The 18-year-old has had a tumultuous relationship with her mother, and was last seen publicly with Debbie in 2013.

Paris Jackson is supporting her mother Debbie Rowe as she battles breast cancer.

The 18-year-old daughter of Michael Jackson shared a touching photograph of herself sweetly kissing her mother's bare head while visiting her at the hospital as she begins chemotherapy.

"I'm a fighter because she's a fighter. Love you mom," Paris wrote alongside the snap on Friday (07Oct16).

Earlier that day she also tweeted a link to a YouTube video titled: 'Science Explains How Cannabis Kills Cancer Cells, accompanied by the caption: "apparently more cancer patients die from the chemo itself than from the actual cancer".

It was revealed in July (16) Debbie had been diagnosed with breast cancer, and Paris subsequently reconnected with her estranged mother. It was reported Paris has extensively visited her mother throughout her cancer battle, and the two have been texting each other regularly.

Debbie is also the mother of Michael Jackson's eldest child Prince Michael, and hasn't been photographed in public with her two children in years.

After Michael's death in 2009, the pair were under the guardianship of Jackson's mother, Katherine. Debbie was awarded supervised visitation rights with her children in an agreement with Katherine after the King of Pop's death.

The last time Debbie and Paris were publicly seen together was in April, 2013, when the pair stepped out to grab lunch at Fire Island Grill in Palmdale, California, marking one of the first times they had been seen together in public since Paris was a baby.
