Michael Jackson’s daughter, Paris Jackson, was rushed to the hospital, early Wednesday morning, after attempting suicide.
A rep for the family, Sandra Ribera, just released the following statement to RumorFix on behalf of the starlet’s grandmother, Katherine Jackson, “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. Paris is physically fine and is getting appropriate medical attention.”
The rep adds, “Please respect her privacy and the family’s privacy.”
Earlier this week, Paris sent out a series of cryptic tweets, including, “yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away now it looks as though they’re here to stay,” and “I wonder why tears are salty?”
