A British woman who claims she is the mother of Michael Jackson’s children has been denied a role in the custody settlement.

Nona Jackson asked for joint custody of Prince Michael, Paris and Prince Michael II.

However Los Angeles judge Robert A Schnider said the evidence provided failed to establish “any genetic relationship”.

Schnider also denied Jackson’s request to annul the singer’s marriages to Rowe and Lisa Marie Presley, both of which ended in divorce.

She also requested a petition for child support, along with possession of Jackson’s Neverland Ranch and a San Fernando Valley home.

In court papers Nona Jackson claimed her and the singer were "a sexually active couple", adding that she had written more than 3,000 songs for him.

Nona Jackson's three previous attempts to join in the custody battle were rejected by the same judge in November 2006 and in February and May this year, on the grounds she had failed to notify either Jackson or Rowe of the hearings.

Nona Jackson told the court: “Debbie’s hospital records will prove that my kids are not hers because of DNA."

Michael Jackson settled a custody row with his ex-wife Debbie Rowe over his two eldest children in September last year.

Details of the settlement have not been released yet, reports BBC News.
