Los Angeles, June 6: The 15-year-old daughter of late international pop icon Michael Jackson, who attempted to commit suicide on Wednesday, is physically fine now, reports said on Thursday.


Paris Jackson was rushed to the hospital immediately after she cut one of her wrists on Wednesday morning.



With appropriate medical attention, Paris is out of danger and recovering, reports said.

Paris reportedly called a suicide counseling hotline early on Wednesday. The counselor in turn called 911 to the Jackson home in Calabasas, CNN reported.

"Being a sensitive 15-year-old is difficult no matter who you are," attorney Perry Sanders said on Wednesday morning adding, "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."

Paris posted messages to her million-plus Twitter followers on late Tuesday evening saying:"I wonder why tears are salty? Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away. Now it looks as though they\'re here to stay."

Paris, along with her grandmother, Katherine Jackson, and her brothers, Prince and Blanket, are suing AEG Live for liability in Michael Jackson\'s 2009 drug overdose death.

Paris and Prince are the key witnesses in the Los Angeles trial and are expected to testify in the death trial later this month.

Jackson trial lawyer Kevin Boyle told reporters outside the court on Wednesday afternoon that Paris can decide if she will testify in the case.

"The Jackson family and the Jackson lawyers are putting no pressure on Paris regarding this case at all. It is AEG who is putting this case at Paris\' back door," Boyle said.

Paris and Prince were questioned separately over two days by AEG lawyers just before the trial began in April, CNN reported.

"A grilling of a child regarding the loss of her father is going to create a lot of pressure. Paris Jackson was asked intimate details about her father and her father\'s death; it was a very intense situation," Boyle said.
