All the doubters have to do to see the likeness is look into their eyes – especially those of *****’s youngest Blanket. Tito said: “They are all his children. Blanket is Michael’s, I can tell. Those eyes don’t lie. Them eyes are Michael over again. I see a lot of Michael in him.”
Tito said it was ridiculous so many people should question *****’s parenthood because the children have such light skins – especially when Prince and Paris’s mum Debbie Rowe is white.
He added: “Paris and Prince are Michael’s children. Yes they are. Just because they look white doesn’t mean they are not his.
“I have an uncle who is married to a white girl and they have three kids. Two of them are white and one is black.
“When they go to school people don’t even know they are brother and sister.
“They are all Michael’s children. Prince looks just like my grandfather. There’s no question they are Michael’s. They are 100% his.
“The kids are like three peas in a pod. They remind me of me and my brothers when we were growing up.”
Tito admitted not even he knew the identity of Blanket’s mum. He added: “Nobody knows who his mother is, nobody. That’s the million dollar question. When I find out I’ll call you!”
Tito insisted despite having grown up in the full glare of the celebrity spotlight, Prince, 12 Paris, 11, and seven-year-old Blanket are like any other children.
He added: “The kids are very, very normal. They are normal kids, they play with my grandson a lot. They have lots of fun, they squirt the dogs with water guns and they play with toys and play ball with their cousins.
“They have stay-at-home school with one teacher who teaches all of them. They don’t watch much TV. They only watch cartoons. Their television is monitored, especially at this time, with what has happened to their dad. They don’t need to see that.”
Tito, 55, said the three children have been brought up to realise their dad is a world superstar.
But they used to enjoy dodging fans and wearing their famous masks when they went out, treating it as a game. He said: “They know they are famous and they know their dad was famous. When you grow up in the business it becomes totally natural. Being around it every day, seeing the girls screaming and having to rush into cars all the time, it was a way of life.
“They were absolutely aware who their dad was but at the same time they knew he was a dad. They were a family first and foremost.”
Tito said ***** took the youngsters out in disguise because he wanted them to be able to do all the things ordinary children take for granted.
He added: “Michael did a lot of things to make up for the fact parts of their childhood were not normal.
“He took them to amusement parks, travelled a lot all over the world, went to Disney World.
“They saw a lot more than you think. A lot of time they were out in public and nobody knew who they were. They went out and did things as a family.
“My brother had make-up artists. He could have been standing next to you and you wouldn’t know it was him. He’d have a rubber face on and nobody knew it was Michael.”
Tito found out just how good his brother’s disguises could be during a film premiere.
He said: “This old man sat next to me. I thought ‘Who is this weird old guy?’ because he just looked different.
“Then the guy leans in and whispers in my ear ‘TT’. I said ‘Michael?’ and sure enough, it was my brother.
“He would do the same at the beach or at Disneyland with the kids and nobody would know.”
Tito said he was confident all three of the children would grow up to be a credit to Michael.
He added: “The children will now grow up in a very healthy atmosphere.
“They are going to be well taken care of and looked after. They are Michael to us.
They will go to college and become successful in their own ways. I’m sure they will be able to adapt to the outside world.”
Tito said reports that his dad Joe was grooming the kids to become a new version of the Jackson 5 were untrue. He added: “My father has no intentions whatsoever of turning Michael’s kids into a singing group.
“He’s been there, done that already. Michael’s kids are going to be allowed to be pretty much what they want to be, as long as it’s beneficial to themselves and to the world.
“They are not going to be pushed into becoming performers. If it’s natural, then maybe they will. Blanket is the one I can see it happening to. He is so like Michael.”
Tito still finds it hard to come to terms with Debbie’s decision to give up Prince and Paris in exchange for a multi-million pound pay-off.
He said: “She is the mother of Paris and Prince and she should have been there years ago.
“If you really are a mother you wouldn’t give your kids up. No matter what amount of money or whatever, you don’t give your kids up. It’s more than money, it’s love. Michael gave her money to go away and she accepted it.
“Everyone does things differently. Maybe Michael wanted to be a single parent, maybe he felt that having a woman around at that time would have been a distraction because he was very focused on his work. Maybe he wanted children without the other side of it.”
But despite all that has happened, Tito would welcome Debbie if she chose to play a part in the children’s future upbringing.
He said: “I’m not saying we’re going to turn them over to her but definitely she can have rights to visit, hang out and be part of the family. After all is said and done, they are her kids.
“I would like to see her be part of the Jackson family. There is enough love for everybody.”
