Jackson also knew that Presley would never make him a father, which he longed to be. According to Presley, the last "coherently good conversation" she had with Jackson was in Rowe treated Jackson's vitiligowhich he had been diagnosed with in and which would affect his physical appearance for the remainder of his life.
The pair became good friends; the pop star frequently sent autographed merchandise to the woman, who hung it on the walls of her office. According to her friend Tanya Boyd, Rowe would obsess over Jackson. She would say to her friend, "If people knew him like I knew him, they would not think he was strange. He's unique, kinky, actually. Rowe and Jackson would both talk to each other about their unhappy marriages; his with Presley and hers with Edelman, a teacher at Hollywood High School.
Like Jackson's first wife, Rowe supported the entertainer when he was accused of child sexual abuse. Jackson kept his friendship with Rowe a secret from his wife, who eventually found out but thought nothing of it; she felt Rowe was not her husband's type because she was not glamorous enough. Shortly after Presley and Jackson's separation, Rowe became pregnant but suffered a miscarriage in March The event devastated Rowe, who feared she would never be able to have a baby.
Jackson comforted and consoled Rowe throughout the ordeal, which remained hidden from the media and public.
One month into the tour and several months after his divorce from Presley, Jackson's personal life made headlines as it was revealed that Debbie Rowe was pregnant with his child. Rowe reacted furiously to the publication, labeling the editorial staff "bastards" and complaining that they reported the story as if she and Jackson were freaks.
Randy Taraborrelli later noted that the article, which had been put together from a secret tape recording between Rowe and a friend, had been fairly accurate. It detailed that Jackson was the father of the baby and that he would be raising the child alone.
It also stated that Jackson impregnated Rowe artificially with his own sperm cellsa "foolproof" method of insemination. Further reports alleged that the relationship was an "economic" one; she was in it for the money and he sought a baby.
Despite the denials, it was noted that Rowe had received millions of dollars from Jackson as "gifts" over the years. Katherine did not want her son to be like his father, who had produced an illegitimate child with a woman while married to Michael's mother.

She later spoke to Jackson, telling him to marry "that nice girl, Debbie" and "give your child a name, not like your poor, half-sister, Joh'Vonnie".
The words resonated with the musician, who did not want to repeat his father's sins. Jackson intended to issue a statement following the birth that the identity of the mother was a secret, in the same way that the identities of many surrogates are protected. Katherine's involvement, however, influenced Jackson to call Rowe and ask her to meet him in Australia, where he was staying, as soon as she could.
There, the entertainer announced his plans for them to wed the next day. The night before the wedding, Jackson had called Presley, who gave him and Rowe her blessing. In front of 15 friends, the pair exchanged vows at the hotel. An 8-year-old boy named Anthony, who was Jackson's nephew, served as the best man during the ceremony.
Once they were married, it was obvious to me that Michael really loved her and things seemed to be great between them for a few short months.
When things started to fall apart though She caused him a lot of stress and heartache. The interviews that she gave after they divorced were scathing of Michael; when he, on the other hand, never said one single bad word about her.
She never spoke out properly in his defence, over the child abuse allegations - rather, she spoke in riddles, saying things like: I never saw anything.
She was in a perfect position as his wife, or former wife, to unequivocally state that he was not capable of the things of which he was accused. I think her backing would have held a lot of sway, with the general public Inwhen he was at the lowest point in his life, he called her and asked her if she still loved him, or if she still cared at all and she told him that she was numb and felt nothing.
That made him cry. Then, after he passed away, she did an interview with Oprah Winfrey, making out as though she'd only just realised that she still loved him and had loved him all along and that he was the great love of her life, or something.
So he had to die for her to realise that??? I'm not buying that, at all.
