Michael Jackson's Kids "Doing Fine" Following His Death

article-1195641-01e3919700000578-693_634x629

Michael Jackson left behind three children – Prince Michael, 12, Paris, 11, and Blanket (Prince Michael II), 7 - and according to Jackson family attorney, Brian Oxmon, they are “doing fine,” following the untimely death of their father.

From Us magazine:

“They are in the care of a nanny,” he tells Usmagazine.com, adding that they’re staying with their grandmother, Katherine. “Ms. Jackson will care for them and I’m sure there will be all kinds of discussions that will take place about the kids.”

The children Blanket, 7, Paris, 11, and Prince Michael, 12 – are “just beautiful,” Oxmon says. “They’re well-trained, well educated and extraordinarily talented. They get to play with their cousins and their nieces and their nephews. They are just smarter than smart can be.”

(Paris and Prince Michael were born through artificial insemination when Jackson was briefly wed to Debbie Rowe. Prince Michael Jackson II’s mother’s identity was never released.)

Oxmon tells Us Jackson family members are still struggling to cope with the shocking loss.

“They are stunned,” Oxmon tells Us. “They are barely even able to speak about it.”

Oxmon was with the family at the hospital (mother Katherine, brothers Randy and Jermaine, and sister LaToya, arrived separately at the hospital for vigil).

“They were silent, they were crying, they weren’t really able to say anything,” he says. “They just were stunned by this whole experience.”

Adds Oxmon, “I know that they are now all together.”

Although the kids are being temporarily cared for by Michael’s family, who will eventually have custody of the Jackson children and what part of their father’s fortune (if there’s any left) will they receive?

Debbie Rowe, Michael’s ex wife and mother of this two oldest children, gave up her parental rights, but could she possibly get custody?  Are there special circumstances (such as death of one parent) that the other parent’s rights can be reinstated?  Do the kids even know her?

According to a close family source, Rowe is expected to receive temporary custody of the children while more permanent arrangements are made.

As for Jackson’s estate – it’s unclear what will happen.  He was in debt for nearly $60 million and his upcoming tour was expected to take care of that.  Hopefully, there’s something left for his children.
