LOS ANGELES - Michael Jackson's three kids are in therapy to cope with the sudden loss of the only parent they ever knew, LaToya Jackson says.
The King of Pop's gabby sister said Prince, 12, is keeping his feelings bottled up while Paris , 11, wears her dad's clothes and Blanket, 7, cries often.
" Paris thinks and talks about her father all the time," she told London 's Mirror newspaper. "She's doing very well, writes a lot and she wears his shirts every day. They still smell of him and it helps her feel close to him. Her bedroom is covered in posters of Michael."
While Paris watches tapes of her dad all the time, Prince "just walks right past the TV," she said.
"Prince just doesn't want to speak about it," she said. "It's too soon, too touching. I do worry about him very much."
The youngest is having the hardest time, his aunt said.
"Blanket is just a very sad, shy little boy. He cries - he really does cry. It's so painful for him. No one can bring his daddy back and it hurts so much," said LaToya, 53. "They all go to therapy and I truly hope Prince especially will be able to open up."
Michael Jackson died June 25 from a drug overdose ruled a homicide. A movie chronicling his last few months of concert rehearsals opens in theaters this week.
LaToya said her 79-year-old mom Katherine, the kids' legal guardian, is trying to raise the kids as Michael would have wanted, even planning a lavish Christmas party that's against her Jehovah's Witness religion.
"They still have the same nannies, so it's the same routine," LaToya said. "They don't watch TV apart from the Disney Channel and Nickelodeon and only for two hours a day."
洛杉磯報導－Latoya Jackson說，MJ的三個子女目前正在接受心理治療, 試著適應突然失去他們最深愛的唯一親人。
‘Paris 經常想起和談到父親’...Latoya告訴倫敦的鏡報，‘她還不錯，一直在寫東西，經常穿父親的衣服，因為毛衣服上面有他（MJ）的味道，這樣可以讓她感覺她能離他更近。她的房間內全是Michael的海報。(好可憐, 好痛心!)
Paris一直在看父親的錄影帶，但是Prince只是‘從電視機前路過’ (這個更加痛心, 他其實比妹妹更傷心, 他是很愛Michael 的, 也許是因為長子, 也許是因為哥哥和男孩子)
Blanket非常傷心，他是個害羞的小孩。 他哭，而且哭的很厲害。對他來說，這真的很痛心。沒人能讓他的爸爸回來了，這點讓他很傷心。 他們都去接受心理治療，我特別希望Prince能夠把情緒釋放出來。(這是真的!否則影響很深遠)
他們還是有保姆在照看他們，他們的生活節奏沒有改變。他們除了迪士尼頻道和Nickelodeon (Nickelodeon Kid 全美收視率最高的兒童頻道）外，其他電視都不看，而且每天只看2小時電視。
