Amidst ongoing reports about Michael Jackson's ex-wife, Debbie Rowe, and her potential role in the future custody of his three children, the former dermatology nurse has refuted claims that she agreed to receive millions of dollars in exchange for giving up her parental rights. Debbie's lawyer, Eric George, confirmed in a letter to the New York Post that the 50-year-old "has not and will not" relinquish her parental rights. He clarified that she will not accept any money beyond the spousal support previously agreed upon with Michael.

Debbie's legal representatives are currently in discussions with Michael's mother, Katherine Jackson, whom the singer appointed as the guardian of his two children with Debbie: Prince Michael (12), Paris (11), and Blanket (7), whose surrogate mother remains undisclosed. As of now, no agreement has been reached regarding visitation rights or custody, according to Mr. George.

Adding to the complexity, on Wednesday, a friend of Debbie's, Rebecca White, presented emails on a US TV show where the mother-of-two reportedly expressed that she did not seek custody of the children. "I'm not going after custody. These kids are not mine. They were never mine. They were always Michael's. I was Michael's best friend," read one email supposedly written on July 2 by Debbie.

Meanwhile, Michael's brother Tito has addressed claims that Michael may not be the biological father of his children, emphasizing that the truth is evident in their eyes, particularly Blanket's. Tito dismissed doubts based on skin color, stating, "Those eyes don't lie. Them eyes are Michael over again. I see a lot of Michael in him." He emphasized that the children have been raised to understand their father's global stardom, and going out in disguise was a way for them to experience normal childhood activities. As the custody battle persists, Tito assured that his niece and nephews would be "well taken care of and looked after," expressing confidence in their success and future well-being.
