    Halperin told the publication that his source is concerned for the children and may soon speak out publicly. Additionally, the writer claimed a family member inside the Jackson camp is very upset over the patriarch's plans.

    "One of the family members is livid. He is saying Joe seems intent to do this no matter what," Halperin said.

    On Friday, during an interview with ABC's "Good Morning America," Joe hinted at the talents of Michael's children.
