A judge overseeing the guardianship of Michael Jackson's three children has ordered in inquiry into Paris Jackson's wellbeing following her suicide attempt last Wednesday (June 5).

According to Billboard, court records show that the judge's order was made on June 6, the day after the 15-year-old tried to take her own life. An investigator has been tasked with looking into Paris's health, education and welfare before recommending whether any changes are necessary.

The lawyer of Katherine Jackson, Paris's grandmother, confirmed: "There have been communications between the court and counsel and we're completely supportive of the court's actions." He also said the 15-year-old is physically fine and undergoing medical treatment but declined to comment any further on her current health status.

According to TMZ, who first reported the suicide attempt, Paris was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital at 2am local time on June 5. An unconfirmed source told the US gossip website that Paris had multiple cuts to one of her wrists.

The website also claims a source close to the family said Paris "threw a fit" the night before, after being told she couldn't go to a Marilyn Manson and Alice Cooper concert at the Gibson Amphitheatre on June 6.

Paris Jackson and her brother Prince are due to testify in the family's £26 billion lawsuit against concert promoters AEG Live. The family claims the concert promoter was neglectful when it hired doctor Conrad Murray, who gave Michael Jackson the overdose of sedative Propofol that lead to his death in June 2009.
