An attorney for Michael Jackson's ex-wife Debbie Rowe on Tuesday angrily denied reports that she had agreed to take millions of dollars to give up parental rights to her two children with the King of Pop.
In a letter to the New York Post, attorney Eric George said that Rowe, who was married to Michael Jackson from 1996 to 1999 and is the mother of his two oldest children, "has not and will not" give up her parental rights.
Nor will Rowe, whose attorneys have been in talks with lawyers for Michael Jackson's parents, Katherine and Joe, take any money beyond the spousal support to which she and the singer agreed upon years ago, George's letter states, reports Reuters.
Debbie Rowe told a backstabbing pal "Hell no!" to the idea of raising the two kids she bore ex-hubby Michael Jackson, bombshell e-mails she reportedly wrote reveal.
"Do I want the kids? Hell no! Does it look good for me to ask for them? Absolutely," she wrote July 5 to friend Rebecca White, ExtraTV.com reported. "I don't want to look like the woman who gave away her kids."
Rowe, 50, is considering a custody bid for Prince Michael, 12, and Paris, 11, as her lawyers discuss private settlement options with grandmother Katherine Jackson, sources told the Daily News.
