Paris Jackson has been out of the public eye since her suicide attempt last month, and now a source confirms that it will stay that way until after the wrongful death trial of her father, Michael Jackson.

Paris, who has been under doctors' care at UCLA Medical Center for weeks, will remain at the hospital where she is receiving psychiatric evaluation. Sources tell RadarOnline.com that the decision is meant to protect the precocious teen from reading sensational headlines about her father while the trail is underway. The late King of Pop has been accused of molesting choreographer Wade Robson when Robson was seven years old. 

“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," the source says. "It’s a no brainer that Paris not have access to the Internet, cellphones and social media during the trial, since the horrific stuff she was reading about her dad pushed the teenager over the edge."

News outlets are reporting that the 15-year-old has been rejected from rehab facilities who do not want the paparazzi attention that would come with treating her, but the insider says its not true. 

The trial is expected to last until August.
