Paris Jackson will be in hospital for several months following her recent suicide attempt.

The 15-year-old aspiring actress, who is the daughter of the late Michael Jackson, is ''doing a lot better'' but ''has a while to go'' before she is ready to go back to her Calabasas home.

A source told E! News that the teenager is likely to continue her treatment at another facility, possibly outside of California, or might move in with her mother, Debbie Rowe.

The insider said: ''She is going to have several months to be [in the hospital], or to another facility...or she will stay a while with Debbie and have daily sessions. They are deciding now. A lot has to do with the hospital and the doctor's recommendations.

''She is not going to go back to her home immediately after getting out of the hospital. At some point, when she is ready, she will go back to her Calabasas home.''

The Jackson family is looking at out-of state options but would ''prefer for her to stay here (California) so the family can visit her more often.''

The source also confirmed that Debbie and Paris have communicating a lot during her time in hospital, saying: ''(Debbie) is talking to her every day. Debbie has basically taken the situation by the hand.''
