JANET Jackson,pictured, is spending thousands to make Christmas special for her late brother Michael's children.
The singer - who is the younger sister of the late Thriller star - has insisted on making Christmas Day a "fun" time for Paris, 12, and Prince Michael I, 11, and Prince Michael II, 7, also known as "Blanket".
A source said: "It was to be a quiet, sombre holiday this year but Janet has stepped in to make it just like Michael did - fun.
"Michael loved Christmas. He was like a big kid and now Janet has taken that on. She must have spent thousands on trees, decorations and the kind of toys Michael would have loved to be fooling around with on Christmas morning."
The late "King of Pop" died from acute propofol intoxication and his family had initially planned to have a more low-key day.
Since losing their father, the trio have been looked after by Michael's mother Katherine, 79, - who is their legal guardian - family members and nannies.- Bang
