Rowe, the mother of Michael's two older children, insisted on the arrangement if she was to not seek custody of the kids according to the UK's Daily Mail.

Michael said that his father beat him as a child and is widely blamed for many of Jackson's problems later in life. Joe Jackson is currently estranged from wife Katherine.

Attorneys for Rowe and Katherine Jackson are close to finalizing the details of the agreement which would give Jackson's 79-year-old mother custody of the children.
