Jackson Kids Had a Baller Thanksgiving

12/9/2009 7:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The Jackson family didn't spend Thanksgiving eating stuffing -- instead MJ's kids spent the holiday stuffing a basketball into a hoop in a $25,000-per-night super suite at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas.



A member of the fam posted footage of the night on YouTube, showing Prince playing around with Randy and Jermaine Jackson's kids in the biggest hotel suite we've ever seen -- complete with its own basketball court.

As Jehovah's Witnesses, the Jackson family doesn't celebrate Thanksgiving in the traditional sense. Instead, we're told the Jacksons had a big family dinner a few days before the holiday.

Who's paying for this? I know the kids were with Joe Cola in Las Vegas. It worries me that Joe Cola will get his nasty paws into those kids and suck their money dry. Somehow. Some way. I sure hope the administrators of Michael's estate control this. It's for sure Katherine isn't going to!

Amazing, isn't it?

MJ worked hard for what he had....Jermaine and Randy's kids, no offense, are living of off MJs hard work. Sickening.

Tired of injustice. No matter what anyone says about mj, 95% BS, I will be the last fan standing that thinks he is special and good. Just look at his sweet face and the videos on u tube. I can't help but fall in love with the guy. HOT! No one can ever take that way from me. I will not buy into their lies either!

Every time they show videos of Michael Jackson's children the videos are always poor quality. I wonder why?

IF MICHAEL WAS STILL ALIVE HIS CHILDREN WOULD NOT BE POSTED ON YOU TUBE AT ALL IF THIS WAS ONE OF HIS SONS. JERMAINE IS GREEDY AND SEEMS LIKE HIS CHILDREN ARE TOO.WOULDN'T TRUST HIM NO FURTHER THAN YOU COULD THROW HIM. HE REMINDS ME OF JOE JACKSON IN GETTING HIS WAY. SOME OF THE OTHER BROTHERS ARE GETTING TO BE THE SAME WAY. THAT'S PROBABLY WHY MICHAEL DIDN'T LEAVE THEM ANY MONEY. IF THEY ARE LIVING OFF MICHAEL'S KIDS INHERITANCE KATHERINE OUGHT TO BE ASHAME OF HERSELF FOR LETTING IT HAPPEN AND THE REST OF THE FAMILY NEEDS TO GET A JOB. MICHAEL LEFT THIS MONEY FOR HIS CHILDREN NOT FOR ALL THE OTHERS TO LIVE OFF OF AND TAKE ADVANTAGE OF HIS CHILDREN. GOD TOOK THE WRONG ONE IN THIS FAMILY. MICHAEL SHOULD STILL BE HERE FOR HIS CHILDREN SO HE COULD PROTECT THEM FROM FAMILY MEMBERS AND OTHERS. GOING TO BE INTERESTING TO SEE WHO REALLY IS INVOLVED BESIDES THE DOCTOR OR DOCTORS IN MICHAEL'S DEATH. GREED AND JEALOUSY WILL MAKE AN INIDIVIDUAL DO A LOT OF THINGS TO GET WHAT THEY WANT OUT OF IT. PRAYING FOR MICHAEL'S CHILDREN BECAUSE THEY ARE GOING TO NEED IT TO PROTECT THEM FROM EVERYBODY.

Good for them. As long as their happy. Besides, because of Michael, they already know that there's way more to life than money. Love has already been ingrained in them.

No way on earth would Jermaine or Randy afford to pay for this luxury, so unless they were allowed to use it free of charge, it can only be coming out of MJ3's inheritance, not Katherine's. Damn disgrace. Katherine and the other leeches should hang their heads in shame. They bled Michael and now his kids.

What a bunch of hypocrites! JW don't recognize Thanksgiving BUT have
a big meal and family get together a couple of days before the actual
Thanksgiving Day! BS. They don't recognize birthdays BUT have a
designated "Katherines Day" (same thing as a B-Day in my book or a
Mothers Day) I guess since Rebbie is also JW there is a Rebbies Day.
BS. To me that's hypocritical....have your cake and eat it also.
(don't recognize the holidays or special days and just rename them
something else and celebrate the very same occasion)....roflmfao

Bunch of BS.

And anybody...even a billionaire..who will spend $25,000. (or even
more...this is a cheap suite) a night is a total idiot and stupid.

Hope MJs children had a good holiday though even in the company that
they had to keep.

MJ LOVED THE WORLD WITH ALL HIS HEART, it was an UNCONDITIONAL LOVE and he really wanted to HEAL IT, STOP WARS and DESTRUCTION and have people find a common ground IN LOVE and GOODNESS and SHARING !

He was a great man.

People he cared for abused his trust & deceived him, his father abused him verbally and physically; and, worst of all the media/press raped and stripped him of his dignity publicly and hounded him mercilessly.

And through it all he SMILED!

I wonder how many of us would withstand the same introspection into our lives and how we would handle the pain. Before we cast stones at MJ, we should imagine ourselves in his life and ask ourselves how would we manage it?

Only THOSE WITH NO SIN CAN JUDGE him, not us.


Michael, you were too good for this world, for the people here, for the decadence of the community around us. You are finally up with the angels, where you belong, may you RIP ! We will do our best to CARRY ON YOUR LOVE and SELFLESSNESS and teach it to our little ones
