It is being reported that Debbie Rowe, the mother of two of Michael Jackson’s kids, will take a $4 million payout to forfeit her rights as a mother to the children she had with Michael.

-Rebecca White, a close friend of Debbie Rowe, is opening up exclusively to “Extra” about emails written by Rowe to White regarding the custody of Michael Jackson’s children, sent just days after Jackson’s death. “I know she’s seeking custody of the children,” Rebecca reveals. “I think she wants the best for the children.” In an email dated July 2, 2009, Rowe’s writing suggests that she appears to be conflicted about going after her biological children — Prince Michael, 12, and Paris, 11. “I’m not going after custody,” Debbie writes to Rebecca. “These kids are not mine. They were never mine. They were always Michael’s. I was Michael’s best friend.” (Read More)
A custody hearing for the Jackson kids is set for July 20th, 2009.
