Paris Jackson and her biological mother Debbie Rowe spent Saturday getting to know each other at a horse ranch in Temecula, California.
Showing just how close they are becoming, Paris Jackson, 15, chose to be with Debbie Rowe, 54, rather than her grandmother and guardian Katherine Jackson, who was celebrating her 83rd birthday.
Debbie Rowe and Paris Jackson spent a large chunk of the day together, as they followed up the pony-scouting with a bite to eat with the owners of the ranch, in the countryside almost two hours away from Paris’ home.
Laughing Paris Jackson appeared comfortable in the company of her mother, who signed away all legal rights to her and her siblings in 2001.
Debbie Rowe looked to be right at home on the ranch, Bricker Performance Ponies.
The former dermatologist’s assistant now lives in the countryside in Palmdale, California, and has been seen visiting rodeos of late.
Paris Jackson was stylishly clad in her usual alternative attire: cutoff denim shorts and a tank, with her pixie locks at times held back in a red beanie.
She added a pair of western style cowboy boots to go with the theme of the day.
It seems she got her style from her late father, Michael Jackson, rather than her mother.
Debbie Rowe was comfortably though not exactly stylishly clad in baggy jeans, a blue long-sleeved top and flip-flops, with her blonde tresses unkempt.
The owners of the ranch looked to be rather star struck by the visit, smiling graciously as they toured the pair around the property.
They then joined Paris Jackson and Debbie Rowe for sushi, despite the fact that it was Paris’ grandmother’s birthday that very day… almost two hours away, back in West Los Angeles.
After Michael Jackson’s sudden death, Paris and her brothers Prince and Blanket were placed under court-mandated guardianship of their cousin T.J. Jackson and 83-year-old grandmother Katherine.
Though Debbie Rowe has been absent from the children’s lives and shockingly said in the past that: “My kids don’t call me mom because I don’t want them to,” it appears she may be determined to forge a real relationship with Paris Jackson.
