Debbie Rowe vs. Michael Jackson

Like many things in Jackson's life, his custody arrangement with baby mama Rowe was bizarre. When the couple divorced in 1999, Rowe reportedly gave MJ full custody of their kids in exchange for a substantial settlement. She also agreed to stay out of their lives for good. But the former nurse tried to have the decision reversed in 2004 after sex abuse allegations came out against MJ, and Rowe was awarded visitation rights after Michael's untimely death in 2009. Now, Rowe is spending more and more time with her kids — especially troubled teen Paris Jackson — though she hasn't made any moves for formal custody.
