Paris Jackson's mother says she is ''strong like her father'' Michael Jackson.

Debbie Rowe has thanked fans for supporting the 15-year-old aspiring actress following her recent suicide attempt and said she is recovering well in hospital in Los Angeles.

She wrote on Twitter on Saturday (29.06.13): ''My daughter has asked that I extend a huge thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers and support.''

She added: ''She is strong like her father.''

Paris is still undergoing treatment at a psychiatric facility at UCLA Medical Center after overdosing on painkillers and slashing her wrists earlier this month because she had reportedly been struggling to adjust to life without her father, who died in 2009.

A source told ''This really all comes from her not yet over her dad being gone. It's been so hard to adjust to stepping back into the world.''

Another insider insisted that Paris wants to get better, saying: ''I know Paris freaked out and regretted what she had done after she had done it. That's when she cried for help. That saved her life.''

Paris has lived with her brothers Prince Michael, 16, and Blanket, 11, under her grandmother Katherine Jackson's legal guardianship in Calabasas, California, since the King of Pop's death from a fatal dose of Propofol.

The troubled teen has been growing closer to Debbie, who waived custody rights when she divorced Michael in 1999, in recent months.
