Paris Jackson will leave boarding school and be with her family for Christmas.

The 15-year-old daughter of the late Michael Jackson - who is currently staying at a $14,000-per-month therapeutic private school in Utah, while she recovers from an apparent suicide attempt in June - will reportedly spend the festive season in Hawaii with her family.

However, an insider told E! News she won't be back at her home for the winter because they expect her to try to convince them she should stay there permanently by showing ''she's gotten better''.

The source said: ''The family doesn't want Paris to spend her entire winter break at home because they don't want her getting comfortable.

''The family thinks Paris will try to talk her way into staying home after showing the family she's gotten better.''

Her grandmother Katherine has previously spoken about her intensive treatment and insisted she is ''doing much better''.

She revealed: ''She is in a good place, getting the help she needs. She is doing much better.

''The treatment is going good, really good. She's my baby. It's hard for me, really hard. All I want these kids to be is happy.''
