Michael Jackson's eldest son, Prince Michael Jackson, was dragged unmercifully on Twitter.com for his cavalier comment about Black Lives Matter.

Social justice activists came for Prince's neck when he tweeted: "I understand that you want to focus on #blacklivesmatter but why only focus on one life that matters when all do?"

Prince Jackson

Unlike Prince Hakeem of Zamunda, Michael Jackson's son Prince Jackson works for a living. 16-year-old Prince was seen leaving his job after working the day shift at a fast food joint in a strip mall in Beverly Hills, California. The 3 Jackson children can't touch their multimillion dollar inheritance left to them by their father until they are 18. Which means Prince will be punching his time card until February 13, 2015.

Paris Jackson

Michael Jackson's 15-year-old daughter, Paris Jackson, is doing fine after possibly attempting suicide early this morning. TMZ reports that Paris was taken out of her grandmother, Katherine's Calabasas, CA home on a stretcher around 2 a.m. Wednesday.

"Paris is physically fine and is getting appropriate medical attention," said Katherine Jackson's attorney, Perry Sanders, in a statement to TMZ.

"Being a sensitive 15 year old is difficult no matter who you are. It is especially difficult when you lose the person closest to you," said Sanders.

Paris Jackson

Remember when Michael Jackson's daughter Paris Jackson was considered to be black because her biological father is a black man? Well those days are over.

According to numerous published reports, Paris, 15, has abandoned the black side of her family and now spends most of her time with her biological mother, Debbie Rowe. They say Paris hardly ever sees her paternal grandmother, Katherine Jackson anymore. Katherine, 82, has joint custody, with Michael's nephew, TJ, of Paris and her 2 brothers, Prince Michael, 16, and Blanket, 11.

Paris Jackson

Jackson family matriarch Katherine Jackson, 82, raised all 8 of her children to be Jehovah's Witnesses. Even at the peak of his fame, superstar Michael Jackson continued going door-to-door spreading the scripture and handing out copies of The Watchtower. But Michael, who did not observe holidays or birthdays as a child, broke with religious tradition by treating his own children to lavish birthday parties at his Neverland ranch.

When Katherine Jackson took custody of Michael's kids, Paris, 15, Prince Michael, 16, and Blanket, 11, after Michael's untimely death in 2009, the children attended meetings in Kingdom Hall with Mrs. Jackson, went door-to-door as their father did, and encouraged their friends to convert to Jehovah's Witnesses.

The King of Pop, Michael Jackson, was finally laid to rest last night more than two months after he died at age 50 of an apparent cardiac arrest on June 25th. Jackson was interred in a crypt alongside Hollywood legends such as Clark Gable, Marilyn Monroe, David Carradine, Sammy Davis Jr., and others following a private sunset ceremony at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California.

The guests were limited to family members and close friends, including Berry Gordy, who signed 10-year-old Michael and his brothers to a recording contract in the late 60s, and Gladys Knight, who discovered the Jackson 5. Knight sang "His Eye Is On The Sparrow" at the ceremony.

Others attending the funeral included Michael's friends music producers Quincy Jones and Teddy Riley, actors McCauley Culkin, Elizabeth Taylor, Corey Feldman, Clifton Davis (who sang the Jackson 5 hit "Never Can Say Goodbye" -- a song he wrote); actress LisaRaye, comedian Chris Tucker, industry veteran Suzanne de Passe, the Jackson 5's road manager and mentor; Lisa Marie Presley, one of Jackson's former wives, the Rev. Al Sharpton, and others. Jackson's longtime friend Diana Ross did not attend.

Michael's brothers Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon, Randy, and the two boys Michael raised as his own -- Prince Michael I and Michael II., all wore black suits with red ties, black arm bands and a single white sequined glove. The funeral was delayed over two months due to a rift between Michael's mother Katherine and his brother Jermaine over the final burial plans.

This story made headlines all over the world this weekend, and by Sunday morning, the sleuths over at People mag were on top of it. It turns out that former British child star Mark Lester was being the attention whore and opportunist that we all thought he was when he laid claim to Michael Jackson's kid, Paris Michael Katherine Jackson, saying the 11-year-old was his biological daughter.

