Paris Jackson, 23, has broken her silence about her mother Debbie Rowe over a decade after her father Michael Jackson’s death in 2009. She opened up in an emotional chat with Willow Smith on the star’s Facebook series Red Table Talk Takeover.

During their candid chat, Willow asked what it was like having her mother come into her life at the age of 15.

Speaking about meeting her and getting to know her, Paris said: “It’s cool.

“Getting to know her, seeing how similar we are.

“Getting into what kind of music she likes and she really likes country and folk.

“I send her some of the stuff that I’m working on that has banjos in them.”

Paris also shared some images with her mother when she celebrated her birthday a few months previously.

As well as this she revealed how similar they look with a photo of her mother at her age in the 1970s.

The singer continued: “We look exactly alike. It’s just cool having her as a friend.

“It’s very chill, which I love, it’s the perfect word to describe it.”

Paris is Debbie and Michael’s daughter, along with her brother Prince.

Debbie is an American dermatology assistant who met the singer when working at Arnold Klein’s office.

This is where he was being treated for vitiligo.

The pair married in 1996 in Sydney before Debbie gave birth to their first son in February 1997 and Paris in April 1998.

However, Michael and Debbie divorced in 1999 and the singer received full custody of their children.

This meant Paris and her brother Prince lived with their father full time and didn’t know their mother.

In 2001, Debbie went before a private judge to have her parental rights terminated but attempted to reverse this decision in 2004.

Taking the stand during the 2005 People v. Jackson case, she explained she had been allowed limited visits to the children, for eight hours every 45 days.

Following Michael’s death in 2009, she reached a settlement with Katherine Jackson to have supervised visitations.

However, in recent years, it seems Paris has grown closer to her biological mother.

Elsewhere in her conversation with Willow, Paris opened up about losing her dad at a young age.

She explained: “I don’t know, it kind of just happened. I was so young.

“I was just going through the motions and didn’t really understand what was happening and so I just went with what I was told to do…

“I didn’t really have much guidance.”
