Judge Mitchell Beckloff has ordered an investigation into Paris Jackson's custody, E! News has learned.
In the court document, Beckloff says that a probate court investigator must prepare an investigation report "addressing the status of the minor child, Paris Michael Katherine Jackson, and recent media reports concerning her welfare."
The investigator's report was asked to include any recommendations related to Paris' health, education and welfare and was requested to only be delivered to Judge Beckloff himself.
Amid reports that child-welfare services were investigating Jackson's family home after her alleged attempted suicide, the Department of Child and Family Services has offered the following statement to E! News:
"The Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services is legally prohibited from disclosing any case specific information regarding any of our clients, celebrity or otherwise. To confirm that a child or parent is involved in our system is a breach of confidentiality. State statutes have been established to protect children, parents, and their families from having sensitive allegations aired in the public creating an additional unwanted burden."
The DCFS added that they "assess the situation as it relates to child safety and take all necessary precautions to safeguard the well-being of the child," should they receive a request to investigate a particular incident.
