Does this mean Diana Ross will not be the future mother of Michael Jackson’s children? In an interview with NBC Los Angeles, Debbie Rowe said “I want my children” and that she would submit to any testing to prove she’s the true mother of the two children she birthed to Michael Jackson. One sign that she’s fit for mothering: She said she’d seek a restraining order to keep Jackson’s father, Joe, away from the children. Rowe surrendered her parental rights when she divorced Jackson in 1999. Ross, meanwhile, was named the backup guardian to Jackson’s mother in his will.
