Debbie Rowe, the ex-wife of Michael Jackson, beat a member of the paparazzi in the courts -- but not on the street.

The photog accused Debbie of assault while he was taking pictures of her during a pap crush following Michael's death. 

After their court date, Debbie was cleared of the allegations and won her case.
