Jackson's mum is kids' guardian

Katherine and Paris Jackson

Michael Jackson's mum Katherine is to look after the singer's children Prince Michael, Paris and Prince Michael II.

Earlier reports had suggested that Katherine would become the children's new parent, and now a court in America has confirmed the news.

The court also said that Prince Michael and Paris' mum - a lady called Debbie Rowe - will be allowed to visit them.

No-one knows who the mum of Prince Michael II is, as Jackson never revealed her name.

The three children have been staying with Katherine Jackson since their father's death on 25 June.
