Michael Jackson’s Kids: How Are They Doing Now?

Michael Jackson's Kids: How Are They Doing Now?

As the two-and-a-half year anniversary of Michael Jackson‘s death approaches, The King of Pop’s kids are moving forward, with bright promise for all three.

Prince, 14, Paris, 13, and 9 year-old Blanket recently attended a taping of The X Factor, checked out the Las Vegas opening of Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour by Cirque du Soleil and the Michael Jackson Fan Fest memorabilia exhibit. They are all keeping pretty busy and, “They’re doing well,” their uncle Marlon tells People.

Paris even recently landed her first acting role in the film Lundon’s Bridge and The Three Keys.

The kids’ grandmother Katherine can also be credited for much of their well-being. She has been raising the three since their father’s death. “My grandmother is 81, but she’s very hands-on,” says their first cousin Genevieve, Randy’s daughter.

Despite Jackson’s estate continuing to amass a fortune ($445 million in the past two years) and their immense trust fund – reportedly multi-million dollars for each when they turn 30 – the kids are apparently leading relatively normal lives.

After years of home-schooling, Prince and Paris now attend a private school. “They love the social aspect of it,” says a family insider, adding Prince is “a great student” and “really popular with the girls.” Paris, meanwhile, plays on the boys’ flag-football team but isn’t dating. Explains the insider: “She’s got too many uncles keeping an eye on her.”

Shy baby brother Blanket, whose real name is Prince Michael II, is schooled at their seven-bedroom Calabasas, Calif. home, where he’s also been getting an education in baking. “He likes cooking,” says the insider. “He’ll make cakes and cupcakes. The staff chef helps him.”

But the real passion for all three kids is continuing in their father’s entertainment legacy. While Paris is now focused on acting, her brothers are interested in the big screen. “Prince and Blanket want to be directors,” says Genevieve, a music artist. “They make home movies together and recruit their cousins to act in them.” She adds, “The cousins are all very close.”

Having that bond is how the Jackson 3 remain grounded, says their uncle Jackie. “They stay with the family. That’s what it’s about. We keep a close watch on them.”

    Better now that they are eating and growing and socializing and not walking around wearing mask.

    Same type of comments on nearly every article about these babies. Always the paternity or Michael’s parenting. I wonder if these people know that regardless of what they think of these kids or Michael, the latter still have more talent in a finger than any of them have in their lives. Not to mention they make in one month what people make in multiple years. Deal with it.

    LOVE MPPB!! <3 <3

      Michael Jackson is deceased so he currently does not have any talent. And the children are not his biologically so they could not have inherited his talent.

        Shame on you. That’s all you want to focus on? These are three bright, lovely kids who have their whole futures ahead of you, and all you care about is that you don’t think they’re Michael’s biological children. Why does it matter? They were loved, and they loved him. THE END.

      When was he again convicted of child molestation? Three juries , 2 in LA and 1 in Santa Barbara found no evidence to convict him for anything, Those were false allegation and the extortion attempts. Please get the facts before you start making and continuing spreading such lies. If anybody is going to burn in hell will be his accusers who already sold their soul to the devil by selling their stories and making money of Michael.

      Where is your proof of this? The FBI files is hundreds of pages thick and they found NO EVIDENCE. Read through some of what’s posted on the web. Most of the claims were unfounded. There was zero evidence on him. So before you go calling a man who was found innocent of all counts in court a child molester, back up your claims with some proof. There is none. The first case with the settlement was against Michael’s wishes. He allowed himself to be photographed naked in a strip search. Would he have allowed that if he was guilty? The first boy inaccurately described his privates as well, but I guess you chose to ignore that. In fact, the proseuction in 2005 wanted the pictures banned in the court room, because they knew that it would show that the 1993 accuser was absolutely inaccurate and lying.

    @Joe why don’t u go trash Jerry Sandusky instead of trashing a dead person who is not around to defend themselves . I don’t see anyone slamming Sandusky name in the mud or attacking his kids .Is a matter of fact I don’t even the media bashing him .No b/c that would wrong and unfair to do that to jerry , but when it comes to poor Michael it different story

      Thank you. Michael Jackson was vindicated in a court of law, and if people would actually read the facts and the court transcripts, they’d see exactly WHY he was vindicated. Because he was innocent, and there was abosolutely zero proof against him.

      Just because people think one thing about Michael does not mean they should use that against his children. For goodness sakes, they are CHILDREN.
