Michael Jackson's ex-wife Debbie Rowe has decided to marry the late King of Pop's pal, gay porn producer Marc Schaffel, after previously insisting they were not engaged.

Reports surfaced last month (Mar14) suggesting Rowe was set to tie the knot with Schaffel, after she was photographed wearing what appeared to be an engagement ring.

Rowe denied the claims, but she has since come clean about the relationship, revealing she initially turned down the proposal because she feared she had terminal cancer, after doctors found irregularities with her lymph nodes.

However, test results have shown that the former nurse, who is mother to Jackson's two eldest children Prince Michael and Paris, is actually suffering from autoimmune disease sarcoidosis, which is not life-threatening, and now she has decided to marry Schaffel.

She tells Tmz.com, "He loves me, knows my kids, loves my kids and we'll see where this goes."

The couple has yet to set a wedding date.
