Debbie Rowe, the ex-wife and biological mother to two of Michael Jackson's three children, plans to attend a custody hearing for the Jackson children.
The hearing has been scheduled at Los Angeles Superior Court on July 20 for temporary guardianship of the children.
Marc Schaffel, a close friend of Rowe, said, "Debbie… will definitely be at the custody hearing."
Prince Michael, 12, and Paris, 11, have been staying with their grandmother Katherine Jackson since their father’s death.
Katherine was named guardian in Jackson’s will and is petitioning the court to keep the children with her.
Officials say neither party is required to appear in court.
