Debbie Rowe: Michael Jackson Feared Pain and Trusted Doctors

Originally posted 08/14/2013 05:15PM

The mother of Michael Jackson's two eldest children reluctantly testified for the defense Wednesday that Jackson inappropriately used Propofol at least 12 years before his death – and was warned that he was playing with fire.

Debbie Rowe, called to the stand for lawyers defending concert promoter AEG against the Jackson family's wrongful death case, said Jackson used the potentially fatal anesthetic to help catch up on sleep in between show days when he brought his 1997 HIStory tour to Germany.

The two were married from 1996 to 1999.

For years, Debbie Rowe, Michael Jackson's ex-wife and the mother of two of his children, was out of the picture.

As followers of the frequently bizarre Jackson family saga know, the former dermatology nurse – who was married to Jackson from 1996 to 1999 – gave her pop star husband sole custody of Michael Joseph "Prince" Jackson Jr., 16, and Paris-Michael Katherine Jackson, 15, in the divorce.

Rowe, 54, was awarded $8 million in the settlement and, except for occasional visits with her children, steered clear of the family. She settled in Palmdale, Calif., about an hour outside Los Angeles, breeding horses and zealously guarding her privacy.

Lawyer: Debbie Rowe Won't Give Up Parental Rights

Originally posted 07/14/2009 01:45PM

Debbie Rowe, the mother of Michael Jackson's two oldest children, is keeping her parental rights, says her attorney in denying a report that Rowe reached a $4 million custody deal with the entertainer's family.

"There has been no agreement reached between Ms. Rowe and the Jacksons," lawyer Eric George says in an open letter to the New York Post. "Ms. Rowe has not and will not give up her parental rights. No determination has been reached concerning custody or visitation. And Ms. Rowe has not accepted and will not accept any additional financial consideration beyond the spousal support she and Michael personally agreed to several years ago."

George demanded an "immediate retraction" to the Post's anonymously sourced story Tuesday that said Jackson's "baby mama" had "sold her kids again" by "squeezing about $4 million from her former mother-in-law" in exchange for relinquishing her parental rights.
