(Newser) – The custody battle between Katherine Jackson and Debbie Rowe is over, sources tell CBS News. The Jackson matriarch has been awarded full custody of Michael Jackson’s three children, and Rowe will have visitation rights—but receive no money. “It’s an agreement for the best interests of the children. This is not a money deal,” says Jackson’s attorney, adding that Katherine's husband, Joe, will not be involved with raising Prince Michael, Paris, and Blanket.
