MJ's Kids -- We've Got a UCLA Education!

2/25/2011 10:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson's 3 kids have already had a taste of the college life ... revealing that a UCLA film teacher used to come to their home to conduct private classes ... and even flew to Ireland to help the gang make a movie. 

Michael Jackson's Kids

The kids sat down with "Good Morning America" this morning -- where they also revealed that their favorite school subjects are "gym and lunch."

Still, 14-year-old Prince says he's already thinking about his career ... insisting, "I'm looking at a couple of opportunities in show business ... mostly producing."

In Hollywood, it ain't what ya know ...

Nevertheless, in this interview the children were used to advance the idea. Roberts noted, hilariously, that Prince Jackson, age 14, “is on the board of Heal the World.” What does he want to do? “Help animals who can’t speak for themselves.” (What about those that can?) One day, those poor kids will realize how they were used for this scheme. Where is Margaret Lodise, the court appointed lawyer for these children? How did they allow this to happen.

Whether if they were biological or not, they are still his kids. Would you tell someone that had been adopted that there adoptive parents are not their parents? I'm pretty sue they would disagree. Michael took care of these kids as his own and Michael is all they knew when he was alive. They consider him their father so why isn't that enough? And just for the record, just because black parents may be dark skin, doesn't mean their kids will be dark skin and vise versa. Any BLACK person knows this because it is seen in every black family. Black people come in a rainbow of colors here in the USA. My own mother was living proof of this. Her parents both were dark skin and she came out really, really light skin. And her sister is dark skin.

This makes me proud to be a Bruin alumna :).
Blanket is without question his son - the resemblance is definitely there. I remember what Michael looked like when he was Blanket's age: This boy has the same eyes, eyebrows and
nose. The other two aren't his biological children. There's no resemblance accept that Paris looks like her mother. However, let's remember that Michael was their father in EVERY WAY THAT COUNTS. He was the only parent they've ever known.
God bless those children!

wow    

They're beautiful, well behaved children but MJ is their dad in every way but biological. It irks me that people are so stupid to keep saying he's the biological father. In past interviews MJ always said he wanted to adopt. He didn't want biological children. Watch the interview with Diane Sawyer and see how he reacts when she asks him if he didn't want his own children.
My family is very mixed. My children are very fair like these but you can see the resemblance to their dad and myself. These children do not resemble MJ. I grew up looking at MJ in the Jackson 5 before he changed
himself. I know numerous mixed children and there's no doubt in my mind that MJ is not the biological father. He's the only father they know and he was their father in every way but the sharing of DNA.

glory    

does arnie know that boy is his son?
katherine is using those kids I knew she wasn't going to take them and act like she seriously cared about them, she's not just the one those children need be taken from.
They really shouldn't have been with Micheal in the first place.. how do we know Micheal was sucha great father to those children? how do we know that Michael really loved,cared,for them? its looks like to me that Michael jackson faked the white children to probably try to make him look good.how do we really even know those children even knew micheal? he might of had them being raised by the nanny's over at somebody esles house only going to see them when he wanted.

Thanks for posting..

Yeah, KatherineJ (with Joe the Catfish in tow) didn't waste 1 minute rushing to court for custody of those kiddos...
but of course she bought them some sleeping bags first! (didn't even know them well enough to already have sleeping accomodations for them like MOST grandmothers do)

SHE'S A LIVING BREATHING REAL BITCH FROM HELL.
that's OK....she'll be going back there someday.

But this connection with Howard Mann is something I really don't understand. No, Katherine has certainly not FORCED the kids into PR actions like this interview. That's not the right word – as they don't seem to have a problem with it and even enjoy it. But I'm sure they don't know the story behind. And that's what doesn't seem right to me.

