Michael Jackson's kids will be growing up as Jacksons according to a press release this morning.
The mother of two of Jackson's kids has agreed that Katherine Jackson, their grandmother, will have full custody of all three of Michael's children and that it's best for all three to stick together. She will have visiting rights according to the agreement.
Meanwhile it has been reported that Joe Jackson, Michael's dad, has plans for the kids to begin practicing for a singing career. "I think these little folks have had an unsettled life and need a Firm Hand to guide them, into a musical career" he reportedly told a source. "And who but yours truly could produce another Michael Jackson?"
Katherine Jackson's attorney, L. Londell McMillan, made the announcement this morning on the CBS Early Show, revealing that after several weeks of negotiations, Ms. Rowe, the biological mom of 12-year-old Prince Michael and 11-year-old Paris, agreed to terms that will give the 79-year-old Jackson matriarch full custody in exchange for visitation rights.
According to both, there has been no financial dealing involved.
"It's an agreement...for the best interests of the children. This is not a money deal. There's no situation better for these children than to be raised and reared under the care of their grandmother, Mrs. Jackson," her lawyer said.
Most hope she knows how to keep them from Joe.
