Michael Jackson’s teen daughter, Paris Jackson, was hospitalized early Wednesday morning in what is being described as a “possible suicide attempt.”
Paris was taken out of her Calabasas, Calif., family house on a stretcher at around 2 a.m., reports TMZ, and taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital.
The 911 call came in at 1:27 a.m., reports TMZ, noting that the caller said it was a possible overdose.
But the King of Pop’s ex-wife and Paris’ mom, Debbie Rowe, tells Entertainment Tonight that Paris, 15, was “rushed to the hospital with cuts on her wrist.” Rowe tells ET that Jackson has had “a lot going on (lately).”
Katherine Jackson’s lawyer, Perry Sanders, tells USA TODAY: “Being a sensitive 15-year-old is difficult no matter who you are. It is especially difficult when you lose the person closest to you. Paris is physically fine and is getting appropriate medical attention. Please respect her privacy and the family’s privacy.”
Paris recently rekindled her relationship with Rowe, and has been spending time with her for the first time since Michael and Debbie divorced in 1999. Mom and daughter were spotted celebrating Paris’ 15th birthday at Ahi Sushi in Studio City, Calif., on April 3.
ET also reports that the teen was ticked off about not being able to go to a June 6 Marilyn Manson concert.
Rowe’s lawyer, Eric George, issued a statement to USA TODAY that said, “We appreciate everyone’s thoughts for Paris at this time and the respect for the family’s privacy.”
CNN says two sources are confirming the story, with one source, who was at the hospital, adding, “She’s going to be OK.”
Paris’ Twitter page is filled with cryptic and eerie tweets of late. The most recent one is: “yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away now it looks as though they’re here to stay.”
Michael Jackson died on June 25, 2009.
