When La Toya Jackson becomes the voice of reason in your life, it may be time for some soul-searching. As much of the Jackson family has become embroiled in arguments over the custody of Michael Jackson's kids, Paris Jackson, Prince Jackson and Blanket Jackson, and the execution of Michael Jackson's estate, La Toya, who has stayed out of it, is now calling for an end to the public fighting.

The 56-year-old, TMZ reports, is upset that her siblings, Janet Jackson, Randy Jackson, Jermaine Jackson and Rebbie Jackson have been so open about the issues plaguing their family. They've fought in front of TV cameras and surveillance videos, and have splashed their arguments across social media. According to TMZ:

We're told La Toya feels VERY STRONGLY that the most effective way to solve the family problems are NOT to attack each other in public ... but rather hash things out quietly ... and respectfully ... in private. So whose side is she on? Sources say she's definitely NOT aligned with Janet, Randy, Jermaine and Rebbie ... and wasn't thrilled to see them camera-whoring all over TV this week.
