Michael Jackson's family failed to show up in court on Wednesday (06.06.13)
The Jackson family were meant to attend the high-profile court case after filing a wrongful death lawsuit against concert promoters AEG Live, but had other things on their mind after the King of Pop's 15-year-old daughter allegedly tried to kill herself on the same morning.
Paris was rushed to hospital in Calabasas, California after she allegedly cut her wrists and took an overdose of pills following a blazing row, which saw her complain she wanted to live her ''own life'' after being told she couldn't attend a Marilyn Manson gig that same day.
An insider said: ''Paris feels that no one in her family 'gets' her anymore and she feels isolated and alone.
''During the row on Tuesday night she said her father knew her better than anyone and knew what it was like growing up in the spotlight.''
Paris' actions are being speculated as a ''cry for help'' after being reportedly bullied at school and she was due to testify at the Jackson family's $40million legal battle against gig promoter AEG, who they blame for the King of Pop's death in 2009.
A source added to The Sun newspaper: ''Paris has been going through hell. We don't think she wanted to take her life - we feel it was a cry for help.''
The teenager is currently in UCLA hospital, where she is under 24-hour watch, and was visited by her birth mother, Debbie Rowe, and aunt La Toya Jackson yesterday.
Following reports Paris had a row over not being able to attend Manson's gig, the singer reached out to her yesterday.
He said: ''I hope you feel better. You will be on my guest list anytime you want.''
