The permanent custody of Michael Jackson’s three kids – Prince, 12, Paris, 11, and Blanket, 7, has yet to be determined and they are living with their grandmother, Katherine Jackson. However, the person they turn to for comfort, is their aunt, Janet Jackson.
According to pals, the children think of auntie Janet as their “make-believe mom,” and have grown close to her.
“She’s the one they’re turning to now. Janet has totally bonded with the kids since their father’s death.
“They fly into her arms when she enters the house and would spend all day every day hanging out with her if they could. It’s almost like they have adopted her as their new mom.”
The insider added, “They adore Katherine but they relate a lot more to Janet, who’s got the energy to keep up with their constant questions about their dad.”
It’s nice that the children are surrounded by so many loving family members to help them through this difficult time.
