LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Following Michael Jackson’s tragic sudden death on Thursday, many wondered about the state of the singer’s three children. According to Brian Oxman, an attorney for the Jackson family, they “are doing fine.”
“They are in the care of a nanny,” Oxman told Us Weekly. “Ms. Jackson (Michael’s mother, Katherine) will care for them and I’m sure there will be all kinds of discussions that will take place about the kids.”
Oxman said Jackson’s three children are “just beautiful. “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.”
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Prince Michael Jackson II (sometimes known as Blanket), 7, Paris, 11, and Prince Michael, 12 gathered with the Jackson family at the home of Joe and Katherine Jackson in Encino, California following their father’s death.
Michael Jackson died at age 50 after a brief hospitalization on Thursday, the Los Angeles Coroner’s office confirmed on Thursday. According to the Coroner’s office, Michael was already in full cardiac arrest when the paramedics arrived at his Holmby Hills home on Thursday afternoon.
An autopsy will be conducted on Friday morning, with initial results coming later that day and a toxicology report following several weeks later.
