Jackson Lawyer -- Katherine Wants Custody

6/29/2009 9:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A Jackson family lawyer strongly indicated Michael Jackson's mother wants custody of his three kids. Londell McMillan was on "Today" this morning -- where he said Michael's three children will most likely remain with his mother, Katherine, who currently has custody.

McMillan said he hasn't heard that Debbie Rowe has an interest in undermining "the best interest of these children." But as we first reported, Rowe never gave up her parental rights and it's not about "best interest" -- under California law, Rowe could get custody for the asking unless there's proof it would be "detrimental" to the kids.

McMillan also addressed concerns over Dr. Conrad Murray -- saying the family is "troubled with the circumstances surrounding the death."

HATERS ARE DESPERATE!    

Anyone notice that Michael's first two children have his parents' names as their middle names, i.e., 'Joseph' and 'Katherine'?

I still think Katherine was afraid to do anything to protect her kids b/c she was probably getting beat herself. I saw an interview just this morning w/ Joe & Katherine from 2005. He was doing all the talking while she just sat there staring into space like it was her 'place' to be quiet & let the man speak for them both. I think most of the kids have a relationship w/ their mom & not dad. He seems to be by himself in all of this. Al Sharton is following him around everywhere & he has his own laywer.

She need to keep those kids. Her & Joe have not lived together for 10 years. I mean. I guess she didn't divorce him for religious reasons.

Michael Jackson's three children should be with his mother or sister Janet. There is no way Debbie Rowe, who is the one that sold her parental rights, should be allowed anywhere near Michael children. The Jacksons knows and loves the kids and the children are not going to want to leave their family for a strange white tramp that they do not know.

I tried to watch the video, but they said it was removed due to violation of terms. I could just imagine what they were saying to him. Probably a death threat or worse. What did he expect after going on television after his son died and talk about his recording label? That is just downright selfish, greedy and disrespectful. This shows that Michael didnt' lie about his father for sure. Joe Jackson you are lower than a snake in the grass. I guess you have showed your true colors about your own son. What a shame.

First of all i think the kids should be with whoever they choose. Regardless to what Mrs. Jackson's age is, she still has the right to take care of those kids. Also even if their not Micheal's nobody knows but Micheal and whoever else was involved. He was the only person that those kids know as being their father. Also if there is another man that's suppose to be the father, well he is to blame also. I say that to say this. If your kids are living with someone that has a very bad reputation (hear say) then common sense would tell you to get your kids out of that situation. No matter what your getting paid or no matter how much money that person makes and even how famous they may be. It's crazy how everybody wants something or has so much to say about Micheal and his kids now that he is deceased. DAMN let the man rest in peace and let his kids be happy no matter if their with an 80 yr. old or a 50 yr. old. They have that right to be with people that love them. Also Joe is fake. I don't like him that much but once again he is human and he doesn't understand.
