Michael Jackson’s kids say they “miss their daddy.” How heartbreaking is that? What will happen to Jackson’s children now that he’s gone?
Prince, 12, Paris, 11, and Blanket (Prince Michael II), 7, are currently living with their grandparents, Michael’s mom Katherine, and dad Joe, and if the elderly couple get their wish, the children will remain there. It was Michael’s wish that should anything ever happen to him, his mom would raise his kids. And the children are reportedly expressing their desire to stay with their grandparents in Los Angeles.
The children are said to be “grief-stricken” and missing their father but are receiving comfort from family to help get them through this difficult time. They are, understably, “utterly confused and shocked” by their dad’s sudden death.
TMZ reports, “The family feel that Katherine and Joe Jackson are the only people who can help the children understand who their father was, help them grieve, and teach them to deal with life in the spotlight.
“We’re also told the kids are healthy but, as expected, they miss their daddy. They have no relationship with Debbie Rowe.”
However, the Jackson’s are willing to allow Michael’s ex-wife (and bio mom to the oldest two kids), Debbie Rowe, to visit with them, if the children so desire.
Will there be a nasty custody battle? Let’s hope not. Those children are going to have enough to deal with just being the offspring of one of the most famous people in the world – they do not need a lengthy court battle to disrupt their already upset lives.
