Rowe

Settles Custody Issues

Over Jackson Kids

7/30/2009 10:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0717_rowe_52728882_getty_exd-1TMZ has learned Debbie Rowe has settled her custody issues over Michael Jackson's children and it doesn't involve a single penny ... but it does involve a shrink.

Sources tell us, Rowe has agreed that Katherine Jackson will be the guardian of Michael's children, subject to the judge's approval.

Rowe will get visitation of the two children she had with Michael.

But here's what's interesting -- Rowe wants and will get a psychologist who will visit the children and help them adjust to her being in their lives on a meaningful basis.

Rowe will maintain her parental rights. We're told the agreement does not specify the amount of visitation.

The agreement says Rowe has no parental rights to Blanket, Jackson's youngest child.

I'm very glad to hear this will be resolved in a mannerly way; there is no way that one can deny who the mother is and preparing the children as soon as possible is quite thoughtful. I find this is a very correct and wise solution.

Surely those kids are better off without her. She sold them to Jackson and had her parental rights removed, so she doesn't deserve them. They probably don't even know who she is.

Umm    

Sounds good.

bobmoo79 - remember MJ had photos of her taken with him and the kids so they would know about her when they asked questions as they got older. Seemed like he recognized it would come up and that's how he had decided to deal with it.

she is best to keep her distance from the children she is not mother material what so ever, too rough around the collar for me , those children weren't brought up like that, besides her appearance and actions don't speak as a mother in regards to those children and never have, not that Michael is gone she will step forward she should have done that a long time ago if she was a real mother even if Michael had physical custody, lots of dad's do. She to me is a poor excuse for a parent and 12 years have gone by now a little too late there relationship will never be one of mother and child.

Whamo    

Why does everyone hack on this women? Why is she any different than any other surrogate mother? I know she married him but you know that was Michael's idea so to make it look "normal" .Yes she got paid as does any other surrogate mother. She just happened to be paid more. Money's relative to the client's bank account.
She's never interfered or asked for more money. She's never threatened a tell all book. She just seems to get beaten on because she ain't pretty.

just asking    

That is pretty smart on her part. A good move actually. Who knows what MJ could have said about her to the children. Having to lives their lives behind mask and such.

I don't get it...
Oh please God don't let any of Debbie Rowes genes dominate these poor kids looks. Again like the above poster said"Michael,what were you thinking??? ugh... R.I.P. Michael...Please God, let the good gene overide the horrible looking genes..And protect them from the cult that will prevent them from Celebrating Holidays,and Birthdays,and getting Blood transfusions. AMEN!!

A very shrewd, correct decision.
There is no way that the childred can grow up without contact to their Mother, whatsoever happened, or people 'think'. I wish them all the best, with all the love of Michael in their hearts and memories, for their hopefully happy future.
Debbie: My respect for a carefully thought-out decision taking the interests of the children as top-priority!
