Jackson's mum to look after kids

Paris and Prince Michael II Jackson with Katherine Jackson

Michael Jackson's mum has been told she can look after his children full-time, according to reports.

A lawyer for Katherine Jackson told American TV that Prince Michael, 12, Paris, 11 and Prince Michael II, seven will be raised by their grandmother.

He also said Debbie Rowe, the mother of the singer's two oldest children, will be able to visit them.

In 2002, Michael said in a legal document that he wanted his mother to care for the children if he died.

Meanwhile, officials looking into the singer's death have said the results of an medical examination have been delayed.

They will now be made public next week.
