Debbie Rowe

Michael's Brothers are Greedy Slackers

4/13/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Debbie Rowe is scoffing at members of the Jackson family who claim she abandoned her children for Michael Jackson's money ... saying it's a classic case of the pot calling the kettle black.

Sources connected to Rowe say Debbie expected Jermaine, Randy, Tito and Jackie to attack her when word got out -- via TMZ -- that she would fight for the guardianship of Paris and Prince.

Michael's brothers came out swinging, saying Rowe took Michael's money and then ran away from her kids and her responsibilities.

But our sources say Rowe is pissed but not surprised at the attack, insisting she never abandoned her kids.  She says Michael constantly called her for parenting advice and she was always there for him and the children.

She also says Michael often told her the only sibling with any talent was Janet, and the others turned sponging off him into an art form.

Rowe -- who would also like to become Blanket's guardian -- is deeply fearful the kids have no proper supervision.  She thinks Katherine is a good woman but way too old and slow to care for the kids, and she thinks Michael's siblings all couldn't give a crap and they are all bad influences.

Rowe believes MJ's brothers oppose her plan to seek guardianship because they know if that happens a huge chunk of the money Katherine gets from the MJ Estate -- more than $50K in child support -- will dry up.

Rowe is saying she wants to move the kids to her ranch in Palmdale, where she has a successful horse breeding business.

She's not outdone for sure!!! As greedy as the Jacksons brothers!!! And what a BIG CRAP, Michael called her for parenting advices!!!! If Michael trusted her so much he would have left his children with her, but he only mentioned her in his will to say that he did not want to support her greedy ass anymore, and for a very good reason considering all the years she blackmailed him every time she wanted more money. And when she wanted to buy the ranch for which she now prides so much, she previously forced Michael to pay for the taxes of the Beverly Hills home he had bought her as a "gift" when she decided to sell it to buy the ranch, ALL with Michael Jackson's money. She also blackmailed him during the 2005 trial threatening to fight him for the custody of Prince and Paris until gladly gave up when Michael paid her extra money!!! She was never part of the children's lives, she always stated that was not interested in being a mother and only in 2009 she had contacts with Prince and Paris through Katherine, but first they had to tell the children who she was. If the Jacksons brothers are bad influences she also is, if not more, she was the one who sold info and pics of Paris after her suicide attempt and surely pushed her to post a pic of herself on instagram. She likes all the publicity she can get by being the mother of Michael Jackson's children and couldn't really give a crap about them. Unfortunately now the children are only surrounded by greedy people who in turn pretend to spread love and concerning to win the money. A bunch of greedy money-grabbers willing to anything for money.

Debbie's right,
So who's worse,Debbie who was bullied into taking money or Wacko Jacko who paid millions for children that weren't even his Bio kids,so he could fool his crazy rabid fans,pretending to look "Straight" while molesting little boys & having sex with his Gay boyfriend Jason?

Then choosing drugs over his kids who he never wanted anyway?

The Jackson four,the root of all evil in the Jackson family.

i wonder if this is some sort of shake down? debbie has not filed any papers yet, just made it known via tmz that she plans to. i suspect she is looking for some sort of pay off from the jackson estate. when she gets if, there will be some sort of excuse about why she didn't go ahead with the court action.

Once again, TMZ is being media garb. Debbie is an opportunist and that is WELL do***ented. The poor kids didn't ask to be here.

And their brother MJ was a child molesting homosexual pedophile.

Those children have no good option, but they're certainly better off anywhere other than with that warped, blood-sucking leech of a "family." At least with Debbie Rowe they'll gain more perspective about the Jackons and will be better prepared as adults to fend them off when they try manipulate and control them.

I wonder if the remaining members of the Jackson 5 know the words to the Jim Croce song "Working At The Car Wash Blues." If not, they should learn it as it would be nice if they could sing about the profession that will be theirs when KJ kicks the bucket.

Well, I figured that Jermaine would come out swinging - "he who has not paid child support on a regular basis would talk the loudest". G-Ma paid them on a monthly basis to try to keeping up their lifestyle. Their Vegas shows were not sell outs so Planet Hollywood ended them weeks before they were scheduled. They were loosing money. Who in their right mind would pay $400 to meet and greet them? Someone out of their minds. And they waited until Michael left this earth to go back on the road? Jermaine you can't sing Michael's parts to save your life ! Debbie do what you need to do to get the kids on the right track, especially if they are not being supervised.

I really wonder if a lesbian incubator is the proper person to raise MJ's three "children."

She should get custody and raise them in Palmdale. They will be addicted to meth before Easter

Go for it Debbie. So many people talk as if they were privy to all the details. Nobody but you and Michael know the truth. It is my belief that as a young woman you made a lot of mistakes in the name of love. Although I can never imagine doing as you did you are much older and wiser now. No one can take your place in their life. And as far as the money goes.... Take will need it to protect those children from all the crazies in the world that think they deserve our hate just for being born. And as far as Jermaine is concerned...Don't waste your time commenting on his crazy statements. Anyone who has even heard of the Jackson's know what kind of crazy that is and any family that would pick him as their spokesman isn't far behind.

Slackers? Those guys have been working since they were kids and do a show in Vegas right now. Debbie is a Jay Leno chin THOT who used to give head behind the bleachers at Hollywood High school. She is talking tough since she married that Dr Phil mini me.
