Michael Jackson’s Kids A Year Later: They Are Normal & Happy

It’s hard to believe that it’s been a year since Michael Jackson’s death. As the world prepares to memorialize the King of Pop on June 25, his loved ones are still sorting through their grief. “It just shook up the family,” his brother Tito tells In Touch.

Like Tito, brother Marlon says that Michael is always on his mind. The family has gone to great lengths to allow Michael’s three children, Prince, 13, Paris, 12, and Blanket, 8, to grieve on their own time. Despite much talk that Janet might take over custody of the kids, Tito says this is false, but “Janet will do anything that she feels is necessary for her niece and nephews.” For now, the children will stay with their mother Katherine, with everyone pitching in.

Both uncles describe them as normal, happy kids. “Prince likes electronics. He can hook up about anything. He also likes karate,” says Marlon. And all of the kids are musically talented. “I truly believe that God blessed this family with the gift of music to make people happy all over the world. If they want to become performers, that’s fine with me and my mom, but they also have to get an education,” Marlon adds.
