Another Jackson family member has broken ranks to open up about their family feud.
“I don’t think she should raise the kids,” the aspiring singer said about the 82-year-old family matriarch. “I understand that she is attached to them and she has been raising them and that’s probably why she still wants to have a little bit more involvement.”
But, she added: “I think she needs a rest.”
“The best person to raise them would be TJ,” she said. “He’s younger. He’s a dad himself and he’s become a father figure to Michael’s kids…
“They like him very much, that I know.”
“Janet means very well,” Tanay said. “She knew that Paris did all the tweets and that’s probably why she wanted to take Paris’ phone away, so she wouldn’t continue to cause all that hoopla.”
But, by speaking out, Tanay seems to have created some hoopla of her own. Taryll Jackson – the middle of Tito’s three boys – denied she is even his half-sister.
Referring to an earlier interview she gave he tweeted on Sunday: “Tanay Jackson is NOT related to us.”
In 2008 Tanay – then 25 – filed a petition in a Brooklyn Family Court to declare that the former Jackson 5 member is her father, according to the New York Post.
