Debbie Rowe

Michael's Brothers are Greedy Slackers

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.

Too late Debbie, for you to seek custody Prince, will be 18, soon (he does not like you), I doubt he will leave Blanket, behind to live you.

Paris, will be 17, she is also old enough to decide where she want to live.

Do not know if this is true but I read that MJ's estate is grooming Prince, when he turns 18, to seek legal guardian of Paris and Blanket.

These kids will be of adult age before this lawsuit settles. Why even bother?

The jacksons and debbie are both unfit. They are better living with Diana Ross. Jacksons are moochers and debbie is shady.

Poor kids !!!!!!!!!!!!. Debbie should have fought to get custody of all the children and keep them together as Michael did,right after his tragic murder!!!!

Knowing Katherine was too old to take care of them how did she trust k and TJ ?

Why is debbie even bothering. Paris and Prince will be 18 in 2 or 3 years.

I'm usually anti plastic surgery. But Debbie needs a freaking face lift. The woman is in her 50s but looks older then my 83 year old grandma.

I agree that Katherine seems like a great woman but is way too old to be raising kids and probably has a nanny or someone do it for her. The brothers have hsponged off Micheael's money since the Jackson Five days, and from what I have read Debbie Rowe has always been a wacko unless she has settled down in her old age. The kids would hopefully have more of a normal life with her though

I think that the kids should choose. At least the 2 that are hers. I agree that Katherine seems like a wonderful woman, but she is too old and I bet she has a nanny to watch them anyway. The brothers would be nowhere without Michael's money, do they even work other than sing and try to make money off their last name? From what I have read in the past, Debbie seemed like a wacko, but I think she cares for them and wants the best for them. Hopefully they would have more of a "normal" life with her.

It's always about the money for the Jackson's. They don't care about those kids. Debbie will win because those kids have her DNA and no judge will agree that any member of the Jackson Family is a fit guardian. Especially when the court looks into how these people live off the kids' money for their own personal expenses. If it goes to court it should be very funny to watch

This is exactly why I keep saying its too late and leave the kids alone. Please be a little more sensitive with your comments, you know the kids are reading this.
