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.

Majestik, I agree that Grace Rwaramba is the person who knows the children the best of all people on this planet, she did take care of the children from the day they were born and eleven years forward; but actually it was Michael who fired her about a year prior to his death, not sure why, but allegedly because he thought the children were getting too close to her (she had them call her mommy for instance.) It is awful to remove the only mother figure they HAD.
Obviously I do not know the whole story, but Michael´s children supposedly begged to see her after their father´s death, and she was re-hired by Katherine.
However, something went wrong. I think it was the taser gun incident aimed at Blanket (by one of Jermaine´s kids) that made Grace call the authorities, and BAM, she was out!

As I said, I don´t know the details, and some of what I write here may be off, but one thing is for sure, the pictures of little Blanket clinging to her, and her way of holding him looked like a mother and a son who loved each other. It is so heartbreaking - all of it.
And yes, POOR, POOR kids! I don´t care one bit about the money they have, their lives are a big old MESS, and no kids deserve to go through what they have been through, and what they are still going through!

Katherine seems pretty healthy and energetic. A far different picture from what Janet, Jermaine Randy and Rebie were trying to paint for the last two weeks. Nope. Doesn't look like a woman that was facing a death sentence if Janet and company had allowed her to receive a phone call from those kids.

The Jackson family should be ashamed of themselves now I can understand why Michael Jackson Was so protective regarding his children and now I can also see why he did not leave his brothers or sisters any money they should all be ashamed Michael would be hurt and angry if he were alive seeing how his own family is treating his children.

Debbie Rowe sold her children so she could purchase a farm shed rather raise horses and cows

I think the kids are afraid now to let Katherine out of their sight. They are guarding Katherine in case uncles and unties try to kidnap grandma again.

Now the MJ3 are the official Katherine Jackson Guardian.

This is so crappy and sad. I'm sorry for Prince, Paris, & Blanket and the many years of bull they have ahead. They should consider emancipation when they are old enough, then trust the adult(s) they chose themselves. It won't be easy for them no matter what.

And how exactly will that help Prince to begin living his life as an adult?
I don't understand the opposition to these kids representing their father. For one, it gives them a sense of identity, and to continue, is a way of honoring their father and giving them an awareness of family. Like it or not, this IS their family!

So many people fighting for that money! How much do you want to bet all that money is going to wind up in the hands of Debbie Rowe!

And the way I see it, Debbie Rowe is the least person that should be involved. She knew what the deal was when she agreed to have kids for Michael. She received a lump sum of several million dollars for giving up her rights as a mother, and when they divorced, she had a very juicy pension every month. When Michael died, she was all over the news wanting to take the kids, out of concern?? no. She knew damn well that the only thing that breaks a legal contract between two people (in this case), is the death of one of the parties, therefore, her juicy monthly pension would stop. Katherine and The Michael Jackson estate had to agree to honor the deal Michael and her had, and in exchange she would lay off!
Now, she's concern about "her" kids, guess what: She can only claim the first two, she's not Blanket's mother, and I doubt very much the court will split those children!
