Home Celebrity Michael Jackson’s Kids: Spending Time with Debbie Rowe

Michael Jackson‘s kids, Prince and Paris, have been spending time with their biological mother, Debbie Rowe.

Rowe has also included Blanket, aka Prince Michael II, in the visits, according to sources. Blanket’s biological mother is unknown.

This might be the best news to come out of the long year since Michael Jackson died. The anniversary, on Friday, June 25th, is sparking dozens of stories, mostly false, about the Jackson kids and anything to do with Michael Jackson. It’s going to be a wild week, that’s for sure!

The reality is that Rowe, who was married to Jackson when she gave birth to Prince and then Paris, has forged a relationship not only with the children but with Katherine Jackson, their guardian and Michael’s mother. The visits have happened quietly, with no fanfare or publicity.

Rowe–who raises and sells horses in Southern California– retained her parental rights when she divorced Jackson. A family court judge reaffirmed that in 2006.

This week, however, all members of this saga will be out of town as fans descend on various locations to commemorate the anniversary of Michael’s death.

According to my sources, the Jackson kids are doing fine. They will, indeed, attend private school this fall.

But I am also told that it’s incorrect, as was reported Sunday from the British press, that the children have “no friends.” They have plenty of friends among their similarly aged cousins. And once they’re in school, they will undoubtedly make friends.

It wouldn’t have been easy for them in the first place. From June 2005 until last June–four years–the children were dragged by Jackson from one locale to another–Bahrain, Ireland, Japan, France, Las Vegas, northern Virginia, suburban New Jersey, and then finally a rented house in Beverly Hills.

  1. Debbie has sone more to honor MJ by not exploiting the kids like some people have.
    The kids knew she was their mother already. And Katherine should honor the agreement. She can’t go into court and pretend she’ll comply then turn on her word.
    Debbie cares, she did carry those kids in her womb and she loved Michael.
    It was a regular thing, but when MJ was living she didn’t have to worry. Since he died it’s a whole different story.

  2. i can relate to Eve, ma dad was worse than joe jackson he used to beat us everyday, this really destroyed my life i dont even understand maself.

    Am a loner and the worst thing is that no one understands me. Am 29yrs and i dont have a college degree, i ‘ve enrolled in three different colleges since 2005 to date but i end up dropping(not bad behaviour) why i dont know. I’ve been married for 4yrs and no kids, yet ma husband is working with a good job but how am i going to care for the child if am confused myself .it bcomes very hard to cope or behave like a normal person after being abused as a child, your life just bcomes upside down.

    I remember mike saying that he felt so lonely, he used to cry behind closed doors, it’s hard to believe that someone like him who was celebrated, cherished and surrounded by fans all over the world would feel that way, yes u can it’s just that the feeling is so strong u cant help it. It has happened to me so many times and u wonder why u have to pay for the sins of a grownup who is probably enjoying himself somewhere and your life is so miserable.

    I love Mike not bcoz he was a great musician but my friend too. Atleast i have felt at one point in life how he felt (sad,loneliness, despair etc). His song “you are not alone” used to comfort me alot , i felt so cared for, so far away but so close to ma heart, its amazing he had his problems but found time for others who most probably trashed him.

    When mike passed away i lost a secret friend that only i and those closed doors knew about. I was desperate for the first time in ma life wanted to die i wished God would struck me dead like a lightening. I felt for his children how they are so young and maybe mike would have given them what he never got from Joe a Daddy!

    I wonder whether media pple know that God gives pple oppotunities no matter where they are to change lives of pple they come across for better or does it work the opposite for u. How do u feel when u go home with a very big smile thinking ‘oh tomorrow they are gonna read about him and they are gonna hate him, he will be embarassed he will not leave his house for weeks and when he die due to stress or depression am gonna have a very big story to sell and i will make so much money i wil buy a jet.

    We can be humans no matter what our proffessions are! May God bless his kids, they wil be Great, one day just like their Dad bcoz they have his foundation. I hope to shake hands one day with any of u. lOTS OF LOVE!

  3. Michael was not DRAGGING his kids, think of the education and worldly travel he gave them. He introduced them to many cultures and I am sure to love all people, that is what Michael was all about. Stop the negativity please, and let him RIP!

  4. A note to EVE my dear your letter moved me so much, there’s so much heart and feeling in your letter, you gave me a tear and I found it very hard to read. I have never been in your situation, but totally understand where you are coming from. Coming from a family where my parents for over 40years, have devoted there lives to help children in abusive situations, I have seen the pain you had endure through your life.
    All I would like to say is There are people out there that do love you, the hurdles you have crossed so far have made you a stronger person, Michael has (had)so much love to give us all. And as you said he still had to live with the lies the media, and people in general accused him of. It all takes it toll. We can only take so much, but Please be strong, Michael & his fans love is with you.

