Debbie Rowe will marry her longtime friend Marc Schaffel, sources confirm. It will be the second marriage for Rowe, who was famously married to Michael Jackson.

Rowe had two kids while she was married to the King of Pop, Prince Michael Jackson and Paris Jackson. He adopted a third, Blanket (Prince II) later in life.

She and Marc Schaffel have been close for a long time, and initially, when gave her an engagement ring three weeks ago, she turned him down. Why?

Debbie Rowe has been going through some serious medical issues, and feared at the time that she had terminal cancer and wouldn't marry as a result.

However, Rowe received word from doctors this week that she actually has sarcoidosis, an auto-immune disease which is NOT cancer or life-threatening.

She then decided to say yes to Schaffel's proposal.

"He loves me, knows my kids, loves my kids and we'll see where this goes," Rowe says, noting that they have not set a date, but are definitely tying the knot.

Debbie has developed an extremely close relationship with Paris Jackson in the past year and a half; presumably Marc has become close with her as well.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