Lester told a British tabloid over the weekend that he donated sperm for his longtime friend Michael Jackson so he could start his own family. It seems Michael was enamored with Lester's 4 blond haired, blue eyed children and wanted some of his own to raise.

Now Lester's reps are saying the tabloid twisted his words. Yeah, right.

Sources say that while Lester had donated sperm, he is not Paris' biological dad. "They twisted his words around. He's not claiming to be the father of Paris Jackson," says one close family source. "He has known Michael for many years and his children play with Michael's children," says longtime Jackson family associate and past lawyer Brian Oxman. But in all the years he has known Lester, Oxman says Lester never indicated he was Paris's father.

Us Weekly reports that the L.A. County coroner returned Michael Jackson's brain to his family last week and he was buried in an intimate ceremony last Thursday at Forest Lawn cemetery.

Will the circus atmosphere surrounding Jackson never end?

According to TMZ.com, a California judge has just named Michael Jackson's mother Katherine Jackson permanent guardian over the 3 children her son raised since birth.

Katherine will also receive 83.5% of the monthly allowance she had requested for the children's support and maintenance. The exact amount wasn't discussed in open court.

The judge gave the order after stifling objections from Debbie Rowe's attorney. Rowe's attorney had asked the judge to delay granting permanent guardianship to Jackson today. Earlier, Rowe and Katherine Jackson reached a custody agreement outside of court for the two kids she gave birth to.

Rowe, 50, and Michael Jackson entered into a bizarre agreement in 1996 to provide children for him in exchange for millions of dollars in spousal support. The two were briefly married, but Rowe told friends they never consummated their marriage. Rowe has admitted she was artificially inseminated.

Rowe and Jackson were granted a divorce in October 1999 and Rowe recived an $8-million settlement. The judge ruled today that she will continue to receive payments under the settlement. Rowe was also granted visitation rights.

Jackson died at age 50 on June 25 after suffering a cardiac arrest. His death has been ruled a homicide and is under investigation by local and federal authorities.

The kids Prince Michael, 12, Paris Katherine, 11, and Blanket, 7, whose mother is unknown, will be be raised mainly by Katherine and Joe Jackson's eldest daughter Rebbie. The children will continue to live with Katherine on her sprawling Hayvenhurst estate in Encino, California where Michael and his siblings were raised in the 70s.

Former British child star Mark Lester recently spent some time with Michael Jackson's three children following the emotional public memorial for Michael in L.A.

Lester, 50, who flew over from London where he resides with his own four children, is Godfather to Prince Michael I, 12, Paris Katherine, 11, and Prince Michael II, aka Blanket, 7. Lester and Jackson were friends for 30 years before Jackson passed away after suffering a heart attack on June 25.

Lester told RadarOnline.com that the children Jackson raised as his own are sorting through their grief in their own unique ways.

"The kids seemed to be coping quite well and they are surrounded by their family right now," said Lester. "They are very polite and quite quiet kids and despite all the publicity surrounding them and their family they are trying to keep things as normal as possible at home."

He said, Paris "loves to draw and paint and has been spending a lot of time with those hobbies" while Prince "loves playing video games to try and keep occupied." As for Blanket, he is "like most seven-year old kids who simply loves to play with his favorite toys and run around a little 'crazy' at times."

"They are getting strength from each other and the other family members that are supporting them while the whole family mourns Michael's death," Lester added. "I actually got strength from them after Michael's death and I think it was very important for Paris to speak at the Memorial service."

In 1968 Lester was chosen from among 2,000 young hopefuls to star in the Oscar Award winning musical adaptation of the Charles Dickens novel Oliver!. He became an overnight sensation when he uttered the immortal line, "Please, sir, can I have some more?"

Michael Jackson's sister LaToya Jackson has concerns about Michael's former nanny, Grace Rwaramba, who worked for Jackson for 17 years until she was fired in 2008.

