Paris Jackson has reportedly been spending a lot of time with birth mom Debbie Rowe. Her brother Prince Jackson, not so much.

Most teenage boys don't have much time for their moms. Prince Michael Jackson, 16, who grew up without birth mom Debbie Rowe, is no exception.

TMZ reported today that though 15-year-old Paris Jackson has a "passion" for getting close to her bio-mom now that dad Michael Jackson has passed on, her brother doesn't share her interest.

He reportedly doesn't have a problem with Rowe, or with the relationship between her and Paris. He's just not interested.

TMZ writes that Rowe is very interested in bonding with Jackson, but she wants any relationship to develop slowly and naturally, the same way it came about with Paris.

The New York Post notes that Rowe, who gave birth to both Paris Jackson and Prince Michael Jackson I (but not Prince Michael II, or Blanket, the youngest brother in the trio of siblings), signed her parental rights away to Michael Jackson in 2001.

Since then her contact with the kids has been sporadic.

But with dad Michael Jackson passing away in 2009, that left a hole in the Jackson family. For Paris Jackson, at least, Rowe has stepped in to fill the gap in her life spending "a good deal of time together in the last few months," according to TMZ.

The New York Post notes that Rowe came to watch Paris Jackson perform in a dance show at the Buckley School, where both Paris and Prince Michael go to school.

Paris tweeted after the show, "closing night was great ! everyone was incredible i love you guys so much and thank you to all the people who came out to see us!"
