Debbie Rowe to Judge:

I Support Joint

Guardianship of MJ's Kids

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

0809_debbie_rowe_tmz_article
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.

Why    

MJ will
I HAVE INTENTIONALLY OMITTED TO PROVIDE FOR MY FORMER WIFE , DEBORAH JEAN ROWE JACKSON
If any of my children are minors at the time of my death, I nominate my mother, KATHERINE JACKSON as guardian of the persons and estates of such minor children.
If Katherine fails to survive me , or is unable or unwilling to act as guardian , I nominate DIANA ROSS as guardian of the persons and estates of such minor children

Frank Cascio
"Those kids need to be with Katherine and the family," Cascio told "Good Morning America" an exclusive interview. "That's who they need to be with. NOT WITH DEBBIE."
Cascio called Katherine Jackson "the most special woman in [Jackson's] entire life."

In a 2003 interview, most of which had never been aired before, Rowe said she did not believe relinquishing custody meant that she had abandoned her children. She had meant for them to be with their father from their conception. In the divorce Rowe relinquished custody. In another hearing in 2001, she relinquished parental rights.
In testimony before the court Rowe said she had little contact with the children AND WANTED TO REMAIN OUT OF THEIR LIVES.
"I did it for him to become a father, not for me to become a mother. YOU EARN THE TITLE PARENT. I HAVE DONE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO EARN THAT TITLE ," she told the court.
When lawyers asked if she had "ever considered the possibility if Michael should die, what would happen to the children," Rowe says she trusts Jackson to pick an appropriate guardian
"I'M SURE HE HAS A WONDERFUL PERSON IN MIND TO TAKE CARE OF THEM," she told the court.

Why    


Michael Jacksons will:
Except as otherwise provided in this Will or in the Trust referred to in Article mA11hereof, I have intentionally omitted to provide for my heirs.
I HAVE INTENTIONALLY OMITTED TO PROVIDE FOR MY FORMER WIFE , DEBORAH JEAN ROWE JACKSON
If any of my children are minors at the time of my death, I nominate my mother, KATHERINE JACKSON as guardian of the persons and estates of such minor children.
If Katherine fails to survive me , or is unable or unwilling to act as guardian , I nominate DIANA ROSS as guardian of the persons and estates of such minor children

Frank Cascio
Debbie Rowe, the mother of Michael Jackson's two oldest children, has no relationship with the kids and does not deserve custody, said a former personal assistant of the singer who became friends with Jackson when he was a boy.
Frank Cascio, 28, added his name to a growing list of Jackson friends and associates who believe the pop star's ex-wife should not seek custody of the children, and a court should instead honor Jackson's last will and grant custody to his mother Katherine Jackson.
"Those kids need to be with Katherine and the family," Cascio told "Good Morning America" an exclusive interview. "That's who they need to be with. NOT WITH DEBBIE."
Cascio called Katherine Jackson "the most special woman in [Jackson's] entire life."

It must be recorded SOMEWHERE who Blanket´s mother is - children don´t just fall from the sky into your lap.
Blanket is not adopted, how could Michael Jackson claim him as his son unless he is indeed Michael´s biological child. There are laws on such things.
I loved Michael Jackson, but I think the way he got his children was very selfish. Kids are not pets.

In the midst of a global technological revolution, in this twenty-first century, connective devices have become a daily part of our lives. With the birth of social networking, users now have become their own media; publicly sharing opinions, debating in subjective accordance, communicating with other users within a diverse Internet community, publishing experiences through personal blogging, or appeasing the thirst for knowledge by means of unlimited Web content. With the Internet becoming increasingly public, societies adaption to social media has also lead to the increase of cyber crimes; the most common form Internet stalking/bullying. Stalkers use their technological connections to harass a person or group of people through a variety of methods that are not limited to; false accusations, obsessive monitoring, mimicking or stealing ones identity, threatening, soliciting sexual activities, plagiarism of the victim’s content and unique ideas, gathering information for future attacks, and/or breeching computer security to hack or gain IP address. The drive of the cyber stalker is to cause distress to their victim(s) while gaining personal pleasures through unreasonable justifications.

While most novice cyber stalkers pose no threat, other than that of annoyance; the criminal actions of cyber stalking have lead to sexually motivated crimes, kidnapping, and death.

Cyber stalkers find their victims through various mediums such as social networking sites, search engines, online forums, message boards, chat rooms, or through electronic mail. These cyber stalkers behave with vile mannerisms such as the defaming of character to damage the victim’s reputation, contacting those connected with the victim in attempts to falsely accuse them with the hope that others turn against their victim, and/or creating fictitious accusations that are publicly posted on various social mediums online. Mostly associated with mental illness, a cyber stalker may choose to live vicariously through the victim by stealing content, parroting actions, or mimicking behaviors. This plagiarism happens after the stalker compulsively monitors the victim so to gather information – this monitoring usually takes place without the victim’s knowledge. A great deal, if not all, of that gained information is later used to satisfy the stalker’s unreasonable needs. In the attempt to gain information, the Internet stalker seeks out victim’s friends and/or family members to obtain personal information; such as photos, addresses, employment information, information about known traumatic life experiences, and other forms of private information. While most cyber stalkers act on their own, to appease their egos and gain satisfaction of their crimes; some encourage third parties to add to the distress and to continue the harassment. The Internet stalker then creates a tangled web of lies when the victim tries to put an end to the cruelty; these falsifications are usually done to place the blame on the victim. The stalker will seek attention by claiming it is the victim who is burdening them in the same ways that they are doing to the victim.


