Michael Jackson's sister LaToya said the late King of Pop's three children -- Prince 12, Paris, 11, and Blanket, 7 -- are in therapy to cope with the sadness after losing their father four months ago.

The outspoken LaToya told the Daily Mirror that all three children have taken different paths to cope with the pain of losing a parent.

"Prince just doesn't want to speak about it," she said. "I do worry about him very much."

Of Paris, LaToya said the girl "thinks and talks about her father all the time. She's doing very well, writes a lot and she wears his shirts every day -- they still smell of him, and it helps her feel close to him."

Little Blanket, according to aunt LaToya, is struggling.

He "is just a very sad, shy little boy," LaToya said. "He cries – he really does cry. It's so painful for him. No one can bring his daddy back and it hurts so much. They all go to therapy and I truly hope Prince especially will be able to open up."

Last week, caught up with Jackson's brother, Jermaine, who gave us a candid insight as to the children's upbringing from their father, the late King of Pop.

"Michael was very strong with them, very straightforward, he didn't just give them anything," Jermaine told "He disciplined them in a way they'll understand that you have to work hard to achieve anything."
