Paris’ tragic alleged suicide attempt may have been triggered by her rekindled relationship with her birth mother Debbie Rowe, which caused a rift between the fragile 15-year-old and brother Prince Jackson.
Paris Jackson, 15, recently reconnected with her birth mother Debbie Rowe, which reportedly caused a rift between her and brother Prince Michael Jackson before her alleged suicide attempt on June 5. The teen wanted her birth mom in her life, according to a new report — but her brother wasn’t as understanding.
Paris Jackson Reconnected With Debbie Rowe
“It’s been a very difficult time. Paris has wanted Debbie in her life…She’s a young girl and having a female mother figure has been something she has desired for as long as she can remember, but it has caused problems in the family,” a source tells E! News.
“It has caused some problems between Paris and Prince. It’s a very personal choice for both of them and they do not see eye to eye on it at all,” the insider continues. “But Paris has believed from the start that it is something that Prince will come around to, that he will change his mind as he gets older.”
The source added that the misunderstanding caused a rift in their close relationship.
“He does not understand why Paris is so intent on rebuilding the relationship. He does not feel a bond with Debbie and feels like it would betray [grandmother] Katherine Jackson in some way.”
