Debbie Rowe

Won't Seek Guardianship

Of Paris ... For Now

6/14/2013 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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?

Paris & Prince Jackson Have Different Biological Fathers, Report

Posted on Jun 16, 2013 @ 7:41AM | By Radar Staff

Paris Jackson always believed she and Prince were full siblings – with mom Debbie Rowe and the same biological father.

But according to a new report, just weeks ago, she learned she and Prince have different dads and the shocking revelation was one of the traumas leading up to her suicide attempt.

A string of arguments between Paris and Prince followed Michael Jackson’s only daughter learning the truth of her parentage, a source tells the London Sun.

There have long been reports that Michael Jackson was not the biological father of any of his three children, and a series of men have claimed that role. But most — including Paris — had previously thought that she and Prince were full siblings.

Paris is still recovering from her tragic suicide attempt, ironically at the same hospital where her father was pronounced dead.

Lawsuit evidence: Michael Jackson lost dance moves in last days

By Alan Duke, CNN

updated 12:22 PM EDT, Sun June 16, 2013

Compare Michael Jackson in 2001 to 2009

Jurors watched a comparison of Jackson's performance of "Billie Jean" in '01 and '09
Show director was "concerned he would embarrass himself on stage, or worse yet -- get hurt"
Jackson lawyers argue AEG Live pressured his doctor to get Jackson ready for rehearsals
AEG Live lawyers argue Jackson chose and supervised Dr. Conrad Murray

Los Angeles (CNN) -- Michael Jackson's health deteriorated so badly in the last weeks of his life that he couldn't perform some of his trademark dance moves, according to evidence presented in his family's lawsuit against a concert promoter.

Jurors in the wrongful death trial Friday watched a comparison of Jackson's performance of "Billie Jean" from 2001 with rehearsal video from June 2009, when he was preparing for his "This Is It" comeback concerts.

"I have watched him deteriorate in front of my eyes over the last 8 weeks. He was able to do multiple 360............ spins back in April. He'd fall on his ass if he tried now," production manager John "Bugzee" Houghdahl wrote in an e-mail to AEG Live CEO Randy Phillips on June 19, 2009.

Show director Kenny Ortega sent Jackson home from a rehearsal that night because of his strange behavior.

"He was a basket case and Kenny was concerned he would embarrass himself on stage, or worse yet -- get hurt," Houghdahl wrote. "The company is rehearsing right now, but the DOUBT is pervasive."

Executives asked: Did Jackson need a straightjacket?

What did AEG know about MJ's health?

AEG CEO e-mail: Big trouble with MJ

Paris Jackson's 'cry for help'
The e-mail chain -- titled "trouble at the Front" -- is key evidence in the trial in which Jackson's mother and three children contend AEG Live is liable for the singer's death because it negligently hired, retained and supervised Dr. Conrad Murray.

Murray, who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in Jackson's death, told police he used the surgical anesthetic propofol to treat Jackson's insomnia so he could be rested for rehearsals. The coroner ruled Jackson's June 25, 2009, death was caused by an overdose of propofol.

AEG Live lawyers argue it was Jackson who chose and supervised Murray and that their executives had no way of knowing about the dangerous propofol treatments being administered in the privacy of Jackson's home.

Houghdahl's e-mail came during a "highly charged time" when there was doubt the show would be ready for its London debut in July of that year, Phillips testified Friday.

Phillips met with Dr. Murray, Michael Jackson and Ortega at Jackson's home a day after getting the Houghdahl e-mails, according to testimony.

While Jackson lawyers argue that meeting was intended to pressure Murray to make sure Jackson was ready for rehearsals, AEG lawyers contend Dr. Murray assured producers nothing was wrong with him.

'Miracle' of Jackson's concert announcement described

AEG's lawyer showed jurors a clip Thursday of Jackson performing several non-consecutive 360............-degree spins while rehearsing his song "Billie Jean" on June 5, 2009.

Phillips described them as "multiple 360............ spins," although conceding he was not a choreographer.

Jackson lawyers, in their rebuttal Friday, showed the jurors the side-by-side comparison of the routine in 2001 and the one weeks before Jackson's death that was seen in the "This Is It" do***entary made from rehearsal video.

"Anywhere in the movie does it show Michael Jackson doing multiple 360............ spins?" Jackson lawyer Brian Panish asked Phillips.

"No," Phillips said.

Debbie Rowe will be attending family therapy with Paris Jackson, 15, and is prepared to temporarily move to Los Angeles, to be closer to her daughter, has exclusively learned.

Michael Jackson‘s only daughter, “is doing much, much better since arriving at UCLA. She has been cooperating and participating in her care and Paris’ doctors want Debbie to participate in family therapy,” a source exclusively told Radar.

The teenager had hoped to spend the summer at Debbie’s ranch, “but all of that is now up in the air because of her suicide attempt. Paris will need to be closely monitored when she is released from UCLA. When Paris leaves UCLA she will still be seeing doctors at least three times a week, minimum,” the insider revealed.

As Radar previously reported, Paris cut one of her wrists and took a handful of pills on June 5 in a suicide attempt. We also reported exclusively that she no longer wants to be a plaintiff in her grandmother Katherine Jackson‘s wrongful death suit again AEG, the promoter of what would have been Michael’s final concert.
