Following the news of Michael Jackson’s passing – the news that was literally heard around the world – a frantic call to 911 has been released. Due to the rather lengthy and sometimes confusing audio, I didn’t think it was appropriate for me to transcribe it in case I missed a few things. The tape can be heard HERE.
Ever since he passed, questions of who will get custody of his three children have been asked. Currently, Prince Michael, 12, Paris, 11, and Blanket, 7 (real name: Prince Michael II) are in the custody of Jackson’s mother Katherine. However, it is rumored that Debbie Rowe, the mother of the two older children, could get custody if she wants.
There are many reports that Rowe waived her parental rights over the two kids after her divorce from Jackson, but the decision was reversed by the judge. Jackson and Rowe came to an agreement on their own, with Rowe retaining parental rights and receiving a check while Jackson had custody.
The fact that she once tried to waive her parental rights will certainly come into play, and could hurt her chances of gaining custody over the two children.
But because Rowe isn’t the mother of Jackon’s third child “Blanket,” the court may not want to separate the siblings (rightfully so!!!)
In my opinion, I believe their grandmother (Jackson’s mother Katherine), should gain custody of all three children in order to prevent the siblings from being separated.
This of course will all be figured out in the near future, but I hope to God that Katherine receives custody so the children can be together and remember their father together, for who he was: a prodigy child, an amazing and incredibly talented performer who will never be matched. No one came before him, and no one will come after him.
