LOS ANGELES (AP) - The 15-year-old daughter of Michael Jackson is physically fine after being taken to a hospital early Wednesday, an attorney for Jackson's mother said.
Perry Sanders Jr. writes in a statement to The Associated Press that Paris Jackson is getting appropriate medical attention and the family is seeking privacy.
Fire and sheriff's officials confirmed they transported someone from a home in Paris' suburban Calabasas neighborhood for a possible overdose but did not release any identifying information or additional details.
Sanders declined further comment on Paris' condition or the circumstances that led to her hospitalization. The teenager has expressed interest in acting and frequently posts messages about her life on Twitter.
Her latest post was from the Beatles' song "Yesterday": "yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away now it looks as though they're here to stay."
