Michael Jackson‘s ex-wife Debbie Rowe was in a feisty mood on Sunday. While leaving a restaurant in Lancaster, Calif., Rowe snapped back at a photographer who was peppering her with questions about the custody of her kids with the late pop star.
“Are you ready to fight for your children?” one reporter asked repeatedly. After he got a little close, Rowe lashed out: “Are you ready to get your butt kicked? Don’t f—-in’ touch me!”
Rowe, the biological mother of two of the children, told a NBCLA reporter last week that she’ll fight for custody. She’s planning on seeking a restraining order against Michael Jackson’s father, Joe Jackson. “I am stepping up. I have to,” Rowe said.
She’s fighting to get custody of the three children left behind by Jackson: Michael Joseph Jr. (12), Paris Michael Katherine (11) and Prince Michael II (7). Prince Michael II was born to an unidentified surrogate mother. Rowe said during the interview that she doesn’t want to split the children up, and though she doesn’t expect to gain custody of Prince Michael II since he’s not her biological child, she’d be willing to accept custody of him.
Rowe, now 50, surrendered her parental rights during her divorce from Jackson in 1999.
In Jackson’s 2002 will, he requested that his mother be named guardian of the children, and also specifically states that Rowe should not get any inheritance. “I have intentionally omitted to provide for my former wife, Deborah Jean Rowe Jackson,” Jackson’s will states.
There will be a custody hearing on July 13 to determine whether Jackson’s mother will remain guardian to the children.
An attorney for Rowe said on Monday that she is backing out of plans to attend the pop star’s memorial service on Tuesday. Marta Almli said her attendance would be “an unnecessary distraction” and that Rowe will “celebrate Michael’s memory privately.”
