A hearing to consider who will raise Michael Jackson’s three children has been delayed another week, while lawyers work to avoid a court battle over custody. The delay — the third one this month — was announced Friday afternoon by a Los Angeles County Superior Court spokesman
No deal has been reached between Michael Jackson’s mother and his ex-wife over the custody of the late singer’s children, according to a lawyer in the case. Eric George, who represents Debbie Rowe, the biological mother of Jackson’s two oldest children, said a newspaper report that Rowe had agreed to take $4 million not to challenge Katherine Jackson for custody was “completely false.” Jackson’s lawyer has not responded to requests for comment Tuesday. The Jackson family lawyer said last week that they were working to “privately and amicably resolve” the matter.
