Debbie Rowe Has Now Made $20M Selling Her Kids


Yesterday I said that I didn't really care how much money Debbie Rowe was going to get as long as she made the deal whereby Joe Jackson wasn't going to have any kind of contact with the children of Michael Jackson. Well, apparently that deal was completed yesterday and Debbie will be walking away with $4M in cash. Now, you may be asking yourself, the headline says $20M. Where did that number come from. Let me break it down for you.

When Prince and Paris were born she sold them, I mean allowed Michael to raise them in return for a lump sum of $8M plus annual payments of $900K for 5 years. So, that would be $12.5M total.

Later, when Michael was going through his child molestation trial, she said uh oh and fought to regain the custody of the children. At that point she was bought off again. This time it cost Michael $4M and a 900K house. That would bring the total to $17.4M.

Then, yesterday she sold the kids again. This time she sold them for the previously mentioned $4M for a grand total of $21.4M.

That is a lot of money. According to the NY Post, the Jackson family says that in this latest agreement that Debbie can no longer come back and do this again and that this will be the final payment ever for Debbie or at least until she can figure out a way to sell them again. Just think how much she would have made if all three kids were hers.

I hope she goes away now. Those kids don't need her in their already painful lives.

Why didn't they add the "no come back" clause the first time around?

I still say in California, you can sue for any damn reason and Debbie being the biological mom (supposedly) will always give her some leeway.

I think that everytime Deb threatens to reveal that Michael ain't the babydaddy, somebody is going to pay her or buy her a pony.

jax said...

Madonna would have paid more Debbie!

can i say how hilarious i think it is that the The Insider almost quoted Michael K word for word about Joe pimpin them out as the Jackson 3? Apparently Katherine got wind of it and freaked out, prompting the hearing. lol, dlisted drove the jackson's to court!

WHY IS THIS OUT THERE FOR THESE KIDS TO KNOW....HOW VERY SAD.

Quintessential Southerner said...

i don't know whether or not i believe that mj is NOT the father to any of his kids. i will say that one can be of black and white parentage and LOOK more like one ethnic group than the other. some bi-ethnic people, i don't believe in the term 'race', have passed for white in yesteryears and today. **shrugs**

angelina said...

What is she going to do when these kids seek her out to answer their questions? She's disgusting (if this is true)

chris said...

Why isn't anyone commenting on the fact that Michael & Family BOUGHT the kids for 20 million?

Who, on god's green earth goes to this much trouble, monetarily, to OWN children?

The entire Family is sick, including anyone who benefits in any way becasue of their involvement.

Michael Jackson bought her uterus- I say get as much as you can- he only would have spent it on his face or his skin anyways.

mygeorgie said...

Selling kids MULTIPLE times? Money grubbing whore. These poor kids are going to feel stretched in a few years, if they don't already. I don't beleive there is one person really looking out for them. Very sad.

Rolf said...

only one word comes to mind: DISGUSTING!

Mina said...

@chris:

Would you also say that about Sarah Jessica Parker?
Debbie Rowe was a surrogate mother. Nothing more, nothing less. I guess Michael's big mistake was to fake a relationship with her and to marry her most likely to avoid inconvenient questions from the media as to where those kids suddenly came from if she had been a surrogate he had hidden somewhere until she had given birth to his babies.
Those two marriages were an attempt to make him look normal, heterosexual and capable of having relationships.

canadachick said...

hmm thought child trafficking was illegial..guess not when you're paying Millions. Hey she didnt' want kids, she had them for him, he bought them. The end. both are guilty IMO

ardleigh said...

I feel horrible for those poor kids.Glad to hear someone cut Joe off at the knees for the whole "Growing up Jackson" crap. I hope some decent soul with good intent steps up for them. If they can find 1 in that 3 ring circus of a family.

Mina, I agree with you that I really think Debbie Rowe was nothing but a surrogate mother, not the bio-mom of those kids. The kids might very well know this to be the case. In that case, it would be pretty easy to give them up. A surrogate has the mind-set all along that these are not her kids in any way. So do we fault other surrogate mothers? No, nor should we.

Now, as far as her milking MJ and now his estate for money, can we all honestly say we wouldn't do the same? I can't. If I knew the kids were getting the real truth and would therefore not feel rejected, why then yes, I do believe I'd try to get $20 million out of MJ too. Just being honest.

jax said...

i don't understand why all the jackson's are being targeted becasue THIER DAD was a dick? people who are abused can get over it and raise perectly fine children you know. jermaine aside, the rest seem to be pretty fucking fine to me and totally capable of giving these kids a loving home.

