Michael Jackson's children 'doing wonderfully,' judge says

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.
