Michael Jackson
is rolling in his grave -- because brother Jermaine Jackson is now encouraging MJ's daughter to spend time with her birth mom.

MJ famously never wanted his kids Prince and Paris to have a relationship with their biological mother Debbie Rowe -- cutting off all contact between Debbie and the children after their divorce in 1999. Debbie gave away all custody rights in 2001.

But Jermaine has reversed Michael's policy -- telling TMZ, it's great that Paris is getting to know her mom.

Prince on the other hand ...

Michael Jackson’s Siblings Learning Arabic To Get Closer To Billionaire Brother-In-Law – Reading Arabic For Dummies

Posted on Apr 24, 2013 @ 3:29AM | By Rick Egusquiza

Michael Jackson’s family members have picked up copies of Arabic for Dummies in order to get closer to Janet Jackson’s Muslim husband Wissam Al Mana, RadarOniline.com is exclusively reporting.

“When Janet married a billionaire businessman from the Middle East some of her family members took notice,” a source close the music clan told Radar. “Jermaine, who converted to Islam years ago, was the first one to welcome his new brother-in-law and was quick to inform the family that the best way to get to know Wissam’s family was to learn their language.

“Jermaine purchased copies of Arabic for Dummies and handed them out to his brothers Jackie, Tito, Marlon and Randy, his sisters LaToya and Rebbie and his parents. While father Joe was all for it Katherine scoffed at the idea at first. She finally came around and agreed to learn a few phrases, but Katherine made it clear, for her, ‘it was just to be polite.’”

Janet, 46, reportedly converted to Islam in order to marry the Qatari-born retail entrepreneur who she secretly wed in 2012.

While the entire family was raised as a Jehovah’s Witness by their devout matriarch, Jermaine, after a trip to Bahrain in 1989, converted to Islam.

Earlier this year Jermaine, 58, legally changed his last name from Jackson to Jacksun, stating “artistic reasons” for the puzzling switch.

Jermaine, who married Halima Rashid, a wealthy Afghan native in 2004, is the ringleader in the family’s “Arabic as a second language” sessions, the source says

“Jermaine already speaks Arabic so he’s become the go to tutor for the others,” adds the source. “Janet thinks it’s hilarious because Wissam speaks perfect English. Jermaine says he has no hidden agenda, he simply wants better communication.”

La Toya Jackson claims she’s looking for love in her new reality show, but a new report claims there’s nothing real about her show and says the 56-year-old is already in a relationship.

“La Toya didn’t have enough material to fill 10 episodes, so she decided to pretend she’s looking for a boyfriend,” an insider told the National Enquirer.

“But she’s been with Jeffre for years. He’s featured on the show as La Toya’s ‘business partner and close friend,’ but everyone who knows them personally knows they’re in a relationship.”

So while La Toya actually has a good thing going with Jeffre Phillips, the series Life with La Toya will show the famous Jackson going on “several ‘dates,’ but they’re not real. Jeffre is going along with it because he wants the show to be a success,” the source said.

To find out more about La Toya’s relationship with her manager and how she plans to pull off the single life on TV, pick up the latest issue of National Enquirer, on newsstands Thursday.

TMZ, stop acting like you know what went on in Michael Jackson's private life. You don't know what Michael and Debbie agreed to do after their divorce. It turned out that Debbie DID NOT sign parental rights over--she wanted to visit the children, but she also wanted Michael to be the custodial parent--something that she said...something that TMZ forgets because TMZ doesn't care about reporting truth.

Michael probably didn't want the mother to be around the kids but that decision was made when he was here I bet if michael knew how the situation right now is going on with these kids he'll be happy to know that she's there for them! They need a parent like a close one that understands them and be close to them don't take that away from them. That's their mother JERMAINE!!!!

He probably told if she gives him some money, he will publicly endorse their relationship. Why don't he just go away.

Nah, I don't think he is rolling in his grave. He would want his kids to have a good life and if being with their mother is what they want- it would be ok with him. After all he's not here and she is. God Bless 'Em.

Ghost of Michael Jackson Tap Dancing In La Toya’s Home, She Says

La Toya Jackson said she can sense her late brother Michael’s ghost tap dancing around her home — seriously.

The 56-year-old sister of pop’s fallen king described feeling M.J.’s presence to Good Day New York anchors Rosanna Scotto and Greg Kelly Wednesday.

“It’s the strangest thing because you feel something like thick around you or behind you and you’re wondering — you don’t see anything, but you feel a presence … it’s very interesting because it is there, it’s definitely there,” La Toya said.

The Ind.-born La Toya, who’s been seen on Celebrity Apprentice and Big Brother UK, said one of her home security guards also noticed the presence, confirming her suspicion.

“When [the security guard] told me I said, ‘You’re kidding!’ That made me want to know even more about hearing someone tap dance over a certain part of the house … well, Michael used to do that every Sunday for two hours.

“We go up there and no one’s up there — just tap dancing. And the dog barks at his room, the window, every single night at the same time … the dog doesn’t even know that that’s Michael’s room, and the security didn’t know. It’s weird!”

La Toya was on to promote her reality show Life with La Toya, which airs Saturdays at 10:30/9:30c p.m. on OWN.
