    La Toya Jackson says she is in no way trying to cash in on the Jackson three.

    The All-Star Celebrity Apprentice contestant is blasting a report that she has signed late brother Michael Jackson's children to her talent agency and has negotiated a possible reality show for nephews Prince and Blanket and niece Paris Jackson.

    "The story in the New York Post is completely and unequivocally false," La Toya's rep said Monday in a statement to E! News. "Neither La Toya nor her company represent any of MJ's children in any legal capacity nor has she received any commissions or payment as a result of their individual ventures. As a loving Aunt, when the children ask for help or advice she supports them 100 percent, and will continue to do so."

    "Furthermore," the statement continued, "there is no shopping of a reality show for the children. Paris did her movie deal over a year ago directly with the production company and La Toya had nothing to do with it."

    The Post also reported that La Toya's Ja-Tail Entertainment secured Prince's new gig as an Entertainment Tonight correspondent and a guest appearance on 90210.

    "Over the past year," her rep clarified, "Prince has continuously asked his Aunt for her help in starting his career because of the infrastructure she has.  When she asked her nephew what he wanted for his birthday he replied, 'He just wanted to work.' It was at the time that she diligently started to assist him with his career and that's when Entertainment Tonight was booked and then 90210.

    "La Toya is currently consulting with her attorneys on how to proceed against these false and derogatory statements made by the NY Post and other participating publications."
