Michael Jackson’s first wife was Lisa Marie Presley, the daughter of Elvis. After they split, he married dermatology nurse Debbie Rowe, with whom he had two children. She has led a pretty quiet life since divorcing from Michael in 1999, but what is she doing now?
Michael Jackson married Debbie Rowe, a dermatology nurse, while he was on tour in Sydney, Australia on November 13, 1996.
