Jackson Kids Go to Hawaii with Cousins, Not Official Guardians

By Roger Friedman

hollywoodnews.com: Michael Jackson’s kids–Prince, Paris, and Michael–are on a fun filled vacation in Hawaii.

However: they are not with their guardian, grandmother Katherine Jackson. She’s been busy in Indiana and in Beverly Hills commemorating the anniversary of Michael’s death.

So who’s with the kids? Their cousins, the sons of Tito Jackson, Taj and Taryll Jackson, and some bodyguards. Almost 37 and 35 years olld, the pair of cousins are fast becoming Michael’s kids surrogate dads, or big brothers. (Tito Jackson had his kids young–he’s only 56.)

The trip, which costs hundreds of thousands of dollars, is being paid for their father’s estate. And while no one begrudges the kids a vacation, it does raise the question in their custody: where are the adults?

The tabloids were so excited to get pictures of the kids, none of them stopped to ask what the heck was going on.

Not even nanny Grace Rwaramba is with them.

    Sick Roger: LEAVE THOSE KIDS ALONE! ! Have’nt you done enough damage to Michael, now its his kids?!! Who are you to question who they spend their time with?? Are you so sick that you attack innocent children? Have’nt they gone through hell already because of you and your evil likes? You should be happy to see them enjoying their time with their ADULT cousins! Clearly since you dont, and come up with this trash of an article then you are not to be considered a decent person with good intentions. God is great Roger, you will harvest what you sow… all in good time!

    I know all about Roger and his foolishness. He doesn’t consider a 35 and 37 year old an adult. These men are Michael’s nephews. They loved Michael and I’m sure they will look after the kids. Roger just like to trash and bash the Jackson. He did it to Michael when he was living, and nothing has change. Good old Roger.

    mmmmhmmm Roger, What are you doing? Is this really all you can come up with? Maybe you are in the wrong career field.
    It really looks like while MJ isn’t around, you are now attacking those closest to him…why? Did they hurt you?
    Have you forgotten that there are two sides to EVERY story? Honestly I think you only have one side of the story. If I were in your position, I would not have written this story… At least not without knowing the other side. That is not fair writing.
    I know you can do better.

    37 and 35 isn’t that considered adult?

  • June 29, 2010 | Permalink |

    they’re with their adult cousins…whats wrong with that?

    Dude, the ADULTS are 35 and 37 years old. And since when does a trip to Hawaii cost “hundreds of thousands of dollars”? Man, you have no objectivity or sense of reality. You were so hellbent on destroying Michael Jackson and now that he isn’t around, you’re trying to destroy his children and their existing sense of normalcy by questioning their guardians. GTFOOH. Get a life, Dude.

    Roger, aren’t Taj and Tyrrell ADULTS? They can’t be trusted to take care of MJ’s kids? Why not, do they have a disability or something?

    Maybe you’re jealous that they’re in Hawaii and you’re not???

    What’s the deal? Can you maybe do some research on Conrad Murray and AEG’s role in MJ’s death and be productive for a change????

    Roger, I respected your reporting on the 2005 trial, someone recently played me a tape of you speaking to Matt Drudge in 2005 and you are speaking about a tape that the Nat’l Enquirer had where they were offering large sums of money to people to lie about MJ molesting them.

    Unfortunately I missed Drudge’s radio show at that time and it was not widely reported on.

    So I do have some respect for your reporting skills. Please use them NOW to uncover exactly who wanted Michael dead in 2009……….

    thank you.
