MICHAEL JACKSON'S 15-year-old daughter PARIS was rushed to the hospital early yesterday morning after a suicide attempt.
According to various reports, Paris took about 20 Motrin and cut one of her wrists with a kitchen knife. She also left a suicide note, but the contents haven't been revealed.
According to one report, Paris realized she'd made a mistake almost immediately and, quote, "cried for help" . . . which saved her life.
Police responded to a 911 call at about 1:30 in the morning. Paris was taken to a nearby hospital and placed on a 72-hour mental health hold.
Sources say Paris had a fit Tuesday night when she was told she couldn't go see a MARILYN MANSON show on a school night. (Manson and ALICE COOPER are playing in L.A. TONIGHT.)
But there's a lot more going on than that, obviously. For starters, sources say Paris is still depressed over her father's death. And a statement from the attorney for Paris' grandmother, KATHERINE JACKSON, bears that out.
The lawyer said, quote, "Paris is physically fine and is getting appropriate medical attention. 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."
What's making matters worse is that she's supposed to testify in the wrongful death trial her family launched against Michael's concert promoters.
A source says, quote, "She's just a wreck. She was getting more and more emotional about having to take the stand as the day gets closer. This is a plea for help. She is broken."
