The 15-year-old daughter of Michael has been recovering from her recent suicide attempt and has apparently told social workers at UCLA Medical Centre she doesn't want to be under the care of grandmother Katherine and cousin TJ Jackson anymore.
The Daily Star newspaper has revealed the troubled star ''wants to live'', but wants to do so under the care of the 'Chain Reaction' hitmaker.
According to an insider, Paris said: ''I want to live. I just don't want to live at home any more. I feel like I'm being stifled there.
''I miss my dad terribly still and at times I feel like there's no one I can talk to about how I feel.
''I want to go and live with Diana, who was one of dad's closest friends.''
It was recently said that the 69-year-old singer was concerned for her goddaughter's well-being but had no intention of stepping on the toes of the Jackson family while the 'Thriller' star's children are in good care.
A source previously revealed: ''Diana absolutely isn't going to make a move for custody of the children. She only wants what is best for them.
''Diana has tremendous respect for Katherine and all that she has done for the children and told her ... when they spoke, that if she needed anything, she stands ready to help in anyway.''
