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.

This makes the most sense, and I am relieved and so happy about this.
Rebbie is the eldest of the Jacksons, the Most grounded of all of them and probably the most sensible of all of them.
I am so happy for the children, who are going to be the receivers of this justice, and this is most likely what Michael had in mind when he installed his Mother over the precious Ones.
This is the way it should be.
Thankfully,

Normal person......you are delusional....Debbie Rowe is not a mother...never has been and never will be...except to her horses and dogs.
AND by her own admission, countless times, she doesn't want the kiddos. By her own video taped admission ......she is not a good mother.

Rebbie really does keep a low profile. I never heard of her before MJ passed away. It sounds as if she is a really stable person. God bless those kids.

Rebbie could have been a good choice, EXCEPT, she lives in Vegas, and so does 'daddy' Joe Jackson. Care to bet that he will have a huge roll in their lives if Rebbie raises them?? MJ didn't want his kids around his dad or he would have included him in the will.......

I'm just saying...............

Normal Person ...you are delusional...Debbie Rowe is not a mother...never has been ...never will be...except to her horses and dogs.
By HER OWN repeated videotaped admissions....she DOES NOT WANT THESE KIDDOS....AND furthermore she has generously also admitted....that.....SHE IS NOT A GOOD MOTHER.
And that comes.....STRAIGHT FROM THE HORSES MOUTH.
Thank you Debbie Rowe.....for your honesty.

She was married to him and not a surrogate. you are are all delusional if you think that children don't want to know their mother. None of us know what the real deal was. Any money she would have received would have been alimony just like everyone else that gets divorced. She got very little when you think how much Paul McCartney wife got. Let these children get to know their mother they may be sick of the hole Jackson tribe sh*t. If the Jackson are such great parents why would Janet give her kid away.
These children are teenagers not babies and they should have a right to a life of their own. Send them to boarding school so they can make friends and have a life. Too bad everyone know what they look like now.

Look at the sheltered life they lived, and their freaky druggie father who hooked himself up to an iv to knock himself out for 3 days at a time.
When he wasn't knocked out he thought he was Peter Pan.
He had kids sleeping in his bed.

I dont think ANY Jackson can screw them up any more than Michael could have.

what    

Rebbie lives in Vegas so this Encino stuff is just BS. She has three adult children all of which are trying to be in show business. Not to normal a life. In 2003 she attempted a come back and her son was playing the guitar while she was on stage. She is 59 years old and is in the cult of the JW. Yes she had been married to the same man for 30 some years but she is a JW and you don't divorce in that cult. katherine has been married to Joe for many more years and we know how JW.s feel about spare the rod and spoil the child. Evidenceed by Joes brutality. Joe Illigetimate child Joh lives in Vegas with Brutal Joe. She is heavy set and has worked as a baggage person for the airlines down there. Rebbie is trying to promote her kids and their entry into show business by having her name associated with Michaels Jacksons children. She is just as slimey as the rest of the Jacksons. She is probably worst cause she lives so close to her Father Brutal Joe. Probably thinks he is a great guy seeing she still practices his religion.

If I were Debbie Rowe I would not allow the kids to live in Las Vegas at that is where Joe lives. They should stay in CA to be near Katherine even if she is not raising them.....
