Katherine Jackson admits: M.J.'s kids "don't have any friends"



Paris-Jackson--left--Prin-080709.jpgSome sad news on the lives of Michael Jackson's children is revealed in a new interview in British tabloid The Mirror. The saddest revelation: "They don't have any friends," Katherine Jackson, the children's caretaker, told the newspaper.

Daughter Paris, 12, has turned bedroom into a shrine to "Daddy," the Mirror says. She and brothers Prince, 13, and Blanket, 8, spend hours listening to M.J.'s songs.

But things are about to change: Michael Jackson's kids are going to be sent to private school in September.

"They don't go to school, they have private lessons at home - but that will change in September, when they are due to enroll at private college," Katherine said. "But they have their cousins and aunts and uncles around them constantly, and that's helped them immensely."

Among the other things we learn in the interview:

  • Paris is beginning to show real music talent. She plays the piano, is an artist and wants to pursue acting.
  • Prince wants to produce movies.
  • "Blanket is very playful, like Michael was," Katherine said.
  • M.J. never told his kids he was a big star or even what he did until they attended a show in New York celebrating his 30 years as an entertainer.
