A woman who described herself as a “close friend” of Debbie Rowe’s is being sued by Michael Jackson‘s ex for telling a TV reporter that Rowe was only interested in getting money from the late singer’s estate and not in gaining custody of her two biological kids, Prince Michael and Paris Jackson.
In a lawsuit filed last week, Rowe claims she should be awarded $490,000 in general and punitive damages after Rebecca White, who Rowe’s attorneys claimed is not a friend of their client, made the defaming statements to Extra TV in the weeks following Michael Jackson’s death.
A hearing on Rowe’s petition against White has been scheduled for November. (AP)
