What is Debbie Rowe's net worth? Paris Jackson shares Mother's Day tribute with decades-old snap of mom
American model, actress, singer, and musician Paris Jackson, the second child and only daughter of Michael Jackson, paid a sweet Mother's Day tribute to her mother on Sunday, May 9. On her Instagram Story, Jackson shared an adorable selfie with her mom, Debbie Rowe. She also shared a vintage photo of Rowe from years earlier. Jackson has more than 3.7 million followers on the platform.
Rowe was married to Michael Jackson from 1996 until finalizing their divorce in 1999. Michael Jackson's marriage to Lisa Marie Presley ended in 1996. Rowe, a dermatology assistant, became involved with Jackson while she worked at a dermatology clinic run by the renowned skin specialist Dr Arnold Klein. Three months after divorcing Presley, the two got married in Sydney, Australia.
Rowe said in an interview later, “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."
Rowe gave birth to a son, Michael Joseph Jackson Jr. -- also known as Prince -- on February 13, 1997, at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. The next year, she gave birth to Paris on April 3, 1998, at Spaulding Pain Medical Clinic in Beverly Hills in Los Angeles.
Her pregnancy with Paris had complications, and it reportedly left Rowe unable to have any more children. At the same time, there was a controversy of a different kind there. Jackson was reportedly so desperate to take his daughter home that he admitted carrying her out while she was still covered in blood. "I snatched her and just went home with all the placenta and everything all over her," he said in an interview. "I’m not kidding. Got her in a towel and ran. They said it was fine... And I got her home and washed it all off.”
Rowe reportedly terminated her parental rights in 2001. She, however, later fought to regain supervised visits with her children after Jackson was charged with multiple counts of child abuse in 2004.
In the interview after his death, Rowe claimed that she never had sex with Jackson and that the children were the result of artificial insemination by an anonymous sperm donor. "I went to the 'office', which is what we called the medical clinic," she said. “They impregnated me. It's just like I impregnate my mares for breeding. It was very technical. Just like I stick the sperm up my horse, this is what they did to me. I was his thoroughbred."
