She said, “I am the one,” but for now the courts told her to just beat it. A Los Angeles judge on Wednesday rejected a British woman’s seemingly off-the-wall claim that she is the mother of Michael Jackson’s three children on a legal technicality, according to City News Service. Nona Paris Lola Jackson, who refers to herself in court papers a “black Jew born in Britain” and signed her lawsuit “dudu,” filed her petition Oct. 20 in Los Angeles Superior Court asserting that she had a sexual relationship for years with the “Billie Jean” singer and asking that she play a role in the child custody agreement Jackson struck with ex-wife Debbie Rowe two months ago. However, after reviewing the case, Superior Court Judge Robert A. Schnider dismissed the motion, saying the U.K. native offered no evidence before the hearing that Jackson and Rowe were alerted to her filing, despite the fact that attorneys for the estranged couple showed up in court. There was no immediate comment from the Jackson camp following Wednesday’s hearing. When the suit was first filed, the entertainer’s publicist, Raymone Bain, said she preferred “not to focus attention to this ludicrous claim.” Nona Jackson sought a legal declaration that she, not Rowe, should be the one Jackson’s kids—nine-year-old Prince Michael Jr., eight-year-old Paris Michael Katherine Jackson and four-year-old Prince Michael II, otherwise known as Blanket—call “mom.” “Michael and I are a sexually active couple and have been this way from the beginning,” her lawsuit asserts. During Wednesday’s hearing, Nona Jackson affirmed her belief by phone, telling the judge that the former King of Pop never had sexual relations with his first wife, Lisa Marie Presley, whom he divorced after 20 months in 1996. Nor, she said, did Rowe, Jackson’s second wife, whom he married later that same year and divorced in 1999 and whom the courts recognize as the mother of Prince and Paris… After Schnider informed Nona Jackson of his decision, the plaintiff reportedly asked him, “So what does that mean for me?” She also insisted that she did send Jackson and Rowe copies of her allegations, which outline her supposedly secret life as the Moonwalker’s paramour and muse (she says she wrote more than 3,000 songs for Jackson). The judge did leave the woman a chance to renew her case, noting that a hearing on the claims could be scheduled again once she serves Jackson and Rowe correctly. But for now, it doesn’t look like Nona Jackson will factor into the custody arrangement the entertainer and Rowe sealed back in September. Although she initially forfeited custody of Prince and Paris, telling the court that she had the children for him and that “they’re his kids,” Rowe attempted to get her visitation rights reinstated in 2003, after Jackson was arrested on child-molestation charges of which he was eventually acquitted. The two sides finally struck a compromise, though neither refused to divulge details of the settlement.
