How are Michael Jackson's children doing since the pop star's death this summer? The judge overseeing Jackson's estate said they are doing well.

"It looks like the children are really doing wonderfully with their grandmother guardian." said Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff.

According to the Associated Press:

The judge sealed a new report on the children, who range in ages from 7 to 12, and said he sees no need to get future updates. Michael Jackson chose Katherine Jackson in his 2002 will to care for his children, and a court has appointed her their permanent guardian. Nearly three months after the pop superstar's death, his estate began paying a $60,000 per month stipend to care for and protect them.

I think Michael chose the best guardian to look after his kids. Katherine seems to be a lovely person who always put her kids before herself.

RIP My hero I love you x

i love micheal jackson good whishes to him

i am glad that micheals chilren are all right and happy with there grandma. my name is joan and i miss micheal alot but he is with god and that makes me very happy.

i wouble love to meet the family and tell them that iam love their son and how sweet he was with child i really want to meet the family and tell them that iam a real fan of michael's music i really am going to miss him

I love these children, I love their father, GOOD PEOPLE, God bless these kids. Michael asked us in an interview he'd given in '05, "Pray for me. Pray for my children." We are, Michael. I can imagine how empty the kids must feel in his absence; a large & loving family like this is exactly what they need to feel this cradle of support, & in addition, to feel the same ethos their father experienced in a large family. God bless the children. What an elegant & well-mannered group of children, God bless Katherine & the entire family, every single one of the Jacksons, what beauty to be surrounded by cousins/uncles/aunts, such a strong foundation for these children. Rest in Peace, MICHAEL. You were a wonderful father & friend to these children. The world misses you. There will never be anyone to fill the vast space you left. This is why millions all over the world continue to look up articles & videos on you, to play your music day in & day out. You have always been part of us.
