Debbie Rowe: Guardian of Paris Jackson ... If Teen Makes the Request

Is Debbie Rowe poised to become Paris Jackson's legal guardian after all these years?

If the 15-year-old wants it, and she very well might, in light of recent events, it's likely.

The custody judge in the teen's guardianship case has ordered an investigation into her welfare after the stunning Paris Jackson suicide attempt last week.

Debbie Rowe has, thus far, made no attempt to become Paris' legal guardian. That title belongs to Katherine Jackson, Michael's mother, and T.J. Jackson.

T.J., Tito's son, is Paris' cousin. He was installed as co-guardian last summer, but all of this could change if the judge deems it in Paris' best interest.

With his own wife and kids, T.J.'s role has been marginal, according to TMZ, and Paris feels that Katherine, while loving, is not "connected" to her life.

Paris and Debbie have developed an intense relationship in recent months, and the judge will no doubt weigh this factor if Paris pushes for a change.

Moreover, if Paris Jackson wants Debbie Rowe as her guardian, which insiders say it's a "likely" scenario, Debbie would gladly accept the responsibility.

When Michael Jackson died in June 2009, Debbie voiced concern about the welfare of her children, Paris and Prince, but accepted Katherine as guardian.

As long as the kids were protected, she has never made an effort to be involved, but things changed recently when Paris started reaching out to her.

Debbie never waived her right to a guardianship, as some sources have erroneously reported, and a judge would no doubt take her overtures seriously.

Not only is she her biological mother, but she's forged a real bond with her lately. Do you think maybe this change is just what the youngster needs?


Paris, might NEED her birth mother NOW. I just hope that Debbie Rowe doesn't WAIT too long. The girl wanted some SERIOUS ATTENTION and NOW she is getting it. If she really wanted to COMMIT in the final step, she wouldn't of made a *911* call. Debbie, for the LOVE of God, don't wait too long. Did you ever ASK her if she wanted you in her life NOW? Sometimes, it just takes a little INTUITION and t hings might get SOLVED for the BETTER.


This may be the best. I am not sure all the sordid details of Debbie and Micheal's divorce but a old lady isn't really a good guardian and if Debbie can be in her life that is a good thing!

I am glad to see mother and daughter reunite. This is really good for Paris. I'm sorry but when Katherine Jackson disappeared last year and didn't say where she was or have any contact with the kids that just showed she is only in it for Michaels money she doesn't really care much about the kids and is disconnected emotionally from them. Debbie only stayed out of it cause she thought that was Michael wish and she honored it. Debbie is a very stable person and Paris needs her mother. Katherine is too old and all the other Jacksons are to selfish. You go Debbie get your daughter back and show her a real mothers love !!!

VERY nicely stated, Jeannine! Debbie as a mother, should BE THERE for her kids anyway now, that Michael is gone. She honored his wishes, NOW it is her responsibility IF she wants it.


Paris needs love if Debbie can love her like Michael did then she should be with her. Michael would never want his children testifying over money.


I hope Paris goes with her mother!! Go Debbie!!


don't talk: LET'S DO IT!!

This sweet child had her whole world swept out from under her when her overprotective father passed. The whole Jackson clan seems only interested in Michaels money. I have often hoped that Debbie Rowe would step up for her kids and was thrilled to see that happening. I applaud her efforts and hope everything works out for them both.


I think Paris feels like her whole world is crashing in on her. She's lost the most important person in her life her dad. The way that family fights over money it's apparent Michael's kids aren't the most important thing to that family. His family has failed in every aspect of caring for Michael's kids even Katherine. Therefore Debbie may very well be the best choice for Paris right now. She needs someone she can bond with while regaining a feeling of security and being loved.


Yes! I think Paris is at an age where she needs her mother more now than ever. And while this whole arrangement is a bit convuluted, Debbie would be the best choice for her. Her aunts are not an option and Katherine is getting too old to raise teenagers.
