Good news: Jacko's dad finds new kids to exploit

Mr Jackson, who managed the Jackson Five when Michael was a child, is said to have approached Prince Michael, 12, Paris, 11, and seven-year old Prince Michael II – known as Blanket – to appear on stage next year. News of the tour comes after Mr Jackson told reporters that Paris had shown talent as a performer and that Blanket was a very good dancer.

However, the move has angered other members of the Jackson clan, who fear touring could expose the children to exploitation.
