Paris Jackson, daughter of the late Michael Jackson, was quick to denounce a report published Saturday morning of the celebrity’s alleged suicide attempt.

“f— you you f—ing liars,” Paris tweeted at TMZ, which reported the 20-year-old “slit her wrists” as a “direct response” to the “fallout” from Leaving Neverland, the unsettling two-part HBO documentary detailing claims of child sexual abuse against the late singer. Citing “family sources” and “law enforcement sources,” TMZ further alleged Paris was taken to the hospital and placed under a 5150 hold but was later released.

EW learned that Paris did have an incident Saturday morning that required medical attention, but she is currently at home resting and doing fine. A source further stated that any reports of a suicide attempt or a 5150 hold at a hospital are “simply untrue.”

A rep for the Los Angeles Police Department informed EW that authorities responded with an ambulance to the 7200 block at 7:28 a.m. PT and that a victim was transported to the local hospital, however police aren’t able to disclose the name of the victim in this case.

A rep for Paris declined to comment.

Leaving Neverland focused on James Safechuck and Wade Robson, who allege Jackson sexually abused them over the course of several years when they were boys. The Jackson estate called the film “tabloid character assassination” and is currently suing HBO for the apparent “breach of a non-disparagement clause” from a previous contract.

On Thursday, Paris, after fans online shamed her for not coming to the defense of her father, tweeted it’s “not my role” to defend the star over the allegations.

“there’s nothing i can say that hasn’t already been said in regards to defense,” she wrote. “[Cousin Taj Jackson] is doing a perfect job on his own. and i support him. but that’s not my role. i’m just tryna get everyone to chill out and go with the flow, be mellow and think about the bigger picture. that’s me.”
