la–me–0127–mj–kidsParamedics were told that Paris Jackson had taken pain relievers and cut herself in an apparent suicide attempt last week at the Jackson family home in Calabasas, according to emergency recordings.

The recordings, obtained by the Associated Press, show officials were told the subject of the 911 call had taken 20 Motrin pills and used a knife to cut herself.

Paris Jackson was rushed to a hospital and is now recovering.

The Jackson family has asked the media to respect boundaries.

“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,” attorney Perry R. Sanders Jr. said in the statement.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and Fire Department would say only that they responded to a “medical emergency” on the block where the Jackson family lives in Calabasas.

The night before the apparent suicide attempt, Paris tweeted: “yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away now it looks as though they’re here to stay.”

Paris and her family and AEG are locked in a legal battle over Michael Jackson’s death. Paris is a possible witness in the civil trial.

The suit — filed by Katherine Jackson, Michael Joseph Jackson Jr., Prince Michael Jackson II and Paris Jackson — alleges that AEG negligently hired and supervised Dr. Conrad Murray, who, in an attempt to help the singer sleep, gave him a fatal dose of the anesthetic propofol.

Jackson died in 2009, two weeks before his “This Is It” tour was scheduled to begin in London. Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in 2011.
