CUSTODY BATTLE

Who Gets Jackson's Kids?

As the initial shock of the King of Pop's death yesterday slowly wears off, concerned fans and people alike wonder what will become of Michael Jackson's three young children: Prince Michael Jr., 12 and Paris Katherine, 11--both of whom were born via artificial insemination to Debbie Rowe, his ex-wife--and Prince "Blanket" Michael II, who was born to a surrogate mother in 2001. Michael's mother, Katherine, reportedly wants the kids. (She and Michael's dad, Joe, had offered to adopt the children in 2005, should MJ lose custody of them during his molestation trials.) But others say that MJ wanted Grace Rwaramba, the 42-year-old nanny who worked for him for almost two decades, to have custody. There is also the possibility that Rowe--whose 1998 divorce gave Jackson full custody--will try to win custody over her two biological children, although it is still too early to tell, as her rep will only say, "Debbie is absolutely inconsolable." According to US Weekly, the children are currently with their grandmother and "are doing fine."
