Debbie Rowe -- TV Lies Worth $490k

10/17/2009 10:52 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Debbie RoweDebbie Rowe, the mother of Michael Jackson's kids, has figured out exactly what the penalty is for allegedly lying about her on TV -- $490,000.

Rowe is asking a judge to issue a default judgment on her behalf in her defamation lawsuit against Rebecca White.

Rowe claims White was lying when she gave a television interview claiming she had an email from Debbie Rowe that said, "Do I want the kids? Hell no. Does it look good for me to ask for them? Absolutely."

Rowe filed the original lawsuit in July. A hearing on Rowe's petition to issue a default judgment against White is scheduled for November.

Janet Arvizo did go behind bars. It was proven in the 2005 trial that she was a liar, a fraud, and had coached her son to lie in order to obtain a settlement from Michael. Janet Arvizo incriminated herself on the witness stand and a few months later she was arrested and did go to jail. This, of course, did not make headline news but she did go to jail. Serves her right for she tried to do to Michael Jackson. He was free because he was an innocent man and she went behind bars because she was an extortionist, a fraud, a liar and a con artist. All of which Tom Mesereau proved at the trial.

They were in it for the money    

This woman should just go on with her life! Doesn't she know people aare going to say things. This isn't sue worthy. She already makes a ton of money, so she is going to pay a lot of money to take a interviewer to court? I guess it's ok for her to glean the money off of Jackson forever because she had those kids-the kids who do biologically belong to Klein-bet she knew it too. Bet she bluffed Michael and said lies as well. .

THISISIT again MJ breaks records    

I hope Debbie gets every penny she is asking for. The disgusting media ran with this story and tried to make Debbie seem like a money hungry whore who sold her kids. When she has said time and time again, she wanted to give birth to the King of Pops children, that she was never interested in being a mom. I don't blame her, I would have done it too.

Question for Debbie: have u ever visited ur two children since u were given visitation rights?

NO. so that proves she doesn't give a dang about them. she just wanted the deal with Katherine, to get more $. that's all.

"WhoCares", I don't agree that Debbie should just let it go. No one should be able to discredit someone else in the media and get away with it. Lies destroy lives.

But doesn't want the kids or she would not have given Michael sole custody of Prince and Paris. So where is the lie?

Michael! Michael! Michael!
I love you most!
God bless you and your children!

I understand women having children for other women, who can't.

However, although I don't understand having a child and then disavowing the child for a house and horses and such, I am very grateful that mindset is beyond my grasp.

She loved MJ and I know she had money from him but she did give him children which didn't happen with LMP.
