I may write more about l’affaire Michael Jackson, but I want to wait to see what Debbie Rowe does before I go at it again. If she’s a decent human being, she’ll step out of the picture, even if it takes a few hefty bankers to push her out of the frame. The play-for-fame womb renter (evidence pending) doesn’t deserve our concern outside of the harm she is capable of causing. The kids, do, though.

He is the dad,” says a Jackson insider. “He and Debbie signed an agreement saying they would never reveal the truth.” Not surprisingly, Klein has refused to comment. OK, this is all tabloid hearsay, so far, but it’s gone out all over the wire. I hope it’s not true, but it wouldn’t surprise me, either. Well, some of it does.
