Michael Jackson’s only daughter, 15, was despondent over several things, sources close to the situation tell exclusively. She had cuts on one wrist and the 911 call was placed as a possible overdose.

The four-year anniversary of her father’s death is approaching and several family members are suing the promoter of what was supposed to be his final concert.

In addition to her depression over being a witness in that trial, Paris also feels guilty about spending time lately with Debbie Rowe, her biological mother. Paris, according to one source, feels as if she is betraying some family members, including her grandmother Katherine, by getting to know her mom.

In addition, her close relationship with older brother Prince has been strained lately. “He doesn’t like her spending time with Debbie,” a source told “And Prince has been spending more time with his girlfriend.

“Paris feels like her old life is slipping away.” She has also had trouble at school.

When asked what pushed her to attempt suicide, another source close to the Jackson family told "The trial, Wade Robson's lies about her father and she's been struggling to fit in at school."

Rowe confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that Paris tried to commit suicide and is in a Los Angeles hospital. Rowe said of Paris she has "a lot going on lately."

He said the report didn’t say who made the call and the report doesn’t say if the person was awake when it happened.

Paris should make a full recovery, a source tells
