Debbie Rowe, the ex-wife of singer Michael Jackson and mother of his children, has reportedly been diagnosed with breast cancer.
Meawhile, TMZ reports that Debbie's estranged daughter Paris doesn't know about the news, as the pair have not been in contact for over a year.
Debbie, a 57-year-old former nurse, is said to have only received the heartbreaking news recently.
She’s reportedly undergoing treatment for the condition and it’s not known what the prognosis is.
But because 18-year-old Paris cut off all ties with her mother a year ago, she wasn’t aware of Debbie’s serious condition.
The two were apparently very close after Michael died, a fact that the Jackson family were reportedly not happy with at the time.

But as Paris began to grow up, her relationship with her mother fell apart.
Debbie has reportedly said she believes the Jacksons deliberately drove a wedge between them.
The blonde was married to the King of Pop for three years, until 1999.
She had two children with the 'Thriller' singer, 19-year-old Prince, and Paris.
It is unknown who the biological mother of Blanket Jackson is.
