Live.
"She tried to kill herself," said Rowe, who grew so emotional that the court adjourned for a break, and she was not called back to testify. "She is devastated. She doesn't have a life. She doesn't feel like she has a life anymore."
