I'm sure MJ probably would not have liked the kids with Joseph for Thanksgiving, but unfortunetly, Michael's no longer here. I bet the reason why the kids were with Joe is the fact that their grandmother is a devout Jehovah's Witness. They dont celebrate anything except for anniversaries.

Katherine's faith is probably why she's still married to Joe and just living separate lives. Divorce is strictly prohibited to Witnesses. This is just her way of getting around that. It's just like how they didnt celebrate birthdays, but appointed her birthdate as "Katherine Day".

For 1, 2, 4 and all the others of the kind: YOU ARE SICK!!! YOU NEED HELP!!! Seriously, you need help now, better yesterday until it's not too late for you. Childhood is beautiful and HATELESS. Have a life and let the others have it too.

MJ-UNBREAKABLE    

I am sitting here fighting back my tears in front of the computer.

Doesn't matter who's kids they are I will never ever understand how people are able to write so disrespectful about children. This is totally inhuman.

And I will also never ever understand how media can acceppt those comments. I don't think in my country would it would be possible to write in that way about a young girl, about children - such comments would be deleted immediately - I hope they would.

Shame on tmz for support pornographic comments about underaged children. This is real child molestation.

Shame on the writers! Shame on the media! The US is a poor country by accepting this! I feel deeply ashamed for you!

First of all, NO, I do not at all whatsoever like Joe Jackson, as he's a dirty old man who's still trying to ' hang onto the gravy train of ANY possible $$$$ he can get his hands on ', BUT, for ALL of you insensitive people out there who are writing in and saying that Michael Jacksons children look like ' retards ', well, guess what ? The majority of people who tend to call others ' retards /retarded; you personally have some VERY BAD issues in your own life, likely are very uneducated and racists. Ever hear of the word K A R M A ? Well, watch what you say / do in this ' short life we have ', as the GOOD you extend unto others shall be returned to you, just as the BAD things you project will ' come back to haunt you '.

TMZ!!!, you guys crack me up. You must want to see what people think about that cause you know that Joe Jackson is always an easy target in the media. let the kids spend Thanksgiving with their WHOLE family. It's called Thanks...giving. And the fact that Michael Jackson is gone should bring them all together. Michael said he forgave his father and still loved him on an interview I saw. It's always good to forgive. There's no time for hating each other cause life is too short to be holding grudges. It eats you inside when all you want to do is hate for the rest of your life. TMZ, you guys need to grow up and stop acting like a bunch of ignorant and stupidass kids, you too Harvey. All you guys do is talk about everybody and surely act like y'all are jealous about them too, but I'm sure you guys are a bunch of hypocrites too. Like I've been saying, none of you are saints and surely NOT perfect, so stop trying to make everybody else look bad to make yourself feel good. LIKE DAMN!!! WHAT IS UP WITH THE IGNORANT HATERS THESE DAYS? PLEASE GUYS, DRINK SOME HATER-AID. YOU REALLY NEED IT. PS, PLEASE GROW UP, I HAVE A 12 YEAR OLD NIECE WHOSE WAY MATURE THAN YOU GUYS, NO THAT'S A SHAME. LIKE DAMN!!

so wrong    

BEWARE, these haters on here are paid trollers, why do you think they're here 24/7, and only on MJ stories, well look at the hits his stories get and the comments.

They're paid on a commission based compensation, here to fight and entice and rally up the MJ FANS, the more comments they get back and keep the story going, the more they're paid. HELLO!

Be warned, you'll wake up tomorrow with 5- 10 spam emails, you comment back to one of these trolls or you open a youtube video or link (i.e., something for Deb, my entire computer crashed the other day, TMZRO too), and your entire computer system will shut down.

Beware people.

Also, all the MJ Death Hoax Videos are all scams too, they're all interlinked and connected to the same domain and administrator.

DUH! This is all a sham and scam! wake up people!

The kids look like they're doing well. I'm glad. And I think Michael would be at peace knowing that the Jacksons are surrounding these children with care and love. No family is perfect, but the kids seem happy being with their cousins, aunts, uncles, grandmother, and grandfather. They have little knowledge of what Joe was like 30 years ago, nor do they probably care. He's not the same person now -- even Michael admitted that. La Toya stated that the kids get a kick out of him, and I'm sure that's true. Despite it all, Michael did love Joe. I do not think he'd be opposed to the kids being around him as long as the kids themselves were ok with it. When Michael left the kids in Katherine's care he knew darn well they'd be exposed to Joe and the rest of the family. He obviously wanted it that way.

As for invasion of privacy, the ironic thing is that the kids are probably less hounded now than they were when they tried to go out with Michael. At least they are free of those awful masks, and photographers snap them from a respectable distance instead of 3 inches from their face. I'm sure they're so used to the cameras by now, they barely notice them. At least they don't have to worry about being trampled as they did before. If one good thing came from Michael's premature death it's that his kids now have a fighting chance to live the rest of their childhood in a more normal environment -- sans masks, sans a rowdy rush of photographers at every turn, and with the ability to go out into society and do normal kid things with their cousins. Michael would be glad about this.

They are beautiful children period. Whenever I see pictures of them, they look like Michael Jackson. Sperm doners step aside and ill willed people too.

Stop kidding yourselves MJ whackos. Blanket looks like nothing like MJ. Remember MJ's original face has been lost for over 26 years and he constantly had work done on it. Blanket is obviously of Latino or Italian descent from either his real father or mother. Maybe both.

MJ would not be glad to not be alive to raise his children the way he wanted them raised. They have no mother and a grandmother who is 79.

Well, I hate to say it, but if Michael wanted to be alive to raise his kids to adulthood then he should've reached out for help and/or accepted the help that some tried to give him when he started needed IV drips to fall asleep every night. The kids may have no mother (at least none who is very interested in them) and a grandmother who is 79, but they also have 8 aunts and uncles, and numerous cousins, some of whom are well into adulthood. Two of their aunts (who are 53 and 43) have no children of their own, so plenty of time to devote. The other aunt (60) has children who are already grown, so again, plenty of time to devote to them. These kids will have plenty of love and support moving forward. THAT'S what Michael would've been happy about, since his prolonged dalliance with such dangerous drugs and unscrupulous people prevented him from being here himself.
