Debbie Rowe

Won't Seek Guardianship

Of Paris ... For Now

Debbie Rowe
is NOT at odds with Paris Jackson's guardians, Katherine Jackson and TJ Jackson -- and she will not try to wrestle guardianship away unless the situation changes drastically ... because she does not want to split up Michael Jackson's 3 kids.

Sources directly connected with the family tell TMZ ... Debbie has spent a significant amount of time at Katherine's house and "likes and respects" Katherine.  We're told Debbie loves TJ, and worries he's taken on so much -- not only is he guardian to MJ's 3 kids, he has a family of his own to care for.

As for Debbie's relationship with Paris, we're told it's "intense."  Paris calls Debbie "Mom" and the two interact as mother and daughter, with Debbie often correcting Paris and "laying down the law."

We're told as much as Debbie loves Paris and wants to be with her, she does not want to yank Paris out of the family house and away from her brothers, Prince and Blanket.  We're told Debbie is especially worried about Blanket, who is vulnerable and feels abandoned after Michael's death. 

Now here's the problem -- We're told Michael's brothers and sisters -- with the exception of Janet -- have been on a campaign against Debbie being part of Paris' life. 

Not a big shock, right?

Debbie makes me sick    

Debbie doesn't care about Paris. A woman who cares about her children wouldn't willingly hand them over to a drug addict who had already been accused multiple times of molesting children.

My heart goes out to those kids. Imagine being shielded from the media your entire life then suddenly having you & your family's personal business splattered everywhere. What they're dealing with can't be easy. And, poor Blanket. Being the baby, he was probably closest to his father when he passed.

Debbie has turned out to be the most patient woman I think I've ever seen. She has very patiently navigated through the entire Jackson crazy mess and come out on the other side -- and by simply waiting, she's gotten to have a relationship with her daughter. I hope that she can help guide Paris and Prince through the Jackson crazy as well and they come out on the other side better people. I hope that helps Blanket in some way too.

How about we find out who Blanket's real mother and father are and let them raise him? He does not belong with the Jackson family either. At least P & P have an idea of who and where they come from.

Isn't she old enough to become an emancipated child? Anyway if what is said is true then Debbie is a smart woman to consider all of Paris's siblings then just herself and her relationship with Paris. Paris and her siblings need stability whatever that word means in the Jackson household.

Debbie made a promise to Michael while he was alive. She upheld that promise. Now that he is not here, she should take on her role as mother. She and Paris looks so peaceful together. Prayers are with Debbie and her kids.

She's baaaack    

It ain't gonna happen legally. She signed legal do***ents giving up all of her rights. That family wants the $$ and where the kids go the $$ goes so I'm sure they'd fight it tooth and nail for years until those kids were legal adults. Why does everyone think Debbie Rowe is the Mother Theresa of mothers? She spawned those humans for MJ and never looked back. She's got to have a few screws loose.

Best Mom    

I always believed Debbie had Prince and Paris because she absolutely loved Michael Jackson and was willing to forfeit her role as mother, per Michael's wishes. I never agreed with Michael's decision to keep Debbie out of the picture. Time and age changes alot of people and I feel Debbie is at a point where she would now second-guess her decision to go along with Michael's wishes to relinquish the children. Most of us have been given 2nd chances, and Debbie deserves a 2nd chance also. I think Debbie's role as "mom" to Paris is a definite plus. What child does not want to know their "mom" or dad"?

I remember years ago and going on youtube presently seeing interviews with Debbie Rowe just as content after she "gave" her kids to MJ. She is Prince and Paris's mother but for you all to sit here and act as if she is mother of the year is laughable. No amount of money would allow me to give the most precious gift you could have "a child" to someone just because he offered millions and you thought hey instead of hanging out with McCauley, Sean Linen, C. Feldman and others... you should have your own children. I feel bad for those children because they didn't ask for this craziness but you all insult the Jacksons and only know of what you read about them. You don't see any of the other grandchildren strung out on drugs, acting a fool, or starving, they must have done something right... from Tito's oldest son to the youngest great grand... you hear of no foolishness from these people but they are the worst because of what... the fact that they are African American and Paris is Caucasian?... you all need to stop.... Paris is at that when teen girls go through the motions... she wants her way and her grandmother has a say... she's still a minor remember no matter what inheritance she has to look forward to... Katherine has rules and Paris along with whatever stage of grieving she is in probably doesn't want to follow.

If Paris goes with Debbie she will become her eating buddy and all of her career aspirations will go down the drain.

I'd like to know why Debbie suddenly changed her mind. Her history as a mother hasn't been very good. After his birth she didn't even see Prince Michael until he was 6 weeks old, and thereafter she saw him infrequently. After Paris was delivered Michael took her home before she was even cleaned from the birth. Have you ever seen a baby immediately after birth? He was a freak and she's a freak too. I just don't think she's all sweetness and light like people are saying.
