Michael Jackson’s kids -- Paris, Prince and Blanket -- set off a flashbulb firestorm when they hit the red carpet with Aunt La Toya in L.A. Thursday night at a beverage launch party.
The conviction of Michael Jackson's doctor, Conrad Murray, caused a flurry of tweets from the entertainment community, including Jackson's sister, La Toya, Ryan Secrest, Nicki Minaj and others.
Sister La Toya felt vindicated, tweeting, "VICTORY!!!!!! Michael I love you and I will continue to fight until ALL are brought to justice! Thank you EVERYONE for your love and support! It will ALWAYS be appreciated!"
Famous big sis La Toya Jackson chatted with "Extra's" AJ Calloway about Michael Jackson's children, Prince Michael, 14, Paris, 13, and Blanket, 9.
La Toya says Paris has had conversations with her aunt about dating. "No, she's not dating. I have my little talks with her and she goes, 'Aunt La Toya, I know they're just after one thing!'"
Nearly two years after Michael Jackson's untimely death, his sister La Toya has released a new memoir, "Starting Over," in which she reveals that King of Pop was afraid he would be murdered over his multi-million dollar music publishing catalogue.
La Toya also addressed issues surrounding Dr. Conrad Murray, charged with involuntary manslaughter, and said the cardiologist was "evasive" and filled with excuses after her brother's overdose. The "Celebrity Apprentice" alum insisted there was something more sinister about MJ's death.
The children of the late Michael Jackson -- Prince, 14, Paris 13, and Blanket, 9 -- mugged for photographers and goofed around as they left an after-school drama class in Los Angeles.
Since their father died in June 2009, Jackson matriarch Katherine, 80, and the rest of the family are trying to give the children a more normal life, which includes their enrollment in school and signing them up for after-school activities.

La Toya Jackson talked with Barbara Walters about the loss of her brother Michael -- and how his three children are coping.
The 53-year-old told Walters her brother thought he would be murdered. She admitted, "When I found out he had actually passed, I said, 'No. I wasn't an accident. Michael was murdered.'"
"I don't think we'll find a person as talented, a person who thought the way he thought... a person with the heart that Michael had," La Toya lamented. "People aren't that way anymore. He was special. He wasn't God, but he was certainly god-like. He was the closest thing to a god that I knew."
Jackson was laid to rest last week at Forest Lawn cemetery in Glendale, Calif. La Toya said, "He was dressed in all white pearl beads going across, draped across... and a beautiful big gold belt." She also confirms the late superstar's makeup and hair were done "beautifully."
La Toya also explained that Michael's three children, now being raised by their grandmother Katherine, have a good relationship with grandfather Joe Jackson. "They love their grandfather," she said. "They... like the fact that he's very outspoken. And they say that, 'Grandpa, he tells you like it is.'" She added that Prince Michael, Paris and "Blanket" will continue home schooling.
Barbara Walters' interview with La Toya Jackson airs on "20/20" on Friday, Sept. 11.