As diverse as mankind, in this newly defined technologically advanced world, so is the cyber stalker. Not limited to age, sex, or race; the cyber stalker’s profile is varied. The psychological profile, of the cyber stalker, is not limited to; living in a small or single room apartment, having bad personal hygiene, having very poor social skills so that they may have a limited number or no friends, knowing no life outside of the Internet due to insecurities that make them fear the real world, or having unique traits such abnormal beliefs about concrete facts. It is fairly common for the Internet stalker to take no pride in their appearance; often having facial hair, unmanaged or matted hair, body odor, dirty fingernails, unshaven areas of hair, and an overall unclean look due to their failure to bathe regularly. These cyber criminals may live in a filthy environment; sleep on crusty unclean sheets, use a grimy bathroom, urinate and defecate in pots or buckets, and may live on quick fix foods; such as pizza, soda, microwave dinners, or crock pot experiments. These illicit individuals usually have not held down a job in months, work from home, or talk wildly about a job they do not have. Internet stalkers may also have varying unpleasant personal characteristics such as a lack of intimacy, tormented sexual fantasies that may involve causing pain to others, a troubled existence, criminal background, sexual inadequacies, varying untreated mental illnesses, a heightened ego, or fail to understand the personal needs of others. Cyber stalkers have little to no control over their abusive behaviors. Leading to more mystery, the cyber stalker will falsely claim one or more of these common profile descriptions in a method to appear normal to others. New-aged cyber bullies usually have more than a single victim; these stalkers are referred to by police and mental health councilors as serial cyber stalkers. Serial cyber stalkers may resort to violence or profane actions to seek attention, behaving as a small child having an attention orientated tantrum. These criminals may threaten the life of the victim, attempt to lessen the victims self esteem, degrade the victim, attempt to defame the victim publicly, wish death upon the victim and the family of the victim, and even gain personal information through IP address. Based on the skill of the criminal, a single Internet Provider (IP) address can reveal the given name and exact address of the victim. Internet stalkers will often blather of their IP successes to their victim(s). With this information the stalker may take his/her sickening obsession from the Internet and into the real world -– increasing the danger. It is these Internet to real world stalkers that are wanted in criminal cases; such as sexual assaults, kidnappings, and even murders. With online harassment increasing, and growing in technological dangers, it is very important for victims to protect themselves.

So many people commenting Gus, I mean, Debbie Rowe sold her kids. She didn't sell her kids and she didn't sell her parental rights! She got paid for been a surrogate but that was a private transaction between her and Michael. Michael was not stupid. They married and the kids were born into the legal marriage of DR and MJ. He figures as the father in their birth certificate. When they divorced, she RELINQUISHED to her parental rights in court papers. Speaking for herself, in her sane mind, that she gave birth to her children "for him to be a father, not for her to be a mother", which implies she never intended to be a mother for those kids.

Relinquished= cede something, renounce or surrender something, abandon or give something up or put something aside. To let go of something physically.

Once you sign papers like that in a court, it is taken in big consideration, because it was HER decision with her sane mind! I am not well informed of what kind of ammendments she has done to her prior statements since her goose with the golden eggs died, but I'm sure the court will take in consideration the her act, for whatever reason, of voluntarily handing over the her children to their father and never looking back!
It's hard for me to understand a transaction like this unless she had a deadly disease. As a mother, when I got divorced, my exhusband tried to convince me to let the kids go live with him and I could have them on weekends, and not even for a moment I considered that idea. I was scare to death, but everything turn out fine, because my children were my backbone!
If she were really interested in the happiness and welfare of those kids, the co-guardianship with TJ should have never happened! She should have stepped up to the plate a long time ago, and offer her help in taking care of the THREE children, instead of threatening to take the older 2, or just standing by while the work is done for her!

@Readmylips
People can spam on blogs, but when you use the word "pedophile" and "pedophilia" as a personal reference to someone, and you can't prove what you are saying, it's called slander and distortion of image and character. I am glad TMZ is filtering blogs, specially in MJ's stories, for the kind of language and demographics that participate whenever there is an MJ story! The kind of unscrupulous, unfounded accusations that happened on his death anniversary is not going to happen for his birthday!

OhWell is psychotic and so are his cohorts that go by the names of Suzie, Tellit and Deb. They have created hundreds of other nics they use on a regular basis such as What I Think, Hibiscus, Dustin, Readmylips, Kimbo etc., etc., etc. They also steal (clone) other posters nics (mostly mine) on a continual basis in a pathetic attempt to gain attention and some sort of sense of self worth. Something they obviously cannot attain in real life.


For more info please read my post regarding stalkers that appears on the previous page.

Siggi, is that really you????


What do you mean "selfish"? You state that you believe them to be his biological children yet you imply that his children were obtained or treated in a similar manner as adopting/owning a cat or dog.

Shocked.......

See that is what proves you to be delusional, OhWell.

You believe, in that sick and twisted mind of yours, that your posts affect me in some manner.


FYI, they do not.
