Debbie Rowe

I'm Going to Court

To Get Michael Jackson's Kids

EXCLUSIVE

Debbie Rowe Michael Jackson Kids Custody
Debbie Rowe
will wage legal war to get guardianship of the 2 kids she had with Michael Jackson ... and if she could she'd gladly take all 3.

Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... Rowe is deeply concerned about the environment in the Jackson home.  She likes Katherine Jackson but believes she has gotten way too old to serve as guardian ... "Katherine's not connected with the kids or involved in their lives" Rowe told a friend.

Rowe is also concerned Michael's brothers are hanging around the Calabasas house a lot and have been a terrible influence.  She's complained Prince has developed a filthy mouth and is rebellious because no one is even trying to keep him in line.

Rowe is especially upset with Jermaine, who will appear on "Celebrity Wife Swap."  Rowe thinks he's just plain creepy and extremely inappropriate, and wants him as far away from the kids as possible.

She feels Blanket --- the 12-year-old who is not her biological kid -- is actually the most vulnerable and most in danger.

As for Paris ... Rowe fears she's not made the kind of improvement which is necessary after her suicide attempt and wants control so she can take steps to ensure her safety.

TJ Jackson is a co-guardian ... we're told Rowe likes him but is worried that he's been on tour and away from the kids for long stretches.

Rowe will file legal docs asking the judge to appoint her guardian so she can move the children to her ranch in Palmdale CA, where she has a business raising and breeding horses. 

Fact is ... Rowe has not asked the Estate for money and our sources say she's not interested in a payday.  She wants the kids because she loves them and fears for their well-being.

She's baaaack    

She might be the biological mother of Prince and Paris but I don't think any of those kids share paternal parentage. The youngest one doesn't even know who his mother is. What a mess.

Wow ...    

Does this have something to do with her engagement to Michael's old business manager? Why now? Why not years ago???? I am no Jackson Family fan, I think they all have issues. It just seems a little coincidental the woman NOW wants to step up to the plate...

Tabloids and the ppl who comment under their shady stories, always had horrible things to say about this lady, but to me, she seems like she genuinely loves these kids. I hope she gets them so MJ's relatives cant keep cashing in on these kids and neglecting simple things they need to prosper and function. Sad situation, all around.

Blanket used to be cute with his long hair. Time to cut it.

They're all crazy & disgusting. The only thing these kids have is a ton of money & a lifetime of sick drama in their future.

Who'da thought the day would come when Debbie Rowe would be the best parental option in this situation? But at this point, she does. Those poor kids. I hope she gets them, but it's probably too late.

Don't know who dad was, but Paris and Prince both look like her-especially around the mouth and chin.

This is great news for the kids. I trust her more to preserve the $$ for the kids. This is the best thing that could happen.

Seems there's no reaally good place for these children but maybe she would be the lesser of the evils they are stuck with for the time being.

all 3 kids look like a bunch of snotnose little brats. Wonder which one will have the drug problem and be arrest 1st. And for christs sake, get rid of the name Blanket. What a freakin stupid name, the kid will probably grow up getting his ass kicked.

Good for her! It's about time someone take a real concern in these children and not their paydays! The Jackson family is all messed up! Michael never wanted them around his family for a reason. You go girl!

These are high profiled kids and they'll need constant protection from the wackos that'll try to harm them. Can Ms. Rowe provide that?
