Jackson Guardianship Hearing Delayed

7/17/2009 7:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael JacksonThe guardianship hearing in the Michael Jackson case has been postponed ... and our sources say the delay is because Katherine Jackson and Debbie Rowe are close to a settlement.

The hearing was set for Monday, but is now delayed to August 3.

As we reported, lawyers for Katherine Jackson and Debbie Rowe have been hashing out a settlement and we're told an agreement is on the horizon. The discussions, we're told, is amicable and it involves the children -- not money.

Sources say it looks like Debbie Rowe will not object to Katherine getting custody. As for Rowe, she had an agreement with Jackson that was signed several years ago that gave her an undisclosed sum of money spread out over a period of years. That agreement survived Jackson's death and is unaffected by custody issues.

The court ruled Katherine will continue on as legal guardian until the hearing on August 3.

No mention of Aunt Janet, yet it was clear to anyone watching MJ's memorial that his three children gravitated to her and appeared to have a close rapport with their Aunt Janet (who can forget Paris speaking at MJ's memorial under the watchful, caring of Janet -- they were like mother and daughter; it was the most poignant, unforgettable scene in the entire tribute-event). In addition to MJ's comment that "Janet is the sanest one in the family," she is focused, talented, grounded, prudent, an astute business woman (who handles success, not the other way around): she's independently successful, so no egregious conflict of interest there ... and she has appeared sincere and not grandstanding throughout the entire ordeal since MJ's death. The baby of the Jackson clan has grown into the most mature, impressive one: She gets my vote.

i know not just me. But that little boy blanket if you see the picture of him sitting next to Mrs Jackson. the mouth and chin area,
they look like blood relatives. Are we sure blanket is not the real deal here? he could be Michael Jacksons real son!
i really think something about that boy is so strangly familiar.
like i have seen him before in an adult. he looks like MJ!

My opinion on the situation it was a will. and I feel as if Michael wishes should be granted he want his mother to guardian the children, but them again the kids want Janet Jackson to guardian them.. the kids never said anything about Debbie guardian them. # 13 you have to understand Michael Jackson isn't naturally ugly but he was naturally beautiful to me before the surgery..... and before the skin disease and he still looked good after until the surgery, but beauty is held in the inside not the outside and the way people descried him the made him seen like a loving person to everyone
