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.

so wrong    

TMZ is full of BS. I don't see any of MJ's kids in this video, period, nor does anyone else.

Guess their Tiger Woods' stories are burning out so they had to pull some MJ stuff up.

Both these stories are total lies! F@ck off TMZ, do some fact checking. Previous MJ story about the leased house, total lie, that's not even the name of the real esate agent who leased the house to Mike.

Liars! Get real!

it's a cute video, boys will be boys (my younger boy cousins do the same, just filming/taking pics- boys just want to be cool:) and they look like they're having fun hanging together.

Just because it's the Jacksons, is that why ppl always automatically want to say that it's not normal? As if everyone has the same culture/religion/belief! Jeez, just relax about it.

I'm not rich at all, but I'm realistic enough to realize there'll always be rich people, middle class and the poor. One person having $ isn't justification that you should to.

Jehovah's Witnesses reject all holidays even benign Mother's day,exception being the Lord's evening meal also called the Last Supper or Good Friday.

WHY-Jehovah’s Witnesses don’t do Thanksgiving,and other holidays.

I was born Jehovah’s Witness 1957 3rd generation,we didn’t celebrate Christmas.

The reason JW’s don’t do Christmas is because their Watchtower leaders say so,the holiday has pagan aspects to it and by rejecting it the Watchtower appears “pure”.
This “demand for purity” is one of the 8 marks of a cult.NOW the Watchtower can use this purity diversion to distract from their own false dogmas.

The Watchtower leaders want us to be 'different' for the sake of being different.Jehovah's Witnesses are not 'happier' and are just as dysfunctional as families who do holidays.
Jesus was not born on Dec 25th,but he also did not have his second coming in the month of October 1914,which is the core doctrine of the Watchtower religion.


Santa Claus is a fairy tale and so is Watchtower 1914 dogma.

I am sorry for MJ's kids. If their father were alive, they wouldn't spend 5 mins with these family members! The Jackson family has alienated them from the kids they used to spend time with - Mark Lester's kids, Gregory Peck's grandkids, etc. Now they are with kids whose parents want to make sure they are all in on the inheritance!! Those cousins are vying(with instruction from the fam)for 'most favorite cuz" in order to establish themselves as close as poss to MJ's money. Next they'll be marrying each other! It wouldn't surprise me. THE KIDS SHOULS HAVE BEEN LEFT WITH DIANA OR KLINE. The cousins need to get a good education including college to ensure that they can support themselves as adults.

Spoiled rich kids that will NEVER amount to anything or make any worth while contribution to society except spend massive amounts of money that will boost profits for a company here and there.

They'll NEVER work or know what life is really like. Their lives will be empty and lonely filled with no joy...only the joy that money can buy and that is only masked joy.

Play your basketball in your hotel room...I'm out mingling with society playing with peers that spark into lasting friendships.

I'm good...do what you do.

Harvey .. I did not know about Writer's Guild being where Bev. Center is . thought all of LaCienega was RESTAURANT ROW when I came out in early 60s..BUT... Having worked in the film biz for 40+ years .. there still is the 30 mile zone .. IF a location is MORE than 30 miles away from where they would report . they go to the studio and are BUSSED to the location... course the BIG stars have their motorhomes picking them up 30 miles or 1 mile .. I always wondered what TMZ meant too . never asked .but as I said .. A cast or crew member CAN go as far as 30 miles from whatever studio .. IF it is more than 30 miles . they report to Univ. WB or whatever studio and are bussed to 'the location' . NOW, if we are talking LONE PINE . then everyone would be there overnight . depends how much OVER the 30 miles zone it is . usually it is a day trip to/from .. IF you drive to location (less than the 30) you get Drive to money .. I did work in AFTRA Casting in '62 .. saw tons of contracts . never knew about writers guild being 'the spot' .. As I said .that was ALL Restaurant Row when I came out here in '62 ..

Who is paying this $250000 per night charge ?? Obviously it's Michael who's STILL paying for all his greedy parasitic siblings, nephews etc. The money should be for Michael's children but it looks like the Jacksons are rapidly eating their way into the children's inheritance.
BY THE WAY....... WHEN IS MURRAY THE MURDERER GOING TO ARRESTED ???
STOP DELAYING. ARREST HIM NOW!!!!!!!

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE IN NOT HAVING THANKSGIVING ON THANKSGIVING, BUT HAVING IT A FEW DAYS EARLIER OR LATER. I HAVE A CO-WORKER WHO IS A WITNESS DOESN'T PITCH IN ON DEPT BIRTHDAY PARTIES, BUT IF YOU HAND HER A PLATE OF FOOD OR CAKE SHE WILL CHOW DOWN IN NO TIME.
