Attorney Iris Finsilver says she was the one who told Rowe of Jackson's death.
The attorney says she isn't currently representing Rowe, but has no doubt Rowe will seek custody of the children.
Finsilver says she doesn't know if Rowe has been having visits with the children, Prince Michael Joseph Jackson and Paris-Michael Katherine Jackson. Rowe and Jackson married in 1996 and divorced in 1999.
Finsilver says Rowe is trying to grasp the fact that Jackson has died. She says Rowe loved Jackson for a long time.
In a prepared statement released by Finsilver, Rowe calls Jackson "a beautiful and loving soul."
