Michael Jackson’s eldest kids – Prince Michael (13) and Paris (12) – are attending The Buckley School in the San Fernando Valley of California, and the children aren’t making friends easily. Fellow peers find the famous children’s bodyguards “intimidating.”
“The bodyguard situation really is a bit intimidating to other kids,” a source said. “And that makes them hesitant to approach Prince and Paris.”
Paris and Prince are escorted to their classes, lockers and are watched over during lunch time. No wonder other classmates find it intimidating!
One of Michael’s brothers, Jermaine Jackson, encouraged Katherine – the children’s legal guardian – to allow Paris and Prince to experience the world.
Lionel Richie, one of Michael’s friends, believes the children have a better chance of a normal life without the King of Pop hiding them from the world.
“I think they have a better chance now,” he said. “I think they have a better opportunity to live a normal life. “It’s hard to be Michael Jackson’s kids because you’re out and it’s you with Michael Jackson, and he was larger than life.”
