Diana Ross Will Take Custody Of Michael Jackson’s Kids?

When Michael Jackson died in June of 2009, the world wondered who would be left to care for the singer’s three children Paris, Prince Michael, and Blanket. Since his death, it was his mother Katherine Jackson who has been acting as guardian.

But Katherine is 81 years old, how much longer can she care for those kids?

Michael had apparently foreseen this problem and stated in his will that should Katherine be incapable of tending to his brood, that his longtime friend Diana Ross was to be named their legal guardian and take custody of the kids.

From the time of MJ’s passing, Ross has stayed clear of the children prompted speculation that she would not be fulfilling the deceased singers request.

However, RadarOnline claims that they have indeed confirmed that Ms. Ross will be stepping up to the plate and accepting her responsibilities as legal guardian of the Jackson kids.

A source close to the Jackson family tells us that the superstar diva was named in her longtime friend Michael Jackson’s will as guardian of Prince Michael, Paris and Blanket. And even though it was suggested that Ross declined the huge responsibility, that too is bunk, RadarOnline.com has confirmed.

“Diana has made no moves whatsoever not fulfill her role that Michael intended for her,” the source says. “Michael didn’t trust anyone in his family besides, his mother, to raise the children. Michael loved Diana and chose her for a very specific reason,” our source adds.

Katherine Jackson turns 81 on May 4, and it was revealed in court documents recently that she has a live-in caregiver.

“Katherine is a very doting, loving grandmother,” the source added. “She just isn’t getting any younger and that is why Michael named a second guardian.”

An informant in Ross’ entourage said the singer of Upside Down and Endless Love hasn’t been involved in the children’s lives, so far.

“She will step in if there’s an immediate need to do so,” the Ross informant said.

I just hope those kids stay as far away from MJ’s father Joseph as possible. We don’t need any more f-ed up kids in the world.

    Sorry but this article is False and I would say a down right lie based on the terms of the will. Dianna Ross has NO rights at all to the children. It was initially if Katherine could not care for them Dianna Ross was Michael’s choice. But after Katherine took on guardianship and full responsibility Dianna Ross is out of the picture. Once katherine took on the role as guardian is is she who decides who will care for the children if she is unable to. Diana Ross has no further rights. Dianna has not commented or said ANYTHING about taking on that resposibility. Radar online fabricated this story.

    It’s possible that you are correct and that Radar fabricated the story. However, based on what you’ve said about Katherine being unable to care for the children, that’s what it’s referring to. The article does not propose that Diana swoop in and take the kids from Katherine, but rather that she would care for the kids when Katherine is no longer able.
