Michael Jackson's Ex-Wife Debbie Rowe Makes Rare Appearance at Their Daughter Paris’ Performance
Michael Jackson’s ex-wife, Debbie Rowe, recently made a rare appearance at their daughter Paris’ music performance. The event also marked the first time Paris would be performing since her alleged suicide attempt.
Debbie, 60, has always struggled to stay away from the spotlight, even during her short-lived marriage to the late King of Pop, but on Saturday, the former nurse made her way to a club in Hollywood to see her daughter play.
Pictures that surfaced online show Paris cuddling up to her mother and posing for pictures while Debbie also couldn’t hide a broad grin.
Speaking to photographers with The Blast as she was about to enter the club, Debbie also admitted that she was “very proud” of her daughter.
“She [Paris] loves everybody, from The Beatles to her father [Michael Jackson]. …She’s very eclectic.”
Paris, 20, and her boyfriend Gabriel Glenn performed together under their band name “soundflowers” at The Mint, a small LA club. Their song lineup included a few original tunes as well as several covers including Jimmy Buffett’s “Margaritaville” and Bob Marley’s “Redemption Song.”
Besides Debbie, there were other famous faces there to support Paris and her beau on their big night. The singer’s older brother, Prince Jackson, her godfather, Macaulay Culkin, Chris Brown, and “Runaways” star Gregg Sulkin, were some of the other celebrities in the house.
There were rumors that Debbie never had sex with Michael...

The LA performance marks Paris’s first since she allegedly tried to commit suicide on March 16. A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department seemingly confirmed the incident to People Magazine, saying:
“At about 7:28 a.m., officers responded to the 7200 block of Hillside for an ambulance attempt suicide. The victim was transported to a local hospital.”

An insider added that Paris did have an accident “that required medical treatment,” but the singer/model vehemently denied the reports, lashing out in a now-deleted tweet: “Lies lies lies omg and more lies.”
Despite reports of her alleged suicide, Paris looked genuinely happy with her mother on Saturday, so hopefully, the young lady is getting any necessary help.

Debbie and the late music legend, Michael, tied the knot on November 14, 1996. During their marriage, Debbie, a former Dermatologist’s assistant, welcomed son Prince, now 22, and daughter Paris.
Much of Debbie’s relationship with Michael was shrouded in mystery and controversy. Besides a rushed Australian wedding that came less than a year after Michael divorce from first wife, Lisa Marie Presley, there were rumors that Debbie never had sex with Michael and was artificially inseminated.
The union was however short-lived as the couple divorced in 1999. In 2002, Michael welcomed a third child, son Prince Michael Jackson II (nicknamed "Blanket") who was born by an anonymous surrogate.
