Tito Hits Out At Rowe's Custody Bid

MICHAEL JACKSON's brother TITO has hit out at the star's ex-wife DEBBIE ROWE for fighting for custody of her two children with the singer - insisting she should never have given them up.
Following the tragic icon's death on 25 June (09), his mother Katherine was made temporary guardian of Prince Michael, 12, Paris, 11, and seven-year-old Prince Michael II, aka Blanket.
Debbie Rowe, the biological mother of Prince Michael and Paris, also plans to to attend a Los Angeles Superior Court hearing on 20 July (09) for temporary custody of the children.
But Jackson's elder brother Tito insists Rowe lost all rights over the children the day she gave them up in exchange for cash.
He tells Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper, "She is the mother of Paris and Prince and she should have been there years ago.
"If you really are a mother you wouldn't give your kids up. No matter what amount of money or whatever, you don't give your kids up. It's more than money, it's love. Michael gave her money to go away and she accepted it.
"Everyone does things differently. Maybe Michael wanted to be a single parent, maybe he felt that having a woman around at that time would have been a distraction because he was very focused on his work. Maybe he wanted children without the other side of it."
But despite his seeming animosity towards his late sibling's ex-wife, Tito is convinced Rowe will be allowed to be part of the children's lives if they stay with his mother Katherine.
He adds, "I'm not saying we're going to turn them over to her but definitely she can have rights to visit, hang out and be part of the family. After all is said and done, they are her kids.
"I would like to see her to be part of the Jackson family. There is enough love for everybody."
