Michael Jackson's ex-wife, Debbie Rowe, has accused the singer of abducting their two children, according to TMZ.com.

The site reports that Rowe filed papers Monday in a secret hearing held near Palm Springs making the accusations. She has filed a custody suit against the singer, which is being handled through private arbitration, according to the site.

Jackson, now living in the Persian Gulf kingdom of Bahrain, was acquitted in June of molesting a boy at his Neverland ranch near Santa Barbara, Calif.

He has two children with Rowe, son Prince Michael Jackson Jr., born in 1997, and daughter Paris Michael Katherine Jackson, born in 1998. He also has a second son, also named Prince Michael Jackson.
