Michael Jackson’s ex-wife Debbie Rowe said “hell no” to wanting custody of her two kids, Michael Jr., 12, and Paris, 11, according to emails that were made public.
Rebecca White, a close friend of Rowe, told Extra about a series of emails she received from Rowe regarding the kids including this nugget from June 5th:
“My lawyer is telling me I have to take some responsibility about the welfare of the children. Do I want the kids? Hell no. Does it look good for me to ask for them? Absolutely. I don’t want to look like the woman who gave away her kids and just forgot about them.”
Wow. To make matters worse, White explained that Rowe said “…everything will be done after the 14th.” Sure enough, The Post reported that Rowe made a deal with Katherine Jackson, Michael’s mother, to give up the kids for $4 million.
Rowe’s lawyer Eric George denied the story that Rowe accepted money to give up her custody rights. I’m sure the truth will come out, but Rowe did accept $8 million after giving up the children to Jackson when they divorced, plus $900, 000 in yearly payments for five years.
And, in 2005, Rowe reclaimed her parental rights when Jackson was accused of child molestation, only to give them up again, this time for $4 million and a $900,000 home.
So, do you think Rowe received the big bucks once again to leave the children? It’s awful to even think about it.
