Playing EXCLUSIVE: Debbie Rowe to Undergo Chemotherapy for Cancer, Says Daughter Paris Jackson Is Her Rock

Debbie Rowe is preparing for her chemotherapy treatments.

The ex-wife of Michael Jackson, who was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this summer, tells ET that she will be undergoing six treatments of chemo, once every three weeks, followed by radiation everyday for five weeks. And thankfully, it's not a fight the 57-year-old has to go through alone.

Debbie tells ET that her daughter, Paris Jackson, is her rock and a tremendous support throughout this whole process. The 19-year-old actress and her mom have been in constant contact since Debbie's diagnosis in July, when ET learned that the two had reconnected.

Meanwhile, it's been an emotional time for the family, who spent Monday honoring what would have been the late King of Pop's 58th birthday.
