Paris Jackson is by her cancer-stricken mother’s side during this tough time.
The 18-year-old daughter of Michael Jackson shared a heartwarming photo of herself planting a kiss on formerly estranged mother Debbie Rowe’s bare head while visiting her at the hospital as she begins chemotherapy. It was revealed in July that Rowe was diagnosed with breast cancer.
Jackson captioned the picture, “I’m a fighter because she’s a fighter. Love you mom.”
Rowe, who is also the mother of MJ’s eldest child, Prince Michael, hadn’t been photographed with her children in years. Although both Prince and Paris are both now legally adults, they were previously under the guardianship of Jackson’s mother, Katherine, following the King of Pop’s death in 2009.
Rowe was awarded supervised visitation rights with her children in an agreement with Katherine at that time.
The last time Rowe and Paris were publicly seen together was in April 2013, when the pair stepped out to grab lunch at Fire Island Grill in Palmdale, Calif., marking one of the first times the duo had been seen together in public since Paris was a baby.
However, it’s been reported that Paris got back in contact with her mother shortly after the cancer diagnosis went public.
Reports claim Paris would visit Rowe throughout her cancer battle, and the two would text each other regularly.
