Jackson And Rowe's Business Deal Revealed

Subscribe to Michael Jackson alerts

Michael Jackson entered into a business deal with his ex-wife Debbie Rowe to enable the pop superstar to become a father, according to newly-released court papers.

The official documents come as part of a ruling from a California Court of Appeal, issued yesterday (15FEB06), rejecting Jackson's claim that Rowe gave up her parental rights.

In the decision, obtained by entertainment website TMZ.com, it explains that in October 1999, while they were married, Rowe and Jackson entered into an agreement that the pop star would have sole legal and physical custody of their two children, MICHAEL JR and PARIS.

In 2001, the trial judge issued an order terminating Rowe's parental rights.

But the following year, Rowe went back into court arguing that the court's termination order was invalid. The trial judge struck down his own order, admitting he had made a mistake by not appointing independent lawyers for the children.

Now the California Court of Appeal has also ruled the termination document is not valid.

Former dental nurse Rowe is currently locked in a bitter custody fight with Jackson.

In the new Appeal Court ruling, it states that Rowe took action to get her kids back "because of concerns arising from Michael's criminal prosecution and press reports Michael had associated with the nation of Islam, whose members Deborah believed do 'not like Jews'".

The ruling continues, "Because she is Jewish, Deborah feared the children might be mistreated if Michael continued his association with the Nation of Islam."
