Michael Jackson's ex-wife Debbie Rowe eyes custody claim, report says

Posted on

The biological mother of Michael Jackson’s two eldest children, son Prince Michael, 12, and daughter Paris Michael Katherine, 11, reportedly told a reporter from the NBC affiliate in Los Angeles that she is willing to submit to DNA testing to prove her maternity, as well as psychological testing. She also said she would seek a restraining order to keep Jackson’s father, Joe Jackson, away from the children, even though she surrendered full parental rights of Prince Michael and Paris Michael Katherine following the dissolution of her three-year marriage to Jackson in 1999. A judge has delayed a custody hearing, originally scheduled for Monday, until July 13, at the request of attorneys for Rowe and Michael Jackson’s mother, Katherine.
