Paris Jackson has angrily denied reports about her health after the Leaving Neverland documentary.

Paris Jackson has rubbished claims she tried to kill herself in response to the scandal prompted by the controversial Michael Jackson documentary Leaving Neverland.

Jackson, daughter of the late musician, posted a denial to Twitter in response to claims made by the US entertainment news website TMZ.

"F**k you you f*****g liars," she wrote on Saturday.

The 20-year-old followed the post with another containing a series of question marks.

A source close to Jackson said she had had an incident this morning that required medical treatment and that she was resting at home, denying reports of a suicide attempt.

A story on the TMZ website linked Jackson's hospitalisation to the release of the documentary, which aired in two parts on Channel 4 at the beginning of the month.

It featured Australian Wade Robson and US man James Safechuck, who both alleged they were sexually abused by the King of Pop.

Jackson is the second child of Michael Jackson and Debbie Rowe. She was 11 when her famous father died in 2009 at the age of 50.

Speaking to Rolling Stone in 2017, Jackson revealed she had attempted suicide "multiple times".
