A new Fox TV documentary called TMZ Investigates: Who Really Killed Michael Jackson? follows the circumstances surrounding his untimely death and features an interview with Rowe, as seen by The Sun, where she seemingly blames herself for his passing.
According to the outlet, Rowe did not directly talk about Jackson but preferred to focus on dermatologist Arnie Klein, who was a good friend of his and died in 2015.
She reportedly said while sobbing: “I should have done something and I didn’t.”
Rowe alleged there is ‘a number of people that died from addictions and in some way I was part of it’.
The 63-year-old added: “I was basically as bad as him (Arnie Klein) and I am so sorry I participated in it.”
Jackson died in 2009 after suffering a cardiac arrest caused by a prescription drug overdose.
His former doctor, Conrad Murray, was convicted of involuntary manslaughter and spent two years in prison.
Rowe handed over full custody rights of Paris and Prince to MJ following their divorce in ’99 and had parental rights terminated in 2001 before later having that overturned.
