Michael Jackson's daughter Paris is "getting better", says her uncle and Michael's brother Jackie Jackson.

Paris, 15, was taken to hospital on June 5 after attempting to commit suicide. A judge later ordered in inquiry into the wellbeing of Paris and her two brothers Prince and Blanket, before concluding that the children should remain under the guardianship of their grandmother Katherine Jackson and adult cousin TJ Jackson.

Speaking on Saturday (June 29) at the premiere of a new Cirque du Soleil Michael Jackson tribute show in Las Vegas, Jackie Jackson told the Associated Press: "She's going to be OK. She's getting better."

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 led to his death in June 2009.

Jackie Jackson was joined at the Las Vegas premiere by his brothers Tito Jackson and Marlon Jackson. When asked about the family's lawsuit against AEG Live, the brothers remained tight-lipped, with Marlon saying: "We can't elaborate on that, because it's still ongoing."
