While Debbie Rowe has made no secret of the fact that she wants custody of Paris and Prince Jackson, she also has quietly gotten engaged to music producer Marc Schaffel.
What's super weird about that, though, is Schaffel used to be Michael Jackson's personal videographer at his Neverland Ranch, and the two were super close!
But when Schaffel's background came to light, and people realized that MJ's BFF was a former adult movie director and was also in possession of an adult movie of him with two wickedly young looking men, MJ and his lawyers cut their relationship down! At the time they said:
“[Schaffel] has had no relationship with Michael Jackson. The minute Michael and his advisers found out about Schaffel’s background, they cut the cord immediately. This was months ago. [Schaffel] has nothing to do with Michael Jackson … and has been told this repeatedly by Michael’s attorneys.”
Two years later in 2004, when MJ was indicted with charges of child abuse, false imprisonment and felony extortion, Schaffel was charged as a co-conspirator who “did conspire with [Jackson] … To commit the crimes.”
Schaffel was able to get his name redacted as a co-conspirator, but later on sued Michael Jackson for $4 million dollars for unpaid loans he claimed was still owed to him! And he wasn't just blowing smoke up everyone's butt because he WAS awarded $900,000, but then MJ also received $200,000 in a cross complaint.
Debbie Rowe says she met Schaffel while he was working for MJ, so we're sure she knows everything that the rest of the world does.
But then why is she convinced that MJ would've given them his blessing for their future marriage, and therefore also think Schaffel might be a good potential step-dad for MJ's kids?!
Seems kind of backwards thinking to us!
