The three children of the late singer are finally breaking their silence about life with, and without, their father.
When he was alive, Michael Jackson did everything he could to protect his three children from the spotlight. He homeschooled them and put them in disguises and masks when they ventured out in public. But since the King of Pop’s death last July, the kids have ventured out in public more and more, and are attending school and even going to karate classes. Now, Prince Michael, 13, Paris, 12, and Blanket, 8, are set to talk openly about life with their dad, in an interview with Oprah.
Last Saturday (Oct. 9), Oprah visited with Michael’s parents, Katherine and Joe Jackson, and reports have emerged that the talk show queen was also able to sit down with the three kids for their first-ever interview. “They are the greatest kids you’ll ever meet,” family friend Stephen Price said last year. “They didn’t act like they had silver spoons in their mouths. They are nice and not Hollywood brats. Paris is very polite, a little reserved. Prince is the most outgoing. And Blanket is a sharp kid, but also pretty quiet.”
The kids are scheduled to be called as witnesses in the manslaughter trial of their dad’s cardiologist, Dr. Conrad Murray, starting in January.
