Debbie Rowe to Attend Custody Hearing; Intentions Unclear

by at . Comments

Debbie Rowe, the ex-wife and biological mother to two of Michael Jackson's three children, has kept a low profile since the icon's death on June 25.

But now that a hearing has been scheduled at Los Angeles Superior Court July 20 for temporary guardianship of the children, Rowe will be seen.

"[Debbie] says that she will definitely be at the custody hearing," says Marc Schaffel, a business partner of Jackson's and a close friend of Rowe's.

Rowe's children – Prince Michael and Paris Jackson, 12 and 11 – have been staying with their grandmother Katherine Jackson at her Encino, Calif., home since the star singer's death, along with Blanket (Prince Michael Jackson II), 7.

Jackson's youngest child was born from an unidentified surrogate.

While Debbie Rowe famously tried to give up parental rights to Prince Michael and Paris - and still to this day extols Michael Jackson's virtues as a father - her lawyer says she will fight for custody now. Whether she'll get it is unclear.

Katherine Jackson was named guardian in Jackson’s will, which was revealed last week, and is petitioning the court to keep the children with her.

Neither party is required to appear personally in court, officials say.

What do you think? Should Debbie Rowe get custody?

I don't think Debbie should get the kids or any money as stated in MJ's will if she does this is just another problem that Family Court should reform, which is to respect Fathers rights and not allow devient hungry for cash mothers to cash in.
