Michael Jackson's teenage daughter Paris, 15, is said to be forging a relationship with her biological mother Debbie Rowe. Debbie married the late King of Pop in 1996, but allowed the pop star to have sole custody of Paris and her brother Prince, 16, when they divorced and negotiated an $8million settlement in 1999. According to People magazine, Paris is now reaching out to her mother as she navigates her difficult teenage years.

"Paris has been going through a lot of teenage angst and feels a little bit unloved," a source told the US publication. "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 [Paris's grandmother] Katherine Jackson is supportive of the developing relationship." The insider even suggested the teen could move to her mother's horse ranch in Palmdale, California, adding, "Right now Paris is happy with the situation as it is. "It's even looking like at some point Paris will want to move in with Debbie."
Paris's brother Prince, who works as a reporter for US showbiz news channel Entertainment Tonight, isn't following his sister's lead and is said to have "anger issues" because his mother "abandoned" him. When Michael Jackson died in 2009, his mother Katherine (pictured below) was awarded permanent custody of Prince, Paris and their younger brother Blanket, 11. In November 2011, she watched as a Los Angeles court convicted physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, for causing Michael's death by administering a lethal dose of the anaesthetic propofol.
The Jackson clan are currently embroiled in a wrongful death lawsuit which they brought against Anschutz Entertainment Group. The concert promoters are responsible for hiring Dr. Murray to prepare the Thriller singer for a series of comeback concerts in London.
