Lawyers: Debbie Rowe Doesn't Want Money
Debbie Rowe, the mother of Michael Jackson's two older children, isn't seeking a payout from the Jackson family, her attorney says.
In a letter to the New York Post, Rowe's attorney Eric George refuted an article in Tuesday's paper that quoted an anonymous source who said that Katherine Jackson paid Rowe $4 million to solidify a custody agreement between the women. George's letter states unequivocally that no agreement — legal or financial — exists between Jackson and Rowe, that Rowe has not relinquished her parental rights and that the two women have not negotiated any new custody agreement.

"It would be easier to identify those few background facts that are accurate than to catalog the number of blatant falsehoods in your story," the letter reads.
The attorney's office provided a copy of the letter to TVGuide.com. The New York Post did not immediately reply to a request for comment.

Rowe gave birth to Michael Jackson's two elder children, Prince Michael and Paris.
