La Toya Jackson, sister of the late singer Michael Jackson, is denying reports that she is pushing his children into the spotlight.
The New York Post recently reported that Jackson, 56, signed her brother's children Prince,16, Paris,15, and Blanket,10, to her company Ja-Tail Enterprises. The songwriter and famed Jackson sibling was looking to get her brother's children opportunities on television including a reported reality television series worth $10 million, according to the reports.
However, Jackson has denied all of the reports concerning her trying to bring Jackson's kids into the spotlight while receiving money for the efforts.
"The story in the NY Post is completely and unequivocally false. Neither La Toya nor her company represent any of MJ's children in any legal capacity nor has she received any commissions or payment as a result of their individual ventures," representatives for Jackson said in an ABC News report. "As a loving Aunt, when the children ask for help or advice she supports them 100%, and will continue to do so."
Jackson's representatives cleared up rumors about the children's current entertainment deals while denying that a reality television show was in the works.
"Furthermore, there is no shopping of a reality show for the children. Paris did her movie deal over a year ago directly with the production company and La Toya had nothing to do with it," Jackson's representative said in ABC News. "Over the past year Prince has continuously asked his Aunt for her help in starting his career because of the infrastructure she has. When she asked her nephew what he wanted for his birthday he replied, 'He just wanted to work,' It was at the time that she diligently started to assist him with his career and that's when Entertainment Tonight was booked and then 90210."
In light of the claims made about her in media outlets, Jackson may be seeking legal action.
"La Toya is currently consulting with her attorneys on how to proceed against these false and derogatory statements made by the NY Post and other participating publications," the statement from Jackson's representatives posted on ABC news states.
