Michael Jackson‘s brother Jermaine discussed the late King of Pop’s three children — Prince Michael, Paris and Blanket — in an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com backstage at Dancing With The Stars on Tuesday night.
Jackson said Michael’s kids are big fans of the weekly ballroom competition, and were watching the show — which included a classy tribute to their late father — at home with their nannies and Jermaine’s children.
He said the family aims to “instill the right values and morals” into the trio of kids, picking up where Michael left off.
“Michael was very strong with them, very straightforward, he didn’t just give them anything,” Jermaine said. “He disciplined them in a way they’ll understand [that] you have to work hard to achieve anything.”
When RadarOnline.com’s Tina Malave asked Jermaine if Michael’s children were interested in becoming entertainers, Jermaine said they were “very, very much” likely to pursue film careers in the future.
Along with Jermaine, Michael Jackson’s mother Katherine and sister LaToya were spotted in the audience; absent from the festivities were sister Janet and father Joe. Fans of the family will be happy to learn that their reality TV show, according to Jermaine, is currently in working stages.
Dancing With The Stars airs Monday at 8/7c and Tuesday at 9/8c on ABC.
