Paris Jackson 'physically fine' after suicide attempt

Los Angeles, June 6 (IANS) Late pop legend Michael Jackson's 15-year-old daughter Paris is now "physically fine" and "safe" after reportedly attempting suicide.

Paris slashed one of her wrists with a meat cleaver at her Calabasas, California home and was rushed to a hospital Wednesday morning. Her grandmother Katherine Jackson's attorney says Paris is doing well, reports tmz.com.

"Paris is physically fine and getting appropriate medical attention. 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," said the attorney.

Jackson brothers Jackie, Marlon and Tito said in a statement: "She is safe and doing fine."

Paris is said to have left a suicide note and then cut her arm with a meat cleaver.

Sources in the know how of the situation told tmz.com that Paris "called a suicide hotline and the person on the other end was alarmed enough to call 911".

She not just cut her right forearm, the teenager had also taken a large number of Motrin pills.

On Tuesday night, Paris had posted a series of messages on her Twitter account, displaying her disturbed state of mind. One of them reads: "I wonder why tears are salty?"

"Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away now it looks as though they're here to stay," she added.

A source connected to the family tells that Paris "threw a fit" Tuesday night after she was told she couldn't go to a Marilyn Manson concert.

The teenager had recently begun developing a relationship with her birth mother Debbie Rowe, Michael's ex-wife, who relinquished her custody rights to Paris and brother Prince following her divorce from the "Bad" singer in 1999.
