Seeing as the other sibling are touring and trying to make a living entertaining, I think they really wanted control of the kids so they could use the children in their shows. That way THEY would be making money off of the kids.
Maybe they know that fighting the will is a lost cause and they are on to the next scam which is exploiting the kids for profit and controlling them. They could make the kids part of their shows. They would make money as "managers", partners, off of merchandise, underhanded deals, etc.
The siblings feel entitled to Michael's money (as evidenced by their court battles as well as the fact that two of his brothers wanted Michael's estate to pay THEIR child support for their kids. They resent the fact that MJ's kids have not worked for the money they have which is why they consider them "spoiled".
Joe and KJ's kids had to work during childhood to support the family so perhaps the Janet, Randy, etc, now think that the new generation should support THEM, just as they supported their elders.
I guess the Jackson siblings feel that without them, that MJ would have never had a career. Bitter grapes have left a lasting resentment in them. MJ is dead and he is still more popular and makes more money that they do.
I don't think the siblings really see MJl's kids as "Jacksons". Honestly I wonder if they are biologically MJs kids. I'm not saying that in any ugly way at all, just thinking that perhaps he didn't want his children to have the same genes as his screwed up family. Maybe he preferred that they not be biologically related to his family. Seriously.
OT but I know I would prefer that my child not have the same genes as my family. I have 2 cousins who have chosen not to have children because my mothers side of the family is so screwed up. Also,Mj had vitiligo, which does have some genetic component. Perhaps he did not wish to take that chance on passing it to a child of his.
But there is no doubt that MJ was 100% their father in the ways that matter. He nurtured and protected his kids and never exploited them or abused them. he made sure their childhood was nothing like his. I think he (much like me) was able to make right all of the wrongs against him from his childhood by having his own kids and making sure that their childhood was everything a childhood should be.
It is only after his death that I am truly understanding Michael, what he went thru and what his children meant to him. I can see that he was open with his children about the things that went wrong in his childhood, just as I did with my child. Thank goodness he did that because now they are essentially on their own emotionally with just each other to trust.
I'm sure they love KJ but KJ is being manipulated and exploited an is vulnerable to that because that's how her life has always been.
i feel for these kids because they have a lifetime ahead of them full of people who are just itching to exploit them or get at their money.
THANK YOU!!! I agree with everything you said. Very well expressed and well thought out. The Jackson sibs are bitter and angry because they see these 'children' of Michaels getting all of the $$$ and all of the popularity and the world interest. And on top of all that, they look nothing like any of the other Jacksons, so it angers them even more, imo. These kids need to build some big protective barriers around themselves because it is only going to get worse, imo.
