Randy Jackson wants Paris released from treatment

MICHAEL JACKSON's brother Randy has called for the late superstar's daughter Paris to be released from psychiatric care as he fears the teenager has been held by doctors for too long.

The King of Pop's only daughter was hospitalized in Los Angeles on 5 June (13) and spent several weeks at the UCLA Medical Center after she allegedly attempted to take her own life.

She was discharged in July (13), but was moved to a residential treatment center instead of returning to the Jackson family compound in California.

Paris' uncle, Jackson 5 star Randy, has now voiced his concerns for the 15 year old's wellbeing, as he is afraid such a long stay in hospital will actually worsen her mental health.

He tweets, "I don't like that Paris is still in this facility. It's not right. She's been there much too long. She is not psychotic. There is no reason for her to be in a psychiatric hospital this long away from her family. I just hate the fact that you will probably still be there on my brother's birthday (29Aug13). This is not good. There's something more to this, there's something going on I don't like it I'm afraid for her.

"Psychiatric hospitals often... make you feel as though you're psychotic when you're not. Sometimes they make matters worse. I'm going to look into this. Stay tuned."
