jermaine_jackson(2010-chin-on-hand-med-upper)*Jermaine Jackson says that his niece Paris Jackson has a problem with authority and needs to learn discipline.

Her uncle insinuated that the entire suicide attempt/cutting incident stemmed from Paris’ overreaction to being told that she couldn’t go to a concert, according to TMZ.

TMZ reported that last month Paris cut her arm with a meat cleaver and was hospitalized after her family forbid her from attending a Marilyn Manson concert (Manson later dedicated a concert to her!).

Sources said that Michael Jackson’s death in 2009 has been hard for Paris to cope with and has been the source of her issues. But TMZ ran into Jermaine the other day who explained that issues aside, Paris still needs to realize she can’t always have her way.

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

Jermaine also feels that Paris’ guardians are to blame for her problems as well. “I just think that … things could have been enforced a little stronger.”

Without naming names, it is unclear which person he feels needed to tighten the reigns on Paris and steer her in the right direction: T.J., Katherine, or Michael himself.
