*The videos of Michael Jackson’s kids that ended up on the Internet this week have come to the attention of the late singer’s father Joseph. And he is not happy.
“We don’t know who [the hacker] was, but we’re trying to find out,” he tells PopEater. He says the family “doesn’t want the videos on YouTube” and completely rules out any chance that Paris and Blanket uploaded them.
The bulk of the videos feature 8-year-old Blanket acting out movie scenes, telling imaginative tales — but two feature his sister Paris, 12. One video is of her simply saying, “Monkey, please help,” while the other shows Paris lip-synching over an Omer Bhatti rap song.
In the room with Blanket is his cousin Donte, the adopted son of Randy Jackson. On his Twitter around the time the videos emerged, he said his “privacy is precious” and slams “others who live to violate.”
Family matriarch Katherine Jackson recently arranged for Donte and his mother, Alejandra, along with several other cousins, to move out of the family compound. A family friend close to the situation tells us that the videos may have been recorded while they were all still living in the house. Alejandra has children with both Randy and Jermaine.
The source says the family is taking steps to have the videos removed.
According to the account owner of the KingOfPopKids YouTube channel, which posted many of the clips of Paris and Blanket, Jackson “fans” were responsible for hacking into their accounts online and posting the personal videos.
“Some ‘fans’ got into one family member account (Facebook and Photobucket) and posted them on the Web,” the user told PopEater in an e-mail interview. “I have been told the account was public and then made private.”
The user, who did not give a name, said he/she already removed one video after being contacted by Jackson family friend Omer Bahtti, and vowed to yank more if that’s what the family wants.
“If they ask for the videos to be removed, we will surely respect their demand.”
