Paris Jackson has posted a picture with her mother from Hawaii.

The 15-year-old star - daughter of the late Michael Jackson - has become increasingly close to her biological mother, Debbie Rowe, over the course of a turbulent year in her life, and posted the photo of them together enjoying a family Christmas break on the Pacific island.

She wrote underneath the picture on Instagram: ''Momma :)''

Paris has left her $14,000-per-month therapeutic private school in Utah - where she is recovering from an apparent suicide attempt in June - to be with Debbie, her brother Prince Michael, 16, half-brother Blanket, 11, and their cousins Jermajesty and Jaafar Jackson.

A source told Debbie ''spent Christmas Eve and day with Paris. The two have spent significant time together during Paris' break from school.''

Debbie originally lost contact with her children after divorcing Michael in 1999, but has been getting closer to them over the last year, with the blessing of the Jackson family.

Paris' grandmother, Katherine - one of her legal guardians - has previously spoken about her intensive treatment and insisted she is ''doing much better''.

She said: ''She is in a good place, getting the help she needs. She is doing much better.

''The treatment is going good, really good. She's my baby. It's hard for me, really hard. All I want these kids to be is happy.''
