Katherine Jackson & MJ's Kids

Show Up for 'Unity' Tour

Despite Family Brawl

EXCLUSIVE

0728_kathering_jackson_tmz_videoDespite a public family showdown, Katherine Jackson and Michael Jackson's three kids all showed up at the Jackson Brothers' "Unity Tour" ... even though one of the members, Jermaine Jackson, is actively trying to overthrow the MJ estate.

TMZ obtained footage of Katherine arriving at the concert in Saratoga, CA last night (to a small round of applause from the crowd) where Marlon, Tito, Jackie and Jermaine are continuing their tour, despite the current family rift.

Katherine wasn't there alone ... Prince, Paris and Blanket tagged along with their grams -- who just last week was reported missing after spending a week in Arizona with other members of the Jackson clan.

During the concert, Jermaine -- who is on opposite sides of the feud than his band mate brothers -- played a whole set by himself ... singing several songs as a solo act.

We're told MJ's kids, who were watching from the crowd, didn't appear to be having that much fun.

Awkwaaaaaard.

Just Me.    

I work at The Winery in Saratoga. We were taking bets all week whether they would even show up. The show was hideous, the music was dreadful, and it was probably the all-time lowest in attendance ever. They were hawking Jackson 5 T-Shirts with Michael on them, just to make a buck. Like who's going to buy a shirt with just Jermaine or Tito's picture on it?? This "family" has no shame.

Curious...I must of missed something but why are MJs kids cracker white anyway? was he not proud of his black heritage? i'd be,i'm sure they kinda wonder what the hell is going to happen in the future for them.
why doesnt anybody ask the bold ? ...was he ashamed for being black or did he want his so called children to not go thru what he went thru as a child? we hope gramama lives to be 125 years old people.

YO heads up Harvey, DEBBIE ROWE speaks up SLACKERS:

http://globalgrind.com/news/-debbie-rowe-speaks-out-concern-custody-katherine-paris-prince-jackson-details

We haven't heard much from the biological mother of Michael Jackson's eldest kids, Paris and Prince, but with all the custody drama that has emerged Debbie Rowe has decided to voice her concerns.

Reportedly Debbie wishes Katherine Jackson would consult with her before making any changes to the agreement made before MJ died.

It has already been determined that the guardianship of the children will temporarily be given to TJ Jackson, the pop king's nephew.

According to the Daily News:

"Debbie would like Katherine to consult her before making any changes to the agreement they worked out together after Michael died," the source said. "This would set up a whole different dynamic. She needs to see more details."

Rowe raced back to southern California from a horse show last weekend when she heard family members reported Katherine missing, the source said.

While most have thought the 51 year old has had no involvment with the kids at all the site reports:

Though she handed Michael full custody of son Prince Michael, now 15, and daughter Paris, now 14, when they divorced in 1999, and didn't intervene after his death, Rowe has seen the kids on more than one occasion in the last three years, the source said.

The source continues:

"As long as Katherine is still actively involved (with the kids), there shouldn't be a problem. But they never agreed to let TJ be a decision maker. (Rowe) knows TJ from when he was little. She knows he's close to the kids. But she might ask for more custodial responsibility if he's making decisions she doesn't agree with,"

And the saga continues....

---------------------------------

The BeST thing this 'fam' is at is redefines "seriously F*CKED up" every single day they breathe, now got Paris into it she DEF a "Jackson hood clan member" now whether bio or not ... 14, better late then never they figure. Spoiled little bitch that she is needs to trade in her ACTING coach she's a slippin' BLENDING acting roles now... she threatened to go on blast and RAISE the hell she did when she was told NO threatening them ALL then DID IT, causing all this BS cuz KJ had Janet Rebbie at al barring the spoiled bitch from wrecking her PEACE for a damn week. Now she's all into showing up at this 'show' all UNITED now. "SHE WINS hahahaha" ! That letter have NOTHING to do with Paris mission of CONTROLLING KJ. Two totally separate issues but she sure knew how to bounce it off that... and Prince a damn mess all 'don't know if he was hacked or not' but Paris know huh... LOL

Back into her 'all about my sweet g'ma' bs ACTING role. "Don't look to happy to be at the concert." Guess that's why she put the pic up on her twitter, huh. Kidding NO ONE but idiots Paris. Thank God for them right!

If Janet didn't slap the nasty disrespect outta that nasty disrespectful mouth back to when she knew better cuz her Daddy sure as hell wouldn't have put up with it, she damn well should have, bet it's killing her she didn't after tonight if not before!

Janet need to get Tyler Perry MEDEA on the scene! Give custody to MADEA, go ahead threaten HER "AfricanT AmericanT" azz let alone cuss her out, let alone THINK you're going to do ANY blasting on the net and cause all the drama you do you disrespecting your DADDY to begin with let alone Janet you spoiled little bitch PARIS she don't care! YOUR **** be straightened OUT and flyin right faster then you can dial 911, hell she'll dial it for ya when she's done with ya AHAHAHAHA!

To hell with any of them including BS 'concerned' Debbie Rowe another sniffed the possibility of pulling rank money grabbing fake ass 'concerned' about the kids she SOLD to their daddy! MEDEA straighten ALL y'all out like needed to be done AGES ago!

Janet, Gladys and more of us then NOT - "TEAM MADEA" !!!!

Hmmm...it seems to me that if Katherine Jackson is acting on her own will she does not deserve to be a guardian to those kids - reason being conflict of interest! Even if she wanted to she she cannot as she is being manipulated, controlled, brainwashed and may I even say abused by her own children. She will always put her children and their needs/wants before MJ's kids as she is their mother. After seeing her actions over the last 2 weeks I think it wise that the jude appoint an independent person NO JACKSON as their guardian. I am not saying she doesn't love the kids but not more than over own and she is not strong enough to manage Randy, Jermaine, Janet and Rebbie.
Note to the judge give this independent person all the funds to dispense with and run the household and see who will be willing to act as guardian for the kids without getting the money directly. That way it will be out of love for the kids and not for the money.
