Paris Jackson appears to be "fine."

After news broke that Michael Jackson's 15-year-old daughter was hospitalized early Wednesday after allegedly attempting suicide, Kevin Boyle, an attorney for Katherine Jackson, tells E! News in a statement that she's "physically fine."

Boyle added, "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. Paris is physically fine and is getting appropriate medical attention. Please respect her privacy and the family's privacy."

The teen was rushed by ambulance from her Calabasas family home to a nearby hospital at approximately 1:30 a.m. That came after she posted an ominous series of tweets, one of which read, "Yesterday ,all my troubles seemed so far away now it looks as through they're here to stay."

Eric George, a lawyer for Jackson's mother, Debbie Rowe, has since requested privacy.

"We appreciate everyone's thoughts for Paris at this time and their respect for the family's privacy," the legal eagle said.

We wish Paris a speedy recovery.
