Celebuzz / July 23, 2009

Michael Jackson may have named his mother Katherine as guardian of his three children in his will, but according to TMZ, if the Jackson family has its way, Michael’s older sister Rebbie will be raising them.

Sources tell the Web site that, even if Katherine retains custody of Prince Michael I, Paris, and Prince Michael II in any custody battles that might be forthcoming, the family is in agreement that Rebbie, 59, will take responsibility for the their upbringing.

Rebbie Jackson has lived with her husband in Las Vegas for 20 years, but is apparently currently staying at the Jackson family’s Encino, California, home, and has developed an intense bond with the children.

Earlier reports indicated that Jackson’s other sister, Janet, might raise the kids.
