Diana Ross was listed as a back-up guardian for Michael Jackson’s children if Micheal’s mother , Katherine was unable to care for them. Ross is now ready to sign off on a new custody agreement that lists Katherine and her grandson T.J. Jackson as guardians for joint custody.
According to RadarOnline.com, a source close to the family said:
“Diana has no qualms whatsoever about the new custody agreement, she only wants what is best for the children. Diana knows that the children are old enough to decide who they want to live with and she defers to what they want. While Diana hasn’t been a big part of their lives because she lives on the East Coast, she is very fond of them.”
The family attorney has stated that Janet, Jermaine and Randy are not allowed to visit their mother Katherine’s home in Calabasas. This may stem from allegations that there is security footage showing Janet arguing with Paris Jackson and allegedly calling her “spoiled little b***h”.
The Jackson kids’ former nanny, Grace Rwaramba, weighed in on the madness saying,
“Everyone knows that Michael went to great lengths to protect his children from the public eye. While the use of veils and masks was unconventional, it only highlights how important this issue was to him. He understood, probably better than anyone, that growing up as a public figure, especially in the entertainment industry can be disaster…The recent drama surrounding Michael’s mother, Katherine, the ongoing custody issues and now the public dispute between Paris and Janet is exactly what Michael wanted to protect his children from. These matters have been further complicated by Gladys Knight and others recent and well intentioned comments about Paris. I have great respect and admiration for Mrs. Knight. And while I agree with the spirit of her comments, attacking Paris in public is not the answer.”
Just recently, Diana Ross spoke out saying that the media needs to leave the Jackson children and their family alone to deal with their issues, saying ‘‘all interests are best served if it remains private.’’
