Diana Ross May Acquire Custody of Michael Jackson's Children


It’s been nearly a week since the King of Pop passed away from cardiac arrest, and perhaps the most intriguingly warped thing we’ve read about Michael Jackson so far is that Diana Ross could take guardianship of his three children.

As specifics are coming forth about Jackson’s drug use (who gave it to him?), how much he was in debt ($400 million), and what his schedule London shows would have looked like, a spotlight has been put forth on the future of Jackon’s kids: Prince, Paris, and Blanket. In Jackson’s will, which was revealed this morning and written in 2002, details on who will acquire the children as well as divisions of his assets and wealth were made public. Jackon’s mother, Katherine, has been granted custody of the kid trio, but what also is fun to digest is that in the event she is no longer to care for them, diva and Jackson friend Diana Ross will overtake custody rights. This, on top of news that Jackson and former personal dermatologist Debbie Rowe are not biological parents of the older two kids.
