A lawyer for Michael Jackson's mother Katherine has requested privacy for the family as the King of Pop's daughter Paris recovers from an apparent suicide attempt. The teenager was reportedly stretchered out of her Calabasas, California home in the early hours of Wednesday (05Jun13) after paramedics responded to an emergency call regarding "a possible overdose". Paris Jackson's biological mum, Debbie Rowe, has since revealed to U.S. news show Entertainment Tonight that her girl was "rushed to the hospital with cuts on her wrist", adding that she has had "a lot going on". The youngster's condition is now stable and Katherine's attorney Sandra Ribera has asked the media to allow the child to recover in peace. A statement issued by Ribera reads, "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. Please respect her privacy and the family's privacy." Paris' uncles Jackie, Marlon and Tito Jackson have also released a statement, which reads: "Thank you for the outpouring of concern and support for Paris. She is safe and doing fine. We truly appreciate you respecting our family privacy at this time." The 15 year old hinted at personal troubles on her Twitter.com page prior to her hospitalisation, asking why "tears are salty" and quoting lyrics from The Beatles classic Yesterday, writing: "Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away now it looks as though they're here to stay". The aspiring actress, her brothers Prince Michael and Blanket, and their grandmother Katherine Jackson are currently in the midst of a wrongful death lawsuit against the bosses of AEG Live, accusing them of ignoring the tragic superstar's health issues prior to his doomed This Is It comeback concerts. The fourth anniversary of the Thriller hitmaker's death will be marked on 25 June (13).
