Los Angeles: Paris Jackson, the 15-year-old daughter of late pop star Michael Jackson, was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital on Wednesday after an apparent suicide attempt.

"She's going to be OK," a source close to the Jackson family told a news channel. The source, who was at the hospital, said it was unclear why she was hospitalized.
A website, which first reported the suicide attempt, said Paris had been taken from her home in Calabasas, California, by ambulance at about 2 am time, citing unnamed sources.
Jackson, who died in 2009 from a lethal dose of surgical anesthetic propofol, was married to Rowe from 1996 to 1999, and the couple had two children together, Prince Michael in 1997 and Paris in 1998. Jackson later had a third child, Prince Michael II, also known as Blanket.
Rowe turned over full custody of the children to Jackson as part of their divorce but she had recently rekindled her relationship with Paris.

Paris, along with her grandmother, Katherine Jackson, and her brothers, Prince and Blanket, are suing AEG Live for liability in Michael Jackson's drug overdose death.
Paris and Prince are scheduled to testify in the wrongful death trial later this month. Both teens were questioned in depositions for two days each by AEG lawyers in recent months.
