Michael Jackson's daughter Paris needed rushing to hospital after taking 20 Motrin painkillers and cutting herself with a kitchen knife, the audio recording of the emergency call has revealed.

The one-minute recording of a dialogue between a Los Angeles County Fire Department dispatcher and a sheriff's department dispatcher, who was relaying information from the Jackson family house, has now been released. During the call, Paris is described as conscious and breathing but no other details about her condition or the circumstances surrounding her suicide attempt are revealed.

Paris Jackson was rushed to hospital at around 2am local time on June 5 following what was later confirmed to be a suicide attempt. According to TMZ, the website which broke the story, 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.

A judge has since ordered an inquiry into Paris's wellbeing and the lawyer of Katherine Jackson, Paris's grandmother, later 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.

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.
