Michael Jackson’s 15-year-old daughter Paris was hospitalized early Wednesday morning following an attempt at suicide, a source told FOX411. 

The Los Angeles County Fire Department said that fire personnel responded to a home in Calabasas for a medical rescue on Wednesday. 

"We received a call at 1:27 in the morning. We transported a patient to the hospital at 1:47," a rep told FOX411. "We responded to a call of an overdose. That’s the kind of call we got."

Her mother, Debbie Rowe, confirmed to ET that her daughter tried to commit suicide, adding that the teen has had "a lot going on [lately]."

A lawyer for Katherine Jackson added that things have been especially hard for her client's granddaughter since Michael Jackson's death. 

"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," the lawyer stated. "Paris is physically fine and is getting appropriate medical attention."

TMZ reported that the 911 caller stated that Paris had cut her wrists.

The teen most recently tweeted several cryptic messages early Wednesday. She wrote: "yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away now it looks as though they're here to stay."

She also mused: “I wonder why tears are salty?”

Paris was recently reported to be bonding with Rowe, who was married to Jackson from 1996 to 1999. Rowe's lawyer, Eric George, told FOX 411: "We appreciate everyone's thoughts for Paris at this time and their respect for the family's privacy."

The King of Pop had three children Prince, Paris and Blanket. 

Paris, like the other children, was shielded from the spotlight during her famous father's lifetime. As kids, the Jackson siblings often wore masks to hide their faces from the paparazzi's cameras. 

Jackson died on June 25, 2009, at the age of 50.
