Rowe a No-Show at Jackson Memorial

7/6/2009 3:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Debbie Rowe Michael Jackson's ex-wife Debbie Rowe won't be attending Jackson's memorial service at the Staples Center tomorrow.

Her attorney sends us this statement:
"The onslaught of media attention has made it clear her attendance would be an unnecessary distraction to an event that should focus exclusively on Michael's legacy. Debbie will continue to celebrate Michael's memory privately."

Mourning in private will be the best thing for her. It sure beats her getting hounded and harrassed by the many people who are constantly asking 'are you going to fight for the kids?'. Leave the woman alone for now and let her grieve. Let her get her mind cleared before the cameras continue to get in her face.

That doesn't mean I support Debbie's decision on what she did to her children, just saying give the woman some air and quit harping all over her when she's out in public.

Apparently she wasn't fast enough on Ebay to score a ticket. Ebay is now removing any and all sites selling the memorial tickets. So much for free enterprise! They must think this event is too important to allow scalpers to make a buck. JERKS!!

I don't blame Her for not wanting to get caught under the Big Top of this Circus....

It is funny, I thought the Media would make a Circus of all of this..
But It is MJ's Own Family who have done that,,,, Even Momma Jackson has got in to
all of this , I am so surprised to See that She is Only inrested in MJs Money....

She never planned on attending his memorial service. This is just one more PR stunt.
No wonder he only trusted children.
Look at the bloodsuckers in his own family!

WTF    

She's doing the right thing. Every surrogate gets paid to do their job... I wish people would stop criticizing her for it. She gave more to MJ than anyone.

I feel that her presence at a memoriel would disrespect MJ's life and make him a mockery of the common people who love him and do not caree about the things he did wih kids because music overcomes all and he was the voice of god aand we were lucky to have witness trhe shine of his star and

Sad. Even MJ's attorney said he always liked Debbie Rowe, and thought she was good for Michael.

Yet, his father, who was more concerned about promoting his new record label and talking about the talented singers he had than in remembering his son. Sorry Reverend Al, it don't float that he was distressed and taken out of context. Besides that, it's a little hard for us New Yorkers to believe anything you say, we all remember Tawana Browley and the made up rape and assault that you were involved in.

Michael must be spinning.

The bottom line for me is --if she really cared about those kids she would show up at the memorial. Instead she is clearly all about herself. Very telling.

You Need to Read the court Hearing today,,,
It was sad to Hear that MJ Momma is just as much of a Monney Grubber as Joe....

Debbie will get the Children,,Well Her 2 anyway,,

The Jacksons only want the kids for their 40%,... I didn't not believe that yesterday
But todays day in court has changed my mind about Mrs Jackson

BURY YOUR SON BEFORE YOU PICK HIS BONES>>>

Had she waited till after the memorial to state her "possible custody" battle, she would have been able to go without being a distraction. Give her credit for realizing that she would now be a distraction during this memorial for Michael Jackson.

This women is NO mother. She does not deserve her kids. HOW can ANY mother say that she does not want her kids, is disgusting. Debbie Rowe needs to crawl back under the rock from which she came.
