Paris Jackson, 15, daughter of King of Pop Michael Jackson, was rushed to a hospital very early on Wednesday morning, with TMZ reporting it was a suicide attempt. This was confirmed by her mother, Debbie Rowe, who told ET Online that her daughter had “been going through a lot lately.” ET also reports that her attempt may the result of her being forbidden from attending a Marilyn Manson show at the Gibson Amphitheater on June 6.

Angel Howansky, longtime publicist for the Jackson family, has confirmed to the BBC that Paris tried to kill herself.

Paris is MJ’s second child, and the first daughter of Michael Jackson and Debbie Rowe. After her father’s death in 2009, custody of Paris was given to Michael’s mother, Katherine.
