Paris Jackson Suicide Try: Recovering From Overdose, Knife Cut

By    |   Thursday, 06 June 2013 06:55 AM

Paris Jackson, the 15-year-old daughter of Michael Jackson, is recovering at a California hospital after she reportedly "overdosed on 20 Motrin and cut her arm with a kitchen knife" in an apparent suicide attempt early Wednesday morning, according to audio from the 911 call released to ABC News.

Jackson, daughter of the King of Pop and Debbie Rowe, was rushed from her Calabasas, Calif., home to a nearby hospital around 2 a.m. Wednesday.

She reportedly had a meltdown Tuesday night and locked herself in her bedroom after she was told she would not be allowed to attend an upcoming Marilyn Manson concert, TMZ reported.

Sources close to the family have confirmed that Jackson is "going to be OK."

Jackson posted a series of cryptic tweets just hours before being rushed to the hospital.

"Being a sensitive 15-year-old is difficult no matter who you are," Perry Sanders, a lawyer for the Jackson family, said in a statement Wednesday. "It is especially difficult when you lose the person closest to you [her father]. Paris is physically fine and is getting appropriate medical attention. Please respect her privacy and the family’s privacy."

Jackie, Marlon, and Tito Jackson — Michael Jackson's brothers and Paris' uncles — also released a statement about their niece, assuring the public that she is "safe and doing fine."

"Thank you for the outpouring of concern and support for Paris," they said. "We truly appreciate you respecting our family's privacy at this time."

TMZ posted two photos of Jackson from earlier this year that show what appear to be scars on one of her wrists, indicating that perhaps this wasn’t the first time she self-harmed.

A source close to the family confirmed that Jackson has attempted suicide "in the past" but added that this time it was "far more serious."

June 25 marks the fourth anniversary of Michael Jackson's death.
