Debbie Rowe

I'm Going to Court

To Get Michael Jackson's Kids

4/11/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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 should have done this ages ago. She seemed very gullible with the entire MJ "relationship"/situation.

Good for her. See the "grandparent" section of

I doubt Debbie can fix anything. They've lived a certain lifestyle their whole lives. Suddenly changing their environment will have it's backlashes. Especially if they're not willing to go along with it. Paris might be okay with it... But Prince, I'm not too sure that'll go far knowing that he's currently already in a rebellious stage. She can't suddenly become a mother so easily. You grow with your kids as a parent and get used to the responsibility as they grow and change. To jump right into it at their age is a huge jump. I commend her for wanting to, but it's a little too late. She should have been in their lives from the beginning instead if being paid off to stay away.

Glad to hear this. I wish she would have done it sooner…feel sorry for Blanket if she doesn't get him. I agree with her assessment of Jermaine. He does seem a little creepy.

They're creepy and they're kooky,
Mysterious and spooky,
They're all together ooky,
The Jackson Family.

Their house is a museum
Where Oprah come to see 'em
They really are a scream
The Jackson Family.


So Mikey's good & dead
No more boys in his piss soaked bed
he'd fill them full of dread
The Jackson Family.

what ethnic background is blanket?

I think its a fantastic idea! It would do them the world of good to get them away from hollywood and out the spotlight. She seems a hell of a lot more stable than the jacksons and I dont see her using the kids for a quick buck or trying to turn them into stars for her own personal gain because if she breeds horses and runs a ranch chances are she has her own steady income.

Hope she gets custody.

It's nice to see someone actually looking out for the children's best interest for once, I hope she wins this case, but I'd imagine it isn't going to be cheap or easy to do!
