Eyewitnesses also reported that the Rev. Jesse Jackson paid a visit to the Jackson house in Encino.

As for Michael Jackson’s children, Prince Michael, 12, Paris, 11, and “Blanket,” 7, “The kids are outside playing. Both Joe and Katherine are taking care of them right now,” according a source close to the family. “The kids haven’t spent a lot of time with Michael’s family, so they are just now getting to know all the cousins and other family members.”
