LaToya Jackson To Manage Michael Jackson’s Kids Careers
The older sister of Michael Jackson, LaToya Jackson has signed his three children to her new talent agency and is now acting as their manager. (Did we even know LaToya had her own agency?)
She scored Prince Jackson his big break. Prince made his debut as Entertainment Tonight’s special correspondent last week after after he signed up with his aunt’s new talent agency.
According to the New York Post, Prince, 16, Paris, 15, and ten-year-old Blanket are the only clients of Ja-Tail Enterprises, with LaToya taking 15 per cent of royalties.
And insiders tell the paper LaToya is hawking a proposed reality show featuring the trio, with bidding led by Oprah Winfrey‘s OWN network at $10million.
‘Toya’s working it. It’s because [her mother and the children’s guardian Katherine] can’t say no to her,’ the insider said.
She was able to use the sympathy card because most of her siblings were legally barred from the mansion following the videotaped fight between Paris and her aunt Janet, the failed coup on Jacko’s will and the alleged kidnapping of Katherine.
“She pounced while everyone else was making a lot of useless noise. It was her smoke screen, and she got it done,” the insider said.
“She told them how she knew [Michael] better than anybody else, and she knew he’d want them to follow their dreams; and because they were his children, they could be media and entertainment moguls.
“She had a blueprint. She sold it, and they bought it.”
LaToya is working hard for her percentage, she also signed Prince to appear on the CW’s remake of “Beverly Hills 90210,” and Paris inked a movie deal that will have her shooting later this year in London.
