Debbie Rowe and Paris Jackson have forged an unlikely but genuine bond of late.
As followers of the frequently and uniquely bizarre family saga know, the former dermatology nurse was married to Michael Jackson from 1996-1999.
She then gave MJ sole custody of Michael Joseph "Prince" Jackson Jr., 16, and Paris Michael Katherine Jackson, 15, and virtually disappeared.
Rowe, 54, took a large financial settlement and steered clear of the famous family, including after Michael's 2009 death. But recently, that all changed.
