Hmmmmm.... Did NY Post Make A Mistake?

LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- No deal has been reached between Michael Jackson's mother and his ex-wife over the custody of the late singer's children, according to a lawyer in the case.

Debbie Rowe is scheduled to attend a child custody hearing on Monday.

Eric George, who represents Debbie Rowe, the biological mother of Jackson's two oldest children, said a newspaper report that Rowe had agreed to take $4 million not to challenge Katherine Jackson for custody was "completely false."

Jackson's lawyer did not respond to requests for comment Tuesday.

The Jackson family lawyer said last week that they were working to "privately and amicably resolve" the matter.

A child custody court hearing, which had been set for this week, was delayed until next Monday at the request of lawyers for Jackson and Rowe, a court official said.

Katherine Jackson gained temporary guardianship of the children soon after her son's death last month.

Rowe's lawyer said two weeks ago that "Debbie has not reached a final decision concerning the pending custody proceedings."

The New York Post, quoting an unidentified Jackson family source, reported Rowe had agreed to drop any custody challenge for a $4 million payment.
