Katherine Jackson Gets Full Custody of Jackson Children
An agreement has been reached placing Michael Jackson's three children -- Prince Michael (12), Paris (11) and Blanket (7) -- in the care of his mother, 79-year-old Katherine Jackson.
Jackson lawyer L. Londell McMillan broke news of the arrangement on Thursday's CBS "Early Show"; a press release from Jackson's lawyers said the agreement will be presented on Monday to the Los Angeles Superior Court for approval.
The agreement also stipulates that Debbie Rowe, biological mother of Jackson's two eldest children, will have regular visitation accompanied by a child psychologist and that Rowe will not receive any compensation other than the spousal support she has already been receiving.
"There is no situation better for these children than for them to be raised and reared in the loving care of Mrs. Katherine Jackson," McMillan said on CBS.
Licensed clinical psychologist Dr. Andrea Bonior said in a June Celebritology piece that stability is the key to getting the Jackson kids through the loss of their father.
"That most likely means keeping them in the same place where they've lived and trying to keep as many of the same people -- friends, child care providers, and family members -- near them," said Bonior, "along with as much of their daily routine as possible."
Meanwhile, the police continue to look into the circumstances surrounding Jackson's death on June 25. The release of results from the official autopsy was delayed again today by the Los Angeles county coroner's office as the investigation focuses on personal physician Conrad Murray.
