Debbie Rowe has made headlines again with her shocking admission that she is ‘partly to blame for the death of the pop singer. Debbie and the pop star were married for three years (from 1996 to 1999). The 63-year-old woman recently cried as she confessed her guilt over her inaction during Jackson’s struggle with opioid addiction.
What I think you ought to know about her is as follows- Debbie was raised by her mother, paternal grandmother, and aunts after her birth on December 6, 1958, in Spokane, Washington, U.S.
Debbie had been married to Richard Edelman for three years prior to her 1996 marriage to Michael Jackson, but the couple divorced the following year in 1999.
While Debbie was working as a Dermatology assistant at the same clinic where Michael Jackson was receiving treatment for vitiligo, she happened to meet the patient, Michael Jackson. They began to grow close to one another during their time in treatment.
The couple’s first child, a son named Michael Joseph Jackson Jr. (Prince Jackson), was born on February 13, 1997, and a year later, Debbie gave birth to a daughter named Paris Jackson. On April 3, 1998, she entered the world.
Because Debbie was more comfortable living a low-key existence, she avoided the spotlight. In addition to gaining ownership of their Beverly Hills mansion, she reportedly received an $8 million settlement in their divorce. She eventually sold the home and now resides in California.
Cancer in the breast was discovered in 2016. She developed a deep bond with her daughter Paris Jackson while she was undergoing treatment.
She took a chance on love again in 2014, and the result was her engagement to Marc Schaffel, a former Jackson employee.
Relationship With Michael Jackson
Rowe first met Michael Jackson when he was an assistant in Arnold Klein’s dermatology office and the two were working together to treat Jackson’s vitiligo. She recalled that Michael Jackson was sad about the possibility of never becoming a father after his 1996 divorce from Lisa Marie Presley.
A huge Jackson fan, Rowe offered to have his kids. Lisa Marie revealed to Playboy in an interview that she and Jackson were aware of Rowe’s desire to have children with Jackson and her “crush on him” before their marriage.
Who Is Debbie Rowe And How Did She Meet Michael Jackson?
Debbie Rowe was a dermatologist in the Beverly Hills, California office where Michael Jackson was receiving treatment for his vitiligo.
In an interview with ABC News in 2003, Rowe discussed the pair’s first encounter with one another. In her words, “I go ‘Hi,'” she told the media.
And then he says, “Hi,” and I reply, “You know what? Neither you nor I am better than anyone else at our respective specialties. Have at it, and let’s see how far we get. He laughed, and from then on we got along fine. It happened instantly, right when we needed it to.
Rowe claimed that she was aware of Jackson’s desire to become a parent and that she hoped to be the one to grant that wish.
“I think there are people who should be parents, and he’s one of them,” she said to the media.
And he is such a fabulous man and such a good friend, and he has always been there for me, always, from the day I met him,” she went on.
Who Are Their Children?
To prevent Michael Jr. from being born out of wedlock, Rowe got pregnant before she and Jackson got married.
On February 13, 1997, Michael Joseph Jackson Jr., also known as Prince Michael, was born to Rowe, who had previously experienced a miscarriage and worried she would never be able to have children. Paris Jackson, the couple’s second child, was born on April 3, 1998, a full year later.
Rowe claimed that she had conceived the kids because she knew Jackson would be a wonderful father, and not because she wanted them for herself.
After settling their differences, Rowe resumed seeing her children, and after Michael Jackson’s death in 2009, Michael Jr. and Paris moved in with his mother. Rowe’s children now live with their grandmother, but she allowed to visit them every so often.
After Jackson’s Death
Rowe, through her lawyer, released statements after Jackson’s death on June 25, 2009, denying various rumors that had circulated about her, such as that she was not the children’s biological mother and that she was trying to sell her parental rights for financial gain.
She sued the source who gave the television entertainment news program Extra access to her private e-mails in July 2009 for defamation and invasion of privacy, and on March 3, 2010, she won the defamation lawsuit. She had originally asked for $500,000, but she settled for $27,000.
Rowe and the children’s guardian, Katherine Jackson, settled in August 2009, and the settlement grants Rowe the right to have supervised visits with the children.
Rowe got engaged to Marc Schaffel, a music producer, and former Neverland Ranch videographer who collaborated with Michael Jackson on his 9/11 charity single “What More Can I Give,” in April of 2014.
After Jackson’s divorce from Rowe in 1999, Schaffel the only Jackson employee who allowed to visit Rowe and help her through her health issues.
