Is he thinking about exploiting Paris and Blanket? Or is it just my imagination?

oh yeah thats what we really need to have this guy push those little kids into show biz like he did with all his kids, I really hope if they do get custody which I'm sure MJs mom will, that this guy really thinks before he acts and doesnt go down the same path that he did with his kids before, you would think their would be nothing to worry about because these are his grand kids but the way he acted towards his kids when they were younger, their own father, you never know. All this spotlight on those kids most be so hard on the top of the fact what everyone is going through and all his family and friends with his tragic death. Paris was extremely brave to speak in front of the whole world but that doesnt mean she should go into performing Joe! I wonder if he makes those kids call him Joe like he made his own kids? Anyone can be redeemed if they realize what they did was wrong and want forgiveness but I guarantee this guy doesnt think he did anything wrong. sad

To Joe: The "foul play" started 45 years ago when you exploited your children, mentally and physically abused Michael to the point that he hated himself. And with all his talent, he could still not quiet those voices in his head telling him he was worthless and ugly. YOU, Joe, are the perpetrator of the foul play! And to everyone who has questions about whether Michael is the father of his children.... why wouldn't he go looking for a better gene pool? Not because he wanted white children, but maybe he didn't want his children to suffer being called "potato nose", which they might have inherited from his gene pool. Bottom line, he was their DADDY, regardless of who bioligically parented them. And he tried to shower them with the love and acceptance he never received from his father. Now why doesn't everyone just leave them in peace and pray they can have a halfway normal life, and not end up like their father. And if there is ANY justice in this world, the courts will do everything they can to block Joe Jackson and his band of sharks from EVER profiting from the legacy of Michael Jackson.

If there is a God, He will not let Joe Jackson near those children and He will not let Joe Jackson push those children into the entertainment business!

Hell, It sounds like Joe is getting ready to put Paris and Blanket on the road, How disgusting!!!...He has not been, and never has been a "grieving" Father....Interviews, and lawsuits, and more money opportunities is all he focused on in the future...NOT the well being of the Children or anything else for that matter...I put him in the catagory with the doctors, Sharpton, and Rev. Jackson..They're all leeches!

Mr. Jackson, Sr. really, no one cares to know what you are thinking. Your heavy handed approach to parenting, messed up your kids! Granted, a good deal of us have stories to tell about our own upbringing, but YOU, well you just ooze, corruption, exploitation and evilness. I hope child protective services, bans you from being alone near Michael's children.

Let's hope Michael, has forgiven you and ultimately God.

Rest in peace, Michael.

Ya this man needs to realize he is the ONLY cause of Michael being the way he, is I HATE this guy. Michael would never rest if he heard what he is saying. Michael hated him, he was an abuser and he is by far stupid and an idiot.

Im all for Debbie Rowe getting custody. This creep wants the money. Also, when Janet wanted to stage an intervention, she only had the support of her sister Rebbie and her brother Randi, the others including Germaine signed a statement saying that they were not staging an intervention, that Michael was just fine.
also, its sickens me to think that Joe just gave an interview to primetime on ABC where Martin Bashir, the guy who did that interview 'Living with Michael Jackson' which showed him as a complete reckless father and person.
Joe, you're 79 years old! why do you want the money?!Doesnt your son's death remind you that we all will die one day so whats the point of being greedy. AGH

I just am really confused, if Michael hated his Dad so much why would he leave his kids to his Mom? He would have to know Joe would be around. They have been married 60 years. Even though they live apart I am sure he sees her often. I think Janet should raise the kids. And one more thing, all the talk on TV, I pray the kids don't here it. Everyone asking "Who's The Real Father"... As far as they know MJ is there Daddy. They probably never thought for a moment he wasn't there Dad.
