Reports suggest that Michael Jackson’s three children — Prince, Paris and Blanket — are being peddled and pushed for the almighty dollar by LaToya Jackson. She has slyly taken the kids under her wing and signed them to her Ja-Tail Enterprises talent agency, which has no other clients. That’s some Tasha Mack Management shit.
While the fallout from the Thrilla In Manila: Calabasas Concrete was going down last summer, Auntie Toy Toy was thinking of a master plan. She coaxed the children in the process with “lots of ice cream and cookies,” according to a family insider.
“They needed comfort with everyone showing their wild side, so they watched television together, they listened to music and they talked about what Mike would want, Mostly, it was Toya doing all the talking.”
Prince recently signed with “Entertainment Tonight” through Ja-Tail to be a correspondent. La Toya, who has named her two poodles after Prince and Paris, stood with a watchful eye in the “ET” studios last week as Prince made his debut.
La Toya also signed Prince to appear on the CW’s remake of “Beverly Hills 90210.”
Paris inked a movie deal that will have her shooting later this year in London.
The coup de grâce for La Toya, who gets a standard 15 percent commission on each deal, would be a reality TV show deal she’s negotiating. Insiders said bidding has approached $10 million.
OWN, Oprah Winfrey’s network, is thought to be the front-runner to land the series that would feature Jacko’s children, La Toya and cameos by family matriarch Katherine.
“Toya’s working it. It’s because [Katherine] can’t say no to her,” one person close to the family said.
She was able to use the sympathy card because most of her siblings were legally barred from the mansion following the videotaped fight between Paris and her aunt Janet, the failed coup on Jacko’s will and the alleged kidnapping of Katherine.
“She pounced while everyone else was making a lot of useless noise. It was her smoke screen, and she got it done,” the insider said.
“She told them how she knew [Michael] better than anybody else, and she knew he’d want them to follow their dreams; and because they were his children, they could be media and entertainment moguls.
“She had a blueprint. She sold it, and they bought it.”
It was La Toya who prompted Paris to speak publicly for the first time at Jacko’s memorial, proclaiming him “the best daddy ever.” The speech ended with Paris in La Toya’s arms. [via]
