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.

This disgusting woman sold her children to a black self hating side show freak who wanted some white children to call him daddy. She is the last person who should be criticizing anyone. I have no sympathy for any of them. The children have learned to lie, just like Micheal taught them. They are not even his children. Anyone who pretends to be something they are not is just setting themselves up for misery.

I think she really cares about the kids, she has become close to Paris and something that the girl has told her has made her become very worried about their future. They are her "blood" so she has every right to step in if she thinks that they need help. The lazy brothers need to butt out.

This isn't about "custody" so much as it is about "money" Whoever has these kids has the golden goose.

Why    

Custody is not fought in tabloids . debbie rowe has not and will not file. With her track record she has no leg to stand on. This is one of her schemes she used to blackmail MJ with and expects to be paid.
Court papers dont lie. She testified under oath that Schaffel was an opportunistic vulture preying on Michaels money and a danger to Michael and his kids. The man she called a danger to her kids she is now going to marry. She said repetedly that she didnt want the children, sheonly got them to give them away as a present.
debbie will embarass herself if she goes to court. The Jackson know it. Michaels lawyers know it and she knows it. Prince wants nothing to do with her, wish Paris had done the same , she would not be in trouble now. Waiting patiently for the custody battle in court.

Where are the trustees that built up the estate after MJ died? He left it in a horrid state, owing many millions. Don't the trustees have control over how the money is spent?

I admit, I can't wait to see Jermaine make a butt of himself on Wife Swap. Hope he pays his child support with money earned.
