Michael Jackson's Kids Could Turn Preppy

8/23/2009 6:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The home schoolin' days may be over for MJ's kids -- we've learned Katherine Jackson is "seriously considering" sending the golden children to one of the most elite private schools in L.A.



Family sources tell us the Jackson matriarch is talking about enrolling Michael Jr., Paris, and Prince in the Buckley School -- the same place Tito's three kids attended, as well as several other members of the Jackson clan. In fact, Tito's deceased wife, Dee Dee, once served as president of the Buckley Parent's Association.

Our sources say the family has talked to friends and school reps about enrolling the kids.

We're told Grandma Katherine used to show up for different events at the school and just loves the place -- great education, it's close to their Encino home, and it's heavily protected.

Problem is ... the school ain't so easy to get into. Plus, classes start really soon -- as in this Wednesday -- and it's unclear if the kids have even applied yet.

One cautionary note: Paris Hilton attended Buckley as well as ... (gulp) ... Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian.

I've viewed the untold story too now, thanks for the link! Please go watch it. I doubt the money the Chandlers lied to get and what the Gavin Arviso family did will ever render them any good. No good person will ever have anything to do with them. Only viscious people will like them. They are in a downward spiral - selfish, selfish people.

TMZ please REMOVE pictures of MJ's children from your website ASAP. These young innocent children are becoming targets for evil ADULTS (NOT CHILDREN) who are jealous and wouldn't think twice in writing VILE things about these children you are mourning the death of their father. TMZ please do the right thing by these children. For the record Paris is definetly MIXED race, Paris is just like Quincy Jones daughter. Why does Prince have vitilgo on his hands if he's supposed to be related to Mark Lester??? Make the world a better place.

Don't blame TMZ. How about blaming the Jackson family. They exploited the children at the memorial. They continue to exploit them by releasing private MJ home movies to gossip shows.

Michael Jackson's Children Spend Weekend in Vegas

With their grandma by their side, Michael Jackson's children had a splashing good time over the weekend in Las Vegas.

Prince Michael I, 12, Paris, 11, and Prince Michael II (a.k.a. "Blanket"), 7, were spotted at the Palms Casino Resort's pool sipping on virgin strawberry-banana daiquiri's on Sunday. They, along with three friends, dunked each other in the pool and swam around for more than two hours. Blanket, wearing a life preserver, even showed some of his moves, dancing on the edge of the pool before jumping in the water.

Katherine Jackson kept a close eye, accompanied by a friend and nanny, and smiled over the pool-side antics.

It wasn't all fun in the sun, though, as the children dined in fashion, too. With their uncle Jermiane with them on Saturday night, the family had dinner at Vegas hotspot N9NE Steakhouse's private dining room.

It may have seemed like just a quiet weekend at home to them though – the kids lived at the Palms Hotel with their father for about two months in early 2008

Michael Jackson's tortured last years and tragic death are absolutely heartbreaking. I blame Bashir, Dimond, Sneddon and the media who convicted and destroyed an innocent man and the people who could have protected this meek and vulnerable man but wanted money from him instead. He must have suffered terribly. No wonder he turned to prescription drugs.

Anne, Michael was a grown man that needed to take some responsibility for living the kind of lifestyle that constantly raised suspicion about his activities.

He was warned many times that sleeping with young boys in your bed did not look good to many people.

Michael Jackson never had sex with any female.

Lisa Marie Presley said they did because she was so embarassed that she chose to marry a man who had absolutely no interest in her sexually.

She was trying to make him appear normal. Look at every pic of them together, and you will see a gang of young boys accompanying their every move.

************************************************
I agree with you. How these people so heartless to do such terrible things to another human being. Now that MJ dies, I wonder how they sleep at night. Also those two "accusers" and their families were playing big part of MJ's death. The Jackson's family should damages against these blood sucking families.

846 - how would you know if Michael ever had sex with a female? Don't you think Lisa Marie would make sure before she married? I think so. Also, they still met for a while after the divorce. Obviously he didn't look very actively for sex, unless there is some new contradiction around the corner, which I doubt. Nobody knew why he felt this way, but it seems to me he didn't fit into any usual mold. He is far from sexless on stage.
