Michael Jackson's former wife, Deborah Rowe, won a round Wednesday in her battle over their two children, with an appeals court ruling that her parental rights were not properly relinquished under the law. The California 2nd District Court of Appeal ruling set the stage for further litigation between the former couple. The pop star, who has been living outside the United States since his acquittal on child-molestation charges last June, could further appeal the ruling.

Michael Jackson's mother will retain custody of his children, and the biological mother of the two elder children will visit and maintain her legal parental rights under an agreement reached by both sides, lawyers said Thursday. Katherine Jackson, 79, the late pop icon's mother, and Deborah Rowe, 50, who bore Jackson's two older children, also agreed to mutually hire a child psychologist to advise them on how, when and where Rowe's visits should take place, lawyers for Jackson and Rowe said.

In a day otherwise filled with setbacks for prosecutors, a judge ruled Monday that Michael Jackson's ex-wife can testify against the singer in his child-molestation trial. Deborah Rowe is expected to testify this week that Jackson and his aides pressured her into making favorable statements about the pop star in a video responding to a British documentary that questioned his relationships with boys.

Superior Court Judge Robert Schnider repeated an order Wednesday for lawyers for pop star Michael Jackson and his ex-wife to publicly file all documents from the couple's divorce. Jackson and Deborah Rowe had paid a judge to preside over their 1999 divorce, allowing them to avoid a public spectacle. But the proceeding also kept from the public Rowe's allegation that Jackson abducted their two children by taking them to Bahrain without her consent.

For years, Jackson's custody battle with ex-wife Deborah Rowe sometimes seemed to suggest the opposite point.

In a blow to prosecutors, Michael Jackson's ex-wife testified tearfully Wednesday about her hopes to renew the couple's friendship and said her flattering statements about the pop star in a 2003 television program were voluntary and unscripted. The testimony of Deborah Rowe, the mother of two of Jackson's three children, was not as Santa Barbara County Dist. Atty. Tom Sneddon advertised in his opening statement.
