Paris Jackson Hospitalized Following Apparent Suicide Attempt
Paris Jackson is resting in a Los Angeles-area hospital following a rough night.
Her mother, Debbie Rowe, tells Entertainment Tonight that the 15-year-old was rushed to the hospital around 1:27 a.m. after she supposedly attempted suicide at her family’s Calabasas home.
Although there are conflicting reports on the exact method, LA County Fire confirmed to ET that they responded to an overdose call.
According to Debbie, who was married to Michael Jackson, Paris has had “a lot going on [lately].”
Judging by the teen’s Twitter feed, something seems to have been upsetting her. Her last two posts were “wonder why tears are salty ?” and a line from The Beatles‘ song “Yesterday,” “all my troubles seemed so far away now it looks as though they’re here to stay.”

Katherine Jackson, who has raised Paris and her brothers Prince and Blanket since the King of Pop died in 2009, released a statement to ET.
“Being a sensitive 15 year old is difficult no matter who you are,” she wrote. “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.”
