LOS ANGELES: Paramedics were dispatched to Paris Jackson’s home on a report that the 15-year-old Michael Jackson daughter had taken 20 Motrin pills and cut herself with a kitchen knife, audio of an emergency dispatch released Tuesday shows.
The Los Angeles County Fire Department released audio of a call describing the need for paramedics between one of its dispatchers and a sheriff’s department dispatcher who was relaying information from the home.Paris is the only daughter of pop superstar Michael Jackson and was hospitalized after the June 5 incident.The teen was described as conscious and breathing during the call, but no other details about her condition or what led to the injuries were given on the call, which lasted approximately a minute.Perry Sanders Jr., a lawyer for her grandmother and guardian, has said Paris is physically fine and receiving appropriate medical treatment.
Paris and her two brothers Prince Michael and Prince Michael II, also known as Blanket, live under the court-ordered custody of their 83-year-old grandmother, Katherine Jackson, and cousin, T.J. Jackson, the son of Jackson’s older brother Tito.
Michael Jackson died in 2009 at age 50 from a lethal dose of the surgical anesthetic propofol.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff ordered an investigator to “address the status of the minor child, Paris Michael Katherine Jackson, and recent media reports concerning her welfare,” according to court documents filed after the she entered a hospital last week.
Katherine Jackson’s attorney, Perry Sanders, said last week that Paris was “physically fine.”
Sanders’ office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Jackson has recently rekindled her relationship with her biological mother, Debbie Rowe, who was married to Michael Jackson from 1996 to 1999 and turned over custody of her two children with him as part of their divorce.
