A&E has denied a report that its series about Michael Jackson’s brothers will now include the pop star’s three kids: Prince, who’s 12, Paris, 11, and Blanket, 7.
Earlier today, Us Weekly reported that the kids would be on the show, and that “not everyone’s happy about it,” claiming through a second-hand source that “[e]ldest sister Rebbie, 59, who has refused to be in the series and ‘feels Michael would spin in his grave if he knew his kids would be on this show'” while “mom Katherine ‘is just going along with things.'”
Executive producer Jodi Gomes told the magazine that the series “[has] 23 cast members with the last name Jackson. They’ve done a great job opening up about losing a brother.”
