Willow and Jaden Smith

Mentoring MJ's Kids

5/25/2011 11:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jaden and Willow Smith didn't just bump into MJ's kids on a movie set in L.A. yesterday -- TMZ has learned, it was all set up by Katherine Jackson ... to help nudge her grandchildren in a positive direction.

Sources close to Katherine tell TMZ, she believes the Smith children are prime examples of young success in Hollywood -- both extremely talented and down-to-earth -- and thinks Prince, Paris, and Blanket could learn a lot from them.

According to sources, Katherine wants to surround her grandchildren with role models like Jaden and Willow -- so she set up the meet-and-greet ... and we're told, the kids got along like a house on fire.

Katherine wants Michael's kids to enjoy their childhood -- and is actively encouraging them to become involved in all kinds of activities ... including acting.

Just another shameless attempt to push the talentless Smith kids on the public.

First that G-d awful remake of The Karate Kid, then that talentless little girl and her hair song, now they want to remake "Annie" with her in the title role.

G-d preserve us from stageparents like Will and Jada.

How do you mentor someone when you have received everything handed to you on a silver platter? Spoiled children being handed keys to the kingdom....Do you see Rehab in their future?

Honorable intentions but it seems that would be a quick way to end the kids childhood frivolity. Why on earth would you want a child to work so early in life?

These two sets of kids don't even look like they are interacting with each other. Anyone else notice that. The Jackson kids are grouped together looking at each other, and the Smith's with another child, are cornered together. Just doesn't look to me like they are getting along like a "house on fire". And I agree with poster "how can the younger kids be role models for the older ones". Oh well, none of these people are anywhere near my little corner of the world, and I would have no idea what it's like to live such a way. Just your average American here, I'm no where near their realm of life.

yeah....who exactly says the smith kids are down-to-earth or even talented? they are spoiled rich kids that make it look as though they actually have done hard work to make something of themselves and their careers... they haven't and aren't worth two $#its... yeah Will, ur kids are spoiled worthless lil kids...so nice of you to steer them in the right direction.
and dont even start with MJ's kids, havent they been through enough? get them away from other 'celebs' and give them a fugggin chance to be kids for once.
And on that note, stop taking pictures of these worthless celeb kids, they are not their parents, they have no talent, we dont care about them.

I guess her and Joe are too old to use the "belt" to nudge them like they did with their own kids.

How canMh kids be a positive direction for any ohter kid?
Willow Smith said with Ryan Seacrest that she DIDNOT KNOW her math tables. She did not know multiplication and is ten? or something like that? She said she was always on set or doing something else, she did not have time to catch up with school.

How disappointing of Will Smith!!!

As yes.. Everyone knows that Hollywood kids are the most well balanced children, with such high morals, and selfless natures. A shinning example to which all children should follow.
I'd laugh, but there are real children involved in this explotative mess.

"...examples of young success?"

Yeah right. Only because of their parents. If not, those kids would be gangbanging and smoking crack... instead of talking to aliens and being supported by Scientologist lower rung people.
