Rebbie Jackson to Raise Michael Jackson's Children?

by at . Comments

Sources within the Jackson family inner circle are reportedly saying that if Katherine Jackson, Michael Jackson's mom, gets custody of his kids as per the late singer's will, Michael's big sister Rebbie Jackson will raise the children.

Maureen Reillette "Rebbie" Brown (née Jackson) is 59. She is the eldest of the nine children (Michael was the seventh) of Katherine and Joe Jackson.

She lives in Las Vegas with her husband of 40 (!) years.

Rebbie has always kept a low public profile - she has even been called the "forgotten" member of Jackson family - but privately she has been deeply involved in the lives of Michael's children, Paris, Prince Michael and Blanket.

Rebbie Jackson is currently living with Katherine at the family's Encino home and caring for the kids day-to-day. All three children are said to adore their aunt.

While the Jackson family is deeply divided on issues involving Michael's estate, there is supposedly no argument when it comes to Rebbie caring for the kids.

Whether she eventually becomes the custodial parent in name or not, she will be entrusted with the primary responsibility of raising Michael's three children.

Rebbie Jackson has three grown children, Stacee, 37, Yashi, 31, and Austin, 24. It sounds as if she might be a good person to care for Michael's kids too.

I think Rebbie would be a good parent for the kids, because Janet is a busy person at this time. God bless the whole Jackson family, i really loved Michael, i grow up with the Jackson family,and i will always love Michael and the Jackson family. God bless you and keep you.

I think that would be wonderful. Janet may well be a wonderful, caring and loving aunt, but I don't know if her lifestyle is good for raising kids. Rebbie is settled and married for 40 years. The kids will have a stable home with 2 parents.

I dun really quite care which Jackson family member takes the children (NOTE: Just not the FATHER!!! Joe Jackson). As long as it doesnt fall on the nanny or debie or MJ's doc. So yeah, The childrens just have to stick with the jacksons, not outsiders
