Paris Jackson, who recently debuted a choppy short haircut and expressed hopes of becoming a heart surgeon, is coming into her own as the 15-year-old daughter of Michael Jackson.
She's also working on her relationship with her biological mother, Debbie Rowe, who signed away her parental rights to Paris and her brother, Prince, in 2001. Entertainment Tonight obtained an exclusive photo of Jackson and Rowe celebrating the former's 15th birthday at a sushi restaurant in California earlier this month. Rowe told ET that the two spent the day shopping and enjoying each other's company.
Sources told TMZ that Paris and her mother have "gotten really tight," though Rowe has had minimal contact with her daughter since she divorced Michael more than a decade ago.
Rowe met the late pop icon while working as an assistant to his dermatologist Arnie Klein, according to RumorFix. They married in Sydney, Australia in 1996, but divorced in 1999.
