Rowe Not Looking for Cash Cow

7/15/2009 3:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Debbie Rowe Not Looking for Cash CowSources connected with the custody case involving Michael Jackson's kids tell us all Debbie Rowe wants is assurance that the Jackson family will honor the deal she had with Michael.

Rowe and Jackson struck an agreement in which she was paid a large sum over a period of years. We're told the current negotiations between the parties center on that agreement and whether the Jackson family will continue to honor it. Although the agreement stays in effect after Jackson's death, we're told Rowe wants assurance the family will abide by the terms.

Our sources say the talks between Rowe and the Jackson family do not involve anything beyond what Rowe would receive under the agreement and she will not fight for custody.

What hate there is out there - - how pathetic. None of you know the real story, yet you are all ready to hang her. Can no onc accept that this woman was a part of MJ's life as dear, close friend?? That she admits she is not maternal, but did it for Michael, and to know that he would see that she was financially secure in return? Sure, it's a hard reality that children are born this way, but he was enormously wealthy at the time, and the amount that she received/is receiving is still pretty paltry in comparison.
Think about the thousands of dollars people pay to adopt from foreign countries. Think about wealthy people who seem to get to the front of the line to adopt white baby boys.....?
Wake up, people, it's a hard world sometimes. but for these two people, it was a friendly business deal. She did nothing to hurt Michael or the Jackson family. It will all come out in the wash that she is NOT avaricious. News paps and tabloids are mostly to blame for the whole bruhaha. Such yellow effing journalism!! And you idiots are lapping it up like cream.

ALL HAS BEEN SAID ABOUT THIS WOMAN, JUST PLAIN LOW LIFE AND A TERRIBLE PERSON. SHE WANTED TO 'GIVE' MICHEAEL CHILDREN, THE MORE PHOTOS COME OUT OF THE DR. THE MORE MICHAELS OLDEST SON LOOKS LIKE HIM, HIS DAUGHTER LOOKS LIKE THE "MOM" AND LITTLE BLANKET, HE RESEMBLES MICHAEL. IF THIS IS THE CASE IT WILL BE SAD THERE IS NO MICHAEL JACKSON BLOOD TO CARRY ON.............

wish we had someone here that knew california law. in some states when children are conceived with donor sperm the father must formally adopt the child inorder for him to become the legal father of the child. wouldnt it be a kicker if ms rowe sought custody and the court ruled that because mj never adopted the children that he has no claim to them at all.
this would remove the jackson family from the picture. if ms rowe is considered a gold digger so are the jacksons. mama jackson sure filed her court papers quickly to get control of the money and the children. she probably had them filed before the death certificat was signed. she even stated that there was no will. sounds like gold digging to me. i wonder why the jacksons are supposedly willing to pay her off-what does she know, what are they afraid of.

Blanket looks like Micheal? Umm NOPE

anyone who doesnt see the resemblance, as in TWINS of Blanket aka prince Michael II ) and Miko Brando, is blind and should get new glasses

watch Larry Kings interview with Miko Brando and his pathetic half hearted denial that he is blankets father. He wont even answer he just shakes his head no. LOL

If she's not looking for a payoff, why does she need a lawyer?

She and the children should have DNA tests. If she matches SHE SHOULD GET THE CHILDREN AND THE MONEY. If she does not match, then an offer should be made to the broad public for people to ask for DNA testing to see it they are the actual parents. They should get the money as well as the children with the proviso of proper care.

Disgusting    

Perhaps they could've gone after her for something related to Arnie Klein, drugs etc. ?

Maybe an agreement was struck where they wouldn't sue her etc, and she would give up the kids and/or testify against Klein?

I don't understand why spousal support should continue after the ex-spouse has died. This woman is greedy. Mj is gone and she still wants her money. Those kids are going to want to know one day why she gave them up and why she only cared about the money.

MJ is ♥    

Honor what agreement? Duress? Extortion? Murder?

This Debbie was part of a group of many, and not until they do a forensic audit of all MJs finances, investigate all enablers and handlers in MJs life, SHOULD, the Jackson's talk to this Rowe.

Rowe is just as guilty, and dirty as Murray, Klein, AEG, Joe Jackson, and many others in MJs life, with NO, regard for MJ.

Joe and Debbie should get together cause they are both sick specimens of human. Destination investigation for Rowe > extortion> murder > jail > broke!

Yes this Rowe is a greedy money hungry, manipulative, womb renting, child selling and guilty hoe!!!!!

OKAY Im confused with this one

Rowe and Jackson struck an agreement in which she was paid a large sum over a period of years. We're told the current negotiations between the parties center on that agreement and whether the Jackson family will continue to honor it. Although the agreement stays in effect after Jackson's death, we're told Rowe wants assurance the family will abide by the terms.


Shouldn't she be negotiating with the ATTORNEYS of his will and Trust ?/
NOT the Jacksons???
How can the Jackson make these deals with mmey they have no control over ????
unless I'm not understanding the reports Kathryn wasn't allowed to be a co exeutor of his will/MONEY
ONLY the original people Jackson stated in his will...(can't remember their names at the moment)

She looks like a hard living piece of Trailer Trash -- chock full of Redneck DNA. The Jacksons need to give her a double-wide, a tattered recliner in the front yard, and a six-pack of Pabst......then she will be set for life.

Geez, I guess I am a greedy and disgusting woman. I took another woman's kids--two of them--and demanded she sign them over to me or she would never see them again.

And that is exactly what happened! I adopted them through court order.

Bitches, get off Rowe's back. Michael got his kids, didn't he? Isn't that what he wanted from beginning to end? Rowe risked her life not once but twice (all women risk their lives to give birth) to give him kids. How they arranged it is none of your damn business, you vicious swine!
