No deal has been reached between Michael Jackson's mother and his ex-wife Debbie Rowe over the custody of the late singer's children, a lawyer for Rowe says.

Eric George - who represents Rowe, the biological mother of Jackson's two oldest children - is slamming a New York Post report that she has agreed to take $4 million not to challenge Katherine Jackson for custody. "Ms. Rowe has not accepted -- and will not accept -- any additional financial consideration beyond the spousal support she and Michael Jackson personally agreed to several years ago," George tells the paper in an open letter sent to Usmagazine.com.

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.
