    Default Joe Jackson Wants Michael's Kids to Tour as 'Jackson 3'

    Michael Jackson's father, Joe Jackson, is lining up the King of Pop's children for a world tour as The Jackson Three — despite family members accusing him of trying to "exploit them like Jacko."

    Former Jackson Five manager Joe is said to have approached Prince Michael, 12, Paris, 11, and seven-year old Prince Michael II — known as Blanket — to hit the stage next year.

    But one of Jacko's familymembers is said to be "livid" at the scheme, which will add fuel to the bitter custody battle for the youngsters.

    Jackson’s biographer Ian Halperin said yesterday: "Joe wants the children to go on a world tour in 2010. He has also already offered recording contracts to two of Michael’s kids. Now he is talking about getting them the world’s best backing band and taking them on tour as The Jackson Three."

    Halperin said yesterday his source for the allegations is extremely close to the family and may soon speak out publicly — out of concern for the future of the youngsters.

    He told The Sun: "One of the family members is livid. He is saying Joe seems intent to do this no matter what. “He wants to exploit the kids the same way he did Michael."

    Jacko has claimed former boxer Joe Jackson beat him as a child — and the fear of him made him "regurgitate."

    Sister La Toya has also told of the "constant threat of violence" that Joe Jackson imposed on his children.

    Maybe I'm wrong, but aren't these kids only his in the sense that he bought
    and paid for them? I mean, "Blanket" is whiter than I am. I guess it's
    all moot if you've got the name and the backing.

    Joe Jackson is such a despicable human being. I thought Michael's will stated that Joe should be kept away from the children. Easy enough. Joe and Katherine live in separate houses anyway. Will the rest of that clan ever be old enough to stand up to their father?

    I would like to point out to the Americans among you (all of you!) that though The Sun is the UK's most widely read newspaper, it is also not a newspaper of particular credibility.

    They recently ran an article saying that AEG are asking Led Zeppelin and ABBA to reform to play the O2 Arena dates they had booked for Jackson. The [not very clever] Sun writers claimed "neither ABBA nor Led Zeppelin could sell out 50 dates at the O2, but together they just might be able to"

    .....yeah, right. That place's capacity is 23, 000. For 50 dates that's 1, 150, 000 people. For the first Led Zeppelin tour in forever? Look at what Oasis (huge but not as huge as Zeppelin would be) just did....the total number of people seeing them in the UK in 2009 is 668, 000, and coupled with the 181, 280 who saw them in the October/November 08 leg of the Dig Out Your Soul World Tour means within a 10 month span they've shifted 849, 280 tickets for just the British audiences alone wheras if Led Zeppelin were to do a residency, they'd have thousands of people from Europe, North America and Japan flying over for it. And Oasis only just did a gigantic set of tours of the UK in 2005 and 2006, compared to Led Zeppelin's almost 30 year hiatus. Zep could easily hit the 1.15 mill

    Hopefully that gives you some indication of how retarded The Sun are. Really not worth listening to AT ALL. Joe Jackson's a bad guy by all accounts but don't pin this one on him.

    Joe Jackson is a legend in his own mind.....the family fired him as their manager, his wife kicked him to the curb and he now lives away from the family in las Vegas, and he isn't even left anything in the will...guys a Jackson in name only

    his poor business decisions led them into bankruptcy and now he wants to cash in with just another attempt to promote his record label at the expense of his family

    Jesus this guy.

    If Debbie doesn't get custody of these 3 children, I would like to think, (in a perfect Jackson world, if that even exist) that the kids would live with either Janet or any of the brother's that have an ounce of common sense.

    If Michael's brother's, Janet or even Mrs. Jackson stood up to this piece of shit..................

    Fucking heart hurts for the cluster these children are gonna be in.

    These children have a ton of money coming their way and Joe wants a cut.

    I love how my post got completely ignored.

    If you posted this on any forum dominated by British users, the link would get laughed out of town. The Sun has never, ever been known to have any cred at all.

    I read it, I didn't acknowledge it because I knew from the headline the story was BS anyway. I think it is funny how people are getting completely riled up over something that is obviously made up. If the article was something that portrayed The Jackson's or Michael, in a positive light it would have been a completely different story, there would have been some kind of race to prove it's non-credibility.

    Gee, you never heard about this 'Jackson 3' thing until Michael died. I don't but I don't like this at all. Does anyone know if these kids can sing at all?

    well...if the jackson heritage carries on, one of them will be talented while the others will be a bunch of loser wannabes who grow up to be wildly bitter and insecure...masking that with an "I BELONG HERE TOO DAMN IT!" attitude.

    I can't stand the Jacksons....bunch of freaks...the lot of them.
