Debbie Rowe reaches out to Prince Michael Jackson

Debbie Rowe has been spending time with her biological daughter, Paris Jackson (15). Now Michael Jackson’s ex-wife is keen to make amends with her eldest child, Prince Michael Jackson.

Debbie, who was married to the late pop singer from 1996 to 1999, recently invited the 16-year-old to join her at her California ranch. But Prince Michael is not so keen to meet his mum.

“She personally made the invitation to Prince for him to go up to Palmdale at her ranch. The ranch is the perfect place for mother and son because it offers privacy from prying eyes,” a source told RadarOnline. “Prince made it known that he isn’t ready to hang out with his biological mother – just yet. He is open to the idea, but wants to do it on his terms, which Debbie understands and fully supports.”

Debbie relinquished her parenting rights in 2001. But after Michael Jackson’s death in 2009, Debbie (54) reached an agreement with the children’s grandmother, Katherine Jackson, for supervised visitation rights.
