LOS ANGELES (CNN) — Paris Jackson, the 15-year-old daughter of Michael Jackson, was rushed to a hospital early Wednesday morning, sources close to the Jackson family told CNN.

“She’s going to be OK,” one source, who was at the hospital, said. The sources said it was unclear why she was hospitalized.

TMZ and ET reported Paris may have tried to commit suicide.  The Los Angeles Times reported Paris may have overdosed.

Paris posted messages to her million-plus Twitter followers late Tuesday evening:

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said its deputies “responded to a medical situation” at an address that matches the Jacksons’ Calabasas, California, home at 1:27 a.m. Wednesday. A patient was taken to a hospital, it said.

Paris was recently reunited with her mother, who bowed out of her life when she was an infant. She has been spending time with Debbie Rowe on her horse farm.

Rowe issued a statement through her lawyer Wednesday morning: “We appreciate everyone’s thoughts for Paris at this time and their respect for the family’s privacy.”

Paris, along with her grandmother, Katherine Jackson, and her brothers, Prince and Blanket, are suing AEG Live for liability in Michael Jackson’s 2009 drug overdose death.

Paris and Prince are scheduled to testify in the wrongful death trial later this month. Both teens were questioned in depositions for two days each by AEG lawyers in recent months.

Paris made millions cry four years ago when she spoke up at the end of the public memorial service for her father.

“Ever since I was born, daddy has been the best father you could ever imagine,” she said, fighting back tears as relatives consoled her. “And I just want to say that I love him so much,” she said as she burst into tears and sought refuge in the embrace of family members.
