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 ugly, ungodly looking sea serpent needs to have a seat in the invisible chair. Her role as a breeder is done. Hopefully this frog faced demon did not transfer too many of her bull faced, sloppy , coo coo for coco puffs, dog looking canine genes off on those kids. A nurse maid turned millionaire for breeding purposes? What nerve.

I wish the best for the children. Being around ungrateful sponges is not good for them. Plus, the sponges have a huge entitlement mentality that could rubbed onto the children. The Jackson Brothers had their chance when they were young and they blew it.

Its amazing that Katherine is not saying anything but the boys are speaking out like they are the guardians. The kids will have a better quality of life on the ranch which will provide less distraction then the big city while they finish growing up.

Supposing Debbie gets the kids,she won't get a dime .According to Michael's will the only beneficiaries are his mother and children,so it's ridiculous to say she is motivated by money.

If she marries Shafel,i don't believe the children will agree to live under the same roof.

oh really     

WHY is this mother of the year , marrying a guy she has said , under oath was using Michael Jackson for money , was an opportunistic vulture when it came to MJ and discussing the children she gave birth to , for money ....... ,on a gossip site ...
Now she wants to let this guy into Michaels childrens lives...
Please dont tell me she is their mother..DNA doesnt make someone a mother
She is on tape saying she wasnt referred to as their mother , because she didnt want to be..
great gal..
Here comes the 5 yr anniversary of Michaels death, and we not only have Wade Robson, smearing his old friend, looking for money , but these kids own mother and her new boyfriend.

It takes hard work and dedication to trade your kids for millions of $$, a ranch and some horses.

And just WHO are these SOURCES?

I don't believe everything you post TMZ, for good reason. Until Rowe actually waves the court papers for this action, your report is just the words of an unknown, untrustworthy blabbermouth.
