In recent months, she has reconnected with Ms. Rowe, with whom she has had little contact for most of her life.

Paris‘ uncles Tito, Marlon and Jackie echoed that sentiment in their statement Wednesday: “Thank you for the outpouring of concern and support for Paris — she is safe and doing fine. We truly appreciate you respecting our family’s privacy at this time.”

The children are listed as plaintiffs in a lawsuit filed by their grandmother against concert giant AEG Live LLC, who she claims is responsible for her son’s death. Mrs. Jackson’s lawsuit claims AEG failed to properly investigate the doctor convicted of causing the singer’s death and that it pushed the superstar to rehearse and perform a planned series of 50 comeback shows titled “This Is It.”

Paris and Prince are listed as potential witnesses in the case, which is in its sixth week of trial.

Marvin S. Putnam, a defense attorney for AEG Live, said Paris and PrinceJackson were deposed in the case because they are named plaintiffs and may be called to testify. He said Paris testimony was not a “grilling” but urged privacy for her and her family.

“There’s a real person involved here,” Mr. Putnam said. “There’s a 15-year-old girl, and something incredibly tragic has happened that none of us know why, and I think it would really be in everyone’s best interest and particularly in her best interest if rather than blowing this up into something else, that they were given a little bit of privacy to deal with something that has to be a tragic, tragic moment for all of them.”

“She’s 15,” he said. “Someone should give her a break.”
