Paris Jackson hit back Wednesday at reports that she’s checked into a treatment facility for “emotional health,” stating that she’s just taking “a break from work and social media.”

“The media is exaggerating per usual.. yes I’ve taken a break from work and social media and my phone because it can be too much sometimes, and everyone deserves a break, but I am happy and healthy and feeling better than ever,” the 20-year-old actress/model captioned her post on Instagram. (RELATED: Paris Jackson Calls Out Paparazzi Over Comparison To Her Dad: ‘Does No One Remember’ The Disguises)

Jackson has previously opened up in the past about her struggles with depression and anxiety.

“It was just self-hatred, low self-esteem, thinking that I couldn’t do anything right, not thinking I was worthy of living anymore,” the actress shared at the time about cutting herself and attempting suicide at the age of 15.

“I was crazy. I was actually crazy,” she added. “I was going through a lot of, like, teen angst. And I was also dealing with my depression and my anxiety without any help.”
