“She’s already such a fragile character, so a ton of people worry she won’t be able to cope without Gabriel by her side,” explains the friend.
“I can’t see my life without him,” Paris said about Gabriel prior to the breakup.
“Paris is putting on a brave face publicly, but everyone knows she’s totally in pieces right now.” The musician, 22, has been open about her struggles, admitting that after the death of her dad, Michael Jackson, in 2009, she went into a downward spiral that involved drug use and suicide attempts, and landed her in rehab.
Nowadays, the start says she experiences depression “in waves.” And though she’s maintained her sobriety, her loved ones are still anxious.
Says the pal, “Making music with Gabriel was a creative outlet, and now that she doesn’t have that, the fear is she could succumb to her old addictions.”
