Janet Jackson does Xmas for the kids

While most of us will be trying to avoid our dodgy uncle as he hands around the mistletoe, Michael Jackson’s children are set to have a fantastic Christmas Day with their auntie Janet.

The chart-topping star has apparently spent thousands of dollars to make the festive season as fun as possible for her late brother’s three kids, Prince (12), Paris (11) and Blanket (7).

Says a source close to the family, “It was to be a quiet, sombre holiday this year but Janet has stepped in to make it just like Michael did – fun. Michael loved Christmas. He was like a big kid and now Janet has taken that on. She must have spent thousands on trees, decorations and the kind of toys Michael would have loved to be fooling around with on Christmas morning.”

The insider continues, “Christmas is especially significant for the family this year as the first without Michael and the fact Christmas Day is exactly six months since his death.”
