They looked close when they reunited earlier this month to celebrate Paris Jackson’s 15th birthday.
And it seems it wasn’t a one-off occasion, as Debbie Rowe and her daughter were spotted enjoying quality time together once again as they headed to lunch together in California on Sunday.
The pair showed they are serious about forging a real relationship with each other for the first time since Debbie signed away all parental rights to her late father Michael Jackson in 2011.

Looking like any other mother and daughter, 15-year-old Paris looked in high spirits as she left Fire Island Grill accompanied by her biological mother. Dressed in a pair of cut-off denim shorts, with Dr. Marten boots and a camouflage jacket, the young girl flashed the rock sign and a smile to waiting photographers. Completing her edgy look she wore a Kurt Cobain T-shirt, while her cropped hair fell over her eyes.
While her mother may not have the same rock chic style, simply opting for a pair of jeans and T-shirt, she too looked comfortable and at ease.
And as Debbie hopped into her car, Paris jumped into the passenger seat next to her showing that despite her rather unconventional upbringing she’s still an average teenage girl.
No doubt the pair still have plenty to catch up on as they have only been in touch following Michael’s tragic passing in 2009.
The lunch trip comes just a few days after the first picture of the pair together surfaced.

The touching image shows Debbie with her arm around Paris as they celebrated the teenager’s 15th birthday at, according to Entertainment Tonight, Ahi Sushi in Studio City, California on April 3.
Paris appeared serene and content as she leaned in close to her mother, a dermatologist’s nurse, who looked thrilled to be included in her daughter’s birthday celebration. Again Paris – the youngest of Michael and Debbie’s two children – showed off her edgy style by wearing her short dark hair swept across her forehead and highlighting her eyes with thick black liner.
However while their styles couldn’t be more different, as they showed on Sunday, the resemblance between the pair is clear, especially in the colour and shape of their eyes and their noses.
Debbie has reportedly developed an ‘intense bond’ with her daughter and the pair have been spending lots of time together in recent months. The Billie Jean singer’s ex-wife supported the teenager, who performed in a dance contest at her school in Los Angeles last weekend, turning up with a bouquet of flowers.

In a recent interview for the Mail On Sunday’s Event Magazine, Paris revealed that she had also been shopping with her mother, an activity that her grandmother Katherine Jackson was approving of.
Paris said: ‘When I’m with my mom, we don’t really have security with us. Which is really nice.’ Paris’ uncle Jermaine Jackson recently said he approved of the pair’s burgeoning relationship.
He told TMZ: ‘I think that’s wonderful. The kids need their mum. I think it’s great. That’s their mother. That’s wonderful. That’s a good thing.’
She later took things one step further in 2001, and relinquished all parental rights to the children, who were just toddlers at the time. However, after the singer’s death in June 2009, Debbie, 54, reached an agreement with Michael’s mother – who became the children’s’ legal guardian – for supervised visitation rights.
