Keep Jackson turmoil private: Ross

Comment on this story

LOS ANGELES: Diana Ross says the recent turmoil involving Michael Jackson’s children and the appointment of a temporary guardian is a private matter and shouldn’t be playing out publicly.

The singer wrote in a statement that “all interests are best served if it remains private”.

Ross was named in Jackson’s 2002 will as a potential guardian for his three children if his mother was not available to serve. A judge suspended Katherine Jackson as the children’s guardian last week after a 10-day absence and instructed the temporary guardian, TJ Jackson, to notify Ross of the changes.

Court filings indicated that Ross’s attorney had been given notice.

The 68-year-old singer and Jackson were long-time friends before his death in 2009. – Sapa-AP
