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.

I think no matter if they don't want to go somewhere, they're not going to let their grandma out of their sight

You didn't think they'd let a chance for publicity pass them by, did you?

And for pete's sake would you stop calling hte youngest one "Blanket". He does have a name besides the dehumanizing nickname his pedodad stuck him with.

Yes, keep it together family. So many want the power and money to stay in the hands of certain people who NEVER had Michael Jackson's best interest at heart. John Branca, AEG, Sony/ATV don't and didn't give a damn about Michael Joseph Jackson! Read that AEG contract! The brother didn't have a chance. And now Branca has Sony/ATV's interest at the top of his list. Hopefully these kids will learn about the business side of the entertainment business and not let the executors have but so much control. Milking Michael even in death!

If Granny had to leave the 3 kids for a week just to get some rest I wonder how she could travel and stay up late to go to this concert, She was just told she has high blood pressure and she needed rest and no phones for a week.

Wow, this is one strange family. What is this, damage control? Grandma convincing the kids that all is well and THEY should be ashamed?

This is definitely a PR stunt to quiet all the nastiness that occurred this week. Mrs. Jackson may secretly be breathing a sigh of relief because she can now share custody with TJ. However, she needs it to look like the whole family is united now and that all talk of "kidnapping" is incorrect. This is all an attempt to keep Janet, Jermaine and Randy from being questioned by the police.

I notice that Janet hasn't been making any statements since this whole thiing has gone out of control. I'm sure she's sitting down with her PR people right now trying to figure out how to repair her image. She should have taken a page out of Michael's book and separated herself from that whole dysfunctional Jackson mess. Her relationship with that family is about to become very different -- if she's smart.

Wow! All I can say is she was too ill to travel back home from AZ to CA, which took 12 hours. I think this even makes her SPA rest look even more bizarre. Travel in NoCal is about the same distance as L.A. to AZ.

Even if there wasn't a family feud I doubt the kids would have been having much fun. Only two members of their family have any real talent, Janet and their Dad. When your father is one of the greatest pop stars of all time why would you want to see his "also ran" brothers.
