La Toya to Family

Stop Fighting In Public!

EXCLUSIVE

0726_latoya_jackson
La Toya Jackson is a conscientious objector ... REFUSING to take part in the Jackson media war ... because she believes all of the PUBLIC feuding is damaging the family name.

La Toya -- who's not exactly shy when it comes to publicity -- has been noticeably absent from the media blitz surrounding Michael Jackson's kids and the MJ Estate.

We're told La Toya feels VERY STRONGLY that the most effective way to solve the family problems are NOT to attack each other in public ... but rather hash things out quietly ... and respectfully ... in private.

So whose side is she on? Sources say she's definitely NOT aligned with Janet, Randy, Jermaine and Rebbie ... and wasn't thrilled to see them camera-whoring all over TV this week.

Bottom line -- we're told La Toya wants what's best for Michael's kids ... and feels the quicker the family can stop making a public spectacle of themselves ... the better off the kids will be.

If she doesn't want to take part in the media war, why is she flapping her gums?

Diana Ross should be the court appointed person for the Michael Jackson children - she would not allow the family to steal from his estate and she would treat the children with dignity like Michael would wish. The Grandmother can be manipulated by the Jackson family and it is my personal opinion that there is a possibility they could be abused after this recent fiasco. Also, I am certain that the family has been allowed to get money from Michael Jackson' s estate due to the fact that she is subject to manipulation. She turned her back on the Father's abuse and she continues to let the family manipulate. Hope the courts will protect the chidren by awarding Diana Ross Custody of the Michael Jackson children.

I remember Latoya from many years ago. The large jacuzzi filled with lime jello, the excessive rum & coke flowing all night, Iron Butterfly on the radio, the empty 36 pack of trojans that had been full only 10 hours earlier, God calling down from heaven "quit calling my name young lady...you're keeping me up and tomorrow is a work day for me!"...ah, yes...I remember it well.

I gave that lime jello to the skidrow soup kitchen the next day. Latoya and I laughed and laughed...it was even more fun than playing "got your nose" with Michael.

Either La Toya is secretly a genius and the last 20 year long ditzy act has been just that - an act, or she is truly cunning and trying to get in good on the side she sees as the winning side - TJ and the kids. Only time will tell...

When LaToya Jackson is the voice of reason, it's time to reevaluate the situation.