Lisa (original) said...

Jax, even LaToya?. LOL, I agree your basic point though :-)

Mina said...

I think that Michael could be the father of Paris and Prince Michael I.
Have you seen Boris Becker's daughter? His youngest son could also pass for a white person.
Prince Michael II. totally looks like Michael, IMO.

Caroline said...

Janet should be the one raising those babies.

vitazza said...

Good God I wish she would just stay away!! I really don't think Joe will be as big a problem as he was in the past because he IS elderly NOW and I do believe his GROWN adult Children and Wife would serve as a buffer between him and the children IMO
His interaction with the children would be limited also because he lives in Vegas not California like the rest of the Family

Mina said...

What I don't understand is where did they get the money from to pay her off for the third time? Wasn't that journalist Ian Haberlin(?) claiming that Michael was so broke that he even struggled to bring food on the table for his kids and therefore also had to meet his alleged gay lovers in seedy motels?
I know that the brand Michael Jackson is making a lot of money due to his passing but if he was that much in debt as many people claim wouldn't they have to pay his debtors first?

Kris said...

If MJ was broke, how was he renting that amazing house up until his death? I don't trust Halperin - I read his Cobain books and he relentlessly cites unnamed sources.

Rolf said...

Just saw a new article on people online claiming, the lawyer og Debbie Rowe has stated his client didn't accept any 4mio$ (yet). The negotiations are still underways...

Ayesha said...

That's the thing with blackmailers. They always come back.

But seriously, I have no problem with Debbie Rowe going after the Jacksons because it throws light on their disgusting act. All she has to do is allege that the children are being exploited and she is the mother of the children - biologically and they are the product of her marriage to MJ whether or not they are 'his'.

She has some standing, like it or not.

The charges have to be investigated. I kinda like that.

whole_lotto _luv said...

I believe Rowe is the biological mother of the 2 oldest and not just a gestational carrier. Paris bears a bit of a resemblance to her.

I also think Rowe is the highest paid surrogate mother in history. From what I've read, most surrogate mothers receive about $15-20k over medical and other expenses. I think she and MJ got married because a)his name on the birth certificates as father was automatic, and b)she could accept the $$ and call it a divorce settlement, instead of what it really was.

bionic bunny! said...

if joe jackson has nothing to do with the kids, then i'm okay with it.
if all three kids stay together, i'm okay with it.

what i fail to understand, is, if she had all this payola, why, why, WHY was she living in palmdale when michael died? not even lancaster or quartz hill, which are only slightly pricier areas of the antelope valley, but PALMDALE?

according to the news, she lives only a couple of miles from me. even if she's living in on of the bigger homes built on old farm/ranch land, that kind of dough would have gotten her out of this area several times over.
my thought is she's got to be really bad with money, so i imagine we haven't heard the last of her yet.

nancer said...

diane dimond has written about MJ for 20 years and she says they are NOT his and the sperm donor is known to a lot of people.
why do believe not believe her? why think they're MJ's? he married her to make us think they were his and that way he didn't have to adopt them, proving they weren't.
MJ wasn't light---not one of those kids looks like any person in his family, including him.

jax said...

i still think Blanket is Mj's. he looks like him and seems very shy.
who knows...

shakey said...

We can only base assumptions on what we read. We won't know the truth.

As a surrogate mother, perhaps she feels she needs to step in to make sure they will be ok. Maybe that $4mil is a final payout.

I found out Ian Halperin is from Montreal. He was on tv saying how he predicted on Dec 24th MJ had 6 months left to live. Sorry, I can't take someone's word when they're talking while wearing white sunglasses with red lenses. Plus the publisher said Halperin spent all of 2 hours with MJ personally, pretending to be a hair stylist - this is 2 hours out of 5 years of befriending MJ's entourage.

mygeorgie said...

Jax, I agree about blanket. He looks like him & shyness is a gene.

My bet is the KIDS will be the ones to later on publicly announce their dna.

Judi said...

Yeah, the update is that there is no agreement in place yet. So the $4M story is bogus - and I'm not sure I believe the earlier stories.
MJ was able to get loans by borrowing against his assets which were considerable.
To me, Blanket looks a lot like Miko Brando.

Jasmine said...

So sad this kids have to deal with this.
I hope they have NO idea what is going on, but how can they not?
On a positive side, i havent seen any masks or weird shit ala during MJ's parenting days so maybe the kids are in okay hands with grandma?
That Debbie woman is a peice of work and all this money proves that she could give a shit about those kids so none of us should be glad she came outt the woodwork- she is a horrible person.
