The former nurse agreed to hand over custody of the children to her ex when the couple separated in 1999 after a three year marriage.
But now her lawyer WARREN CAMP has confirmed Rowe wants to be a bigger part of her kids' lives.
Speaking exclusively to American news show ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT, Camp says, "She really wants to get back into the lives of these children and be a mother to them.
"Her current contact with the children is currently she doesn't have any visitation."
But Camp suggests that Rowe doesn't want to have to pile more legal worries on Jackson as he faces multiple child molestation charges - and may wait to fight for custody of her kids.
Camp adds, "She's certainly not trying to do anything that is in anyway going to jeopardise his criminal case."16/09/2004 02:50
