Following an suicide attempt on Wednesday, Paris Jackson is now recovering, a family representative says.

"Paris is physically fine and getting appropriate medical attention," Sandra Ribera, attorney for Paris's legal co-guardian Katherine Jackson, says in a statement.

"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," she says (the fourth anniversary of Paris's father Michael Jackson's death is June 25). "Please respect her privacy and the family's privacy."
