Paris, Prince and Blanket want to join the artists that will pay tribute to their father on October 8 at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff , Wales.
A rep for the Jackson family told TMZ, ” Paris , Blanket and Prince have been asked to attend the MJ Tribute in Wales and they have decided to go.”
“They are extremely excited and they’re hoping they will have the opportunity to contribute in some way by making a speech. Nothing has been set in stone yet for how they can help, but they really hope they can,” the rep added.
However, the children’s uncles Jermaine and Randy are opposing their wish to attend the concert, calling the timing of the tribute “inappropriate.”
“We find it impossible to support an event that is due to take place during the criminal trial surrounding Michael’s death … We feel it is inappropriate to be involved with such an ill-timed event,” the two brothers said in a statement.
The tribute concert will feature guest stars such as Kanye West, Christina Aguilera and Jay-Z and it is rumored that it will be aired on major U.S. networks.
