Michael Jackson's brother wants the late star's three children to "follow their father's path".

Jackie Jackson enjoys spending time with Prince Michael, 15, Paris, 13, and nine-year-old Prince Michael II, who is known as Blanket, and though they are now in the public eye more than they were before their famous dad died in 2009, he is hoping they stay on the straight and narrow.

Asked what advice he would give to the children, Jackie told Hollyscoop: "Just keep your head on straight. Their father was like that. I hope they will just follow their father's path.

"We're together all the time."

Paris will soon make her movie debut in 'Lundon's Bridge and the Three Keys' and Jackie says she is already showing signs of being a great actress.

He added: "She's very good. She takes lessons all the time. She's heading in that direction, don't you think?"

While Jackie is proud of Paris' career progress, his sister Janet recently admitted she wishes the teenager would wait before starting work.

Janet - who started her career at a young age, appearing with her siblings in a Las Vegas show at the age of seven - said: "I'd prefer for her to wait, I think she should enjoy her youth.

"You're only young once and to really have a wonderful time and enjoy it, she has the rest of her life to be an adult, and she should study, she should go to school and study The Craft and think about college and maybe study abroad, acting, and then when she becomes 18 she could dive into it if she wants."
