Joe Jackson gets the boot in custody deal
Joe Jackson will be reportedly forced out of his home per the custody arrangement agreed to by his wife Katherine and Debbie Rowe the biological mother of Michael Jr. and Paris, according to Showbiz 411:
When the custody deal for Michael Jackson’s kids is filed tomorrow in Los Angeles Family Court, it will spell the end of Joseph Jackson living at the family’s home.
Part of the deal made by Debbie Rowe, the mother of the two eldest children, is that Joseph is gone for good from the Hayvenhurst Avenue, Encino, compound that he bought in the 1970s.
Rowe–as noted before–will allow Katherine Jackson to be the official guardian of the children for the time being. It was Rowe who suggested that a psychologist be involved in her meetings with the kids, Prince–whom she calls Michael–and Paris, while she gets to know them.
As for Joe Jackson, Rowe’s lawyers made his absence from the children a non-negotiable part of the custody arrangement. There will be no more talk of Joe the manager trotting out his grandkids as “the Jackson Three” or anything else like that.
I’m in full support of this move. Mostly because “The Jackson Three” is a terrible name. I know Joe’s old, but couldn’t he come up with something more original? Something catchy like “The MJ Vanilla Babies”; “Jesus Juice & Kids”; “Unmolested Funk.” And I’m not even trying. You worked with Berry Gordy, man. C’mon.
