More Info On Michael's Will! Diana Ross, What????

| Filed under: Legal MattersMichael Jackson

Some new interesting details are coming out now that Michael Jackson's actual will has become public.

The biggest reveal so far was that Michael did indeed entrust the custody of his children to his mother, Katherine Jackson. However, the will also states that if his mother had died before him or could not serve as guardian, then the next in line for custody was Diana Ross.

We hope she knew about that!

For one thing, it is an honor to know someone trusts you that much, however, it would have been a rather shocking task to deal with had it had to come to pass.

    oh..wow..didn't know that…i think diana ross would be pretty understanding and likely would take the kids in:)

    wow! this is shocking…i still believe that the children should be in the care of one of the Jacksons because it'll give them more of a sense of family…and closeness. RIP MICHAEL I LOVE YOU.
    GOD BLESS YOUR BEAUTIFUL SOUL!

    I cannot belive he would leave his children to his mother. She is in her 70s she has no business raising anymore children. And why would he want his deadbeat dad anywhere near his children. I am just completly amazed.



  7. 7

    twins???????



  8. 8

    She'd be a better mother than Katherine. Her kids seem to have turned out normal and have never talked about being abused.



  9. 9

    MJ's 79 year old mom is going to raise MJ's children??? That just proves that MJ is not the only wacko Jackson



  10. 10

    I am sure Diana knew about it!



  11. 11

    oh no, does that mean that Diana Ross will have to drag MJ's kids with her when she visits Norway? Please spare us from this spectacle



  12. 12

    seriously? she's a hot mess of shit too! these kids are doomed…so sad.



  13. 13

    65 year old Diana Ross to take over MJ's kids when his 79 year old mom can't take care of them anymore. Would it not be better if Debbie Row or MJ's sister Janet raised the kids. Why should those poor children be raised in a geriatric ward????



  14. 14

    Talk about a slap in the face to the rest of your family.



  15. 15

    …*knock, knock, knock* "Yes, hello? Hi Miss Ross. We have a surprise for you. Come on kids. This is your new mommy." Ms. Ross then begins to sing "I Will Survive" followed by "Upside Down".

    Stop making assumptions, fatass. You don't know shit…Michael looks normal in this pic…

    I'M NOT SURPRISED AT ALL. MICHAEL LOVED DIANA.

    ALSO, HIS ENTIRE ESTATE WAS PUT IN A TRUST FUND, WITH HIS MOTHER AND DIANA AS TRUSTEES.

    HE DID THE RIGHT THING. KEEP THE MONEY IN THE FAMILY.

    AND FOR ALL YOU ASSHOLES TALKING SHIT ABOUT MIKE'S DECISION, THINK ABOUT THIS.

    HIS PARENTS RAISED HIM IN THEIR WAY, AND HE BECAME THE MOST FAMOUS MAN IN HISTORY, AS WELL AS ONE OF THE RICHEST.

    YOUR PARENTS RAISED YOU IN THEIR WAY, AND YOU'RE SITTING AT A COMPUTER TALKING SHIT.

    SOUNDS LIKE JOE AND KATHERINE DID THE BETTER JOB OF RAISING THEIR SON.

    Re: Shannyn – those kids were doomed at conception



  20. 20

    Well at least he didn't make the big mistake of designating Liz as the next in line.

    Having known some people raised by their grandparents, I can safely say that they are way better adjusted than most of the ones I know raised by their parents. Most fuck-ups are raised by their parents. I'm sure grandma will do a great job. Lucky kids to have her around.



  22. 22

    It's child abuse sticking them with any member of the Jackson clan. Sins of the father which is Joe Jackson still prevails to this day.



  23. 23

    i don't know.. but i think that diana would be a better mom than katherine…

  24. Lene says – reply to this


    24

    I bet katherine and Diana would both be great guardians, but… how about someone younger?? ;)



  25. 25

    they are both older….poor kids…too Bad Janet can't take care of them..she would be a younger Mom whoever gets them..I hope they give them their time most of all…I know a Mom who works 8 hours then goes to the gym 3 now how much face time does that 2 year old get with Mom..its sad pitifuly sad.

    Re: dark1 – who appointed you for the keeper of the truth?? MJ was a freak, and so is the rest of his wacko family. Are you really dumb enough to think that "sitting in front of the computer" = poor trash??

