Debbie Rowe Won't Attend Memorial

Despite earlier reports, Michael Jackson's ex-wife Debbie Rowe will not be attending his memorial on Tuesday. In a statement, Rowe's attorney said: "Although Debbie had originally planned to attend tomorrow's Staples Center memorial service, we have concluded with Debbie that she will not be attending. The onslaught of media attention has made it clear her attendance would be an unnecessary distraction to an event that should focus exclusively on Michael's legacy. Debbie will continue to celebrate Michael's memory privately." The massive event, which will be broadcast on some of the broadcast networks, will include a performance by Mariah Carey.
