Debbie Rowe is due to testify in the Michael Jackson civil case of the Jackson family against AEG Live Concert Promoters.  Debbie Rowe will testify about Michael Jackson's drug abuse.

Central to the Michael Jackson civil case is whether AEG knew of the extent of Michael Jackson's drug abuse.  The Jackson family are suing for wrongful death, alleging that promoters knew of Michael Jackson's drug addiction and pressured him to prepare for comeback performances.  Debbie Rowe is being called by AEG, and will presumably be helpful to their side of the case.

Michael Jackson died after an overdose of anesthetic propofol.  Michael Jackson's doctor Conrad Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter and is serving four years in prison.

Debbie Rowe met Michael Jackson at Dr. Arnold Klein's office, where she was a nurse.  Michael Jackson was being treated for vitiglio. 

Debbie Rowe offered to have his children as Jackson was upset after his divorce from Lisa Marie Presley that he might never have any.  She became the mother to two of his children, Prince and Paris Jackson.  Rowe gave up parental rights to Prince and Paris Jackson initially, but has recently become more a part of Paris's life as she deals with fallout from a suicide attempt.

According to the Sun, Debbie Rowe called Arnold Klein after Michael Jackson's death, alleging that "He's dead and it's your fault".  Debbie had seen a photograph of Michael emerging from Klein's office and thought Klein might have given Jackson something.   Rowe will supposedly be claiming that Klein injected Jackson with Demerol and Vistaril when he went to his office.  Demerol is a powerful opiate painkiller and vistaril is a sedative.

However, Debbie Rowe says she did not know the extent of Michael Jackson's drug abuse as he hid it.
