LaToya Jackson to NY Post Report: I’m No Gold Digger!


LaToya Jackson is not too happy with a report published by the NY Post during the weekend, which claims that she’s gold digging her way to the heirs of her brother Michael Jackson’s estate, his three kids-Prince, Paris and Blanket.

According to the report, LaToya is being too cozy with the kids by throwing parties for them to enjoy, and by starting to manage their careers via her talent agency, Ja-Tail enterprises. Moreover, the report claims that she’s already shopping for a reality TV series for herself and the kids on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN cable network.

Because of these, LaToya issued a statement Monday night to clear out the allegations, 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.’

So far as her own career is concerned, LaToya’s doing pretty busy lately. Apart from being a contestant in “Celebrity Apprentice: All Stars” which premiered last Sunday, she’s also doing guest judge duties for the third time in “RuPaul’s Drag Race”.
