Michael Jackson's ex gives up right to kids

Michael Jackson's ex wife has given up all visitation rights to their two children.
Debbie Rowe, who filed for visitation rights and custody of nine-year-old Prince Michael and eight-year-old Paris, agreed to an annual payment of £395,000 in return for relinquishing her parental rights.
Jackson's lawyer Michael Abrams said: "Michael is satisfied with the result, and I believe Ms Rowe is satisfied."
Rowe voluntarily gave up all visitation rights in 2001, but changed her mind after Jackson was accused of child molestation two years later, according to court documents.
The 48-year-old pop superstar was acquitted of all charges in 2005 and has been living in Bahrain for the past year.
Jackson and Rowe, a nurse for his plastic surgeon, married in 1996. She filed for divorce in 1999.
Meanwhile, Jackson has been spotted dressed as a woman.
The 'Thriller' singer was seen in St Tropez, France, wearing a ruffled blouse, tight jeans and stilettos - hiding his face under a huge floppy blue hat and carrying a fluorescent orange handbag.
This is not the first time he has been seen wearing ladies' clothing
During a trip to Ireland this year, Jackson was seen draped with women's scarves. He was also recently seen dressed as a woman, applying make-up in the ladies' toilets during a shopping trip in Bahrain.
At the time, his spokesman said it was a mistake and that Jackson had been unable to read the Arabic sign for 'ladies' toilets.