This blog sums it up in relatively few words. I think Katherine is frustrated that everything regarding her income and expenses goes through the estate after a long life of dealing with these things on a personal level with her family - AKA mainly MICHAEL, of course.
She has a hard time accepting the new "regime", which in no way is personal, as she is accustomed to.
I am not condemning her in any way. She is in her eighties, and it is hard for old people to adjust to new cir***stances. It really seems she is doing well with the children - it must be VERY hard for a woman at her age! Having brought up NINE children of her own, partly Randy´s and Jermaine´s kids and now an extra new set of three initially grief stricken children, while she herself was devastated over the loss of her wonderful, beloved son! Katherine is an exceptionally strong woman to be able to deal with all this!!
But I don´t agree with her exposing the kids this way or in this context. They are way too young and thus vulnerable to be giving interviews.
Michael always sheltered his kids from the scrutiny of the public eye - and rightly so. He knew what he was doing. Now, look at the many, many nasty comments here and probably elsewhere too!
Furthermore, they are too young to understand that saying publicly that they want to do this and that when they grow up - and it turns out they WON`T or CAN`T, they will risk feeling like failures.
Blankie is pretty smart - he says NOTHING and hides his action figure with a telling (and funny) expression! What he said with that gesture: "None of YOUR business, lady!" Way to go, Blankie! LOL

Hi moni
Perhaps there's really no story behind it at all. Perhaps the children who are leading normal lives really want to get involved with Michael's legacy. They are growing up and will not just sit behind the scene much longer.
As for Mrs. Jackson and Howard Mann, he cannot be any worse than anyone else in Hollywood trying to earn a living. At least he worked with the family. At least he has not stepped on Michael's mother and disregarded her input as how to chronicle Michael’s legacy since his passing. Who knows, maybe he's turned over a new leaf. Maybe he's the only person with connections that was willing to work with her to publish her book etc and not take the majority of the proceeds for himself.
All this "approval by the estate" is only business. It’s their job to oversee the estate and to ensure that it generates money. The executors are not concerned about people they are concerned about the bottom line which is to generate a positive cash flow. If Howard Mann and Mrs. Jackson were working with or for the estate, Branca and McClain would not have fired off a single letter to cease and desist.
At least Mr. Mann has not partnered up with the very company Michael grew to despise. At least IMO the products endorsed by Michael's family especially his mother come from the heart. There's nothing wrong with the family making money. No one is working for free. It’s not a crime for Branca and McClain to pay themselves from the estate. They just need to tell their media bandits and pundits to back off the kids and their extended family. It’s done!
Mrs. Jackson is the matriarch of a show business family. The history of the Jacksons is a national treasure....not branca/mcclain.
I think Mrs. Jackson has held her head high despite all the venom spewed out daily against her and her family. A lesser woman would have washed her hands of the whole thing long, long, long time ago. Mrs. Jackson is resilient. I know Michael is proud of the way she has handled the harsh criticism, mocking, threats, all while raising his children to have solid focused career paths of their choosing. Michael told his children that they did not have to be a performer. They could choose whatever they wanted. I think it was Paris who said during the Bashir interview that she wanted to dance and sing like her daddy Michael.

You are lame. Anyone who accuses someone of spending too much time on TMZ is "SPENDING TO MUCH TIME ON TMZ" themselves!!!! The hateration is so simple. I know how to multi-task! I can work fulltime, and everything in between plus check off the hate against Michael and his family. After the trial I will never return to TMZ. You on the other hand will be right here riding the hamster wheel to nowhere all about nothing!!! what else you got?

I hate hypocrisy    

Missy sorry but you´re the one who needs to get the eyes checked. Even Blanket doesn´t look like Michael that much like many people believes. It´s just a trick because of his long dark air and his eyes. If the kids had that "strong Jackson features" you always talk, everyone would be able to see that.
I know very well black people can produce white kids. But it´s very rare in one and all the three are white.
Look the others Jackson´s grandchildren. Even the biracial ones have a black appearance. Do you believe that Michael was so lucky he produced just kids with white skin? Please Missy open your eyes.
Look Lionel Richie´s daughter. She has white skin and light hair but someone with eyes can see she´s biracial.

Even Tom Mesereau implied they´re not his biological children, when he he had two white kids and an hispanic. It´s like he said that they haven´t one drop of black blood on them.
Tom Mesereau defended Michael splendidly, he always liked him. What necessity had Tom to lie?!

I´ve noticed you´re always blabing the same thing in posts about the kids. Tell me, if you are so right they´re his biological kids, why are you always repeating the same thing,over and over again? When someone is right about something there´s no need to repeat always the same thing. When you do that it´s like you´re insecure and you need to prove to yourself that it´s true.

So sorry Missy but you´re just insecure and confused.
Be careful what you believe. You can have a big, big disillusion.

Michael created them. That alone makes him their father. Why is their genetics so important to you?
