As if to brace themselves for the emotional first anniversary of their father’s death, Michael Jackson’s children, Prince, Paris, and Blanket, escaped with their grandmother Katherine to Maui, reports People.com.
Spending a day on the island playing in the water, the three kids tried to enjoy the time away. Although her two brothers seemed to be making the best of it, Paris was seen to be having a noticeably difficult time.
A source close to the Jackson family says,”Early on, Paris didn’t think she could live without her father … she just didn’t know how she was going to function. But [Katherine] has been so supportive of her that Paris is much better.”
The source says, “You have to remember that everybody in that family was suffering from grief, so Michael’s kids never felt alone in it,” continuing, “That helped them to become stronger.”
The family is schedule to be in Gary, Indiana on Friday afternoon, where a monument honouring Michael Jackson will be unveiled outside of the home where the singer grew up.
