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."

Oh pleez    

Please don't write anything derogatory. The very fact that she realizes
her presence would be distracting and that she will not attend is proof
of honoring Mr. Jackson. Focus instead on what you LEARNED from him,
not your opinions that are fueld by hate and ignorance. He would never
have wanted to know some of you...

I don’t really understand the hang-up about interracial parenting. If you’re a good parent, you’re a good parent… right? Does it really matter if your skin color matches your child’s skin color?

YOU SHOULD BE DEAD FOR SAYING SOMETHING LIKE THAT RACIST COMMENT RIGHT THERE...MAYBE SHE KNEW WHAT SHE WAS GOING INTO, AND THERE WAS A SECRET CONTRACT FOR THE KIDS, BUT THAT IS JUST WRONG AND RACIST.

As a spouse of MJ's, why wouldn't Debbie Rowe attend the private family service. Are the Jacksons that delusional that a spouse doesn't matter. I bet family friends will be there. What will that say as to what they think of her.

It looked like she thinks MJ was more important that The Americans Fighting and Dying everyday...

Did YOu see her look Down when Barb was talking. then the Other black woman chimed in on how much
MJ gave to the world,, What a few Records ??
An NOBODY pays 25 mil to someone if they are Not Guilty... Use some Common Since People

YOU ARE A BIGOT WHO IS PISSED THAT MJ HATED BLACK WOMAN.

IF DEBBIE WERE BLACK YOU WOULD BE WANTING HER TO GET THE KIDS AND MONEY
AND YOU WOULD NOR CALL HER A FAT ASS, YOU WOULD SAY SHE IS A BIG BEAUTIFUL BLACK WOMAN,,

I THINK YOU ARE A RACIST A BIGOT AND A FAT ASS GREASY BLACK WOMAN.
HOW DO YOU LIKE IT ????
MY SELF I CAN'T STAND THOSE FAT BUTTS MOST BLACK WOMAN HAVE
DIABETES QUEENS.

99. Would Debbi want her kids back if there was no MONEY attached to them????????

I think the answer would be "NO THANKS"!!!!!!

BTW Debbie is Jewish which makes those children Jewish. So maybe they shouldn't be raised in a black family.

Michael could have had the most beautiful woman in the world for a wife! Why he chose this bulldog Mack truck is confounding. Unless...he was drugged.

DEBBIE HAS STATED THAT THE JACKSONS CAN KEEP ALL THE MONEY
ALL SHE WANTS IS TO HAVE HER KIDS BACK. MJ S PEOPLE HAVE NOT ALLOWED HER
TO SEE THEM IN YEARS... IT IS NOT SHE DIDNT WANT TO BECAUSE SHE DID,.

Michael Jackson's Memorial for the low-life of society. Michael Jackson will long be buried. The important people will be there for the REAL funeral/burial. The rest of the losers will be at the Staples Center.
