Debbie Rowe

Deborah Jeanne Rowe aka Debbie Rowe (born Dec 6, 1958) is the dermatologist's nurse who married singer Michael Jackson. She currently lives in Palmdale, California and in Nice, France. Rowe met Jackson when he was diagnosed with vitiligo in 1986. She provided emotional support to Jackson through his changing appearance. Rowe and Jackson were married on November 14, 1996 in Sydney, Australia. They have two children together, son Michael Joseph Jackson Jr (born February 13, 1997) (who publicly goes by the name "Prince") and daughter Paris Katherine Jackson (born April 3, 1998) . They were divorced on October 8, 1999. At the time of their divorce, which became final in 2000, she filed to terminate her parental rights. In 2001 the court accepted her declaration. After Jackson's arrest in 2003 she filed for temporary custody alleging that she became concerned that during the criminal case, Jackson would be too distracted to care for the children Rowe testified for Jackson at his molestation trial, describing him as a loving and caring father. She said in documents that she last saw the children in 2005 and had not seen them since Jackson left the United States shortly after his trial
