While Michael Jackson
‘s family members are reportedly embroiled in drama over the late singer’s will
— a tension that bubbled into headlines over the weekend when 82-year-old matriarch Katherine Jackson was first reported missing
, then turned up in Arizona at the home of daughter Rebbie — the “Black Or White” crooner’s daughter Paris has been tweeting regularly. Her short posts range from cryptic, yet poignant, references to her father’s song lyrics to musings about her school work and the 14-year-old’s support for gay marriage. More »
, the woman who gave birth to more than one of the last century’s greatest entertainers, has been reported missing. The report was filed by Trent Jackson
, her nephew, after some confusion about whether or not she was traveling with daughter Rebbie Jackson
. This follows a series of disagreements within the Jackson family, with five of Katherine’s children (including Janet Jackson
) stating publicly that the 82-year-old was being mistreated by the executors of Michael Jackson
‘s estate, claiming his will had been faked. There are also conflicting reports about Ms. Jackson’s health.

After years of supposed beef between 50 Cent
and Oprah Winfrey
, the two finally get to talk millionaire-y-millionaire on an upcoming episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter
. Fiddy has, to say the least, been a critic of Oprah’s, though he’s made a change of heart the last few years — he even named his dogs after the talk show host and her friend Gayle. “It started out negative ’cause I thought Oprah didn’t like hip-hop culture,” he said on The View

The late, great Michael Jackson was honored today by having his glove and shoe prints immortalized at the famous Grauman’s Chinese Theater. Joining the Gloved One’s family for the ceremony was Justin Bieber (with his newly tinted ‘do
), who posed alongside Jackson’s daughter, Paris. Perhaps having the late King Of Pop as your dad makes one immune to Bieber Fever, as the tween seemed unfazed by the close encounter with the Canadian crooner. (Or maybe it’s simply because Paris’ heart still belongs to Chris Brown
No one was more excited for Chris Brown’s sold-out Staples Center gig than Paris Jackson
, when the Soul Train Awards nominee
heard the late King Of Pop’s daughter was coming, he generously invited her to attend his sound check. If you couldn’t tell by the 13-year-old’s Twitter profile pic, she got a photo with the “Lighthouse”
co-writer as well. After the concert Paris tweeted
to the pop star, “@ChrisBrown AMAZING Show Tonight!! You Were Outstanding!!<3″. Crazy to think it was just over a year ago that Breezy gave a teary tribute
to her father, as MJ was a major influence on his music career. Circle of life, y’all.
Over two years after the King Of Pop’s passing,
MJ fandom is as strong as ever, with major stars still turning out to honor the fallen legend. At this weekend’s Michael Jackson Forever tribute concert in Wales, performers such as Christina Aguilera, Jamie Foxx, Cee Lo Green, Leona Lewis, and Ne-Yo paid homage by singing the IMMORTAL

diva Beyonce, introduced by Michael’s children. Catch Xtina, Ne-Yo, and Bey below.
Michael Jackson is still with us, thanks to imitators like Nick Cannon
. But the self-styled King Of Pop also remains in our midst via the faces of his children, who seem to be growing up faster every day. Closely guarded by their family, seldom-seen siblings Paris — look at her eyes
! — and Prince seem undaunted by Hollywood. Paris (wearing trendy red Converse to match her school shirt) and Prince hit up their local Starbucks after school in Los Angeles this week, and recently hung out
with fellow mega-star offspring Jaden
and Willow Smith
recently. Will they follow in MJ’s moonwalking footsteps? Check our gallery before you decide.
