Arena has rushed a documentary The Debbie Rowe Interview: The Missing Tapes to air this Monday, July 20 at 7.30pm.
The one-hour special, produced by a former associate of the Jackson family, Marc Shaffel, features a candid Rowe speaking at length about Jackson, including their first meeting and subsequent marriage, children and divorce.
Compiled from hours of unedited interview footage filmed in one evening, Foxtel has acquired the footage directly from Shaffel.
Rowe frankly addresses some of the most intriguing rumours that have spread throughout the king of pop’s career, including child abuse claims, the real story behind how she and Jackson came to be parents, and why she married Jackson in a private ceremony in Australia in 1996:
“To prevent some of the taboo of a child out of wedlock. The kids were going to have it hard enough as it was…”
The special will also feature interview footage that has never before been seen.
