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.

I think Katherine should get the kids. But I think a counselor needs to be ordered by a judge. Katherine, Debbie, and the kids should be in counseling so the counselor can work with getting the kids to know their mother and eventually Debbie to get visitation with the kids. PLEASE GET A RESTRAINT ORDER AGAINST JOE JACKSON to stay away from the kids. Debbie made a mistake by giving kids to Michael without having visitation with them. She also goofed by accepting money but we don’t know what Michael told her either but she shouldn’t have did what she did. These kids have lost 1 parent they deserve to know their bio mom. If Debbie don't try for visitation now with these children then I think the judge should terminate her rights.

Sale Case Johnson--WTF??    

#101 I thought people were saying Blanket looked like Miko Brando, not Prince Michael I? Can you give us a link to these pictures, because I'm not finding pictures of Christian and Marlon as children and do not see the resemblance as adults?

103. 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.

Just leaving a will saying they OMIT someone doesn't make it legal !!
If it did i will make to sure to OMIT my credit card companies ~LOL
Your creditors STILL recieve the DEBTS owed after you die..
Thats the purpose of an exectuor to make sure ALL DEBTS are paid before anyone recieves the gifts left to family members..
and bottom line Debbie Rowe is a DEBT he still owes..

Have you read articles saying AFTER Michaels DEBTS are paid he will still be worth X amount of dollars?

If you read the article as to her earlier interview - it paints a picture of a woman who never bonded with these children - has no interest in them - loves her animals and that is it. People need to regard her as a paid surrogate - no judge is going to order these children into counseling with a woman who just happens to be their biological mother - who is basically not interested bonding with them.

I feel sorry that these kids have to read and hear this in the news - if this is only to make sure the estate honors a contract with her so that she can continue with her horses etc then don't announce that you want custody after 11 years or so of never representing to the children that you are their mother. At least have some concern about what you are putting them through by threatening to separate them from the only family they have known because of money. Not to mention the stress on the grandmother.

These women who find these rich dudes - and I mean Anna Nicole Smith - then spend the millions and want more - gosh they won the lottery - if she had put the money in the bank instead of throwing it away she could have her horses now and not be a jerk.

She should be paying
child support.
Why on earth should she
be still getting paid after
all these years?
She has the nerve to say
she had these kids as a "gift"
to Michael!

Seriously, what could she possibly need more money for? Her designer wardrobe? ..Cosmetic surgery? ..
Gym Memberships ? ....Horses?
She doesn't exactly seem to be high maintenance.

Who knows what arrangements she made with MJ. Everybody mind your own business. As for the comments about her looks.To all the ones with negative comments- have you looked in the mirror latly? Leave her alone, where you all get off calling her those names, that includes the media.Did anybody talk to Ms Rowe, that you know all your false information. Unless she talks, nobody knows everything. If the police found all the drugs in Neverland why was is not investigated at that time. Also if he was such a good father, how can he,he was always on Drugs and the children grew up with it.The are old enough to understand what was going on in that house.So lay off Debbie Rowe till you have information about her arrangement she made.

I will give Debbie Rowe the benefit of the doubht that she really thought she was doing something good by having and giving MJ kids. In return he took care of her by giving her money. Not such a bad thing. Now that Michael is dead, I personally feel for now the kids should stay with grandmom but I feel as the biological mother Debbie should be able to see the kids and see if they bond. I think everyone should be honest with the kids who their mom is so the kids can make their own my up if they want her in their lives. If they bond I feel maybe the kids (all three) should stay with Debbie but still spend time with their grandmom and Jackson's family life they always have. If these kids are raised by the Jacksons, I don't feel they will have much of a normal life. They probably will be pushed into the business that killed their father.

I have heard that in California if the mother wants the kids they will give them to her. I hope for the children's sake that doesn't happen. They don't even know this woman and she is obviously just wanting more money. The kids need to be with the only family they know - the Jackson's. I hope the ugly cow doesn't get one red cent.

SHAME ON YOU TMZ FOR LYING TO YOUR READERS!!!

TMZ is in bed with Rowe's attorneys and is INTENTIONALLY refusing to report Rowe's latest comments. Extra (and all reputable news sources) are reporting Rowe's OWN STATEMENTS contained in emails sent just a few days ago to her "friend" Rebecca White. Among other shocking information, the emails reveal the following:

http://extratv.warnerbros.com/2009/07/debbie_rowes_shocking_custody.php


"In an email dated July 2, 2009, Rowe's writing suggests that she appears to be conflicted about going after her biological children -- Prince Michael, 12, and Paris, 11. "I'm not going after custody," Debbie writes to Rebecca. "These kids are not mine. They were never mine. They were always Michael's. I was Michael's best friend."

***

"In an email from Debbie to Rebecca on July 5, Rowe seems to be changing her mind about seeking custody. "My lawyer is telling me I have to take some responsibility about the welfare of the children," Rowe writes. "Do I want the kids? Hell no. Does it look good for me to ask for them? Absolutely. I don't want to look like the woman who gave away her kids and just forgot about them. Would Michael want Joe to have them? I think it would be the last thing that he would ever have wanted."

White admits that she believes Rowe is motivated to seek custody for financial gain. "The motivation is money," Rebecca says. "I really have to be honest... If the children aren't the ones she wants, what else will she gain from it?"

Rebecca also confirms that Rowe told her a secret custody deal is in the works. "Yes, absolutely," White confirms. "In one text message she had just said, 'Just wait until the 14th. Everything will be done after the 14th.'... There's definitely going to be a secret deal. There's definitely going to be a settlement that's going to come out of this."

Sale Case Johnson--WTF??    

Please, if she really thought she was doing something solely for the good, she wouldn't have taken MILLIONS of dollars for it. No offense, but wake up, people! If there's money, especially that much money, involved there's nothing selfless about her actions! She just doesn't want to be viewed as the money-grubbing woman she so obviously is. Don't forget this is Hollywood we're talking about, and it doesn't work like our world. Everyone has their price. She is no different just because she wants to live on a horse ranch rather than go shopping and get her mani-pedis every day, which is what she seems to want us to believe. She still sold her kids for money any way you slice it!
