The New York Post called La Toya Jackson out for signing her late-brother’s children Prince Michael and Paris to her talent agency, Ja-Tail Enterprises, and collecting a 15 percent commission on their deals. (Paris will start shooting her first movie in London soon, and Prince Michael recently was a correspondent for “Entertainment Tonight” and will soon be featured on the CW’s “90210” series.)
It’s also reported that La Toya was trying to shop around a reality series to Oprah Winfrey‘s network, OWN.
In the article, they say her relationship with Michael Jackson‘s children false and derogatory.
La Toya fired back via a statement from her publicist to The Hollywood Reporter, saying:
“The story in The NY Post is completely and unequivocally false. Neither La Toya nor her company represent any of MJ’s children in any legal capacity nor has she received any commissions or payment as a result of their individual ventures. As a loving Aunt, when the children ask for help or advice she supports them 100%, and will continue to do so.
Furthermore, there is no shopping of a reality show for the children. Paris did her movie deal over a year ago directly with the production company and La Toya had nothing to do with it. Over the past year, Prince has continuously asked his Aunt for her help in starting his career because of the infrastructure she has. When she asked her nephew what he wanted for his birthday he replied, “He just wanted to work,” It was at the time that she diligently started to assist him with his career and that’s when Entertainment Tonight was booked and then 90210.
La Toya is currently consulting with her attorneys on how to proceed against these false and derogatory statements made by The NY Post and other participating publications.”
