rowesues200.jpgLOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - Debbie Rowe has filed suit against a woman who told the TV show "Extra" Rowe was willing to give up custody of her kids in exhange for a big payday.

Rowe is suing White for defamation, invasion of privacy and emotional distress.

In papers filed with the court, Rowe outlines the allegedly false statements made by White, who claimed she had received an e-mail from Debbie saying "I'm not going after custody...These kids are not mine. They never were mine. They were always Michael's."

Additionally, White said Rowe wrote her in a separate e-mail, "My lawyer is telling me I have to take some responsibility about the welfare of the children...Do I want the kids? Hell no. Does it look good for me to ask for them? Absolutely. I don't want to look like the woman who gave away her kids and just forgot about them. Would Michael want Joe to have them? I think it would be the last thing that he would ever have wanted."

This is not the first time Rebecca White has been accused of making false statements for financial gain. Attorneys allege she's also committed such "malicious acts" against Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss and Robbie Williams.
