Michael Jackson might have been gay; Debbie Rowe paid $4M to give up parental rights

Tbd-michaeljackson071509 Yes, we really tried to avoid Michael Jackson news, so we'll keep this short and sweet -- unlike the plethora of dirt being dug up about everyone who cam within 100 yards of the guy.

That means we're skipping the story from the U.K.'s Sun that says MJ was gay and had an "insatiable" desire for sex with half-Asian men and said things like "the King of Pop is going to lick your lollipop," according to biographer Ian Halperin. Because he's just trying to sell and book and we have some standards, you know.

Meanwhile, the New York Post says that Debbie Rowe has given up parental rights to her kids to Katherine Jackson. The price? Oh, only $4 million. Hey, that's $2 mil apiece for Prince Michael, 12, and Paris, 11.

"It's one final payday," a friend of the family said. "They felt is was like a ransom-type thing. (Rowe) jumped back into the picture because she wanted money."

Rowe had forfeited rights back after the kids were born, allowing MJ to raise them for $8 million, plus five annual payments of $900,000. She also popped up in 2001, when Jacko was accused of molestation, but gave up rights again for $4 million more and a $900,000 home.

At least those kids won't be exploited just for money anymore. Unless the Post's report that Joe Jackson wants to combine them with Prince Michael II to form The Jackson 3 is true, that is. Wow, those kids are in soooo much trouble.
