The legendary diva reportedly has agreed to become guardian of Michael’s three kids when their grandmother Katherine can no longer care for them.
Diana Ross was one of Michael Jackson‘s biggest supporters from his childhood on, and now in death she will be a protector of his children — just as he wished her to be!
Diana, 67, would become guardian of Prince Michael, 14, Paris, 12, and Blanket, 9, when Michael’s mother Katherine Jackson passes away, RadarOnline.com reports.
Michael, who died at age 50, “didn’t trust anyone in his family besides his mother to raise the children. Michael loved Diana and chose her for a very specific reason,” a source tells Radar.
Katherine will be 81 on May 4 and has a live-in caregiver. “Katherine is a very doting, loving grandmother,” the source adds. “She just isn’t getting any younger and that is why Michael named a second guardian.”
Diana befriended the Jackson family just as Michael and his brothers were starting their career as the Jackson 5. She had a close relationship with him throughout his life, and they starred together in The Wiz.
She has five adult children of her own and will step in to raise Michael’s kids if she is needed.
