After his sister Paris Jackson attempted to commit suicide, Prince Michael Jackson opted out of appearing on the German TV show "Wetten, dass ... ?"

Fortunately there are no hard feelings over his absence. A rep for the German TV station ZDF tells People that they have been in touch with Prince Michael's management.

"Under these circumstances, we perfectly understand that Prince Michael prefers to stay close to his family," the rep says. "We wish Paris the strength and the power to recover soon."

Originally it was Paris who was supposed to be appearing on "Wetten, dass ... ?," which is filming its summer edition in Mallorca, Spain, but Prince Michael elected to fill in for her instead. Paris is said to be recovering well in a California hospital.
