Why Isn't Diana Ross Fighting For Michael Jackson's Children?

26 July 2012

With the ongoing family drama surrounding who should look after Michael Jackson's three children - Paris, Prince Michael and Blanket, following their grandmother's disappearance over 10 days, several fingers having be pointing to singer Diana Ross.

When Michael drafted his will in the summer of 2002, he decided pop star Ross would be the most suitable guardian for his children, should his mother Katherine Jackson be unfit to - a decision which no doubt surprised not only the public, but his family and friends too.

The ex-Supremes songstress even publicly stated after MJ's passing,

“Michael wanted me to be there for his children, and I will be there if they ever they need me.”

And it ultimately raises the question - during the period when Katherine went missing, why didn't Ross step up to get custody of the kids?

The Motown star has so far remained silent during the mini fiasco, and according to legal expert Royal Oakes, there could be a number of reasons for that.

He told RumorFix: "The secondary person could be unwilling to care for the children, or unable/unfit in the opinion of the court to care for them."

And although it may come as a shock to many that the 'Thriller' singer chose the 68-year-old as guardian, for MJ, the decision seemed natural, considering his lifelong obsession with the diva.

Should Diana be stepping in to help with the custody mess? Would the children be better off in her care?
