Michael Jackson's Children: We Had "Secluded" Childhood

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Michael Jackson's three children had a "secluded" childhood when the King of Pop was raising them, they admit in a rare new interview with ABC News.

Prince Michael, 16, Paris, 15, and Blanket, 11 are opening up about their lives with their famous dad in a new documentary Remembering Michael.

They had little idea of what went on outside the walls of Neverland, and to hear Paris Jackson tell it, that was largely by design, as Michael saw fit.

"There are a lot of bad people out there ... [but he] always wanted a taste normal life," she said, for better or worse. "We didn't know a lot of kids our age."

"We were more secluded, we never left the ranch that often."

"He promised he would teach me how to moonwalk but never got around to it. I really hope his legacy lives on forever. I will never forget him ever. He was amazing."

Meanwhile, eldest son Prince Jackson said he didn't even know his father's name until he was six years old because he led such a sheltered lifestyle.

The teenager said: "He never really wanted to tell us who he is as a person. It took me until I was six years old to learn his name was Michael Jackson."

"He was always Daddy to me and that was it."

Even young Blanket, who is normally shielded from the media, recalls that "sometimes I would go in his room and watch videos of him dancing."

Watch the clip above for footage of the children speaking out in advance of the new documentary, which should provide a rare glimpse into their lives.

Typical response from a hypocrite who THINKS he is smart. It's so swell to comment on things you are ignorant of. Look at yourselves in the mirror ,before you make such STUPID comments. The only mistake MJ made was not to have made a sex tape with he and Debbie , or invite you biggots in the room while he was making out with her.

They are like trained puppets rehashing the same thing over and over. Guess what? Lots of people lose loved ones every day and they do not have a big fat inheritance to look forward to, nor are they coddled by maids, cooks and nannies. They need to give it a rest already. So sick of these purchased children and their attempts at trying to prove how great this freak was. They would be better off finding their real fathers and stop trying to be something they are not.
