Debbie Rowe

Ready, Willing and Able

To Become Paris' Guardian

6/10/2013 11:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Debbie Rowe could become Paris Jackson's guardian if the 15-year-old wants to make the switch, and sources tell us it's a real possibility.

As we first reported ... the judge in the guardianship case has ordered an investigation into the welfare of Michael Jackson's daughter, after her attempted suicide last week.

Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... Rowe has made no attempt to become Paris' legal guardian -- a title which is now vested jointly in Katherine Jackson and TJ Jackson.  But that could change if the judge determines the current arrangement is not serving Paris well.

We're told TJ's role is marginal, given his responsibilities to his wife and kids.  As for Katherine's role, sources tell us Paris has been increasingly frustrated that her grandmother is not "connected" to her life ... and that's a big reason why the teen has struck up what has become an intense relationship with Debbie.

If the judge opens up the guardianship case, he will give great weight to Paris' desires.  If Paris wants Debbie as her guardian -- and we're told that's a "likely" scenario -- our sources say Debbie would gladly accept.

It's important to note ... when the judge held the guardianship hearing shortly after Michael died ... Debbie voiced concern about the welfare of the kids but accepted Katherine as guardian as long as the kids were protected. 

Debbie NEVER waived her right to a guardianship, and we're told the judge would take Debbie seriously, given the fact that she's the biological mother with a meaningful relationship with Paris.

Good. She wants a parent to bond with, Debbie or Diana would be much better than Katherine.

Debbie is overweight and under-kept; looking as though she's disconnected with the world. How can she care for Paris when she needs a guardian herself? At the least Debbie needs a life coach.

She should. Could only be an improvement.

Good to see the person who sold the children to a predator is ready to get them back just in time for the second cash in.

People certainly have a lot to say in support of this and Debbie, but let's not forget the facts. This woman gave up her parental rights when Paris was just a baby and lived comfortable without her all this time. Say what you will about Michael Jackson, he is the one who loved and took care of her and by Paris's accounts, did a great job of it. Now that Paris is almost an adult, her mom wants her around? I'm sure MJ taught Paris a thing or too about family wanting your $$$$.

I'm conflicted about this. The Jacksons are all insane. This woman here though, she might lead a more normal life on her ranch with the horses but she was happy to sell her babies. Not in a loving, make some stable couple happy way, but to a man who was thought to be a self hating pedophile. So for her it was all about the money and the hell with the babies. Maybe a total stranger would be better, and not a distant relative of the Wacko family.

Give us the story, TMZ : Did they replace Paris's Cleavered Hand with a Lobster Claw?

They had it all planned out ...I knew that was going to be the case ever since Paris started hanging out with Debbie.Will all of this be happening if Micheal was still alive?Hell No...

She'd be better served getting as far away from that band of freaks as possible.

I hope Debbie does get custody. Miss Katherine should not be raising kids at her age.

This should do some great things for Paris...hopefully! I wish Debbie had a stronger presence in the children's lives before and shortly after MJ's death, it would make things less complicated for them. I love you MJ, you were an amazing father to your children!

Can you imagine what its like living in a house where everyday, all day long everybody is scheming on how to try and get your fathers money. If they're fine with physical abuse (the Janet slap). Imagine they would have no problem with emotional abuse. Maybe even trying to brainwash the kids to give them money after they become of age.
