TMZ says that Michael Jackson’s ex-wife and Prince and Paris Jackson’s mommy Debbie Rowe has recently been diagnosed with breast cancer at 57. Sources say that Debbie will undergo surgery sometime in the next week, but that’s about all that’s known.
When TMZ first reported yesterday that Debbie was about to battle breast cancer, they said that Paris Jackson didn’t know and probably didn’t want to know about her mama’s medical situation. They claimed that after Michael died seven years ago, Paris got close with Debbie and that made things awkward with the Jacksons. About a year ago, Paris started going through some stuff, and eventually stopped talking to Debbie (something Debbie thinks the Jacksons were responsible for). Basically, things got messy, which isn’t exactly surprising when you’re talking about the Jacksons. TMZ says Debbie hadn’t spoken to Paris in over a year, and she was sad that she wouldn’t have her daughter by her side for emotional support while she went through her breast cancer fight.
However, today TMZ is taking an eraser to their original story and rubbing out that part about Paris deleting her mama from her life. Sources close to the Jacksons (probably Tito?) tell TMZ that shortly after Paris found out that Debbie had been diagnosed with breast cancer, she texted her mom “I love you.” The source sort of elaborates on what broke Paris and Debbie’s relationship; apparently Debbie had rules and Paris didn’t like that. The source goes on to say that Paris plans on getting together with Debbie after her surgery.
Whatever happened, I’m glad that it sounds like Paris and Debbie might have put it behind them. And if any of those Jacksons try to make trouble for Debbie and Paris on the day they reunite, I hope Debbie is lucid enough to buzz for the head nurse. If there’s anyone who can bust up some drama, it’s an “I’ve been working too many hours to put up with your nonsense” nurse.
