Michael Jackson’s three children are currently living with his mother, Katherine Jackson – she has temporary custody until the courts make a decision. And while it looks like she will ultimately get full custody of the kids, another woman may be the one physically raising Prince, 12, Paris, 11, and Blanket, 7: Michael’s older sister, Rebbie Jackson.
Multiple sources in the Jackson family tell us even if Katherine Jackson gets custody of Michael Jackson’s kids, Michael’s big sister Rebbie Jackson will raise the children.
The 59-year-old singer, who shares a home in Las Vegas with her hubby of over 20 years, has kept a low public profile, but privately she has been deeply involved in the lives of Michael’s children.
We’re told Rebbie is currently living with Katherine at the family’s Encino home and is caring for the kids day-to-day. As for the kids … they all adore her.
Although the family is divided on many issues involving Michael’s estate, we’re told there’s no argument when it comes to Rebbie caring for the kids. Whether she eventually becomes the custodial parent in name or not, she will end up with the primary responsibility of raising Michael’s three children.
Rebbie Jackson seems like a good choice. Katherine Jackson is almost 80, and it’s going to be harder to look after three growing children as she ages. Having Rebbie step up, might be the best option! There were reports that Janet Jackson may raise the kids, and she would be a good choice as well.
