Debbie Rowe

Debbie Rowe and daughter Paris Jackson – December 2013

*Michael Jackson’s ex-wife Debbie Rowe is undergoing tests to determine if she has cancer, reports TMZ.

Rowe – who was married to the late singer for just under three years until October 1999, and had children Prince, 17, and Paris, 15, with him – will undergo a biopsy today after medical examinations over the last few months have shown ”irregularities” with her lymph nodes.

Although her doctors are investigating the possibility that she may have lymphoma, the 55-year-old nurse is confident she will be given the all-clear, telling TMZ: ”I’m too healthy to have cancer.”

Michael died of acute Propofol intoxication in June 2009 and though Debbie is comfortable with undergoing a biopsy, she is reportedly “scared to death” of going under an anesthetic. She is said to have told doctors: “Propofol is out of the question.”

Debbie originally lost contact with her children after divorcing Michael in 1999, but has been getting closer to them over the last year, with the blessing of the Jackson family.
