Why Isn’t Diana Ross Fighting For Michael Jackson’s Kids?

Posted on July 25th, 2012 at 6:14 pm

When Michael Jackson made out his will on July 7, 2002, he decided his mother would be the best guardian for his children -- Paris, Prince Michael and Blanket -- but his backup was surprising to the media, his fans, but most of all his family.

It wasn't one of his sisters, Janet, La Toya or Rebbie. And, it wasn't the biological mother of two of his children, Debbie Rowe. It was pop star Diana Ross.

So that begs the question -- when Katherine Jackson went missing for 10 days why didn't Diana Ross try to get custody of the children?

The Ain't No Mountain High Enough singer has remained silent during the family feud.  "There could be a number of reasons for that," Legal expert Royal Oakes tells RumorFix, "the secondary person could be unwilling to care for the children, or unable/unfit in the opinion of the court to care for them."

Although some may think the 68-year-old is an odd choice as guardian, Michael didn't -- he had a lifelong obsession with the diva. He had known her since he was 10 and even lived in her Hollywood Hills home for a while.

In an interview with J. Randy Taraborrelli, described Ross as "a very dear, close friend that I can tell my deepest, darkest secrets to because I know she wouldn't tell anyone else. Her name is ... (pause for dramatic effect) Miss Diana Ross."

When the King of Pop died -- long before his will was made public -- Diana obviously knew about Michael's wishes saying, “Michael wanted me to be there for his children, and I will be there if they ever they need me."

      Diana Ross has real-world experience protecting an inheritance on an international legal level from her own two sons from her marriage to Norwegian shipping magnate Arne Naess. She would be an excellent choice if Michael’s children want to have a dime left from the carnivorous Jackson family obvious greed.

      Michael Jackson loved him some Diana Ross, and he trusted her so much. When someone leave something in the hands outside of their family there has to be trust,honor and plenty of respect.

      Michael and Diana may have gotten together and discuss many issues of (IF) I believe that Diana is not getting the children because Michael’s mom still survive him and she don’t wish to get into the family argument.

      What the judge should have done was went along with Michael’s wishes and gave temporarily custody to Diana. I don’t believe she would have said no.

      I know why he did not put his sister Latoya in his will, all the things she said about him and now she’s keeping quite on the down low.I see Michael is worth more dead then he was alive. WOW!
