It was a sad day when news broke  iconic pop star Michael Jackson died in his Los Angeles home June 25, 2009, at the age of 50. Nearly a year after his death, an official coroner's report on Jackson's cause of death was released, revealing the singer had died from acute propofol intoxication, and his personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, who was not licensed to prescribe the drug, gave it to him, apparently to help Jackson sleep.

Jackson’s death was ruled a homicide; Murray was found guilty Nov. 7, 2011, and sentenced to four years in prison. The singer survived by three children: Michael Joseph Jackson, Paris-Michael Katherine Jackson and Prince Michael “Blanket” Jackson II. After his death, Jackson’s mother, Katherine, became the legal guardian of his children. Because Jackson’s kids remained out of the spotlight for a while, many are unfamiliar with them. Below is a brief profile of Jackson’s children.

Michael Joseph Jackson Jr.

Michael Jr., 19, who was the late pop star's first child, was only 12 when his father died.  He was born on Feb. 12, 1997, in Los Angeles. His biological mother, Debbie Rowe, was the former wife of his dad. Michael Jr. graduated from the Buckley School in Sherman Oaks, California, in May 2015. In 2013, he served as a guest correspondent for the entertainment news television show, Entertainment Tonight. He interviewed James Franco, Zach Braff and director Sam Raimi about their film, “Oz the Great and Powerful.” He appeared to have found his niche, telling "Entertainment Tonight" he was "looking to become well-rounded as a producer, director, screenwriter and actor."

Jackson Jr. currently attends Loyola Marymount College in Los Angeles.

According to a report by, Paris was hospitalized after she "cut her wrists with a kitchen knife and took as many as 20 ibuprofen tablets." She underwent treatment after her suicide attempt.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Paris said she was sexually assaulted by a complete stranger who was older than her when she was just 14.

“I don’t wanna give too many details. But it was not a good experience at all, and it was really hard for me, and, at the time, I didn’t tell anybody,” she said.

By 2015, Paris began dating soccer player Chester Castellaw, but they broke up that same year. Now, Paris is dating Michael Snoddy, whose Confederate flag tattoo made headlines on numerous of media outlets.
