Will she get the kids that she and Michael Jackson spawned? As we previously reported, Debbie Rowe wants her children back. She told this to NBC-LA in a 90-minute phone interview. She offered to undergo DNA testing to prove that she is the biological mother of Paris Michael Katherine and Prince Michael, the children she gave birth to when she was married to Michael Jackson. She's even reportedly expressed a willingness to raise Prince Michael II ("Blanket"), the child Michael Jackson had with an anonymous surrogate after they divorced. But immediately after her NBC-LA interview, Rowe's lawyer gave a press conference stating that her decision on seeking custody was not final. Divorce Laws, Demystified

After a media flurry of speculation yesterday, Debbie Rowe has decided not to attend Michael Jackson's memorial at the Staples Center in Los Angeles today. Rowe's lawyer has stated that her attendance would be an unnecessary distraction from the event and that she chooses to remember Michael "privately." It's expected that 17,500 fans will attend today's service, and a potential 2.5 billion around the world will tune in.
