Michael Jackson went to such extremes to hide his children from the public, it seems shocking they're doing a reality TV series -- but Prince, Paris and Blanket are only doing what they want to do ... according to their cousins.
TJ Jackson and his brothers Taryll and Taj joined us on TMZ Live to talk about "The Jacksons: Next Generation." TJ has a unique perspective on how Michael's kids are raised ... since he was named their legal co-guardian a few years ago.
Tito's sons revealed why their younger cousins were starting to feel trapped by their secluded lifestyle -- and it sounds like the Lifetime docuseries is giving them a chance to turn that around.
Check it out ... TJ seems wise beyond his 37 years, and talks about wanting to make his uncle MJ proud.
Momma Dee can breathe a sigh of relief ... because she won't be charged for allegedly skipping out on a $500 restaurant bill.
The "Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta" star called into TMZ Live to tell her side of the story -- that she got stuck with another party's check after a trip to the bathroom, and was wrongfully arrested.
The Milwaukee D.A.'s office saw it Dee's way, because they declined to prosecute based on lack of evidence.
The lesson here: Don't mess with Momma Dee.
