TMZ.com is reporting multiple sources in the Jackson family as saying that even if Katherine Jackson gets custody of Michael Jackson’s kids, it will be the late singer’s big sister Rebbie Jackson will raise the children.
The 59-year-old singer, who shares a home in Las Vegas with her husband of over 20 years, has kept a low public profile, but privately she has been deeply involved in the lives of Michael’s children.
TMZ reports Rebbie is currently living with Katherine at the family’s Encino, Calif., home and is caring for the kids day-to-day.
Although the family is divided on many issues involving Jackson’s estate, the gossip website says there’s no argument when it comes to Rebbie caring for the kids — and that whether she eventually becomes the custodial parent in name or not, she will end up with the primary responsibility of raising her brother’s three children.
