Michael Jackson's teenage daughter was 'overwhelmed' with teenage turmoil before her attempted suicide on Monday - just weeks before the fourth anniversary of her father's death.

Paris Jackson, 15, cut her wrists and took a drug overdose, according to reports. The teenager had become 'overwhelmed' with sadness over the loss of her superstar father, said a friend of the Jackson family.

In addition, sources said she was upset at not being allowed to go to a concert by goth rocker Marilyn Manson tonight.

She 'threw a fit' after being told she couldn't attend the concert and reportedly ran into her room screaming and slammed the door.

Paris is going through a difficult time and has had 'a lot going on lately', her mother Debbie Rowe said.
