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.

Lilarose: Giving birth is not a life risking activity. The female body is ment to give birth, it's a natural process.

87. 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.

Its not really simply spousal support.
.example
My Aunt divorced,
Inher divorce agreement she recieved X amount of money and property
instead of taking it all in one lump sum HIS attornies ask for yearly payments
She agreed,
He died the next year
BUT the Estate still has to pay her because it is a DEBT owed
just because you die doesn't mean your obligations go away...
she could demand ALL the money from t he estate now if she chose to..
but again thats NOT what she agreed to either.

Understand? or more confused? LOL

Sale Case Johnson--WTF??    

#64 Don't forget that the children aren't her only leverage, so are intimate details about MJ's life. She could write a tell-all book, give interviews, all that. She holds the answers to a lot of questions we have about MJ's life.

My recommendation    

I definitely see a resemblance between Paris and Debbie Rowe. Paris has Debbie's eyes and mouth! Prince, I don't see.
Hadn't heard the rumor about Blanket and Miko--sheesh. A Brando-Jackson kid? Start the therapy now!

I can see why Debbie would have to think about trying for custody of the children. Look at her life now, she is virtually in prison by paps and the media.

If possible, it would be even worse with the children, and she would have to constantly protect them and keep them safe from kidnappers, prying press and everything else.

It would not be like a normal woman raising kids, the interest and speculation about those particular children is absolutely never going to end. No amount of money is worth what her life has turned into already.

If I were Debbie Rowe, I would stay as far away as I can from Arnold Klein. Believe me that guy's days are
numbered. They will get him. Although that fool Dr. Murray will ended up being charged with murder
(manslaughter), the authorities will be under pressure to nail this arrogant Klein as well for enabling Michael
to obtain drugs that he would have been able to get through normal procedures.
Debbie go south -- way down under ! Go to New Zealand. But, please go anywhere else, but don't go to England !!

So far everyone has run their mouths EXCEPT for Debbie Rowe. It appears that the media must drain this crazy story for all its worth. As no one really knows the full details of this sordid mess yet - whats the point of all the speculation, abuse, calling her a cow, accusations etc? Seems rather pointless.

#94 That is false according to Debbie Rowe. Michael did not coerce her into having his children. She approached him and told him she wanted to give him children. She came up with the terms. She's been very clear on that. She wanted him to have children and felt he should be a father. She wasn't some young teeny bopper at the time. Let's try 37yrs old. She was in it for the money. She knew what it was from the beginning. Note, she got pregnant, received her own place to live. Had the children and sent them with Michael. She stated that Michael asked if he could take them. Her response was, they're yours. Go bond with them. What did she do? She went to a spa immediately leaving the hospital. HELLLLLLOOOOOO he took damn good care of her. She was set. She only talks about how she encouraged Michael to bond wth those kids. They weren't hers. So don't all of a sudden try to play like she's the victim who was taken advantage of rich Michael. If you ask me, I think her and the Dr. planned it from the start. Cool, she's a surrogate, that's expected. But don't try to play mommy when it's convenient and you need a paycheck.

She's lousy and MJ wasn't much better. He was nothing but a drug addict. Child Protective Services would have removed the kids from him if they knew.

Thanks fanwithdoubts. Not sure I understand why she could demand ALL the money from the estate now if she chose to? MJ's will clearly omitted providing for her and they were divoraced at the time of his death.

#87 If you came back every few years whenever there was a sign of trouble looking for another payout and threatening to take the kids, then yes, you are a greedy, disgusting woman just like Debbie Rowe! A woman's body is designed to give birth. Enough with the hyperbole.

#94 Debbie Rowe offered to have MJ's children. She said so on national TV. He didn't coerce her. He didn't even ask!
