Paris Jackson recovering after being rushed to hospital

05 JUNE 2013

Paris Jackson is recovering in a Los Angeles hospital after being hospitalised on Tuesday.

The 15-year-old's birth mother, Debbie Rowe, confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that her daughter has had "a lot going on" recently.

Paris, the only daughter of the late Michael Jackson, is said to be doing fine. Various media outlets are reporting that she is expected to fully recover. 

 



In the early hours of Wednesday morning, the teen, who is sister to Prince Michael Jackson and Blanket Jackson, caused concern with a series of cryptic tweets on Twitter. "Yesterday , all my troubles seemed so far away," she quoted from the Beatles' song Yesterday. "Now it looks as though they're here to stay."

Her previous tweet read, "I wonder why tears are so salty."

Support flooded in for the teenager on Twitter as the hashtag #PrayForParisJackson trended worldwide. American music mogul Russell Simmons posted, "My prayers are with Paris Jackson and her family at this time."

American actress Alyssa Milano wrote, "@parisjackson Send you support and love."  

This month was inevitably difficult for the family and friends that legendary popstar Michael left behind as 25 June marks the fourth anniversary of his passing.

 

 

A lawyer for Paris's grandmother, Katherine Jackson, told the NY Daily News, "She's suffered with the loss of her father. But we don't know what she was exposed to that precipitated this."

On 31 May, Paris appeared to be in good spirits as she posted a makeup tutorial on her YouTube page.

At the end of April it was reported that Paris was forging a relationship with her biological mother Debbie Rowe.

Debbie married the late King of Pop in 1996, but allowed the pop star to have sole custody of Paris and her brother Prince, 16, when they divorced and negotiated an $8million settlement in 1999.

According to People magazine, Paris has been reaching out to her mother as she navigates her difficult teenage years.

"Paris has been going through a lot of teenage angst and feels a little bit unloved," a source told the US publication. "So about three months ago Paris reached out to her mother and told her she wanted to establish a relationship with her.

"Debbie was open to it, and [Paris's grandmother] Katherine Jackson is supportive of the developing relationship."

The insider even suggested the teen could move to her mother's horse ranch in Palmdale, California, adding, "Right now Paris is happy with the situation as it is.

"It's even looking like at some point Paris will want to move in with Debbie."

Paris's brother Prince, who works as a reporter for US showbiz news channel Entertainment Tonight, isn't following his sister's lead and is said to have "anger issues" because his mother "abandoned" him.

When Michael Jackson died in 2009, his mother Katherine was awarded permanent custody of Prince, Paris and their younger brother Blanket, 11.
