Jackson's Kids: 'We Want to Stay with Grandma'

6/27/2009 1:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sources close to the Jackson family tell us Michael Jackson's three children -- Michael Joseph, Jr., Paris Michael Katherine and Prince "Blanket" Michael II -- say they want to stay with their grandparents, specifically Katherine.

Sources say MJ's kids will continue to live with Katherine Jackson at the family's Encino home. We're told the family is 100 percent behind this -- feeling that Katherine and Joe Jackson are the only people who can help the children understand who their father was, help them grieve, and teach them to deal with life in the spotlight.

We're also told the kids are healthy but, as expected, they "miss their daddy." They have no relationship with Debbie Rowe, who is the biological mother of Michael and Paris.

All of this will be critical to the case if, as expected, Rowe fights for custody.

Just like a sperm donor- Rowe has NO RIGHTS to those children. She basically SOLD them MJ.. *F* that baby factory b*tch

Thank God these kids may finally have some normalcy in their lives.

Which one did he dangle over the balcony again?

But they are the parents who screwed him up to begin with AND they are both WAY TOO OLD to be starting out with kids 7-12 years old. Maybe one of his brothers (certainly not the sisters - they are wacko, too).

I think the kids should stay with their Grandmother, as I do not think the three of them should be separated. Given Prince Michael II has a different mother he may not end up with his siblings. If Debbie Rowe pushed for anything is should be visitation. (Rowe lost credibility for allowing MJ to 'have' the kids, it appears to on lookers she sold those kids). Luckily the two oldest kids could express their thoughts to the courts. I wish MJ's three kids peace. INTERESTING EOUNGH

I think, too, that there should be some DNA testing done on all three kids - I don't think, looking at the kids, that Jackson's sperm (if it existed at all) was used in the fertilization procedures.

Those kids should have the choice of who they want to stay with and if they chose their grandparents, then let them stay! It's wrong to force them to live with their "mom" whom they have never met or known at all. Just pray that they will be able to stay with Michaels family. RIP KING OF POP you will be deeply missed and NEVER forgotten!

Michael dangled Blanket over the balcony... and I agree with Diane. There is something sinister about Joe Jackson....in many of the interviews Michael, Janet, and Latoya did.. whenever the father's name came up.. they could not even look at the interviewer.....

Ok lets really think about this. To say that Katherine and Joe Jackson are the best adults to raise these kids is really a crock of bull. How in the world will they help these kids adjust to life in the limelight when they could not do the same for their own children. Come on, I loved Mike but his adjustment to life in the limelight was not the greatest.

iNTERSTING ENOUGH... Lisa Marie was about the same age as these kids when Elvis died. She is one of few people who know how difficult their lives will be. Elvis died before MTV, the 24 News Cycle, and the Internet, yet Lisa Marie was still hounded at time when hounding really only took place in the big celebrity cities. Now they are hounded everywhere...
