Jackson Family Drama: Debbie Rowe Supports Joint Custody; Diana Ross Threatens to Intervene
In the documents, obtained by TMZ, Rowe — who is the mother of Prince Michael, 15, and Paris, 14 — said she will continue to support the court’s ruling, provided that the best interests of her children are kept.
“Should the arrangement sought by TJ Jackson and Katherine Jackson become untenable, unstable, unsafe, or in any way contrary to the best interests of the children, Ms. Rowe will seek court intervention,” the documents read.
Rowe was married to Jackson for three years in the mid-’90s. According to TMZ, she had to be notified when TJ first petitioned for guardianship.
Meanwhile, Diana Ross has threatened similar action, claiming she will step in and take care of Michael’s three children if the Jackson family drama gets any worse.
According to family friend Stacy Brown (via The Mirror), the Motown legend recently met with Katherine, Prince Michael, Paris and Blanket, 10, during which she gave Katherine a stern warning.
“When she left, she let it be known that if this thing blows up publicly again, she’ll be back,” Brown said.
“Diana gave Paris her phone number and said ‘Use it, no matter what. Use it.'”
Ross, 68, was named the back-up guardian of Michael’s children in Michael’s will.
In July, TJ filed for temporary custody of Michael’s children after Katherine went missing for about 10 days. Katherine’s guardianship was subsequently revoked, before a court decided to allow her to have joint custody a few days later.