  5. @Eve…I always try to tell people that Michael Jackson was a human being. He was not perfect, he had faults like we all do. But he was not the monster that the media and other have tried to make him out to be. I enjoy reading your comments Eve. Thank you. There will always be a special place in my heart for Michael. I just connected with him from the time he hit the public stage, and I grew up with him. Believed in him when others walked way. I will never forget him. As for Michael’s kids spending time with Debbie. I always thought she cared for Michael, she did him a favor and had Prince and Paris for Michael, because he wanted to be a father. And listening to people who saw him with the kids, he was a good father. If it is true about Debbie spending time with the kids, I hope it’s not about the money.

  9. @ SoCalGal: Thank you so much, I couldn’t have said it better. I also have the HIGHEST respect for Michael for lasting as long as he did. Michael was actually THE poster child for the effects of child abuse; he deserved compassion not scorn from the media and the public.

    Like Joe, my father used to beat and insult me when I was as a kid. Some victims are hardened by abuse (like Jermaine and Randy), others (like Michael and me) are weakened by it. Unless someone stands up to the abuser (Katherine never did; my mother died), wounded survivors spend the rest of their feeling like they deserve to be mistreated. That’s why women who were abused as kids stay with violent parents no matter how much therapy they get; they don’t BELIEVE that they deserve better. IF YOU KNOW A KID WHO IS BEING ABUSED, TELL HIM/HER THAT THEY’RE SPECIAL AND DO NOT DESERVE TO GET HIT OR PUT DOWN.

    What many do not understand is that the effects of child abuse truly surface when survivors grow up: they have to cope with pressures, responsibilities and expectations, and form intimate relationships, but they don’t have the self-esteem, self-confidence or “know how” to pull it off. What seems like minor obstacles or setbacks for ‘normal’ people are often catastrophic disasters for me because I automatically associate mistakes with severe punishment. Wounded abuse survivors live with some form of PTSD and chronic anxiety for the rest of their lives, with tragic and stressful events often compounding on top of each other, as they get older. MICHAEL HAD THE ADDED BURDEN OF LIVING IN THE SPOTLIGHT WITH PEOPLE ROOTING FOR HIM TO FAIL.

    Many Americans had more sympathy for Michael Vicks’ dogs than they did for Michael Jackson. The same people who jump on soap boxes to rant against child abuse (i.e. Gloria Alred, Diane Diamond, Bill O’Reilly) spit on adults who live with the legacy of being treated like an animal. These hypocrites argue that Michael was a freaky abuser because he was abused. What they don’t understand is that adults who seem “crazy”, weak, whiny or pathetic are HARMLESS; they are too busy licking their own wounds to prey on anyone – WOUNDED ANIMALS DON’T HUNT!!! I was molested as a child, and sexually assaulted as an adult so I can tell you that MICHAEL COULD NOT MOLEST A HAM SANDWICH. They might as well accuse Elmo of being a closeted sexual predator – it makes no sense whatsoever. Michael was more afraid of people than they ever needed to be afraid of him. It’s the abuse survivors who seem “NORMAL” that the public should worry about. Because they’ve learned to accept and rationalize the abuser’s motives and identify their aggressor as a model of a powerful individual, they tend to abuse others when they grow up. They adopt a: “It didn’t bother me, so why should it bother you” mentally. Abusers are smooth, confident, intrusive, selfish, and become violent when they feel provoked. That’s how Jermaine really is behind his false charm. He openly disrespected his current wife during episodes of “The Jackson Family Dynasty” by treating her like a servant. His first wife Hazel Gordy and ex-girlfriend Margaret Maldonado alleged that he beat and sexually assaulted them, and used to beat his kids at Hayvenhurst – oh and guess what? Katherine said and did nothing about it; she will always turn a blind eye to abusive behavior. Randy is known to have a nasty temper and used his vehicle to barge through the gates of Michael’s rented home in Las Vegas.

    I roll my eyes whenever people say that Michael should have gotten professional help. I’ve been in and out of therapy since I was 16 and can tell you that mental health treatment is inadequate. Therapists can listen and validate your feelings but they don’t know how to solve your problems, and they are NOT invested in your life. Survivors need consistent emotional support from friends and mentors to overcome their past; Michael had more parasitic opportunists than real friends.

