Michael Jackson’s three children are being raised in a chaotic environment devoid of discipline and parental supervision, a source close to the Jacksons tells RadarOnline.com exclusively.
Prince, Paris and Blanket have been living at the Jackson family Hayvenhurst home in which more than a dozen family members live. Their 80-year-old grandmother Katherine Jackson has legal custody since their father’s death last summer.
The big problem, a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com, is that the other children living in the house are out of control. The source blames Jermaine and Randy Jackson.
“Jermaine and Randy [Jackson] are the biggest ego-maniacal, self-centered people that have ever walked the face of the earth,” the source told RadarOnline.com. “They’re not raising their kids.”
Recently, several incidents, including one in which Michael’s son Blanket was allegedly chased with a stun gun by Jermaine’s 13-year-old son Jaafar, are raising red flags and have led to a Department of Children and Family Services investigation.
The chaos in the house is beyond Katherine’s ability to control, the source close to the situation told RadarOnline.com. “Ms. Jackson is wonderful, loving and committed to her family, but the other children [living in the house] don’t get the supervision they need from their parents and it’s hard for Katherine to change that behavior,” the source said.
Following the stun gun incident, RadarOnline.com obtained a video showing more violent and disturbing behavior, with Jermaine’s son Jaafar hitting his 9-year-old brother in the head with such force that it knocks him off camera and to the ground.
“Any kid that grows up with that sense of privilege…you can just imagine the behavior that’s viewed as acceptable,” the source told RadarOnline.com.
“It’s disturbing,” the source continues. “This is not something that Michael’s children are used to. They were brought up in a loving home. They’re not used to experiencing this kind of violence.”
With everything imploding inside the Jackson home, should Michael’s children be placed with another guardian? The insider says it’s not that simple.
“What are the options? Michael was very careful about who and what his children were exposed to,” said the source. “They need someone who can be a constant for them…hopefully that person can be Grace [Jackson nanny Grace Rwaramba]. Her concern has always been for Michael and now it is for his children. She is absolutely dedicated to their well being.”
