Michael Jackson’s daughter Paris Jackson, 15, and her biological mother Debbie Rowe went to lunch together at Fire Island Grill in Palmdale, California on Sunday (April 28). Rowe, who befriended Jackson in the 1990s, agreed to bear 2 children for him (Paris and Prince) through artificial insemination. Rowe was paid an undisclosed sum of money in return for giving up her parental rights. Paris and her mother have grown close in recent months. Katherine Jackson, who has custody of Paris and her brothers Prince Michael, 16, and Blanket, 11, will be in a California court today for the start of her $40 billion negligence lawsuit against concert organizer AEG Live, who she says hired Conrad Murray, Michael’s personal physician, to make sure he got enough rest for 50 concerts planned at London’s 02 Arena. Murray is serving a 4-year sentence for causing the death of Michael Jackson with an illegal dose of surgical anesthetic in 2009. The trial is expected to last 3 months. The star-studded witness list includes singer Prince, Quincy Jones, Diana Ross, Michael’s ex-wife Lisa Marie Presley, ‘Hulk’ actor Lou Ferrigno, Rowe and Michael’s children, Prince and Paris.
