Katherine Jackson Awarded Permanent Custody Of Michael’s Children

August 3rd, 2009 // Leave a Comment

Well, one major situation has been resolved. CNN Reports that Katherine Jackson, 79, was appointed permanent guardian of Michael’s three children — Michael Joseph “Prince Michael” Jackson Jr., Paris-Michael Katherine Jackson and Prince Michael II (known as “Blanket“) — by Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff.

An agreement last week between Katherine Jackson and Debbie Rowe, the mother of the two oldest children, cleared the way for an uncontested custody hearing.

Rowe, who was briefly married to Michael Jackson, agreed not to fight for custody in exchange for visits with the children as recommended by a psychologist.

The agreement does not involve any financial payments to Rowe “apart from the continuation of spousal support payments” that Michael Jackson personally agreed to make to Rowe after their divorce, their lawyers said in a joint statement.

Now lets hope the media leaves the kids alone.
