Debbie Rowe to Judge:

I Support Joint

Guardianship of MJ's Kids

8/9/2012 4:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Debbie Rowe -- the woman who gave birth to two of Michael Jackson's children -- has filed legal papers saying she SUPPORTS the new joint guardianship arrangement ... but is warning TJ and Katherine that she WILL intervene if things don't work out.

Rowe filed the documents in L.A. County Superior Court today ... saying she has reviewed the co-guardianship application and signed off on the deal reached between TJ and Katherine to share parenting responsibilities for Paris, Blanket and Prince.

But in the docs, Debbie warns ... "Should the arrangement sought by TJ Jackson and Katherine Jackson become untenable, unstable, unsafe, or in any way contrary to the best interests of the children, Ms. Rowe will seek court intervention."

Rowe claims her concern is for the health, safety and well-being of HER children; and says she will continue to ensure their needs are met.

Remember, when TJ first petitioned for guardianship, the judge said that Debbie must be notified.

Mark my words, when that estate hits one billion liquid, watch this white woman and her two white kids all of a sudden wanna be a family. I give it three years before Paris says "F*ck these weird n*ggas, I wanna embrace my whiteness, do you know I have cousins that are actually brothers, and one is named Jermajesty, muthaf*ckin' JERMAJESTY!"

This woman is no more those children's mother than Michael Jackson was their father. She may have been the surrogate womb, but she's not their biological mother and Michael Jackson was not their biological father. He bleached his skin white, but that did not and could not change his DNA. Yeah, he 'adopted' them, but they are not his biological children. But hey, let the three inherit his money. Better them than, oh I don't La Toya!

Someone who sold her parental rights isn't going to get a lot of support from the Court. She's being given notice because, technically, she is the mother of 2 of them, but she isn't on the top of the Court's list of people who matter.

Warning that she WILL intervene if things don't work out? Why now Debbie? You should have been there for those kids after Michael passed away or had visits with them before. Do you know what they like? When was the last time you seen those kids face to face? Paris even posted a Happy mothers day photo on her Twitter did you see it Debbie?

We have no idea if those kids see her or not, we are not in their lives so we have no right to judge her or them so STFU.

Why are we hearing from her? $$ low? Why does TMZ refer to her giving birth to "MJ"s kids? She gave birth to somebody's kids MJ paid for. NONE of those kids have 1 drop of AA blood. So keep it real. She needs to STFU because she sold her children to MJ and sold her maternal priviledge with it.

The paternity conversation is so old now and so disrespectful to these three innocent children. These are MJ's , like it or not. Biologically, legally and spiritually as well. Debbie was the surrogate who helped Mj have the children he always wanted to have but could not find a partner whom he could trust due to his celebrity and wealth. She stated she did it as a friend . I believe she does care for these children but recognizes that they were MJ's children , not hers. That is why it's called "surrogacy". Many people turn to surrogates to assist them to have a family: Neal Patrick Harris, Melissa Etheridge, etc. It was not invented for Michael Jackson. He used an option that is available and widely used. Just like using medications to even his skin - people with vitiligo often choose that option. Debbie appears to actually be one of the few people in his life who was true to their word with him. She will look out for those kids and they likely will develop a relationship with her when they are adults and can choose their actions freely. As for TJ- he appears to be level headed and focused on helping these children through what will be a very tough childhood in their dad's absence and facing the attacks from their own family to get at their wealth. They need a stable father figure for sure.

Bytch is just looking for more cash. Nothing more, nothing less. She'd even be willing to break up three children who in reality only have each other.
Judge, just say no.

I'm glad Debbie is concerned about the situation that came up with the kids... but my question is, and it's no diss at Debbie but... What about Blanket? Why isn't his mom to be "informed" like the court ordered Debbie to be informed. Are we to conclude that Debbie is Blanket's mother also?
I just got confused and while I'm glad for Prince and Paris, I'm concerned about what will happen to Blanket if something else sinister goes down.

So she is the mother of Prince and Paris but not Blanket. If the current custody does not work out who intervenes for him, Diana Ross?

Debbie Rowe needs to maintain her 'relationship" with her kids, and stay OUT of their lives.

Debbie is full of sh!t. She doesn't want those kids. She got what she wanted out of the deal-- Michael's money. I call her bluff. And what idiots out there actually think that Debbie is the bio mom of Prince and Paris? My guess is that she was only the surrogate. You can bet there's a f#*ked up story behind the conception of those kids but Debbie will take it to her grave or at least her deathbed when she'll confess all.
