Paris Jackson, the 15-year-old daughter of late pop star Michael Jackson, was rushed to a Los Angeles-area hospital on Wednesday (June 5) after an apparent suicide attempt, her mother said, but her family later reported she is "physically fine."

"Paris is physically fine and is getting appropriate medical attention," Perry Sanders, an attorney for Paris' grandmother and guardian, Katherine Jackson, said in a statement.

"Being a sensitive 15-year-old is difficult no matter who you are," the statement added. "It is especially difficult when you lose the person closest to you."

Paris' mother, Debbie Rowe, told entertainment TV program "Entertainment Tonight" that her daughter attempted suicide and had "a lot going on (lately)."

Celebrity website, which first reported the suicide attempt, said Paris had been taken from her family's home in Calabasas, California, by ambulance at about 2 a.m. local time, citing unnamed sources.

She is reportedly recovering at West Hills Hospital, northwest of Los Angeles.

Los Angeles County Sheriff deputies responded to a medical situation in Calabasas at 1:27 a.m. (0827GMT), sheriff spokesman Steve Whitmore said, declining to provide additional details because of privacy laws.

Jackson's children live under the custody of their 83-year-old grandmother, Katherine, and their cousin, T.J. Jackson.
