The Jewish Jackson Angle: King of Pop’s Kids Are MOT’s

The JTA has the following story: “Jackson kids’ Jewish mother could regain custody,” which notes:

Reports are conflicting over whether the Jewish mother of two of the late Michael Jackson’s children will seek custody.

Jackson, the “King of Pop” who died Friday of unspecified causes, and Debbie Rowe are the parents of Prince Michael I, 12, and Paris Michael Katherine, 11. By virtue of having a Jewish mother, they are considered Jewish.

According to London’s Sunday Times, sources close to Rowe said she will not fight Katherine Jackson, the pop star’s mother, for custody of the children, and that she would be satisfied with more access to them.

But Iris Finsilver, Rowe’s attorney, told the Associated Press that she was certain that Rowe would seek custody of the two children. Finsilver had previously confirmed that Rowe was Jewish.
