Paris Jackson Hospitalized

Michael Jackson's teen daughter, Paris Jackson, was hospitalized early Wednesday morning, according to TMZ, after a possible suicide attempt.

Paris Jackson, the daughter of Michael Jackson, was hospitalized Wednesday morning, TMZ and Radar are reporting. Sources tell the gossip sites that Jackson attempted suicide, which Jackson's mother, Debbie Rowe, and the publicist for Jackson's grandfather also confirm. Emergency responders wheeled Jackson from her California home in a stretcher at 2 a.m., and TMZ reports that the 911 caller said the 15-year-old had possibly overdosed. Another source also tells the site that emergency responders found cuts on one of her wrists. TMZ cites a "source closely connected to Paris" who says that Paris "tried this in the past" but "this was far more serious." Both outlets say Jackson is doing well in the hospital.

CNN reports:

"She's going to be OK," one source, who was at the hospital, said. The sources said it was unclear why she was hospitalized.

The sources stopped short of calling it a suicide attempt, although one suggested it might be "a cry for help" from the teenager.

Paris posted messages to her million-plus Twitter followers late Tuesday evening:

"i wonder why tears are salty?"

"yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away

"now it looks as though they're here to stay"
