Debbie Rowe wants the kids and restraining order against Joe Jackson

July 2nd, 2009 // 59 Comments

Debbie Rowe has thrown down the gauntlet and plans to seek custody of Michael Jr. and Paris who she maintains are her biological children. NBC Los Angeles reports:

“I want my children,” Rowe said during a 90-minute phone conversation Thursday morning with NBCLA’s Chuck Henry.
She said she would seek a restraining order to keep Jackson’s father, Joe Jackson, away from the children. The agreement does allow for visitation, but Rowe said it’s a very difficult process. She said if she misses a visitation date, it is difficult to reschedule with the Jacksons.
“I am stepping up,” Rowe said. “I have to.”
Rowe said she was still grieving. She said she decided she had to seek custody after Jackson’s death.
“We had an agreement… he didn’t keep his end,” Rowe said, referring to Jackson’s death.
Rowe said she was concerned about splitting up the children. She said she did not expect the court to grant custody of the third child, but added that she would be willing to accept custody.

Okay, I understand Debbie wants to be with her children, but she’s overreacting a little bit over Joe Jackson. I mean, once you look past the facial mutilation and pedophilia, Michael Jackson grew up to be one of the most influential musicians of a generation. Who died at 50 from a fatal addiction to medication specifically reserved for knocking out people for surgery. But, again, besides that stuff…

    She gave up her kids. She gave up her rights to call herself their mother. And now she thinks it is in the best interest of the children to separate two from the the youngest? She is up in the night. Sorry Deb, but the court will give them to Joe before they did that.

    I guess she decided those kids would be her meal ticket…… shameless cunt.

    She is just the biological mother and never had any real involvement with the kids, based on which she should not be entitled to custody. However, if her sole purpose of getting custody is so that she can protect the kids from Joe Jackson (and by this save the kids from similar treatments that MJ had as a child), I completely support her!

    Superficial writer,
    I usually appreciate your bitingly sarcastic remarks about moronic celebrities and find it a rare occurrence that I take offence to your posts. Unfortunately, this one is truly in bad taste. Michael Jackson is dead; no one has confirmed the cause. Stop the speculation.. didn’t he face enough of that in his life time? Leave him alone. Taboo.

    Laugh at Debbie Rowe. What a beauty…

    My God! I know that man! He sold me a white SUV with 4WD when I specifically said 2WD. Fucking Rednecks.

    The question to ask is: ‘Who put out the story that she did not want the kids?’

  10. Darth

    Hola?

  11. costamar

    God, are you sure that’s not Hulk Hogan in drag?

  12. Isn’t Joe Jackson about 100 now? Surely those kids could kick his ass even if he was a boxer at one time.

    First of all, those kids would be better off being parented by those leechy, zerg overmind, alien looking things in the NC sewer system than to be “raised” by fucking Joe Jackson. Sadly, no one intervened on behalf of Michael Jackson or any of the Jackson kids when their father was abusing them physically and mentally their entire childhood and beyond. Michael Jackson knew better than to let his kids be raised by the same man that he had to endure til his dying day. And I’m sure Katherine Jackson was just as equally squashed under Joe Jackson’s thumb but she was their mother and she did nothing to stop the abuse. So, give them to Debbie Rowe. They will never have any semblance of a normal life but letting them be around Joe Jackson would be a double travesty.

    As for her mongering for money, Michael Jackson left her nothing in his will and she willingly was surrogate for him. The “end of the deal” she was talking about was Jackson not staying alive to provide for his kids. She feels she should step up then. Fine. It’s up to the executors of his will to determine how much the kids get from the Michael Jackson Family Trust Fund, I guess. But Michael deliberately did this. Maybe like most other trust funds, the kids won’t be able to touch the money until their 18 or 21 or the like. Till then, Debbie Rowe can raise them under her own finances if she really wants that. Hell, no amount of money would be enough for me to raise three “kids” of the most scrutinized and celebrated persona of the last century. I say give them to her.

    And, once again, fuck Joe Jackson. If the universe was fair, it would have been him and not Michael to leave this world.

    Speaking of Bubbles the Chimp…maybe Michael Jackson’s face was so fucked up because the Chimp ripped it off like that Old Navy Chimp in Connecticut. ‘Member that shit?

  18. doesn't matter

    Okay, the sad part is that the choices are between a lady that gave her children away to Michael Jackson ( who a lot of people believe was a pedophile and a bit crazy) for some money or the parents who raised (abused) MJ and we all see how that turned out? Not very good choices, if you ask me! However, they have been raised by MJ himself, so either one might be a step up…Who really knows?

  19. This is going to be endless entertainment…This bestial of a woman had an agreement didnt she?

  20. Still taking a wide stance Douchie?

  21. hellnurse

    Go get your kids Debbie!! They need to be raised by you now. And they need you now more than ever.

  22. joe jaskson you are and asshole all your life .ha ha ah diddie the mammy. p.s chimip is that the father. just bet it.

  23. Joe is just trying to make a new family band everyone!!! We all know that the only way MJ became a musical genius was Daddy Joe’s beatings and screaming…. he’s a saint really. What the hell MJ’s kids are the perfect way for him to:
    #1Get his filthy hooks on unearned money
    #2 Exploit and abuse those kids too
    #3 Make the “New Jackson 3″

  24. Cher

    You are one funny mother. I read you everyday.

