Paris Jackson
Paris has made her first public communication since the attempting to take her life on 5 June.

Paris Jackson, the troubled daughter of the late Michael Jackson, has broken her silence almost a month after her failed suicide bid to thank fans for their prayers and support.

The 15-year-old, who is the second of the King of Pop's three children, was rushed to hospital in June following a suspected drug overdose.

She is currently at a rehabilitation centre after receiving treatment at UCLA Medical Center - the same facility in which her father died.

The teenager reportedly reached out to her fans in her first public communication since the incident, through her mother Debbie Rowe.

Rowe, who was married to Jackson between 1996 and 1999, recently rekindled her relationship with Paris after turning over full custody of the children to Jackson as part of their divorce settlement.

She wrote on Twitter: "My daughter has asked that I extend a huge thank you for all your thoughts and prayers and support.

"She is strong like her father."

Paris attempted to take her life by cutting her wrists with a meat cleaver and swallowing 20 Motrin painkillers at her Los Angeles home on 5 June.

She is said to have been battling severe depression at the time and was upset after she was told she could not go to a Marilyn Manson concert.

It has also been suggested that Paris, who is the second of the King of Pop's three children, was stressed by her impending appearance in the ongoing wrongful death lawsuit that the Jackson family are bringing against concert promoters AEG Live.
