Don’t count Debbie Rowe out of the custody mix quite yet! Her lawyer will be attending next Monday’s custody hearing which will determine who will get Michael Jackson’s kids.
Rowe’s lawyer Marta Almli insisted earlier this week that her client is in fact the biological mother of Prince and Paris, contrary to reports that state otherwise.
Debbie was excluded from Michael’s will, but this may be her last shot to get some kind of compensation from the late Michael Jackson.
Let’s not forget, however, that Debbie was paid a multi-million dollar settlement back in 2002, at which time she also relinquished all parental rights.
As for the children, there’s a slight chance they could get split up, since Michael’s third child Blanket came from a different mother. But at least until Monday, Katherine remains the sole guardian of all three children.
During a phone interview with NBCLA, Rowe reportedly told reporter Chuck Henry, "I want my kids."
We hope for their sake, that the court rules in favor of the children staying together with Katherine.
