Michael Jackson’s mother Katherine spoke with Geraldo Rivera on FOX News Channel shortly after she was granted custody of the singer’s three children, Prince Michael, 12, Paris, 11 and Blanket, 7.
Asked about reports regarding Joe not being allowed to see the kids, Katherine said, “I don’t know why they’re saying he’s not allowed in the house. Joe is a good grandfather. The kids will tell you that.”
As for the circumstances regarding the King of Pop’s death, the 79-year-old said, “All I know is my son is dead – and I don’t think he died of natural causes or whatever. He’s too young to have that. Something happened. I don’t know what it was. And I can’t say.” Watch the interview at YouTube.

Michael Jackson’s Personal Chef On That Fateful Day
August 3, 2009 – Celebrity chef Kai Chase was Michael Jackson’s personal chef at the time of his death, and was preparing lunch for the King of Pop and his children on June 25th when the mood in the house turned grim. Chase writes at the Larry King Live Blog:
I instantly felt the energy in the house change. It was normally a warm, happy home. In an instant that feeling was gone. The mood became very unsettling. I tried to continue with my lunch preparations, but the house became chaotic. Security guards were rushing by, the housekeepers were crying, Paris was screaming “Daddy, Daddy”. The children knew something was very wrong. This was their father — the only person they have in the world. We weren’t told what was going on, but you could feel things were very bad. We eventually gathered everyone together in a circle — the three kids, all the staff — and we prayed. “God, please let everything be O.K. with Mr. Jackson.”
