Paris Jackson Shows Heartbreaking Photo Of Her CANCER STRICKEN MOTHER
Michael Jackson’s daughter, Paris Jackson has touched the heartstrings of her Instagram followers with the recent photo she posted of she and her biological mother, Debbie Rowe. Debbie has been reportedly battling cancer for a few years now and she apparently is in the midst of chemotherapy treatments as we speak.
Below is the photo Paris posted with the caption: “I’m a fighter because she’s a fighter. love you mom.”
Many were very surprised to see that Debbie was in the heart of intensive cancer treatment because after word got out that Paris had rushed to be by her side a few years ago during her cancer struggle, nothing else was mentioned about Debbie’s diagnosis, so many assumed that she was now cancer free. Also, Paris had once again distanced herself from Debbie in recent years, according to many media reports, so that also fed into the belief that Debbie was okay.
The good thing is that Debbie has her daughter by her side now and we wish her a 100% recovery. Our thoughts and prayers are with her.
As far as why Debbie decided to give away both of her children (Paris and Prince) as a “gift” to MJ (according to what she and MJ have both publicly stated), we’ll save that conversation for another day.
But just in case you’d like to know the back history of Debbie’s relationship with MJ and their children, here is a report from ABC News regarding statements Debbie Rowe gave in court:
For several years in interviews and court testimony, Rowe spoke highly of Jackson as a father and said that she had given birth to Jackson as a gift.
“I didn’t do it to be a mother. I didn’t change diapers. I didn’t get up in the middle of the night, even when I was there, Michael did it all,” she said. “We had a boom box, you know, we had the music on, and conversation, wow, here comes another one, Michael was so excited! And he brought Prince, and I said, ‘Are you sure he needs to be here?’ So, this is like, you know. And he said, ‘but this is so beautiful’.
In 2003, Rowe said that following the birth of their second child, a daughter, Paris…Jackson took the children and sent Rowe to live in a Beverly Hills mansion. “You know what Michael did? He got me the most fabulous place to live. If you read the tabloids, it’s the enclave of the enclave, Beverly Hills, which I have no idea what an enclave is, if it’s chic-chic it’s cool. I don’t know. It’s wonderful, beautiful yard, a place for my dogs to run and safe. And I went home. I recovered in my new home,” Rowe said.
In the 2000 divorce, Rowe relinquished custody. In another hearing in 2001, she relinquished parental rights. In testimony before the court, Rowe said she had little contact with the children and wanted to remain out of their lives. “I did it for him to become a father, not for me to become a mother. You earn the title parent. I have done absolutely nothing to earn that title,” she told the court.
It now seems eerie, but when lawyers asked if she had “ever considered the possibility if Michael should die, what would happen to the children,” Rowe said she trusted Jackson to pick an appropriate guardian. “I’m sure he has a wonderful person in mind to take care of them,” she told the court.
