USA TODAY - She scarcely grew up with her, but now Paris Jackson is spending time with her mom, Michael Jackson's ex Debbie Rowe, TMZ is reporting.
Mother and daughter spent Paris' 15th birthday together on Wednesday. "The two just hung out," a source tells the website. "They've gotten really tight."
MJ and Rowe, 54, divorced a year after Paris was born, two years after Prince's birth. When her daughter was three, Rowe gave up her parental rights, according to TMZ. The pair barely saw each other.
But it seems a bond is growing, if quietly. "Debbie has gone out of her way to keep the meetings on the down-low because she doesn't want to create an appearance that she's exploiting their relationship," says TMZ.
Of course, with the name Jackson attached, a whiff of potential scandal is never far behind. "One source says Debbie could have made a lot of money off the meetings, but wouldn't even consider it."
