In a heartbreaking video posted and later deleted from her Instagram page, Paris Jackson revealed that she once attempted suicide over social media abuse.

The 18-year-old daughter of the late Michael Jackson sobbed as she recounted her difficult journey.

"I don't understand how there can be so much hatred in the world right now," she said.

"I've tried sticking up for myself. I've tried the whole blocking the haters thing, not reading the comments...I've tried a lot of things, ignoring it. But it's hard when there's so much of it.

"I don't get why I'm such an easy target. I try to be nice to everybody that I meet. I give everyone a chance."

Paris revealed that four years ago, when she was 14, she attempted suicide because of the incessant bullying.

"When I was 14, I got so much hatred that I tried to kill myself," she said.

"And then I took like a two year break from social media, and people asked me to come back, to make my Instagram public again, so I did. And nothing changed."

Paris has been a visible presence on social media, especially Instagram, over the last couple of years. She regularly posts pictures of her new tattoos as well as snaps with her rocker boyfriend Michael Snoddy.

The pair recently posed for their first photo shoot, which appears to have brought out the haters in full force.

"I mean we're human beings, man. We got hearts and brains and feelings. When you say damaging things like that to people, it f---s them up.

"And I don't know if that's what people want, but it's exhausting," she added. "Sorry for the rant. It's some stuff that I've been holding in for a long time."
