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.

Paris Jackson used to wear masks to shield her face from the media.

Now unmasked, she's appearing as a cover girl for a UK magazine.

Paris Katherine Jackson

The masks, of course, were Michael Jackson's idea - and a good one, if you ask Paris, who gushes about her late father in a revealing new interview.

“I have lots of memories of my father,’ she tells Event, the Mail on Sunday’s new magazine. “He was an incredible father. We all loved him to death.”

“He didn’t want anyone to see what we looked like,” Paris Jackson said of the masks. “So we could have what he didn’t, which was a normal childhood.”

Paris Jackson got a haircut recently. Like Miley Cyrus style, but maybe even edgier. She also got a new piercing and a tattoo, which is hopefully fake.

Michael Jackson's 14-year-old daughter showed off her provocative look - a close-cropped punk rock hairstyle, earring, ripped shirt and body art:

"Late night creativity," she tweeted to more than one million followers.

Later, sharing another photo of her new earring, she wrote, "finally!!"

While her older brother, Prince Michael, gets ready to make his acting debut on 90210 and join ET, could Paris Jackson be hoping to follow in dad's footsteps?

Either way, she's a hip gal. What do you think of her new look?

No one in Michael Jackson's family will be prosecuted over the infamous fight that went down in Jily at Katherine Jackson's home, according to reports.

MJ's kids Prince and Paris Jackson got into it with the King of Pop's sister and their aunt Janet Jackson, who was reportedly trying to snach Paris' phone.

The younger Jackson then told Janet to get the eff out.

It's hard to know for sure if Paris actually Miley'd the s--t out of her hair (a la Lena Dunham) or if she simply styled it much differently for this particular photo.

Paris Jackson, 14, is in many ways just a typical teenager.

In other ways, Michael Jackson's little girl is anything but.

The daughter of the biggest entertainer in world history spends most of her time as her peers do, navigating high school cliques, listening to music, tweeting at 3:00 a.m., etc.

But the famous offspring is ready to step into the spotlight.

Paris Jackson Glamour

Her desire to become an actress - one of the decisions that may have led to the public Jackson squabbling in July - has been met with mixed reviews in her family.

"A lot of people don't want me to do [Janet Jackson in particular does not, openly discouraging the idea, but Aunt La Toya believes in me," Paris told Glamour.

"She heard me play a little guitar and sing, and she started clapping, 'Oh my God, oh my God.' She really does encourage me; it's just awesome of her."

As for Paris Jackson defining herself while living in Michael's shadow?

"I love my dad, and I'm proud to be his daughter. I just don't think the title 'M.J.'s daughter' fits me. A lot of people think he's the only reason I'm making it ... but I want to show I do have talent and that I can make it if I try."

"I want to be my own person. The clique in my class, they don't like me or my friend because we're outside of the box. Because we're not copycats."

"Prince calls me goth, but I'm more rock 'n' roll. I listen to older music like AC/DC; Phil Collins is the ish. A ton of kids at school have made fun of me."

"If I had to give advice to other girls, I would say, 'Hang loose and ignore them. They shouldn't faze you no matter how popular they think they are.'"

Michael Jackson's kids Paris, Prince and Blanket threw out the first pitch at a minor league baseball game in Gary, Ind., along with MJ's sister La Toya.

The King of Pop's three children made the trip to their father's hometown on Thursday to celebrate what would have been Michael Jackson's 54th birthday.

Prince Michael, 15, Blanket, 10, and Paris Jackson, 14, each took the mound to kick off the Gary Southshore Railcats baseball game. Check it out:

"We're here in Gary, and it's a new experience for us. People are so nice here," Prince said. "It's amazing how much he was respected and loved."

Everywhere they go, the three kids inspire nothing but the same feelings as people see how well-adjusted and nice they are - despite all they've been through.

MJ would be proud.

T.J. Jackson is now sharing guardianship of Michael Jackson's three children along with their grandmother Katherine Jackson. This arrangement was already in effect on a temporary basis, but was just made official by a judge in court today.

T.J. will assume many of the day-to-day tasks involved in taking care of the children, including management of household personnel and security.

Prince, Paris, Blanket Jackson

T.J. has received enormous support from the family to take a guardianship role.

Katherine Jackson herself has praised T.J., as have the children, who have reportedly considered him a father figure for years. No conflict there.

The 34-year-old T.J. is Tito Jackson's son and thus a cousin to Michael's kids Prince, Paris and Blanket, despite being more than twice their age.

The judge told T.J. in court to be mindful of the giant rift currently tearing apart the family and to make sure the kids aren't adversely affected.

Four of Michael's siblings attempted to oust his estate's executors last month, while someone may have orchestrated a kidnapping of Katherine.

Tito and Jermaine Jackson later backed off their criticism of the estate, while Janet Jackson stood firm, and Debbie Rowe even weighed in on it.
