Jackson, ex-wife close to visitation agreement

There’s word Michael Jackson and his ex-wife are close to a deal in a dispute over two of the pop star’s children.

Debbie Rowe Jackson is trying to win the right to visit the kids — after she voluntarily gave up her parental rights in 2001. A judge voided the order last year — after her attorneys argued that proper court procedures weren’t followed. Jackson has since appealed the voiding of the order.

Jackson attorney Michael Abrams says a settlement “is in sight” — and that it “will be to everybody’s satisfaction.”

When Rowe sought the change in the visitation arrangement, one of the reasons she cited was that the pop star had been charged with child molestation. Jackson ended up being acquitted of those charges in June.