  25. Iona Knipple

    Where does it say she gave up her parental rights willingly? Maybe she was somehow forced or encouraged to do so, and later regretted it. Not saying she’s the best, but she should be a contender for custody.

    SHE NEEDS TO SHUT UP AND GET LOST!!

    Michael Jackson wrote clearly in his will that he wants his children to have nothing to do with this woman and she is to not have any sortof custody whatsoever. She was the surrogate and that was it- she did her partof the deal, and she has not been in the children’s lives at all. Why now? PUBLICITY. Come on, lady.. get a life.

  33. Sophie

    Joe Jackson is a disgraceful money leeching abusive human being. He abused and manipulated Michael, as well as the rest of the Jacksons throughout and beyond their childhoods. He whipped his children with belts and metal chords whilst they rehearsed as the Jackson 5. Even now when asked about his “grief” for his son’s death he tried to publicise his new record label. If anything, he is fully responsible for Michael’s mental disposition and therefore his untimely demise. And honestly, i think this goes beyond something you can use for satire and comedy, these children’s quality of life are endangered.

    As for Debbie, i watched her interview on “living with michael jackson: take two” She hadn’t spoke about any of their arrangement’s or their relationship completely and publically before and once she had spoken i began to understand the situation. She seems a good person, and with the knowledge that there is no money in it for herself and she is even willing to take on the other child, which would ruin her own life through the media downpour is a completly selfless act and so vital for them children. I believe she would be a fit mother and the children would be in MUCH better care than with Joe. Also, there were comment’s about him being to old to abuse them, mental abuse is just bas bad for vulnerable children, he could still take advantage and market them to the media easily at their age. So Debbie, go for it and make sure they have NO contact with their grandfather.

  34. Yeah you can tell BWB has no scruples what so ever! he’s one of those characters that would renege on a contract, just like Debbie (womb4rent) Rowe..

  35. Sophie

    ALSO, #32 Michael never spoke of not letting his children near her. She gave up custody as a ‘gift’ to him, she walked away from the relationship because she couldn’t deal with the lack of privacy and mental media exposure, and has proclaimed that she will always be there for her children, beyond legal document. So therefore, as there is absolutely nothing in it for her but for the wellbeing of the children, this is a selfless act. And the “publicity” you speak of her wanting, is the only reason she walked away from him. So that makes no sence. Do your research before you say something like that.

    I haven’t seen a posting related to what is best for the kids….they don’t know who this woman is, they are use to a certain lifestyle that I’m sure she can not provide. To take them away from the people who were there for them from birth to now would be devastating to them. I’m a firm believer in just cause they came out your vag doesn’t make you a mother. A woman has to EARN the title of mother and so far she has not. Those poor kids are probably terrified of the thought of going with,what to them is a, complete stranger. No one seems to be thinking about that…not even ms.rowe! She is doing worse by them if she takes them out of their environment (as wierd as it may seem). And aren’t they old enough to tell the court whom they would like to live with? And also isn’t MJ’s mother and father seperated or divorced? They live seperately so they wouldn’t be raised by joe jackson anyways.

    Superficial writer,

    I totally agree with Boba. I’ve thus far enjoyed reading your site and your sarcastic wit but there is a fine line between that and being a complete and utter jerk. MJ had to deal with enough shit in his lifetime. The least you could do is let him rest in peace.

  42. How do you manage to make some great points while you battling ants in your panties #36 though 40…

    Debbie Rowe having those kids was purely a business transaction. That ranch she lives on? Do you think it was paid for by her ‘dermatologist’s assistant’ job? Michael Jackson paid her millions to knock out those two kids and then NOT be involved afterwards and she took that paycheck willingly, never looked back and never made a peep when he was accused of pedophelia. Obviously, she’ll never have to work again. With the third kid, Michael wizened up and got some anonymous surrogate who didn’t know who she was conceiving for.

    So now, all of the sudden, the kids are up for grabs and Rowe’s all over it? I don’t believe for a second she’s being altruistic. She’ll get a ton of money for those kids and she can hire nannies with all that doe so she doesn’t have to even look at them. She’s a complete stranger to them and the idea that she has any right to parent them is laughable.

    That being said, Joe Jackson obviously fucked up his kids royally. They should stay in the Jackson family but NOT with Joe. Can Janet take them or something? Or what about Jermane or one of the other brothers who has kids their age?

  44. Burungi

    Ahh, just read in an earlier post that MJ’s parents are separated. If that’s the case, they should be staying with the grandmother they know and love.

  45. Gary B

    I”m ust waiting for all the fraked up stuff Jacko did and hid behind lawyers and non disclosure agreements to finally come out as all these people write books and make docos to squeeze one last cent out of the wacko jacko. We can call it the “Wacko Jacko Fiasco.”

  46. Photoshop Police

    The story going around is that the sperm donor and egg donor for Michael’s kids were neither Debbie Rowe nor Michael Jackson, and that Debbie Rowe was just a surrogate for the pregnancy.

    If this is the case, does she even have a legal leg to stand on for custody?

  47. polly

    Anyone else notice that she looks like a middle-age Mrs. Doubtfire?

  48. Oh wow! this is heartbreaking. My heart aches for those kids. Debbie or Joe Jackson what a choice. It would be better if one of his siblings take the kids at But since this is not an option. if I had to choose between Joe jackson any where near those kids give them to the mother!. Sorry Katherine you allowed this monster to destroy Michael while you watched, and made excuses! The last thing they need is to be placed in more harms way!
