She needs “discipline.”

You already know this—Michael Jackson‘s daughter Paris was hospitalized early last month for trying to commit suicide by slicing her arm with a meat cleaver after she was denied permission to go to a Marilyn Manson concert.

The plot thickened after it was discovered that she’s been acting out in school since her father’s death and that she’s been sharing disturbing photos about cutting and death on her Tumblr account.

But according to her uncle, Jermaine, there’s no real meltdown and the teenager really was just seeking for “attention” because she couldn’t get what she wants.

Jermaine told TMZ this week:

“[Paris] has to learn there are certain guidelines when you grow up being a teenager. There are rules.”

However, the “Jackson 5″ singer is not blaming Paris… entirely. He seemingly suggests that her guardians (grandmother Katherine and cousin TJ) should also be held accountable for the incident.

“I just think that … things could have been enforced a little stronger.”

For all we know, Jermaine could (also) be talking about Michael.
