Paris Jackson has reconnected with her birth mom in the wake of the news that she is battling breast cancer.
Michael Jackson's daughter had been totally in the dark about Debbie Rowe's diagnosis until it was reported in the news. However, after getting word, she reached out and even proclaimed her love to her mother, according to TMZ.
The oft-credible website said Paris texted Debbie, "I love you," and the two made plans to get together after Debbie undergoes surgery within the next week.
The two had been on the outs for quite some time after Paris broke off contact. The teen became upset with Debbie after her mother became a bit of a disciplinarian during Paris' somewhat wild days, which led her to Alcoholics Anonymous.
Additionally, many in the Jackson family were upset that Paris had become close with Debbie after Michael suddenly passed away in 2009. In 2014 Debbie wanted to become the guardian or Paris and her brothers Prince and Blanket. The Jackson family was fairly incredulous to this.
In a statement at the time, Michael's brothers Tito, Randy, Jermaine and Jackie said, "[The children] are well loved and well taken care of. We are quite taken back [sic] that Ms. Rowe has decided now to enter their lives, after she abandoned her children many years ago for money."
On the day that Paris found out about Debbie's diagnosis, she posted a spiritual photo to Instagram, although it's not known if it is related to her birth mother's health battle.
"We are changing from the inside out let go of all fears & open your heart to balance your physical & spiritual aspects of self," the post said.
Last month, Paris was even more reflective on Instagram, opening up about the "self-hatred" and "dark past" that she once had.
In a photo showing her tattoos on her arms, Paris said, "The craftsmanship of tattoos will always be a controversy. Some people like them, some people absolutely hate them. I appreciate art, I always have. especially when that art means something to me."
"Today I can look at my inner forearms and see art that has meaning for me, I don't see a dark past anymore," she continued. "My scars and past of self-hatred have been covered by loving marks, creativity, ingenuity.. and depth."
Rocking platinum blond hair and a Motley Crue T-shirt, Paris wrote, "Sure I will always carry my past with me, but I see ink as a way of changing for the better, always improving. They represent strength for me. I look back at my old self and then I look in the mirror, and I see a fighter looking back at me."
"I'll always keep fighting, and encouraging others to stay strong," she continued. "We all go through hell every now and then but it makes us the warriors of love we were meant to be. So to anyone struggling, it gets better. You're not alone."
