you must have a miserable life and I kinda feel sorry for you. A person who gets a kick out of hating and verbally assualting children obviously got issues - serious issues, in fact you should probably seek help.

Don't waste your time wondering cause they have never been molested like yourself, just do not try to reflect your own life on others. MJ's children are way, way out of your league, just think about your own family and get some counseling.

If true, this is very exciting. I wish them only the best. Hopefully, the camera won't even go near Jermaine. Of course, that's not likely. He'll probably walk on stage with them. He cannot stay out of the limelight.

BTW, that eBay seller still has Michael's photo for the skin-lightening cream. I'm going to contact them again. They say it's against their rules to have a photo of a celebrity without permission. No doubt that lady doesn't have the Estate's permission.

Poor Michael he was accused of vile things and acquitted of all, but just by reading all the comments here I found so many disturbed and sexually abused people, expressing their inner feelings of pedophilia and murder. My guess is that we have to be very careful with the people we interact here with, they must be behind bars already or just waiting to strike!

Joe says he's not attending the Grammys. I don't believe wild horses couldn't keep him away.

"While Katherine Jackson -- Michael's mother -- is expected to attend, Joe Jackson -- his father -- decided not to go because of his anger over the behind-the-scenes talks that led to agreement to have the children accept the award, family sources said.

The decision came just this week, after Katherine Jackson, the legal guardian of the children, complained to Grammy producers that no family members had been invited, the Jackson sources said.

Two sources in the family said that she was initially told by producers that the estate's special administrators would decide who would take part in the Jackson tribute.

"Can you believe this crap?" one source quoted Joe Jackson as saying when he heard that.

The Grammy producers have not responded to a CNN request for comment.

A spokesman for the estate administrators said the matter was for Grammy producers to decide.

"Why is a stranger making family decisions?" asked Oxman, the lawyer who is representing Michael Jackson's father in a legal battle with the administrators.

Oxman said those administrators have disconnected the Jackson family from any decisions involving Michael Jackson's legacy."

If this is something Oxman and Joe allege, chances are it's not true.

Obviously meant to say: I don't believe wild horses COULD keep him away.

For the ones on here who say these children don't belong to Michael, why don't you comment on Brad and Angies kids or Madonnas or others who are adopted? It's a real shame when you have to worry about Michaels children accepting an award for their dead father because of the rude and vulger comments.

Why does joe have to talk about this in the first place? i hope he is not behind the idea of exposing the children. I have worked in the TV industry for years, and participation in such events is the result of a deal between the producers of the show and in this case the jackson family, so most likely the organizers wanted the kids to appear because it will draw audeince and offered a sum of money. Looks like the jacksons said yes. I wonder in whos pockets the paycheck will go.
