La Toya: 'I would raise Michael's kids'

La Toya Jackson has revealed that she would like to bring up her late brother Michael's children if it becomes too much for her mother.

The Celebrity Big Brother star, who has no kids of her own, told The Mirror that she thinks Prince Michael, 12, Paris Michael Katherine, 11, and 7-year-old Prince Michael II are better off staying with the family.

She said: "According to the will, Diana Ross will be the guardian if anything happened to my mother.

"I know Diana would do a good job with them but I think the kids will stay in the family and I'd be more than delighted to look after them."

The 53-year-old dismissed suggestions that the children's natural mothers might have a role to play and admitted the Jacksons had been baffled by actor Mark Lester's claims that he could be Paris's dad.

She stated: "My mother didn’t understand it. It was a very sensitive time to be bringing that up. Why not approach my parents for a private conversation? It's interesting how many people suddenly want to be the parent.

"Thank God the children haven't heard about it as they don't watch TV. Do you know how many people in America have said they're the parents? It’s amazing.

"All these women saying, 'I'm the mother, I'm the mother'. Michael was always the father and the mother to those children."
