News of The World scored an exclusive interview with Debbie Rowe, Michael Jackson’s
first second wife and the biological mother of his two oldest children. Despite still having legal rights to her two children, Michael Joseph Jackson Jr., 11, and Paris Michael Katherine Jackson, 10, Rowe told NOTW that she doesn’t want custody. She tried to give up all rights to the children in 2005, but due to a technicality they’re still legally hers and she could claim custody along with the huge child support that is likely to come out of the Jackson estate. That’s not Rowe’s intention, though, and she said that she is content to care for the animals on her farm, calling them her “children.” She was just platonic friends with Jackson, and said they never had sex or lived together. Many have speculated that Jackson’s children are too light-skinned to be biologically his, and Rowe confirms that they’re not his and that she was inseminated with an anonymous donor’s sperm:
Speaking exclusively at her home Debbie said: “Michael was divorced, lonely and wanted children. I was the one who said to him, ‘I will have your babies’.
“I offered him my womb – it was a gift. It was something I did to keep him happy.”
After second birth he wanted no more to do with me
Debbie said she was “impregnated” like one of the thoroughbred mares she now keeps on her property, adding: “I was just the vessel. It wasn’t Michael’s sperm.
“I got paid for it, and I’ve moved on. I know I will never see my children again.”
Blonde Debbie, now 50, spoke out at the ranch in California where she lives as a virtual recluse surrounded by dozens of animals.
And she revealed the strange true story behind her relationship with the Thriller icon, who she married in 1996 and divorced three years later. It included details of how:
JACKSON never had sex with her throughout their marriage and parenthood; SHE offered to have babies for him after he told her that his first wife Lisa Marie Presley had refused to bear him any; THE star arranged for a sham marriage to make them appear like a family; HE cruelly ditched her when the painful second birth left her “all torn up inside” and unable to give him any more kids.
“I was never a good mother, I never felt any attachment to them. It was a better feeling giving them to him than it was keeping them as my own.
“I know I will never see them again. I was never cut out to be a mother – I was no good. I don’t want these children in my life. My children are my animals now.”

The mother of Jackson’s youngest child, Prince Michael Jackson II, 6, is an anonymous surrogate from Europe and his parentage remains unknown. Michael Jackson’s children are with their grandmother, Katherine, and are likely to stay with her. Grandfather Joe Jackson was asked by BBC News at the BET Awards last night about the children, and he answered simply “they are with us.”
Update: According to Debbie Rowe’s lawyer, this interview was completely fabricated.
