A fatal dose of the anesthetic Propofol led to the demise of Michael Jackson, and Dr. Conrad Murray will be tried for involuntary manslaughter as a result.

Part of Murray's defense may be Jackson pressuring, even begging him for drugs. While this story is separate, it may speak to MJ's power of persuasion.

The Late King of Pop

According to a TMZ report, Michael subjected one of his kids - Blanket - to the same kind of risky, unorthodox medical treatment that later killed him.

In 2008, Michael reportedly cajoled a Las Vegas dentist into performing a procedure on Blanket in which he was put under anesthesia for two hours in a dental office.

An office that did not have the necessary permit for anesthesia.

The Nevada Board of Dental Examiners kept records of MJ's interactions with Dr. Mark Tadrissi, who initially refused to work on Blanket due to the lack of permit.

According to the Board's investigator, MJ didn't want to hear about permits and told the doctor, "Have an anesthesiologist do whatever type of sedation required."

Katherine Jackson, the mother of the late Michael Jackson and the guardian of his three children, is about to clean house in more ways than one.

Renovations are being done and people are getting kicked out.

Prince Michael, Paris Jackson

Everyone is moving out of the Jackson compound in Encino, Calif., while the house undergoes extensive renovations. Some won't be returning.

PERSONA NON GRATA: That's Alejandra Jackson (left) with ex Jermaine.

Katherine Jackson and company are in the process of packing boxes and will leave the family home in early December for several months during remodeling.

The reason this is significant is that after the "stun gun" incident in March, when Jaafar Jackson tried to taser Blanket, Katherine wanted the teenager out.

More specifically, she wanted Alejandra Jackson and her four kids - two with Jermaine and two with Randy Jackson (yup, it's weird) - to beat it for good.

Fans worried about Michael Jackson's kids after watching Katherine Jackson on Oprah need not worry. They will not suffer the child abuse their father did.

Katherine, Michael's mother and now the legal guardian of his children Prince Michael, Paris and Blanket, does not believe in physical discipline. Period.

Vintage MJ

Joe Jackson beat Michael and basically said he'd do it again, but Katherine corrects Paris, Prince and Blanket by talking to them. What a wild concept.

Prince, Paris and Blanket at the memorial service for Michael Jackson. The King of Pop was peerless musically, but felt his children were his greatest legacy.

Moreover, Katherine will not let Joe be involved in any disciplinary situations when it comes to the youngsters, so he won't lay a hand on MJ's kids.

Joe admitted to Oprah he whipped Michael with a strap, which he justified by saying that none of the couple's nine children had ever been to jail.

This wasn't exactly news, since his abusive past is common knowledge, but the bluntness and lack of regret was unsettling to many Michael fans.

In any case, it turns out discipline is not a high priority at the Jackson compound ... because Michael's kids are incredibly well-behaved anyway.

It's been almost a year since their famous father's death, and Michael Jackson's children have understandably attracted a great deal of attention in that time.

We've seen them at his memorial service, the Grammy Awards and on YouTube. But who are they really? They're unique individuals, each a bit like their dad.

At 13, Prince Michael Jackson is, in the words of family, "very smart" and an aspiring filmmaker. A year younger, Paris Jackson is "the strongest" of the three.

That's according to their grandmother and guardian, Katherine Jackson, who recently opened up to London's Daily Mirror about caring for the star's children.

Their baby brother Blanket (real name Prince Michael Jackson II) is, well, a baby brother. His uncle, Jermaine Jackson, says he's a water-gun-toting prankster.

"As soon as you turn your back," he told London's Sun of Blanket, who his own son was accused of trying to taser, "he shoots you and you're left soaking wet."

While Katherine Jackson recently said the home-schooled Prince, Paris and Blanket "don't have any friends" she says they're going to school come September.

In a separate interview with the Associated Press, Katherine Jackson's lawyer Adam Streisand noted only that Prince Michael would be heading off to school.

But deep down, they're pretty regular kids, just like MJ wanted. They're upbeat, they're into video games, movies, karate, and just playing with each other.

If you caught Blanket going bonkers with his light saber moves YouTube, you already know he's come out of his shell a bit. His older siblings are no different.

The children are thriving, and what is often overlooked is how Michael Jackson, who lacked a real childhood himself, raised these three without mothers.

Perhaps he was more human than people gave him credit for being.

"The kids are happy," said their godfather and Michael's friend Mark Lester, the former child actor of Oliver! fame. "Things are settling down. That's good."
