An agreement has been reached between the party that represents Katherine Jackson with that of Debbie Rowe regarding who will get the custody of Michael Jackson's children; Prince Michael Jackson Jr., Prince Michael Jackson II, and Paris Michael Katherine Jackson. It has been confirmed through various reports on the web on Thursday, July 30 that Katherine will keep the three kids in her full care with visitation rights for Debbie.
According to a report by NBC, under the newly-reached deal Debbie, who is the biological mother of Prince Michael Jr. and Paris Michael, will retain her parental rights to both kids, but has agreed not to challenge the custody arrangement in court. Besides, she will not be granted any extra money. In an interview with CBS' "The Early Show", Katherine's attorney Londell McMillan said, "It's an agreement, an agreement for the best interests of the children. This is not a money deal. This is not about money."
"The parties engaged in a dignified discussion that resulted in a dignified outcome," Debbie's attorney Eric George echoed the sentiments. "The sole consideration between the parties was the best interests of the children. I'm proud to have worked with such professionals who represented Ms. Jackson, and I am particularly proud of Deborah for her integrity and selflessness."
NBC, furthermore, mentioned that Prince Michael Jr. and Paris Michael do know Debbie is their mother. And as part of the agreement, both of them will begin to have a relationship with Debbie with the supervision of a child psychologist. The agreement reportedly will be presented Monday, August 3 to the Los Angeles Superior Court for approval.
