(AP) An investigation into Paris Jackson's wellbeing has been ordered by a judge overseeing the guardianship of Michael Jackson's three children, court records show.


Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff ordered an investigator to look into Paris Jackson's health, education and welfare on Thursday, one day after she was taken by ambulance from her family's home and hospitalized.


An attorney for her grandmother has said the 15-year-old is physically fine and receiving appropriate medical treatment.


Beckloff issued a similar inquiry into the wellbeing of Michael Jackson's three children, Prince, Paris and Blanket, last year after an incident in which Katherine Jackson was out of communication with them for several days. The Jackson family matriarch had been taken by some of her children to a resort in Arizona, prompting an agreement that led to another guardian being temporarily instated.


Tito Jackson's son, TJ, was appointed co-guardian over the children.


The earlier report to Beckloff was not made public, although he has stated that he believed Katherine Jackson was doing a good job of raising her son's children.


"There have been communications between the court and counsel and we're completely supportive of the court's actions," Katherine Jackson's attorney, Perry Sanders Jr., said Friday.


He declined to offer any update on Paris Jackson's condition Friday, saying his earlier statement remained accurate.


Beckloff's order requires an investigator to prepare a report that only he will be allowed to review.


An email message sent to TJ Jackson's attorney, Charles Shultz, was not immediately returned.
