Katherine Jackson // Michael Jackson's Public Memorial

With all the Michael Jackson rumors and drama that’s been surfacing lately, we can finally put to rest one pressing issue and get it out of the way. Michael’s mother Katherine Jackson has received custody of Prince, Paris and Prince II aka “Blanket” under terms of a deal that was reached Thursday (Jul 30). Under the deal, Debbie Rowe, Paris and Prince’s biological mother, will keep her parental rights but will not claim custody or receive any extra money.

“It’s an agreement, an agreement for the best interests of the children. This is not a money deal. This is not about money,” says Katherine’s attorney Londell McMillan. “There is no situation better for these children than for them to be raised and reared in the loving care of Mrs. Katherine Jackson.”

In addition, Prince and Paris know that Debbie Rowe is their mother and therefore, she will be allowed visitation rights to begin having a relationship with her children. The sessions will be supervised by a child psychologist.

We knew that with all the press and alleged rumors, there was no way Prince and Paris could avoid finding out who their real mother was if they didn’t already know. We’re just happy the kids are finally out of limbo and have a place they can call home.
