Paris Jackson Has Reportedly Been Seeing Her Birth Mother Debbie Rowe

Paris Jackson’s childhood sounds, in many ways, like the plot of an over-the-top Disney movie. Her loving, well-intentioned and eccentric father, Michael Jackson, occasionally forced her to wear a mask. Her utterly bizarre clan of extended relatives allegedly tried to kidnap her, and since the age of three, she hasn’t had any contact with her birth mother, at least until recently.

According to TMZ, Paris and Debbie Rowe have started to reestablish a bond broken more than a decade ago. They’ve met more than a few times in secret, and the fifteen-year-old reportedly spent part of her birthday with her birth mom last week. To most of us, rekindling that connection would probably seem weird, but compared to the normal nonsense the Jackson family gets up to, the relationship seems downright ordinary.

Exactly what happened between Paris’ father Michael and Debbie has been shrouded in mystery for years. The two were married for awhile, and she gave birth to Paris and Prince. They divorced eleven years ago, however, and Debbie gave up all of her parental rights in the divorce. That almost never happens, but once again, members of the Jackson family swagger to the beat of their own drummer.

At this juncture, there’s no way to know whether either woman will be able to get what she’s looking for out of the other, but hopefully, the two are able to establish at least some kind of lasting bond.
