Paris Jackson, who is in hospital after a suicide attempt, will reportedly remain in psychiatric treatment until Michael Jackson's wrongful death trial is over.

The 15-year-old was hospitalised last month for cutting her wrist with a knife. She is currently being treated at the UCLA Medical Centre in California.

But according to reports, the doctors want her to remain in treatment until the end of the trial as they want to keep her away from sensational headlines, the Radar Online reported.

"Paris is doing better and her doctors at UCLA are still researching where she should go after being discharged. It's being recommended by her docs that she remain in treatment and in a safe, controlled environment until the end of the wrongful death lawsuit ends," a source told the website.

"It's a no brainer that Paris not have access to the internet, cell phones, and social media during the trial, since the horrific stuff she was reading about her dad pushed the teenager over the edge," the source added.

The lawsuit, filed by Jackson's family, accuses the concert promoter AEG of being responsible for his death by putting too much pressure on him for his comeback tour in 2009.

They blame AEG for hiring Conrad Murrey, who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter for giving the singer propofol, whose overdose killed Jackson. Murrey is currently serving a four-year sentence for involuntary manslaughter at a Los Angeles County Jail.

AEG, however, claims Jackson himself was responsible because he hired Murray.
