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.

How much did this woman make to bear MJ's kids anyway? Couldn't he have found someone a BIT more attractive?
Paris looks a lot like Debbie - she may not age well....

Dont forget she was Arnie Kliens nurse. My understanding is she has a very nice horse ranch in Montanna or somewhere out there and not needing any money. That was part of the deal. Jackson gets full parental rights and Debbie goes away.

It's good that there is another set of eyes watching the guardianship. I think the negative comments about Debbie Rowe are uncalled for. She produced two great kids for Michael, So what that she's an average looking woman. Probably the majority of those putting her down don't look any better.

Paris has pictures of Debbie on her Twitter account.
She refers to her as mommy.

Debbie is damned if she does and damned if she doesn't. If she tried to get guardianship now people would accuse her of being after the kids allowance. If she doesn't go for guardianship she gets accused of not caring about the kids. Give the woman a break.

In 2001, Rowe went to a private judge to have her parental rights for the two children terminated. In 2004, after Jackson was charged with 10 counts of child abuse, she went to court to have the decision reversed.
Jackson's siblings were exposing the children to teachings of the Nation of Islam. 2005 court do***ents noted that “Because she is Jewish, Deborah feared the children might be mistreated if Michael continued the association.” On the stand, in the 2005 People v. Jackson case, she explained that she had been allowed limited visits to her children, for eight hours every 45 days..

In August 2009, Rowe reached a settlement with Katherine Jackson, the children's guardian, under which she has rights to supervised visitations. Mrs. Jackson's attorney stated that the negotiations were "never about money" and the settlement was in the best interests of the children. The children now know that Rowe is their mother and they have visitations with her

It's obvious who Paris's mother is..damn, she looks like Debbie from the side, but more beautiful.

As for Debbie throwing her weight around with threats, get over it. You got your payout years ago & each time you try to flex in the courts, you get knocked down to your level.

So who's more attractive in their wedding picture? Michael or Debbie?

they shouldnt listen to SH*T she has to say! she sold her kids! so obviously the best interest of her kids is nowhere in her mind, all she cares about is MONEY!

What a joke. This lady was just a paid surrograte mother to these kids. That "marriage" with MJ was just a farce. Please lady, you've already been paid for what you were hired to do, go away and shut up.

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

Debbie was originally just a surrogate mother, and it wouldn't have been anything wrong with that if Michael's wife, Lisa Marie had been involved and asked, but she wasn't. It was Debbie's idea, not Michaels, and she "offered" (she got well paid for it) to do this without Lisa Marie's knowledge. Then, when she was pregnant, Debbie didn't keep the secret, as agreed, but told a friend, who recorded it and sold it to the media. MJ's mom got to know about it, and convinced him / them to marry.

I don't know if MJ and LMP's marriage would've lasted anyway, but Debbie's interference can't possibly have had a positive effect on their relationship.

Michael was a nice guy, but often naive. I think he thought, felt, and looked at things differently than the rest of us. This vulnerability made ​​him a victim to people who looked at him and saw an easy way to get to $$$.

Michael Jackson’s Kids: Spending Time with Debbie Rowe

Michael Jackson‘s kids, Prince and Paris, have been spending time with their biological mother, Debbie Rowe.

Rowe has also included Blanket, aka Prince Michael II, in the visits, according to sources. Blanket’s biological mother is unknown.

This might be the best news to come out of the long year since Michael Jackson died. The anniversary, on Friday, June 25th, is sparking dozens of stories, mostly false, about the Jackson kids and anything to do with Michael Jackson. It’s going to be a wild week, that’s for sure!

The reality is that Rowe, who was married to Jackson when she gave birth to Prince and then Paris, has forged a relationship not only with the children but with Katherine Jackson, their guardian and Michael’s mother. The visits have happened quietly, with no fanfare or publicity.

Rowe–who raises and sells horses in Southern California– retained her parental rights when she divorced Jackson. A family court judge reaffirmed that in 2006.

This week, however, all members of this saga will be out of town as fans descend on various locations to commemorate the anniversary of Michael’s death.

According to my sources, the Jackson kids are doing fine. They will, indeed, attend private school this fall.

But I am also told that it’s incorrect, as was reported Sunday from the British press, that the children have “no friends.” They have plenty of friends among their similarly aged cousins. And once they’re in school, they will undoubtedly make friends.

It wouldn’t have been easy for them in the first place. From June 2005 until last June–four years–the children were dragged by Jackson from one locale to another–Bahrain, Ireland, Japan, France, Las Vegas, northern Virginia, suburban New Jersey, and then finally a rented house in Beverly Hills.
