Paris Jackson, the teenage daughter of the late Michael Jackson, has reportedly attempted suicide.
The 15-year-old, who is the second of the King of Pop's three children, was rushed to hospital from her Los Angeles home following a suspected drug overdose, TMZ reports.
Her mother, Debbie Rowe, told Entertainment Tonight that the youngster was "rushed to the hospital with cuts on her wrist" and had had "a lot going on [lately]".
Just hours before she was taken to hospital, Paris, an avid tweeter, posted a line from the Beatles' hit, Yesterday, to her 1.1 million followers.
"Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away/ Now it looks as though they're here to stay," she wrote.
Paris was reportedly upset after she was told she couldn't go to a Marilyn Manson concert concert. She is said to have ran into her room screaming and slammed the door.
A source close to the girl claimed that she had attempted to take her life on another occasion.
"She tried this in the past [but] this was far more serious. It was not a cry for help," the insider told TMZ.
Michael Jackson, who was married to Rowe from 1996-99, died from a lethal overdose of the surgical aneesthetic propofol in 2009.
June 25 will mark the fourth anniversary of Jackson's death.
Rowe recently rekindled her relationship with Paris after turning over full custody of the children to Jackson as part of their divorce settlement.
"We appreciate everyone's thoughts for Paris at this time and their respect for the family's privacy," an attorney for Rowe said in a statement to USA Today.
Media mogul Russel Simmons tweeted: "My prayers are with Paris Jackson and her family."
The Jackson family has not released a public statement.
