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.

Kaatherine needs to be examined for competency, mental stability she is twisting this Estate administrator to gain control of Michaels money. All of Michaels money. The greedy old bitch, protecting her vile JW wittness brutal husband.Joe. It is very understandable why Michael eliminated all of his sibling and his FAther from his Will/Trust. They did not have any contact with Michaels children before his death. Remenber Michael was in Euorpe right after the trial. The children do not know the Jacksons. Michael kept them hidden from the public eye so they could live a normal life. Just as Caroline Kennedy did with her children. What did the greedy Jacksons do immediately they exposed all their faces. So now these children can never just go to a zoo and not be recognised.or hounded by the press. The jackson did not protect these children from the monent Michael died. They put them on public display to get their own ugly faces in the make a slimy buck. I call that child abuse. But the Jacksons know all about child abuse. The man who abused the man in the coffin was given air time by Larry King to call his son a LIAR. Larry allowed the Abuser Joe on National TV to say he did not abuse his dead Son. Joe was lucky the dead can't speak he can tell all the lies he wants and people like Larry King will given him air time.

IMO the Jackson camp is testing the waters with the public and just throwing things out there to see what the reaction will be.

For God's sake they need to bury their son already.

This is just a ploy so that Katherine can keep those kids. Everyone has seen what a horrible person Joe Jackson is and Katherine is scared that she is going to loose them and her meal ticket. Those kids don't need to be living there with Jermain, Randy their kids (whom were had by the same woman who also lives there). Debbie Rowe is going to burn in hell for not taking her children. Rebbie has money (not like Janet but she has money) so she won't need to sponge off of the children and she is sane and if she were to raise them she should take them to her home and raise them.

The Jackson family is proving itself to be disgusting and I think now people are beginning to realize why Michael had so many demons. These people who say they are his kin only care about his money and only see the children as money and that include Debbie Rowe. Who is looking out for these children? Who is going to love them like their father did? All there grandmother cares about is getting her grubby hands on more money because 40% of 1billion is not good enough for her. This is why Micael left his lawyers in charge of his estate. I hope they fight tooth and nail to preserve Michael's legacy and stop the Jackson's from devouring these children's inheritance.

Sorry for MJ, but the oldest boy is just reaching the age Michael goes for.

Rebbie is the best for those kids. She has a very stable home life and that's what those kids need. Janet, I'm sure, we'll be very involved, but unless she is willing to give up her career completely, not the best choice right now. Also, the kids need to start interacting with other children their age, ie go to school, get involved in activities, and Rebbie will be able to participate in all of this.

I think Rebbie is absolutely the best choice. I've been saying all along that she would make the most sense---she's been happily married for 20+ years, she lives a quiet, down-to-earth life, and her own children are a credit to her.

No one is stopping you from doing that. Why would you think a celebrity gossip blog should do that? IMO people who say that are just trying to act superior and probably have no interest in that or they won't be reading here much less commenting..

tellitlikeitis are correct here....that's exactly what the Jackson camp is doing. Testing the water. If they're smart they will heed the reaction from the water that runs the deepest.
