Less than 24 hours after her first-ever in-depth interview with Rolling Stone was released -- in which she got candid about the tragic death of her father, Michael Jackson, claiming he was murdered, and her past struggles with depression and drug abuse -- the 18-year-old model was swarmed by paparazzi at the Los Angeles International Airport on Tuesday.
Paris, who was returning home to California following her trip to France for Paris Fashion Week, shades her face as a slew of photographers and reporters circle around her in front of the airport's Coffee Bean. "I'm sorry, you guys are like blinding me, I'm really sorry," she exclaims.
Her bodyguard then urges the paparazzi to back up, as Paris puts on her sunglasses and tries to make an escape. The group follows Paris making a run for it in order to keep up with the edgy teen.
"Please stop, please stop," she insists, holding back tears.
"This is the first time Paris has experienced paparazzi attention of this magnitude," a source close to Paris told ET on Wednesday. "She was very scared."
"While her manager and security guard were with her, they were no match for the huge amount of paparazzi," the source added. "There was a mix-up with her car, which caused a delay in exiting the airport. This was a learning experience for everyone and security is being stepped up."
ET reached out to reps for Paris, who did not reply to request for comment.
Following the release of the Rolling Stone feature, Paris also took to Twitter, writing, "[I] will not be answering any press regarding the Rolling Stone article whatsoever. If you have questions then read it, it's crystal clear."
"And to those that have been calling my mother and my manager," she continued, "they will not answer anything either."
ET broke down 13 things we learned from Paris' haunting, emotional and honest tell-all, from her feeling "scared" for Justin Bieber to her detailing her most precious moments with the late King of Pop.