    1. MJ has not produced anything worh listening to since Thriller
    2. He made a zillion dollar and waisted it like there was no tomorrow
    3. MJ was so unsatisfied with his look that he altered it so much he did not look human anymore.
    4. He wrote a song abot it not mattering if you were black or white, but bleached his skin white

    the list goes on!!



  27. 27

    i am so saddened by what has happened to my idol. i will never forget Michael! i went to mjmycar.net ordered mj commemorative decal. it came today and brougt me to tears. i'm going to put it on my car and drive to the funeral. rip Michael



  28. 28

    screening comments again….Diana Ross is a rude bitch…and would probably beat those kids after just one chardonnay



  29. 29

    Why do you say it would be a "shocking task" if it came to pass?

    In the same post, you state you DONT FUCKING KNOW IF SHE WAS AWARE OF THIS clause in the will. And yet, its a shocking task? You're a fucking idiot Perez. You're just making drama where there doesnt need to be any. Again, you're a fucking idiot.

    Farrah Faucett went heaven and met God, and God gave her one wish. She asked for all the children to be safe. So God killed Michael Jackson.

    Re: FugsMagee – You are an idiot. Too bad Farrah only had one wish. I'd bet she would ask for god to get rid of morons like you.



  32. 32

    drama fo yo mama!



  33. 33

    Interesting because I thought they had a falling out years ago.
    Diana has always been a good mother, though. You never hear anything negative about her kids and one of her daughters is an actress.

    But I don't know if I believe it.



  34. 34

    No offense towards Diana Ross or Katharine Jackson…but they are both pretty up there in age. And despite the fact that Katharine Jackson and Joe Jackson are pretty much separated but still married *they live in separate houses* the kids would still have the possibility of being put in the same situation that Michael and his siblings were in. And bio-mom Debbie Rowe doesn't seem interested in the kids at all. In my personal humble opinion I think that the kids should go to the nanny, who they have already bonded with and who the kids referred to as the mom-figure on many occasions…and in alleged current statements MJ stated he wanted the kids to go to the nanny. Also she seems like she wouldn't bring any unnecessary drama into it and doesn't seem like she would try to get any monetary gain out of it.



  35. 35

    Wow, he was really determined to appoint some VERY elderly women custody of children. Hmm, not his sis Janet?

  36. Cass says – reply to this

    BFD. My choices for guardian are not family members. They're the people who I think will do the best job raising and caring for my kids.

    Diana Ross has successfully raised her own children, and maybe MJ felt she had qualities that would benefit his kids. Besides, to burden siblings with three more kids, when they have none and work like crazy (Janet) or already have many to care for (the other siblings) isn't always the best choice.



  37. 37

    I'm not at all surprised. Katherine is a very strong matriarch who has the complete love, loyalty, and devotion of her children. Diana was one of his closest friends and cared for him since he himself was a small child. It's not terribly hard to see why he chose these two women to care for his children in case of his untimely death.



  38. 38

    well, the kids might know the difference, given how much Diana looks like Michael….but that's not the point….if Michael had named ME guardian I wouldn't have done it, so Diana doesn't have to do anything either. you're not required by law to adhere to someone's wishes: would YOU have taken the children, Mario, if he left them to you??? anyway, the will is 7 years old, blanket was still a mere thread back then…



  39. 39

    DIANA ROSS WAS 1 OF THE CLOSEST PEOPLE TO MJ. SHES KNOWN HIM SINCE A KID… IM SURE SHE KNEW ABOUT IT. R.I.P MIKE



  40. 40

    MICHAEL JACKSON I am EXTRA PROUD of you and you did the right thing. Your Mother, then DIANA , Diana was always calling talk shows to defend you in the past and was always a loyal friend.I am just glad of the people you chose around your will let all the others go and raise pigs and work hard for their living



  41. 41

    \I can always remember calling Diana Ross his mother until people speculated they were lovers



  42. 42

    I feel pretty confident that children have a life to look forward to despite their loss



  43. 43

    Perez, you shouldn't write about Michael Jackson until you apologize for accusing him of faking his death in the first place. Take responsibility for what you've said.



  44. 44

    Custody has to be consensual before it can be filed like that, of course she knew. You're an idiot.
