Paris Jackson speaks out through mother Debbie Rowe

Paris Jackson is appreciative of the support she's received from fans following her suicide attempt and subsequent hospitalization, and she wants them to know it.

The 15-year-old daughter of Michael Jackson spoke out over the weekend via a message from her mother, Debbie Rowe.

"My daughter has asked that I extend a huge thank you for all your thoughts and prayers and support," Rowe tweeted on Saturday. "She is strong like her father."

Paris was hospitalized on June 5 after taking Motrin pills and cutting her arm with a kitchen knife. An attorney for her grandmother and co-guardian, Katherine Jackson, has said the teen is physically fine and getting appropriate medical attention.

"She's going to be OK," her uncle Jackie Jackson said Saturday at the premiere of the Cirque du Soleil show "Michael Jackson ONE" in Las Vegas, according to the Associated Press. "She's getting better."

Last Tuesday marked the fourth anniversary of Michael Jackson's death.
