Michael Jackson’s children ‘won’t appear in reality TV show’

Katherine Jackson is apparently against Paris, Prince and Blanket appearing

Michael Jackson‘s mother Katherine has reportedly confirmed that the late singer’s children won’t be appearing in a new reality TV programme following the family.

‘The Jacksons: A Family Dynasty’ was originally conceived before Jackson‘s death in June to document the Jackson 5 recording their comeback album.

However, the nature of the programme was altered following the star’s passing to reflect the Jackson family’s thoughts on their loss, with Tito Jackson previously explaining that it shows personal and public aspects of their lives.

Us Weekly had stated that Jackson‘s three children – Prince, 12, Paris, 11 and Blanket, 7 – were due to appear in the programme, after executive producer Jodi Gomes confirmed that “23 cast members with the last name Jackson” had signed up.

However, TMZ.com reports that it has since been told by Katherine Jackson that the infants won’t feature in the show at all, adding that Jackson went to great lengths to ensure his children’s privacy.

The self-styled king of pop’s eldest sister Rebbie told Us Weekly that “Michael would spin in his grave if he knew his kids would be on this show”.
