Michael Jackson's three children want to be film stars rather than follow in their father's footsteps and start music careers
Michael Jackson's children want to be film stars.
The late singer's brother Jermaine has revealed the three youngsters - Prince Michael I, 12, Paris, 11, and seven-year-old Prince Michael II, also known as 'Blanket' - are keen to work on movies when they are older rather than follow in their father's footsteps with a music career.
He said: "I think they are going to go into the film business.
"If we instill the right morals and principles in them at a young age then they will be able to handle whatever comes before them."
The 54-year-old singer also revealed the trio are being looked after by family members and their nannies.
Meanwhile, Michael's 79-year-old mother Katherine - the children's legal guardian - has revealed she won't watch upcoming documentary film 'This Is It' about her son.
She said: "I don't think I can bear to look at it right now. But eventually in time, I will watch it."
Michael's sister La Toya is also boycotting the movie - which includes behind-the-scenes footage of rehearsals for his planned 50-date London residency - but is "moved" by how he personally taught his backing dancers the routine to his hit 'Bad'.
She said: "I have no plans to see it. It's a bit too soon for me. It really is.
"He's just an incredible person. I just always like to speak of him like he's still with us - just an incredible talent. To see the love and the joy that he gets out of when he performs and how we're going to miss him immensely, it's just so moving and so touching.
"I am pleased to see him mentoring."
