Paris Jackson is recovering and getting help after an apparent suicide attempt, according to a statement released by the Jackson family’s attorney.

“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. Please respect her privacy and the family’s privacy,” attorney Perry R. Sanders Jr. said in the statement Wednesday.Sources said Paris Jackson was rushed to a hospital early Wednesday morning after an apparent suicide attempt at the family’s Calabasas home.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and Fire Department would say only that they responded to a “medical emergency” on the block where the Jackson family lives in Calabasas. The L.A. County Fire Department described the call as a “possible overdose” and said a patient was taken to a hospital.

One source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, told The Times that the patient was Michael Jackson’s daughter, Paris.

Jackson’s former wife and Paris’ mother, Debbie Rowe, also told “Entertainment Tonight” that Paris Jackson tried to commit suicide.

The night before the apparent attempt, Paris Jackson tweeted, “yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away now it looks as though they’re here to stay.”

The incident comes as Paris Jackson and her family and AEG are locked in a legal battle over the death of her father, Michael Jackson.

Paris Jackson is a possible witness in the civil trial.

The suit filed by Katherine Jackson, Michael Joseph Jackson Jr., Prince Michael Jackson II as well as Paris Jackson alleges that AEG negligently hired and supervised Dr. Conrad Murray, who — in an attempt to help the singer sleep — gave him a fatal dose of the anesthetic propofol.

Jackson died in 2009, two weeks before his ”This Is It” tour was scheduled to begin in London. Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in 2011.
