Paris Jackson & Debbie Rowe: Lunch Date

Paris Jackson & Mother Debbie Rowe Out For Lunch In Palmdale

Aspiring actress Paris Jackson, 15, and her biological mother Debbie Rowe were spotted together out for lunch at Fire Island Grill in Palmdale, Calif. on Sunday ( April 28). After their get together, Paris posted a photo via Instagram with the caption, “<3.”

For years, Rowe, Michael Jackson‘s ex-wife and also the mother of 16-year-old Prince Jackson, was out of the picture. The former dermatology nurse – who was married to Jackson from 1996 to 1999 – gave her popstar husband sole custody of the kids in their divorce settlement. 

Rowe was awarded $8 million in the settlement and, except for occasional visits with her children, did not have contact with the famous family. She settled in Palmdale, about an hour outside Los Angeles.

But now, during Jackson’s multi-million dollar wrongful death trial, Rowe has resurfaced, and sources say she is becoming close to her long-lost daughter.

In recent weeks, Rowe has been spotted with Paris Jackson – watching her perform in her school play, taking her out to lunch, and hosting her at her Palmdale ranch. Once alienated from her former in-laws, Rowe has the blessing of Paris’s grandmother, Katherine Jackson, who sees her as a good influence.

“Paris has been going through a lot of teenage angst and feels a little bit unloved,” a source tells PEOPLE. “So about three months ago Paris reached out to her mother and told her she wanted to establish a relationship with her. Debbie was open to it, and Katherine Jackson is supportive of the developing relationship.”

“She’s enjoyed telling friends in L.A. how she’s helping take care of a pregnant mare on the ranch, and even how she was recently chased by a chicken,” the insider adds.

“Right now Paris is happy with the situation as it is,” says the source. “It’s even looking like at some point Paris will want to move in with Debbie.”

But big brother Prince has not embraced their biological mother.

“He has anger issues with her,” shares the source. “He feels like she abandoned him years ago.”

Rowe is not the mother of Jackson’s third child, Blanket, 11, who was born to a still-unidentified surrogate mother in 2002.

    Abandoned is an understatement. This woman sold two children to Michael Jackson. She is sick. Who does that? And then to make it worse, he dies and then she doesn’t fight for her kids, she leaves them with these people who are not their true relatives. Disgusting.

    Leaves them with these people? Those “people” are her grandmother, cousins etc.

    On a better note, I’m so happy that Paris is having a relationship with her mother and yes she is gorgeous!

    Debbie really packed on some lb’s huh?

      i think if i had to watch my children’s hearts breaking because their other parent had died (all in the public eye no less), and then watched the media circus that ensued, i’d probably gain some weight too.

      i am also glad that Paris has an opportunity to have a relationship with her mother. obviously i have no idea why her mother chose to sign over her custodial rights, but i am hopeful that it was with her children’s best interests at heart at that time–she never sold them down the river with a tell-all book or did any famewhoring that i’m aware of, despite a huge opportunity to do so.

    It would be nice too to see Prince with his mom as well.

      I agree, but it’s been said Debbie doesn’t want to put pressure on him..that she wants it to happen naturally if it does. Prince seems to be more reserved, while Paris is more emotional.

    My opinion is that Debbie Rowe was a surrogate, and only meant to be a surrogate. Michael Jackson married her because he wanted to pretend that he had children the “traditional” way. Michael Jackson stated that he took the babies home straight after the birth, leaving Debbie in the hospital. She was never around the kids even when they were married, except for a few photo ops. But because she is a surrogate doesn’t mean she cannot be important in Paris’ life, just like any surrogate mother to the babies they carried in their bellies :)
