Debbie Rowe wants the kids and restraining order against Joe Jackson

By: The Superficial / July 2, 2009

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…