    Like Michael, I was prescribed benzodiazepines (i.e. Ativan, Xanax) for insomnia and anxiety and became addicted to them after 2 months. I needed more and more pills to fall asleep and experienced nasty withdrawls when I stopped taking them. Doctors don’t tell you that they’re more addictive than heroin, yet you’re blamed for becoming a drug addict. The side effects for benzos and other sleep medications are awful and include drowsiness, motor in-coordination, memory loss and dry mouth. Imagine trying to sing and dance with these drugs in your system, or do desk work for that matter? Dr. Murray gave Michael high doses of benzos, which alone can stop your breathing, then topped that off with Diprivan. I totally understand why Michael would want Diprivan to sleep at night; he just wanted to be able to perform the next day. He would be alive today if Dr. Murray was monitoring his oxygen saturation levels. GROSS NEGLIGENCE IS THE REAL REASON WHY MICHAEL DIED but the media will never emphasize that, or even discuss the crisis of chronic insomnia and anxiety in modern societies; it’s easier to blame Michael for his drug addiction.

  10. I am glad they are seeing their mother and she is in their lives. I think people need to back off criticising debbie because only she and MJ know the true story.

  11. please,parents, love ur kids. that is how mike love is own kids.so pls, let stop,bring up the name. pls when u say the badthing’s about him, it’s herdful, n painful.pls feel it.

  12. lO UNICO CIERTO E IMPORTANTE ES QUE MICHAEL AMABA A SUS HIJOS Y NO LOS ARRASTRABA SINO QUE PREFERIA TENERLOS CERCA SIEMPRE Y QUE CONOCIERAN SU MUNDO. PARA ESO ERA PAPA Y MAMA. VIVA MICHAEL POR SIEMPRE.

  13. I normally pass up these ignorant A__ articles and their writers. Just another back hand slap on Jackson. Hey look this Black couldn’t do anything right, except sing and dance. But this crap pissed me off.
    What does who Blanket’s is mother got to do with the story? Brad and Angie take their kids with them everywhere they go around the world, but this crud don’t call it dragging them around. People like this really hate they can’t use the “P” card anymore since Jackson’s FBI File was released so they find other ways to demean his imagine while making money off him.

  14. “It wouldn’t have been easy for them in the first place. From June 2005 until last June–four years–the children were dragged by Jackson from one locale to another–Bahrain, Ireland, Japan, France, Las Vegas, northern Virginia, suburban New Jersey, and then finally a rented house in Beverly Hills.”

    You just HAD to throw that little zinger in there didn’t you? Most celebrities travel with their children especially actors for months at a time and I don’t see that being mentioned.

  15. I’m glad they are seeing their mother.It was about time.What’s debbie’s is theirs. I am sure they will have a great time on the farm, playing with the animals, enjoying the piece and quiet. I’ve heard debbie is a very nice and private person.

  16. Great news they are seeing their mom !!! Finally. This should have happened all along.It is going to be beneficial for the children development , and it will be very good once they’ll be going to school. MJs three won’t feel different than the other kids. they at least have a mother.

  17. The children attended school when they lived in Ireland and Bahrain, so it’s not a new experience for them. And they’ve been photographed with friends other than their cousins. Their lives are difficult enough – no need for the media to embellish the hardship.

    One hopes that Debbie Rowe’s motives are sincere. It’s not true that she “would have taken half of what he earned while married and she didn’t”. She and MJ weren’t married that long, he gave her millions when they split up and afterward, and it’s unlikely that they married without a pre-nup.

  18. Marc “porn producer” Schaffel gets an exclusive to sell to the highest bidder while Deb is ACTUALLY making her visits… Yeah, like that ain’t connected? Sounds like Katherine’s getting squeezed for those kids just like MJ used to.

  19. The children should have their mother in their lives, the world knows that they have a mother and it’s only right that they are in each other’s lives. With the children going off the school in the fall for the first time, there is a lot of things that must be dealt with so that they are stable and do great in unfamliar surroundings.

    When a maried couple divorces, monetary settlements are always dealt with. If she only wanted money from Michael, she would have taken half of what he earned while married and she didn’t. We weren’t privilage to their custody arraingments or other details. Stop judging this woman because in the end, you are also judging Michael for providing alimony or would you rather people call it a PAY OFF?

  20. “MJ ESTATE FACING HUGE DEBT”
    Although the executors of Michael Jackson’s estate have settled most of his financial woes, they are struggling with a $300 million loan due at the end of the year.

    The massive loan from Barclays PLC, which is backed by his 50% stake in SONY/ATV, matures at the end of the year.

    In order to secure the loan in 2006, Michael looked to Sony for help even though he was already close to defaulting on a $270 million loan held by hedge fund Fortress Investment Group LLC.

    The Jackson estate and Sony have discussed whether the company will guarantee refinancing of the debt backed by Michael’s Sony/ATV stake.

