Pop star Michael Jackson is currently living in Ireland with 39-year-old nanny Grace Rwaramba who his children reportedly call "mom".

NaijaGal reports that MJ is set to marry this African nanny! However, this story floated around the Internet since last 2006.

Rumor has it that Grace supposedly had an affair MJ's brother Jermaine back in 1999.

And in related news, Kanye West, R&B singers Chris Brown and Rihanna incorporated old school MJ songs into their new music.

Chris Brown featuring Rihanna at the VMA's: "Wall to Wall"/"Umbrella"/"Bille Jean"/"Kiss Kiss" medley:

The 1983 hit "Billie Jean is regarded as MJ's signature song. "Billie Jean" was an ode to Jackson groupies. MJ's trademark dance move,"The Moonwalk" was introduced at the televised celebration of "Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, and Forever."

Rihanna's latest single, "Don't Stop the Music" samples MJ's "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'":

She premeired the world on BET 106 & Park back in July. She also directed the video. "Wanna Be Startin' Something" jumpstarted MJ's classic 1982 multi-platinum record, "Thriller." The single was released a year later (my birthday year actually).
"Wanna Be Startin' Something" although the fourth single off "Thriller" never had a video treatment."Mama-se, mama-sa, ma-ma-koo-sa" was actually taken from the 1973 Cameroonian saxophonist's Manu Dibango's hit "Soul Makossa."

Kanye West's third single, "Good Life"(featuring T-Pain) samples "P.Y.T (Pretty Young Thing)" by MJ. "Good Life" first appeared in the ending credits of the HBO series, "Entourage."

*UPDATE: Thanks to Floacist, here's another up close shot of Grace and MJ:

I hope their marriage is well. And yes, I'm positive that they're indeed married. Michael keeps his personal life private, just like Janet was secretly married to her boyfriend Rene Elizondo for a decade until he filed for divorce.

I found more pictures of her here:

Thanks for the tip, Flo!

I wouldn't be surprised if Janet and JD are already married. She and MJ always wanted a private life outside of their public ones...

I couldn't care less about Mr. Jackson anymore ojare. Dat man's wack period. Those poor children, i wonder he still hides their faces. Only God knows d type of daily routine they go thru in their lives. Even if he marries s refugee from Afghanistan, he will still be messed up. Excuse my lingo.

I've been a MJ fan since I was born literally. I remember jamming to his "Thriller" album and staying up to catch his world premiere music videos.

I don't know if fame or his childhood contribute to his 'public persona' but MJ is NOT the same MJ I grew up with.

At least his music is still classic and stands the test of time.

I wonder how his children will turn out years from now.

Ridiculous. Until you spoke to Michael, his governess, and the children and prove that you are a social worker, you or anyone else has no right to deem the mental state and living conditions his children are in. And obviously they don't cover their faces in their own home! lol Anyone and everyone who has met them have commented on how well behaved and polite they are. You shouldn't judge what you don't know firsthand...
