Michael Jackson's daughter Paris rushed to hospital after suicide attempt

Paris Jackson was rushed to hospital in the early hours of Wednesday after an apparent suicide bid.

Her mother Debbie Rowe is understood to have confirmed the reports to Entertainment Tonight and said the 15-year-old is currently at a Los Angeles hospital. 

A lawyer for Katherine Jackson, Paris’ grandmother, also weighed in with a statement.

'She's suffered with the loss of her father,' the lawyer told the New York Daily News. 'But we don't know what she was exposed to that precipitated this.'

Paris, the daughter of the late Michael Jackson, was taken from her Calabasas family home on a stretcher at around 2am and conveyed to a nearby hospital, according to TMZ.

Scott Miller of the Los Angeles County Fire Department tells People Magazine that paramedics responded to a 911 call at 1.27am 'regarding a possible overdose' while TMZ reports a source as saying the teenager had cut herself multiple times on one of her wrists.

Insiders told Entertainment Tonight Paris was upset because she was not allowed to go to a Marilyn Manson concert in Los Angeles on Thursday.

The incident unfolded just hours after the teenager posted a series of alarming messages on Twitter.

Around midnight she recited the sorrowful Beatles’ song Yesterday to her million plus followers, writing: 'Yesterday, all my troubles seem so far away, now it looks as though they’re here to stay.’

An hour previously, she posted: 'I wonder why tears are salty.'

The 911 call came in at 1.27am local time, according to TMZ and the website reports Paris is now 'doing ok'.

Michael Jackson died in June 2009 aged 50 after suffering a heart attack brought on from an overdose of propofol and benzodiazepine.
