As reported yesterday, the 15-year-old daughter of the late Michael Jackson was hospitalized after taking a large number of Motrin pills and cutting her forearm with a kitchen knife. According to TMZ, she has been placed under a 72-hour psychiatric hold, so she won't be allowed to leave that facility for the next couple days. She also received "numerous stitches for her cut."

The website also reports that Paris wrote a suicide note, but wisely also called a suicide hotline. It was that crisis intervention worker who contacted 911 and was able to get her help in time.

Some possible reasons behind the incident have come to light beyond the questionable initial report that she was merely upset about not being able to attend a Marilyn Manson concert. As the third anniversary of her father's death approaches later this month, she obviously has emotional issues that she's dealing with.

"Paris has been very, very depressed for a while. She's been throwing fits and tantrums, kicking and screaming and cutting herself," a source tells People magazine. "She misses her father greatly. She was the center of Michael's world and it's all different now. She says that she is lonely and that she doesn't feel loved."

Paris's grandmother and guardian Katherine Jackson seemed to echo that in her statement given to omg! yesterday, saying, "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."

Bullying may also have played a factor. When Paris appeared on "Oprah's Next Chapter" last year, she revealed she had been bullied by classmates. Now an insider tells E! News, "She has been complaining recently about feeling bullied at school. She does not have very many true friends there, and she doesn't feel like she really fits in there. She's very creatively minded and felt like an outsider. She hasn't been feeling very happy there at all." Paris and her brother Prince, seen here in 2012, are said to have been disagreeing.

And things at home haven't been picture-perfect either, which is likely why she's been trying to reconnect with her mother, Debbie Rowe, in recent months. But Paris's decision to explore that relationship is said to have strained the one with her brother Prince.

"Prince has not wanted anything to do with Debbie," an insider told E!. "He does not understand why Paris is so intent on rebuilding the relationship. He does not feel a bond with Debbie and feels like it would betray Katherine in some way. It has caused some problems between Paris and Prince. It's a very personal choice for both of them and they do not see eye to eye on it at all."

Since the incident, Prince, 16, has opted to stick close to home. Though he was going to travel to Spain to fill in for Paris on the show "Wetten, dass …?", he has canceled that appearance.
