Joe Jackson Dismisses Ongoing Rowe Feud

MICHAEL JACKSON's father has dismissed reports the Jackson family has been preventing the singer's ex-wife DEBBIE ROWE from visiting her children, insisting they have a good relationship with her.
Rowe, who is the biological mother of Jackson's eldest kids Prince Michael, 12, and Paris, 11, visited the Jackson family home to spend some time with her children earlier this year (10), and now patriarch Joe Jackson has fired back at critics, who have suggested Rowe has been kept away from the pre-teens.
He tells Britain's News of the World, "Debbie came over with some presents and talked with the kids. They knew that she was their mother, but didn't make a big fuss. It was all done in about 10 minutes, but it was a good meeting.
"Whatever has been said, nobody has stopped Debbie from seeing the children. Katherine and she have a good relationship."
And the Jackson patriarch insists the children, as well as younger brother Prince Michael II, seven, are coping well almost a year on from their dad's death.
He adds, "They adored their daddy, but they have recovered well. The first few months were hard, but now they are enjoying their life in Encino."
And Jackson is proud of his late son's efforts as a dad - because the two Prince Michaels and Paris are super smart: "Michael made sure they had a strict upbringing, and made sure they studied hard and were only allowed to watch TV at weekends.
"He was a great, but strict father. Now those kids are the smartest and Michael's trained them to be aware of the world and its perils."

I am glad to here that Katherine has a friendship with Debbie. It is good to know the kids are doing well after there dads death. They know their daddy is in heaven and they will be reunited someday.GOD BLESS THE CHILDREN!

I grew up with the Jackson 5 as a teenager and very proud of Micheal going solo. Everyone knew how talented he was in his singing.If I were part of that family, I would fight Debbie Rowe tooth and nail from seeing Micheal's children. Because ALL SHE WAS A BABY MACHINE to gain MONEY from Micheal Jackson. When Micheal was alive she was NOT interested in particpating in two of the oldest children she gained MONEY for. Than after Micheal's death to find out she wasn't EVEN in Micheals will got her lawyer to say she wanted her two oldest plus the youngest that she didn't even birth for Money!Now, all the sudden she wants to have a "Relationship" for 10 minutes!??? Micheal was smart to have his will a "NO CONTEST". Meaning if Debbie Rowe wanted her two oldest children legally, she could have them and raise them both with the money she has with only the agreement between Micheal and her.During her 10 minutes of presence all she can give is "presents". Micheal's children has everything they need plus more in materialistic items for the rest of their lives. Debbie Rowe should be trying to do more physical with her two children other than giving them presents. I can see why Micheals children wouldn't make a big fuss in a woman they hardly know.

For those of you who don't know, Debbie's parents were well off, she however was not. I don't think that she wanted or would have ever had children. She had the kids for Michael; to make him happy because LMP promised him kids while they were married then reneged. I don't know the whole story, but from listening to Michael's Martin Bashir interview & reading between the lines, it's my opinion that Debbie may have some issues that they both were aware of that would make her unfit to raise children. Michael is gone now & it's hard enough to loose your father. I think that it's great that she has made attempts to visit. The more people that these kids have in their lives that truly love them the better it is for them.
