Michael Jackson's Kids to be Raised By Aunt

7/23/2009 3:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rebbie JacksonMultiple sources in the Jackson family tell us even if Katherine Jackson gets custody of Michael Jackson's kids, Michael's big sister Rebbie Jackson will raise the children.

The 59-year-old singer, who shares a home in Las Vegas with her hubby of over 20 years, has kept a low public profile, but privately she has been deeply involved in the lives of Michael's children.

We're told Rebbie is currently living with Katherine at the family's Encino home and is caring for the kids day-to-day. As for the kids ... they all adore her.

Although the family is divided on many issues involving Michael's estate, we're told there's no argument when it comes to Rebbie caring for the kids. Whether she eventually becomes the custodial parent in name or not, she will end up with the primary responsibility of raising Michael's three children.

I agree with 213 . I noticed the ears too and they certainly are a genetic signature.I get the feeling that prior to his death the children had little to do with the Jackson tribe. Sad they uncovered their faces because now everyone know what they look like shame for their identities to be revealed now.
I hope that over time that Debbie gets to know her children and that they become part of her life. I can't think of anything more tragic than loosing your children. It must have been terrible for her. all these years.
These children should also attend school and make some of their own friends. They are old enough. Can't be much fun hanging around grandma house all the time.
I say joint custody with Debbie . Every child wants to know their mother .

I think with all the nasty comments lately about Katherine, the family was afraid they'd lose the kids (i.e.money) and so they figured to go with Rebbie since nobody ever heard bad things about her. I think Janet just doesn't want to be anything but an aunt, and so they all had to come up with someone else..

TO 224. That's true and it shows they are desperate and grapsing at straws which is a good sign. I hope they lose it all. The kids and the money.

At the end of the day, the best thing for those kid's would be to be with their mother Debbie. PLAIN & SIMPLE !!!

Jackson family way to huge and unstable. It will be a fight for Debbie, but in the end she will find it was well worth it:-)

what    

The Will/Trust says Kathrine if she is not able or refuses then Diana Ross. It does not mention Janet, Rebbie or Joe. Just Katherine. Katherine is now petitioning the court to be the Administrator of the Wil/Trust saying that Michael her son was incompetent in 2002 when he wrote this second Will/Trust. That means that Michael was Incompetent when he bailed her arse out with the BAnkruptcy in 1999 I believe that hole thing was just recently settled. Katherine does not own Encino Michael does. He has been paying for every thing Kathrine since 1999. Does that mean that Michael was incompetent when he chose his mother to watch over his children in the event of his death. Katherine is worst than Debbie or Joe. She wants to prove that her son, one of the world greatestest entertainers was incompetent.so she can be the Administrator of his Will/TRust. If she is the Administrator she can not care for the children, What a slime ball she is. A greedy slime ball. of a Mother. Animals treat their children better. The Jackson family are the world most practiced leeches and now their blood sucking lips will show how vile they are because their cash cow is dead.

Deb should have gotten her kids outta that house as soon as she found out mass molestations were occurring but she didn't.
DON'T LET THOSE POOR CHILDREN ANYWHERE NEAR THAT MONSTER!

YES! Rebbie IS the best one to take care of these 3 children! They will be around the most wonderful spiritual people in the world and have the prospect of learning about the true God JEHOVAH. Their lives will be VERY happy and purposeful.

No matter what the kids are mentally screwed, they'll all have to be locked up and medicated before puberty ends.
