Jackson Family

Debbie Will Become

Paris' Guardian Over Our Dead Bodies

Michael Jackson
's family has circled the wagons ... with many family members expressing outrage at the prospect Debbie Rowe could become Paris Jackson's legal guardian ... sources connected with the family tell TMZ.

We broke the story ... Debbie has not made any move to become Paris' guardian after last week's suicide attempt, but she's amenable if Paris wants it.  As we reported ... Paris is having trouble connecting with grandma Katherine, and that's one of the reasons she's established a bond with Debbie over the last few months.

Our sources say ... members of the family believe Debbie's motivation is to put herself in the public eye, as evidenced by her statement to the media after the suicide attempt.   As one source said, "If her intentions were pure she'd be speaking to the family."

We're told the family will fight Debbie "tooth and nail" if she attempts to secure guardianship.

The criticism is puzzling, because Debbie has stayed out of the spotlight for years, and her statement about Paris had nothing to do with guardianship -- it was merely confirming TMZ's story that Paris had attempted suicide.

Also interesting ... the family is not suggesting Debbie's motivation is money.

The judge in the guardianship case is currently reviewing Katherine's guardianship to determine if she's able to properly care for MJ's 3 kids.

Trust me, Jacksons wont EVER let Debbie have Paris. Truth is, Paris is old enough to decide for herself. But trust that they will hang on to the gravy train with their toenails.. They can't stand to lose a dime.

Also.. Debdie is THE only one I would trust! She has protected Michael like NO OTHER has! She has kept her mouth shut about almost EVERYTHING! If Debbie ever wrote a book, I would buy that in a heartbeat! I trust Debbie.. She really loved Michael. One of the only ones who really loved Michael.

the jacksons, are just scared that they will lose the money these kids bring in. katherine was missing ( hide out by family members)and mj's kids didnt know where she was, that was terrible. they just want the money!!! this is why mj, didnt have the kids around his family (he himself didnt go around them). they should never have been subjected to these people.

This is exactly why Paris Jackson is a mess. The Jackson family doesn't give a crap about her. I think the judge should talk to Paris and find out what she wants and do that. If she wants to live with her real mother let her.

Good riddance!    

Oh, so you mean the Jacksons can't get to the kid's money as easily. They're prepared to fight Rowe over Paris' dead body to keep it too.

If she is the biological mum then the Jacksons should keep walking. They are one seriously greedy family that I hope end up with absolutely NOTHING!!!

If that bunch cared that much, they would not have abducted Katherine last summer and took her out of state for days - leaving MJ's kids distraught and in the dark as to where their one and only guardian had gone. That was their nail in the coffin in regards to showing how little they cared for the well being of MJ's kids.

As always ... it's about who gets the $$$.

i don't think that debbie wants money or attention..
Paris needs a mom and a right attention and only Debbie can. Paris is old enough to decide for herself and for her life. I think she may be happier with Debbie. She needs a family. Prince and Blanket too.