Rwaramba was the only nanny Jackson's three children -- Prince Michael, 12, Paris Katherine, 11, and Blanket, 7, -- ever knew until her employment was terminated by Jackson. But she's back in the fold now after Michael's mom Katherine Jackson invited her to visit the children.

A judge granted Michael's mom Katherine temporary custody of the kids after the King of Pop died suddenly of a cardiac arrest on June 25.

"The family has mixed feelings about her," LaToya told British newspaper The Mail on Sunday. "Mother says [Grace] wants to be with the kids but I warned her to be careful. It's not like the children like or dislike her. They like everyone. Mother is gullible and feels sorry for her."

LaToya said Rwaramba just showed up one day to see the kids and she never left.

"I have a lot of questions about Grace," said LaToya, who is convinced her brother was murdered by people in his trusted inner circle. "She was instrumental in keeping the family away. All of a sudden she is back, listening and watching the family. I think her behaviour is odd."

To those of who who are still in denial about the paternity of Michael Jackson's Caucasian children: don't pick up tomorrow's issue of US Weekly magazine.

From US Weekly:

Michael Jackson celebrated his final Christmas with his three children -- and with dermatologist Arnold Klein, the biological father of Paris, 11, and Prince Michael I, 12. Us Weekly reports in its new issue (on newsstands tomorrow) that Klein brought Star Wars icon Carrie Fisher, a close friend, as a surprise guest for the kids to Jackson's $100,000-a-month Holmby Hills, Calif. rental.

Fellow guest Stephen Price, a close friend of Klein's, tells Us Weekly that Jackson had mentioned to Klein that Paris, Prince and Prince Michael II (a.k.a. "Blanket"), 7, were fans of Star Wars and would like to meet Fisher.

As for Klein, who had employed Paris and Prince's mother, Debbie Rowe, for 23 years, Price would only say "no comment" about his longtime pal's status as their biological dad.

Oh, and the youngest kid, Blanket, doesn't look a bit like Michael. Stop imagining things. Michael wanted Caucasian children to raise as his own. He wouldn't have it any other way.

X17online.com sent their paparazzi airborne in a helicopter to capture the first pics of Joseph Michael Jackson Jr., aka Prince, 13, the eldest of the three children Jackson raised as his own.

Last week a judge granted Michael's mom Katherine Jackson, 79, temporary guardianship over Prince and his siblings Paris-Michael Katherine, 9, and Prince Michael II, 7, aka Blanket.

The three kids are with Mrs. Jackson at the Encino mansion where Michael grew up after moving from Gary, Indiana.

According to TMZ.com, Prince and Paris' biological mother, Debbie Rowe, is making noise about fighting for custody of the kids she once said she didn't want. The identity of Blanket's biological mother is unknown.

Prince's urban street style is drastically different from the nerdy way Jackson used to dress him.

Michael Jackson's mother and temporary administrator of his estate is in possession of a will Jackson drew up three weeks before he died.

The will was handed over to Katherine Jackson by Michael's attorney John Branco today. Jackson had a net worth of $200 million when he died of a heart attack last Thursday.

In the will, Michael left everything to his mother and the three children he raised as his own. Jackson's father, who forced his children to call him "Joseph" all their lives, gets nothing.

A California judge today granted Katherine Jackson's petition for temporary custody of the three children her late son, pop icon Michael Jackson, raised as his own.

Jackson's ex-wife Debbie Rowe, biological mother of the two eldest children, was served with a notice. A hearing is set for next Monday, according to TMZ.com.

The petition stated Debbie Rowe had no relationship with the children.

Meanwhile, a lawyer who was terminated from Jackson's employ in 2006, suddenly popped back up three weeks ago. Attorney John Branca claims to be in possession of Jackson's last will and testament, and he plans to file the will in court in 30 days.

According to TMZ.com, Jackson's parents Katherine and Joseph Jackson aren't aware of any such will. Katherine filed a petition to be named administrator of Jackson's estate. In the petition, Katherine Jackson stated her son had no will.
