After Michael Jackson’s sudden passing, his three children “are doing fine,” says Brian Oxman, the Jackson family attorney for 20 years.
“They are in the care of a nanny,” he told Us magazine, adding that they’re staying with their grandmother, Katherine. “Ms. Jackson will care for them and I’m sure there will be all kinds of discussions that will take place about the kids.”
The children – Blanket, 7, Paris, 11, and Prince Michael, 12 – are “just beautiful,” Oxman said. “They’re well-trained, well educated and extraordinarily talented. They get to play with their cousins and their nieces and their nephews. They are just smarter than smart can be.”
(Paris and Prince Michael were born through artificial insemination when Michael was briefly wed to Debbie Rowe. Prince Michael Jackson II’s mother’s identity was never released.)
Oxmon told Us magazine that Jackson family members are still struggling to cope with the shocking loss.
“They are stunned,” Oxman said. “They are barely even able to speak about it.”
Oxman was with the family at the hospital (mother Katherine, brothers Randy and Jermaine, and sister LaToya, arrived separately at the hospital for vigil).
“They were silent, they were crying, they weren’t really able to say anything,” he said. “They just were stunned by this whole experience.”
Added Oxman, “I know that they are now all together.”
Thoughts and prayers to Michael’s family.
