Katherine Jackson, matriarch of the Jackson clan, is opening up about her granddaughter’s attempt to take her own life earlier this year.

Speaking with Hello Magazine, Katherine says Paris Jackson, who has been living in a residential facility after the events in June, is doing quite well.

“She is in a good place, getting the help she needs,” she said, adding, “The treatment is going good, really good. She’s my baby. It’s hard for me, really hard. All I wanted these kids to be is happy.”

With Michael Jackson’s nephew, TJ, Katherine shares custody of the 15-year-old Paris and her two brothers.

This week will be tough for the whole family, as Thursday, August 29 marks what would have been Michael’s 55th birthday.

“There’s not a day goes by that I don’t think about him; when I don’t shed a tear,” Katherine said of her late son. “He was a very good father, the best. He was a good son, too.”
