The death of pop icon Michael Jackson has family and friends heartbroken and sent the celebrity world in a frenzy. The mother of Jackson’s kids is said to be “inconsolable.” Celebs have also taken to Twitter to express their shock and sadness.
Debbie Rowe, who is the biological mother of two of Jackson’s kids, Paris and Michael Jr., is devastated. She, however, does not have parental rights, and therefore would not be in line for possible custody of the kids.
Fans and fellow celebrities of Michael’s have taken to their Twitter accounts to express their sadness. Here are a few:
