    Paris Jackson's hospital stay could be over very soon.

    A source close to the family exclusively tells E! News that the 15-year-old is expected to be released from UCLA Medical Center by Friday so that she can attend cousin Taj Jackson's wedding on Sunday. Paris was transferred from Children's Hospital in Calabasas to UCLA last night.

    "The plan is to not keep her past Friday," says the insider. "[Co-guardian] T.J.'s brother Taj is getting married and she desperately wants to be there and everyone wants her to be there."

    We're told that "all" of the Jacksons are "so far" planning attend the wedding bash at the Jacksons' Encino, Calif., compound.

    As for Paris' condition, the source says, "She is in a much better place. She is doing better. From what I understand, she is now in as a precautionary measure."

    She was rushed to the hospital last Wednesday morning after allegedly overdosing on pills and, according to this family source, cutting herself with a kitchen knife (and not a meat cleaver, as some outlets have reported).

    "Tito and Dee Dee got married on June 16, 1972. Taj and Thayana will get married on June 16, 2013," Taj Jackson wrote on Facebook alongside a Jet magazine cover from July 20, 1972, featuring his parents' nuptials.

    Taj took to Twitter last month to defend Paris' father in light of choreographer Wade Robson's new accusation that Michael Jackson had molested him as a child.

    Jackson's estate is fighting the claim, saying the statute of limitations for a civil suit in the matter has passed. A judge is looking into whether parts of Robson's complaint should be unsealed.
