Michael Jackson's former nanny Grace Rwaramba says that the recent family drama is exactly what the late singer tried to protect his kids from.

Grace worked for Michael for over a decade helping to look after his three children; Prince, Paris and Blanket.

And she told RadarOnline that she is not surprised about the public battle over the Thriller star's fortune.

"Everyone knows that Michael went to great lengths to protect his children from the public eye," Grace told the site.

"While the use of veils and masks was unconventional, it only highlights how important this issue was to him.

"The recent drama surrounding Michael's mother, Katherine, the ongoing custody issues and now the public dispute between Paris and Janet is exactly what Michael wanted to protect his children from.

Paris, 14, has been very vocal about the discord between her aunts and uncles and has started to receive some backlash for her outspoken nature, but Grace said that she should be given "a chance to make and learn from her mistakes without demonizing her."

"She is a spirited, very expressive and dramatic young girl," she said. "The traits that made her the apple of her father's eye are the same traits that she must learn to control as she matures into adulthood."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

It feels like friends are few and far between. If you're not getting the help you need, ask why. It may be because you have been so preoccupied with work. Skipping special occasions and failing to return phone calls causes resentment. You have to be more engaged to sustain loving bonds. Call someone you've missed. It may take a few tries, but it's worth the effort. Be forthright about why you have been out of touch. Communication is the cornerstone of every healthy relationship.More