    And Sony wants them to do so! It could mean them paying hundreds of millions for a catalog that he already controls.

    Considering the mess they got the Jackson family out of already, we’re sure the executors will figure something out!

    ___________________________________________________________________

    CODE RED!!!!!! CODE RED!!!!! SONY, YES $SONY IS TRYING TO BUY BACK MICHAEL’S SHARE OF THE BEATLES CATALOG TO SETTLE THE “DEBT”. MCCLAIN & BRANCA ARE GONNA SELL THAT THING. ALL OF US WHO WERE WISE TO THE GIGANTIC WEB OF DECEIT SAW THIS COMING. OPEN YOUR EYES MJ FANS!!!!!! THERE WASN’T ANYTHING ACCIDENTAL ABOUT THE EVENT THAT OCCURED ON JUNE 25, 2009. W——–A—–K——-E U——-P!!

  21. I would hate to think Debbie is positioning herself to step in and fight for the kids in the event something does happen to Katherine.

    I hope she is really trying to establish a loving relationship with her children.

  22. don’t believe anything you read by freidman or any of the tabloid press – and nowadays all media is tabloid. the truth is completely irrelevant to them – they invent things out of thin air if they think it will cause scandal or sell and they promise people if they say lies about whoever they want to be vicious to at the moment they will pay them very large sums of money – and they do pay. Just stating the facts – something you wont see from the press.

  23. Wish I coulda been been “dragged” around the world in luxury like Mike’s kids. Would have loved all that attention from my dad!

  24. I am pleased Katherine and Debbie are at peace.
    It was good to read Debbie has spent time with
    Michael’s children. Every child needs all the
    love they can get.

    I am so happy Michael Jackson was able to travel
    with his children and show them some of the sites of Planet Earth.
    I understand his children loved living in Ireland, and
    that they speak multiple languages.

    My prayer is that God will Bless Michael Jackson’s children: Prince, Paris, and Blanket, and allow their father to continue to watch over them.

    Every time I see a smile on the face of Prince, Paris, or Blanket
    I know God is answering my prayer.

  25. “This might be the best news to come out of the long year since Michael Jackson died.”

    Yeah, in theory, except for the fact that Debbie Rowe sold her kids away and refused to be a mother to them. Don’t see why she should start being a mother to them now.

    I think the best news of this year *would* have been the media keeping its mouth closed on Michael, his family, his children, you know the usual. The media’s reluctance to speak on AEG, the *real* progress made in the *investigation*, you know the stuff that really matters.

  26. That’s great. Got to see Diana in concert with a special dedication to dad in the show and now with their mom. She never seemed like a bad person to begin. She and MJ had an agreement. MJ raised those children well, and if these folks are positive and honest, it’s a wonderful thing for the kids. Peace folks.

  27. “From June 2005 until last June–four years–the children were dragged by Jackson from one locale to another–Bahrain, Ireland, Japan, France, Las Vegas, northern Virginia, suburban New Jersey, and then finally a rented house in Beverly Hills.”

    TYPICAL Roger. Would you have preferred Michael to keep HIS children in the United States of America. A country with a justice system, celebrity community, and media that terrorized him & crucified him left, right, and center. Give me a break. That’s why Michael refused to perform in America even if the demand was high. Moving those kids around was the best thing Michael could have done. It kept the press of their tails and allowed them to see the world, much like their father did.

  28. This is really good news and I’m glad to hear that these meetings actually take place. Since there were not even rumors about Debbie meeting the kids I was worried that someone found a way to delay them again and again. Once they go to school the kids might have a chance now to start at least a partly “normal” life.

  29. Roger I guess you want us to forget that she gave up her rights not long after divorcing Michael and only got them back because of an error a judge made. I guess you also want us to forget that you said that Mrs Jackson was not allowing her to see the kids and that she Debbie was going to go to court because of it. I guess you also want us to forget that her buddy and yours too Marc S told people magazine that Mrs Jackson was not allowing her to see the kids and that she could not even call the house something her lawyer denied. And I guess you want us to forget that when there father you know the one that had been there for them when Debbie went off to raise horses “dragged” them over to Bahrain she accused him of kidnapping them. So doesn’t this story sort of contradict your other stories. But then again doesn’t that happen to you all of the time? If she is seeing her kids good for her about time

  30. “From June 2005 until last June–four years–the children were dragged by Jackson from one locale to another–Bahrain, Ireland, Japan, France, Las Vegas, northern Virginia, suburban New Jersey, and then finally a rented house in Beverly Hills.”

    Funny thing, we don’t hear people say Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s brood are dragged from one location to the next while their famous parents shoot movies from one locale to another.
