Debbie Rowe to Get Custody of Michael Jackson's Kids?

The woman who gave birth to Michael Jackson's two oldest children will most likely get custody of them.

It had been thought that Debbie Rowe had given up all of her parental rights to Paris and Michael Jr., but is reporting that's not the case.

During their custody fight in 2005, Debbie attempted to give up her parental rights, praising Michael's parenting. Judge Stephen Lachs initially ruled that her rights were terminated -- but later reversed his decision. As a result, Debbie would now be the one to take custody of Paris and Michael, Jr. She would only be denied if she was found to be "detrimental to the children."

In light of Michael's death, sources told TMZ that Debbie will most probably ask for custody -- and that she will get "a huge amount of child support from Jackson's estate" when she gets it.

Let's hope that's not her main motivation.
