Debbie could be the legal guardian of Paris if the teenager wants it, but Debbie is reportedly not going to fight Katherine Jackson over Paris' custody.
Debbie Rowe is likely to become Paris Jackson's guardian if the court decides to make changes in regards to the 15-year-old teenager's custody. According to a source, Debbie "would be delighted to have Paris living on her ranch" with her. However, the mother reportedly will let Paris' grandmother, Katherine Jackson, to be the legal guardian.
Another source told New York Daily News, "It would take Katherine dying or becoming very ill for Debbie to seek legal guardianship in court." The source added that both Debbie and Katherine wanted to respect Michael Jackson's will, in which he named Katherine a guardian of his children.
"Katherine said she isn't going to give up the role because she feels that would be letting Michael down, and Debbie has too much respect for Katherine and Michael's wishes to fight her in court," the source said on Monday, June 10. The source also said that Paris could stay with Debbie during summer, but "it still wouldn't change the guardianship."
Paris has been moved to UCLA Medical Center from a hospital near Calabasas home after she allegedly tried to commit suicide. According to E! News, the King of Pop's daughter "is doing much better." A source of the site added, "She knows she has some big decisions to make. And she knows she needs to get better and start thinking straight." Paris has been receiving support from "a lot of people around her who love her and want her to get better."
Paris' godmother Diana Ross reportedly "is extremely concerned about Paris." According to Radar Online, the singer "has vowed to make sure she gets the help she needs." She is said planning to visit Paris when she is discharged from hospital. Marie Osmond, who lost her son because of suicide, is also concerned about the girl's condition. "This little girl's in a really hard place. Who knows what the answers are, but I'd seriously look. My heart breaks for her," she said during an appearance on CBS' "The Talk".
