Paris Jackson Reconnects with Mom After Breast Cancer Diagnosis

8/30/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0829_debbie-rowe-paris_jackson_gettyDebbie Rowe just found out she must undergo chemo and radiation to fight her breast cancer that was recently diagnosed -- but if there is a silver lining, it's that the illness has brought Paris Jackson back into her life.

We've learned Paris -- who went radio silent on Debbie 2 years ago -- has been spending time with her mom since we broke the story last month she's fighting breast cancer. Paris has been visiting Debbie at her ranch and Debbie has gone to Paris' home, where the 2 have reestablished their bond. They're also texting ... a lot.  

Debbie and Paris became very close after Paris' dad, Michael Jackson, died back in 2009. But a couple years ago Paris cut all ties ... wouldn't even return Debbie's calls.

We're told Debbie starts her chemo next month, and Paris is at the center of her support system.

Conrad Murray Tell-All Michael Played Dress Up to Romp With Call Girls & Strippers

7/20/2016 8:11 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0720-Conrad-Murray-michael-jackson-gettyMichael Jackson dressed up like a clown, or even faked illness, just to meet random women ... at least that's what the man who killed him is reportedly claiming in a tell-all book.

Talk about chutzpah ... Conrad Murray has written a memoir called, 'This Is It' ... in which he says he will reveal all kinds of family secrets about MJ, yet also claims he's giving him "due respect."

Some of the secrets reportedly in the book include Murray claiming Michael would put on a clown costume and then hire strippers and call girls to hang with him in hotel rooms.

Murray -- who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter -- also claims Michael would use fake accents and pretend he was a stroke victim as a ploy to meet women.

Murray was MJ's confidante -- as well as his doctor -- and reportedly writes extensively about his and Michael's frequent encounters with call girls while they were living in Las Vegas. 

Best of all, Murray claims Michael wanted him to make all these revelations. 

Murray lost his medical license after his conviction -- but clearly not his brass pair.

Paris Jackson Reconnects with Debbie Rowe In Wake of Breast Cancer

7/5/2016 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0705-paris-jackson-debbie-rowe-getty-instagram-01Paris Jackson apparently saw our story Monday -- that she's cut off all contact with her mom, Debbie Rowe, who's now battling breast cancer -- because we've learned Paris just contacted Debbie and proclaimed her love ... this according to Jackson family sources.

As we reported, Paris broke off contact with Debbie more than a year ago. We're told Paris' family was upset MJ's daughter had reconnected with Debbie after the singer's death and became close. On top of that, when Paris began acting out Debbie became the disciplinarian ... something Paris didn't like.

Debbie was diagnosed with breast cancer recently and will undergo surgery. We're told Paris texted Debbie, "I love you," and it appears the 2 will meet up after the surgery.

Hopefully, a happy ending.

Debbie Rowe Diagnosed with Breast Cancer Daughter Paris Jackson in the Dark

7/4/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

070116-debbie-rowe-tmzMichael Jackson's ex-wife has breast cancer, and their estranged daughter doesn't even know.

We've learned Debbie Rowe was diagnosed recently and will undergo surgery in the next week, but her daughter, 18-year-old Paris Jackson, has no idea because she broke all contact with her mom more than a year ago.

Rowe has all but given up on salvaging the relationship. After Michael died, Debbie and Paris got extremely close, to the point it created friction with the rest of the family.

When Paris began dealing with her own problems, the relationship fell apart. Rowe believes the family influenced their daughter and drove a wedge.

Either way, we're told Debbie is sad, but is not counting on any emotional support from her daughter.

Jermaine Jackson Wife Files for Divorce

6/23/2016 3:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0623-jermaine-jackson-halima-rashid-tmz-getty-02Jermaine Jackson's wife is filing to divorce him and predictably ... she says the trouble started the day she got busted for attacking him.

Halima Rashid filed the divorce petition on Tuesday, citing irreconcilable differences, and listing November 28, 2015 as the date of separation.

If that date sounds familiar it's because TMZ broke the story ... Halima was arrested for felony corporal injury that day. During a fight on Thanksgiving weekend, Jermaine allegedly spit on her and she allegedly bit him on the leg.

Halima is seeking spousal support. They got married in 2004, but don't have any kids together ... so no child support issues. She was wife #3 for Jermaine.

Her domestic violence case was tossed because prosecutors couldn't determine who was the aggressor in the fight.

Prince Jackson A Black Belt Won't Cover My Ass

5/28/2016 7:23 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Prince Jackson kind of scoffed at the notion a black belt proves you're a bad ass.

We got Michael's 19-year-old son Friday leaving Panera Bread in Bev Hills, and asked the jiu-jitsu enthusiast if he had his eye on a darker color.  It seems he's saying the belt doesn't protect you ... skill does.

Martial arts aside, it's always super interesting hearing Michael's kids ... by listening to Prince, you just wouldn't know.

Joe Jackson Hospitalized With Family By His Side

EXCLUSIVE

0518-joe-jackson-tmzJoe Jackson is in an L.A. hospital after his health took a turn for the worse during a routine checkup.

Sources close to the family tell TMZ Joe was scheduled for some tests with his personal doctor Friday. However, Joe became weak during the tests and struck a high fever. We're told that's when his doc admitted Joe to the hospital ... where he's been ever since.

