Debbie Rowe may have given birth to Michael Jackson‘s children, but she’s never been a parent to them, so there’s no reason for her to start now, right? Well, except that she claims their home is too chaotic for them and wants to put a custody petition forward for Paris, Prince and Blanket – something Prince is not very happy about.
“Prince is absolutely disgusted by Debbie’s plans to go to court to try and gain custody of himself, Paris and Blanket,” a Jackson family source told Radar.
“First, Debbie wasn’t around for years, and Prince doesn’t consider her his mother. As far as Prince in concerned, Debbie was basically a surrogate mother. Second, Debbie wants the kids to come live with her in Palmdale. Prince is a junior in high school in Southern California, and will be turning eighteen next February. Uprooting his entire life and moving to Palmdale would jeopardize all of the hard work and progress he has made in school. Debbie thinks Prince doesn’t have enough supervision, and is out of control….yet, Prince has a 4.2 GPA and is on track to graduate with honors.
The source told Radar that Prince will have the law on his side in this situation.
“Thankfully, in California, there is tremendous consideration given to teenagers in custody cases, and they can usually determine which parent or guardian they would like to live with,” the source told Radar.
“The Jackson children have a court appointed attorney, a guardian ad litem, Margaret Lodise. Prince will be speaking with her and telling her in no uncertain terms would he want to move in with Debbie. This is all very disruptive to his life, and is truly the last thing he needs.”
I think that sounds pretty fair. After all, the kids have zero relationship with Debbie, so why on earth would they want to be uprooted from everything they know (even moreso than losing their father did to them) to go live with her? Sure, the Jackson family has had its share of drama, but EVERY family does, and unless they feel their lives are in danger or they can’t cope, I think the court should listen to them.
