Tito Jackson's daughter Tanay Jackson says that her 82-year-old grandmother is not the right person to take care of Paris, Prince and Blanket. (Read: The Jackson family saga - 10 things to know)
She told American TV show Inside Edition
: "I don't think she should raise the kids. I understand that she is attached to them and she has been raising them and that's probably why she still wants to have a little bit more involvement."
The aspiring singer added: "I think she needs a rest."
Instead Tanay thinks Tito's 34-year-old son TJ - who won temporary custody of his cousins last week - is the right person to care for Michael Jackson's children.
She said: "The best person to raise them would be TJ. He's younger. He's a dad himself and he's become a father figure to Michael's kids. They like him very much, that I know." (Read: Michael Jackson's mother Katherine loses custody of his children)
Tanay Jackson also spoke out about the public spat between Janet Jackson and 14-year-old Paris.
She revealed: "Janet means very well. She knew that Paris did all the tweets and that's probably why she wanted to take Paris' phone away, so she wouldn't continue to cause all that hoopla."
Since the interview, Taryll Jackson - Tito Jackson's son - denied Tanay Jackson as even his half-sister.
Referring to an earlier interview she gave, Taryll Jackson tweeted on Sunday (July 29, 2012) :
In 2008 Tanay Jackson - then 25 - filed a petition in a Brooklyn Family Court to declare that the former Jackson 5 member is her father, according to the New York Post.
