Michael Jackson's three children are set to break their silence in a candid chat with talk show queen Oprah Winfrey, according to a new report.
Winfrey visited the late singer's mother Katherine on Saturday (09Oct10) at her Encino, California home, where she interviewed the family matriarch, her husband Joe and took a tour of the property.
But new reports suggest Winfrey also sat down with other members of the family - Jackson's three children, Prince Michael, 13, Paris, 12, and eight-year-old Blanket.
The siblings, who have never been interviewed, are believed to have opened up about their famous dad for Winfrey, who is wrapping up the final season of her hit daytime show.
The episode is due to air in the coming weeks, according to the New York Daily News.
The Thriller star, who died last year (09), went to great lengths to keep his kids shielded from the spotlight, schooling them at home and covering their faces with masks and cloths in public.

Oprah didn't respect Michael Jackson. She is simply an opportunist. I wish her show were off the air already.

yeah. I hated her comments that he "shouldn't have been sleeping in the bed with those kids." And then she and the Presleys talked about him so bad on another episode. I hope Momma Jackson calls her out on that. When Oprah speaks, people listen. But what would be more powerful is if she would acknowledge to Mrs. Jackson and to the world during this interview that she was wrong for what she said and did. Even acknowledge that she MAY have prejudged him. If she doesn't, I will have even less respect for her.

I am outraged! I can't believe these kids are going to be subjected to Oprah Winfrey. Michael must be screaming!! How can Katherine & Joe allow this? The only thing Winfrey should be saying to those children is how sorry she is for participating in the media trashing of their father. Oprah has reached a new low.

Sadly but sensible, the reason why MJ secluded his children was because he was not permitted to go ANYWHERE in public without having his privacy revoked by fans or media. As any parent, he protected and shielded his children from the public too. Since MJ's murder, his children will be able to have an almost more normal life than MJ did because fans or media will not be as inevasive to kids as with Michael. Before we attack Oprah, remember Mrs. Jackson raised Michael, and she would never authorize anything that would be harmful or unwanted to her own children or grandchildren.

That is true about Ms Winfrey. In th Fan collection DVD set that I have she ask about the plastic surgery that he had done on his nose and about the color of his skin if he was bleach it, and he said that he only had he nose done, and if you want to know about anything else get his book Moonwalker it will tell you everything you want to know, and not to listen to the press. She said she did not like that answer from his , but I think Michael did the right thing in telling her that, She also said that there should have been a chair for Michael she know Ms Talyor was coming to the interview, Mchael was standing while Ms Winfrey was talked to Ms Taylor and that was just rude to do that. Michael the kind person that he was just stood there. I feel that the kids should not have been interview by Ms Winfrey at all. Michael would not let this be done at all. Miss you M.J.

@WBL... I disagree with you - Katherine, much as we all love her, did not do a very good job of shielding Michael from the dangers of the meda did she? I am doubtful of the wisdom of Katherine speaking to Oprah, let alone allowing the children to do so. Before his death the children were hardly ever captured on film by the Paps... now we see their pictures everywhere and details of what they are doing and who with has become public knowledge. Michael would never approve of this, and particularly as the interview is with Oprah! The Jackson family seems to think celebrity status is all that matters. Michael learned the hard way how hazardous such a life can be - and now they are trying to make celbrities out of the children now too.

Oprah Winfrey is despicable. She was one of the worst critics of Michael Jackson. How could they even let her into their lives much less interview his children. I never cared for Oprah Winfrey but this seals my idea of her. She is totally disingenuous, dishonest, fake and phony. I hope Katherine Jackson knows what she is doing and pre-screens all of Oprah's questions before airing this interview. It truly makes me ill to know Oprah is going to do this.
