Michael Jackson's brother Jermaine has spoken out about his niece Paris' suspected suicide attempt - saying it would help the teenager to have "more discipline".

Paris is said to have attempted to take her own life after being told she couldn't go to a Marilyn Manson concert.

Jermaine told TMZ: "Paris has to learn there are certain guidelines when you grow up being a teenager. There are rules."

Without specifying who around Paris he was talking about, he said: "I just think that... things could have been enforced a little stronger."

Michael Jackson's 15-year-old daughter was taken to hospital last month following the suspected suicide attempt.

Paris, who has been in a treatment centre since being admitted to the psychiatric facility at UCLA Medical Centre in Los Angeles in June, recently thanked fans for their support, via her mother Debbie Rowe.

Prince of Pop Michael died four years ago.
