Paris Jackson reached out to her mother because she was feeling ''unloved''.
The 15-year-old daughter of the late singer Michael Jackson has been spending time with her biological mother Debbie Rowe, who gave up all parental rights to Paris and her brother Prince Michael, 16, when they were younger, and her family are relieved it seems to have given the teenager a sense of stability.
A source told People: ''Paris has been going through a lot of teenage angst and feels a little bit unloved. So about three months ago Paris reached out to her mother and told her she wanted to establish a relationship with her. Debbie was open to it, and [Paris' grandmother] Katherine Jackson is supportive of the developing relationship.
''Right now Paris is happy with the situation as it is.''
Paris has spent time on Debbie's ranch in Palmdale, Califorina, helping with her horses and has loved spending time away from Los Angeles.
The source added: ''She's enjoyed telling friends how she's helping take care of a pregnant mare on the ranch, and even how she was recently chased by a chicken.''
However, Prince Michael has not been so quick to reconcile with his mother.
The insider explained: ''He has anger issues with her. He feels like she abandoned him years ago.''
Paris and Prince Michael's have one other sibling, Blanket, 11, but the identity of his mother is unknown.
