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.

I have to take Debbie's side. She seems to be the only one that has her life together. I don't hear of any of the other Jackson brothers running a successful business.

None of these people care about Michael, the kids, or how he wanted them to be raised. Everyone (and then some) in the story above has their own agenda. Give the kids to Diana, she seemed to love michael unconditionally and shes the only one that doesnt have anything to gain!

Michael wanted children. Debbie Rowe was compensated for being the surrogate. The signed agreement was so that she wouldn't file for custody of the children. Now she may have regretted not being in their lives.

Rowe and Jackson had an agreement he would keep the kids she got paid for that and stayed out of their lives. She kept up her end but things have changed.


How come these guys never sponged off of Janet only Michael.

Jackson didn't leave a penny to his family for a reason. The kids are the cash cow now and everybody want's them.

Oh! And she's Mother Theresa? This woman never fooled me. She's a snake of the worst kind! If she had any sensitivity or concern for these kids she would not bring this turmoil into their lives and then splash it on a tabloid site!

This will never end. Look at the choices. A senile old lady controlled by lawyers, or the baby oven for only two of the three kids. I live for the day when the youngest finally says, "call me Blanket again and I will gouge your eyes out!" Hope he's saying it now,
