DEBBIE ROWE is going to court to seek guardianship of the two kids she had with MICHAEL JACKSON and says she'd gladly take all three of Michael's children.

Debbie says Prince has developed a filthy mouth and is rebellious and Paris hasn't made the kind of improvement necessary after her suicide attempt. She also feels that Blanket, who's not her kid, is the most vulnerable and in the most danger. Of course, the Jackson family will fight Debbie's efforts and the brothers say she accepted a payoff from Michael to abandon her kids. However, she says she's not in it for money and that Michael consulted her regularly about raising the kids. Debbie added that Michael often told her the only sibling with any talent was Janet, and the others turned sponging off him into an art form.

Even then they say it might not be enough.
