A new pony for Paris?

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.
