Three years after Michael Jackson’s ex-wife Debbie Rowe filed for visitation rights and custody of the couple’s kids, Prince Michael, 9, and Paris, 8 – something she voluntarily gave up in 2001 – the battle is over. (Jackson has a third child, Prince Michael II, 4, whose mother has never been identified.)
A source close to Jackson – who has been living in Bahrain since 2005 – tells Us that Rowe has given up all visitation rights in exchange for reinstated alimony payments of about $750,000 a year. “It was hard for Debbie, but she’s broke,” explains the insider.
The singer’s attorney, Michael Abrams, tells Us, “Michael is satisfied with the results, and I believe Ms. Rowe is satisfied." Rowe’s lawyer, Marta Almli, had no comment.
