(Newser) – No deal on the custody of Michael Jackson’s children has been reached, Debbie Rowe’s attorney tells CNN. Eric George refuted a story in the New York Post that Rowe had agreed to a $4 million payout to drop her bid to look after Jackson's two elder kids, who are biologically hers, instead of Katherine Jackson, Michael’s mother. The report is “completely false,” George said.
