Paris JacksonParis Jackson has moved into a new treatment facility.

The 15-year-old aspiring actress, who attempted suicide last month, left UCLA Medical Center on Tuesday and is now staying at an undisclosed residential treatment center, where she will continue to be supervised and undergo treatment for depression. A source told People.com that the facility was chosen by Paris' grandmother and legal guardian Katherine Jackson, as well as her biological mother Debbie Rowe, who she has recently reconnected with, because they did think she was ready to return home.

"The feeling is that Paris is still a danger to herself. Both Katherine and Debbie want her to get the help that she needs," the insider added.

It was recently revealed that Demi Lovato reached out to Paris. The X Factor judge, who has a history of self-harm and whose estranged father recently died, reached out to the troubled teenager to let her know she is not alone. "With Demi having just lost her dad, she feels a special bond with Paris. She told Paris about how she'd endured horrible bullying about her weight and her looks and even nasty comments about her estranged father. That struck a chord with Paris because of her own controversial father and like Demi, she's been dieting for years.There are so few people in Hollywood who show up during the tough times but Demi is the real deal," a source said.

Michael MadsenMichael Madsen has been released from hospital.

The 54-year-old actor was taken to a medical facility after being arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI) on Wednesday, but has now been released, and his attorney Perry Wander says his prescription medication could be what caused him to appear drunk at the wheel.

"Michael has been on prescription medication that easily could have made him look to be under the influence and caused him to fail the sobriety test," Perry said.

Madsen had a blood-alcohol level of 0.21, more than twice the legal limit of 0.08, after his arrest on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu. He has been charged with a misdemeanor DUI and bail set at $15,000 and his Pontiac GTO automobile has been impounded.