We're told 87-year-old Joe still has a high fever, and docs can't pinpoint exactly what's wrong.

Our photog caught up with Jermaine over the weekend, and at the time he felt things were slowly improving.

Jermaine Jackson My Mom Has a Right to Michael's House

5/6/2016 3:31 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jermaine Jackson thinks the deed that was filed attempting to transfer the title of Michael Jackson's Hayvenhurst home to Katherine was kosher, because he says that's exactly what MJ wanted.

We got Jermaine Friday at Health Nut in Calabasas, and he made it clear ... his mother and siblings have big beef with the Michael Jackson Estate.

TMZ broke the story ... Katherine signed legal docs 2 weeks ago making it appear that Michael deeded the family home to Katherine and his 3 kids. Jermaine is acting like either he or his siblings might be behind it, but he never says.

Fact is ... the deed isn't valid, because the property is owned by the estate, and dead people can't transfer property.

Michael Jackson He's So Dead He Can't Give Mom the House

5/6/2016 9:52 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

506-katherine-jackson-getty-apThe estate of Michael Jackson could not be clearer -- the deed that was recorded giving Katherine Jackson ownership of the family's Encino estate is bogus to the core.

Attorney Howard Weitzman is scoffing at the deed TMZ first told you about ... filed by Katherine which gives her 25% ownership in the home, and each of MJ's 3 kids 25% as well.

Weitzman says it's laughable that the person on the deed changing the title is Michael Jackson ... who is utterly incapable of giving anything to anyone anymore. Weitzman says, "Michael's estate owns the property for the benefit of his children and Mrs. Jackson has no ownership interest."

As we reported, although Katherine signed a document attached to the deed, she may not be the mastermind, but Weitzman vows to hunt down the culprit.

Michael Jackson Someone Pulls a Fast One To Grab Michael's Home

5/6/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

505-jackson-hayvenhurst-home-apSomeone secretly filed legal documents aimed at taking Michael Jackson's Hayvenhurst family home away from his estate and deeding it to Katherine Jackson and MJ's kids.

TMZ obtained the deed which was filed with the L.A. County Recorder's Office. It claims to transfer the long-standing family home in Encino from Michael Jackson to Katherine, Blanket, Paris and Prince. According to the deed, each now has a 25% ownership interest in the home.

0505_katherine_jackson_sub_doc_launch

It's a weird, suspicious document, but we've verified with the notary public who was there when it was signed that Katherine herself put pen to paper at her home in Calabasas.

As for why it's weird ... it's handwritten, and the deed is not signed although an attachment bears her signature. What's even more hinky ... the person granting the deed is Michael J. Jackson, which is impossible because he's long dead. The estate of Michael Jackson owns the property. The document was signed April 21st and recorded 5 days later.

What we don't know ... is Katherine the mastermind of the ploy or did someone just get her to sign the attachment without telling her it would be filed with a quitclaim deed?

We've learned the estate reps had no idea this document had been filed. As we've been reporting for years, Katherine has been bent out of shape for years, claiming the estate has been stingy with her family.

For all sorts of reasons the attempt to transfer the property won't work, but it's evidence of a continuing conflict between the estate and Katherine.

Paris Jackson This Tatt's for You, Grandma

4/7/2016 6:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0407-paris-jackson-instagram-01Paris Jackson's gonna run out of skin if she keeps getting tattoos for family members -- but she reserved a special spot for granny, Katherine Jackson.

Paris got a blue flower with Mandarin Chinese lettering "Kaiselin" inked on her left wrist. She proudly announced the tatt was "for Grandma Katherine."

The new piece looks to be adjacent to the one she just got in honor of her father.

Paris is gonna have to draw a line with Jackson family tattoos at some point. She's in trouble if she gets to Jermajesty territory.

Paris Jackson Family Fears New BF is Hardcore Racist

4/7/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

040616-michael-snoddy-instagram-03Paris Jackson is dating a racist ... at least that's what some members of her family fear.

Members of the Jackson brood tell us ... Michael Snoddy's arm tattoo proudly displaying the Confederate flag is highly offensive and ironic, since Paris' dad was black.

Snoddy, a drummer with the band Street Drum Corps, is a little out of step, as some Southern states are removing vestiges of Confederate symbols from public view.

Paris, who's been dating Snoddy for a few weeks, doesn't seem to mind, but her family thinks the fact that his tat was strategically placed for all to see is an omen about his feelings toward African Americans.

We spoke with Snoddy, who scoffed at the claims and said, "I wouldn't be dating a black girl if I were a racist."

That answer might not fly with the Jacksons, so we're guessing his other defense could be he's a fan of Pantera's album, "Cowboys From Hell." Notice the "CFH" on the tat. That group used the flag on its merchandising and posters, although some members have expressed regret.

Jermaine Jackson MJ Would Have Been Team Hillary

4/1/2016 6:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Jermaine Jackson says if Michael Jackson were alive -- there's no doubt he'd be voting for Hillary Clinton ... despite Donald Trump recently bragging about his friendship with MJ.

The 4th Jackson brother was at LAX when he also said what MJ would have thought about Trump's comments regarding his botched plastic surgery.

For the record, MJ really was friends with Trump and the Clintons -- but JJ's sure which one would get his vote.
