Debbie Rowe “Getting Ready for Court” in Michael Jackson Trial


For the second time in a decade, Debbie Rowe is taking the stand for Michael Jackson. She’ll testify in the Jackson wrongful death trial, as a witness for defendant AEG Live. But as she did in 2005, Rowe will come as a hostile witness, and likely make statements that are damaging to the side that’s called her. She Tweeted yesterday:

AEG’s lawyers may ask her a wider range of questions than in 2005, however, perhaps even trying to ascertain the true biological nature of her children with Jackson. She will also be asked about Jackson’s drug abuse, especially during the time she worked for his Demerol injecting dermatologist, Arnold Klein.

The AEG lawyers may also ask about Rowe’s financial arrangements with Jackson over the years.

Stay tuned…
