As most people know, Diana Ross is the godmother of Michael Jackson’s kids. In his Will, he named her as their guardian should anything happen to his mother, Katherine Jackson.
Well after the whole “Katherine Jackson is missing” public Jackson family fiasco that lasted for nearly two days, it’s clear that the 82-year-old matriarch’s death could mean utter chaos for MJ’s kids.
Can the kids count on their godmother to take custody of them if something happens to their grandmother and their temporary guardian T.J.?
During a visit to the Calabasas home last week, Diana Ross, made it clear she would step in if necessary, and made Paris promise to call her “no matter what.”
“Yes, Miss Ross. I will,” Paris replied, according to the source.
The diva left a clear message to the family. “Mess with Michael’s kids, and you’re messing with her,” the source said.
During the powwow, Ross held Katherine Jackson’s hand, looked into her eyes and asked her if the family had made it too difficult for the grandma to handle guardianship.
Katherine told Ross she could handle it, and the two embraced.
While Ross is quite fond of Jackson’s children, friends say she feels strongly that they belong with his immediate family.
“Diana has no intention of taking those kids,” said a source close to Ross. “She has her own life on the East Coast and wouldn’t want to uproot them to come live there. That wouldn’t be fair to anyone, particularly those kids.”
Both reports agreed that 68-year-old legend was surprised about the Will and Michael’s wishes that she take care of the children in the event of his mother’s death. Others are saying that she has to sign off on the proposed joint custody agreement between Katherine and T.J.
What is Diana herself saying regarding the custody issues and whether or not she’ll assume custody if the need arises?
”All interests are best served if it remains private.”
Well, we don’t disagree with that sentiment, but it’s the Jackson’s; therefore, nothing is private. They certainly see to that.
What do you think about Diana Ross possibly assuming custody of MJ’s kids?
