There’s too much drama surrounding Michael Jackson’s death – from the not-yet-released autopsy, to his personal doctor’s involvement during his last hours alive and statements from almost every employee MJ has employed throughout the years. Good news is, a huge custody battle has been avoided. Katherine Jackson, who has been named temporary guardian of Michael Jackson’s three kids, has reached a custody deal with MJ’s ex-wife Debbie Rowe.
After weeks of negotiations, attorneys for Debbie Rowe and MJ’s mom Katherine has reached a custody deal. The Jackson attorney L. Londell McMillan has announced yesterday that Rowe has agreed to give Katherine full custody over 12-year-old Prince Michael and 11-0year-old Paris Jackson, in exchange for her receiving visitation rights.
The statement also noted that the 50-year-old Rowe will not be receiving any money as part of her decision to give up her parental rights and not to challenge the custody arrangement in court. McMillan, said, “It’s an agreement…for the best interests of the children. This is not a money deal. There’s no situation better for these children then to be raised and reared under the care of Mrs. Jackson.”
In Michael Jackson’s will, the popstar wishes his mom to be the guardian of his kids, which included seven-year-old Prince Michael II who was born via artificial insemination and whose mother’s identity remains unknown.
Now, let’s wait for the autopsy report, the real burial, the trial for MJ’s doctors…and so on.
