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.

Let me assure you that the people on this site that is putting DR down are not true MJ fans. It was these same people who during MJ's horrible trial were on the different web boards bashing MJ Here they are again but this time they are bashing Debbie Row and Mj's family. True MJ fans would not be doing that the true MJ fans are all about love.

82. To the poster about genetics.. that is so no true. As an african american or black person, we come in varying shades within families from almost white (can pass for white) to blue black) within the same family. This depends on the lineage of the family. So it depends. So it is possible. My husband's grandmother who was a black woman looked white and people thought she was, but his nephew is very dark. and there are others in his immediately family who are dark. My husband looks hispanic but he is african american.

your stupid to and like others blinded by the infatuation of a pedophile, I bet he makes you wet when you think about him.

Those KIds are Caucasion not mixed.... Michal was a drak black man and the only way you can see if those kids resemble MJ is to look at his Jackson 5 Photos as they are the only pictures of a medically unaltered Michael.

Putting Michaels Kid pictures next to his three children show no resemblance. And to say there is just shows everyone on here how stupid you really are


Your a DUMB ASS

Don't you think Blanket looks a lot like Miko Brando? Michael such a star f***er what with the Elvis connection, Liz Taylor and Diana Ross wouldn't it be just like him to have Marlon Brando's grandson as his own??? Michael and Miko were really close friends....hmmmmmm.

To # 76. You are the plain ignorant and dumb one. You really need to get your facts straight before you speak. You sound like a real idiot. I've worked in Labor and Delivery for the past 20 years. Just because the father is black and the mother is white does not automatically make the children black nor does it automatically give them black characteristics. 95% of the time, the child picks up the MOTHER'S characteristics REGARDLESS of race and I've seen it plenty in my line of work. State your source for your information. Before you start calling someone a drug addict loser for voicing their opinion, get your FACTS straight. Seems to me that you are the one with only half a brain if you have any brain at all. Perhaps you need to brush up on your BASIC GENETICS. It is clear by your post, you cannot speak English properly and you can't spell either.

Debbie gave birth to Prince and Paris, MJ didn't have ANY blood relationship with them. He didn't even use his own sperm... or perhaps he didn't have any. Prince and Paris are white, I hope Katherine will teach them about their European heritage, just as a white parent has to teach a black child about their black heritage. And poor Blanket, not only does he have the most stupid name ever, he has absolutely no blood father or mother. I would not be surprised at all if he goes off the rails at some time with this heritage. Since he has no 'nature', all he will ever have is 'nurture' and let's face it, his isn't the best so far in his short life.

Too many people are ignorant regarding the mixture of races. The father can be very black and the mother very white and the baby can come out white. I've seen paternity tests on tv which confirm this and there are many children who are brothers and sisters and don't look anything alike. My cousin looks black and his sister looks Hispanic and they have the same parents so you never can determine what a child is going to look like just by looking at the parents. There was also a news report a few months ago about twins where one baby came out black and the other was white and they WERE full blood siblings. Please do some research and understand what interracial really is before you determine a stranger's kids aren't theirs. If they are Michael's biological kids or not this will not affect any of you and I really believe we will never know because conducting DNA tests would be unnecessary and wouldn't change anything. It would just hurt the children and the family.
