Hi everyone,

I have posted a quick comment about this before during a different thread but not in any detail. I'm really sorry if it's been discussed before but as many of you know I have a problem with my memory! long story!

Anyway, I understand that Mark Lester has completely discredited himself over the paternity allegations but I believe that this comment from Blanket is genuine.


Now all of us here KNOW that Michael is an amazing daddy and will have prepared his children for life; and the ups and downs it can bring. I think that at 7, Michael would definitely have explained death to Blanket and therefore his comment about the vacation is probably because he has been told that his daddy is on vacation - (because he is!) not that he just doesn't understand about death!

I home school my children to protect them but I still make sure they understand about life, death etc and I'm sure Michael would have too.

I'm sure that all 3 children were told about (prepared for) this hoax and the older 2 are able to understand but Blanket has got a little confused and therefore asked this question.

I really do see this as a great sign of proof for the hoax theory! We know that Michael would not pretend to be dead to the children as that is not the type of person he is. I just think that Blanket (because of his age) has got a little confused, bless him!

@PinkLizzard.

You are right. Even though Blanket is a baby, he is old enough to know what the word "Dead" means.

Like we have been told, (wich I believe is pure BS) The children saw Michael at the Hospital, and in his casket at forrest lawn.

Now im thinking, If Blanket saw his Daddy there, why would he ask if he is on vacation? I mean, no one would tell a child that, it would make him think that his Daddy would come back soon. It would be to let him down completely, if it wasent true.

Im sure the children knows that Michael is alive, but he needs to rest, and feel like its safe. Then the children will join him.

Ofcause Blanket is getting confused, he is 7 years old. He is used to have his Daddy around him all the time.

My heart and prayers are with the children.

(Kisses Baby Blanket on the cheek, wiping away his tears. Please dont cry baby, im here.)

Thanks MyBelovedMJ - I get loads of comfort from Blanket saying this because it really does point to MJ being alive Smile

Should I add a joke about a 'comfort blanket' here! lol! or do we only have those in the uk?!

BelovedMJ......Because of Blankets age, I really do not think they would have allowed him to see his dead father lying there lifeless..either at the hospital or FL. He may know a LITTLE about death but I think to see his father like that wouldve been very damaging since he is only 7.

I know.

I dont think, either of the children saw him lying dead anywhere.

But no matter what, you would NOT tell a child, that their parent was on vacation, if the parent died. You would have too tell the child the truth.

Even though its a hard one to tell a 7 year old, they kinda had to.

Well youre right. I personally wouldnt have said that he was on vacation, becasue then he is going to expect him back.
A child of that age, you may want to say he had an accident and isnt coming back. But it really depends on wether the child understands death or not.

I just want to say this, I have a friend whose 7 year old child just lost their grandparent and understood completely that the grandparent had died. At 7 years of age a child understands the concept of death and knows that it is not a vacation. Why are they making it seem as though Blanket is much to young to be able to understand what has happened? When my grandmother died, my daughter was only 5 and understood. She never asked when she was coming back. I don't know if this is typical behaviour at that age or if I was just fortunate that she grasped the concept but Blanket's statement makes absolutely no sense to me.

Also, wasn't Michael Jehovah's Witness? If so, wouldn't the children NOT celebrate Christmas? I don't know if they did or not but that struck me as well.

@ kdkennedy

Michael was a Jehovah's Witness but stopped following the faith many years back now. Some have said that he coverted to Muslim but there isn't any real evidence to back this up.

@ Rachel...Thank you for clearing that up.

There has been so much said about his religion that I lost track. I guess in the whole scheme of things it doesn't really matter what his faith was when he "died" since no one in his family seemed to care enough to give him the proper memorial to support that faith.

Blanket's statement is still odd though if you ask me.

Sorry, but as Jermaine did say, supposedly ALL THREE of the children saw Michael 'dead' at the hospital; as well as at the 'private ceremony' prior to the memorial show. SO UHM, if even by then he didnt realize his dad was DEAD and not only on 'VACATION'. then something is wrong with Blanket.

my point? nothing is wrong with blanket. the kids never saw their father dead, because he is alive.

@ missdahmer

I also read an article with La Toya who said ALL 3 children went into the hospital room to see Michael and he was still warm and had his eyes open Sad

Ok now if I saw that I would know there was no coming back from that.

Rachel, that is precisely my point. No child would ever think their father is on vacation, especially after KNOWING that he is dead and seeing him dead. Unless, of course, he was actually told he was on vacation... by none other than... you guessed it - Michael himself!

Wow you are pissed!

I know it's so frustrating. I wish they would elect one person to speak on their behalf and leave it at that. You know the only Jackson's I can stomach at the moment are Janet and Rebbie. They are the only ones who have kept a dignified silence.

peterpanswendy- I am right there with you, so it's alright! I, too, get frustrated at times, especially now. I just wish it would all be over with. Somebody needs to come forth and tell the truth about what really happened and let us all know Michael is alive.

I still find it odd that the media said the children arrived at the hospital with Katherine but yet they have footage of her arriving and there were no children with her. Also, I can't believe that not one single person was able to get footage of the children arriving at the hospital. Yet again we are expected to believe what we are being told. No one seen the children arrive, Jermaine and Frank Dileo both claim to have been the one to break the news to the children (and I think I read somewhere that Dr. Murray broke the news to the kids but I am not sure, I could be mistaken on that one).

What are we supposed to believe at this point? The only thing I believe is what my heart is telling me and that is that Michael is alive and well.

MY COUSIN IS 3 A HE'S A FAN OF MICHAEL JACKSON.
WE NEVER TALKED TO HIM ABOUT LIFE AND DEATH,BUT WHEN MICHAEL JACKSON DIED AND HE SAW THAT EVERYONE IN THE HOUSE WAS CRYING.
HE ASKED HIS DADDY WHY HE WAS HE CRYING?
HIS DADDY(ALSO A HUGE MICHAEL JACKSON FAN)TOLD HIM THAT MJ WOULDN'T BE SINGING ANYMORE.
THE 3 YEAR OLD BROKE DOWN CRYING..........IT BROKE MY HEART.
BUT WHAT SHOCKED ME WAS WHEN HE ASKED WAS MICHAEL JACKSON DEAD.

SO....BLANKET BEING 7,HAS TO KNOW WHAT DEATH IS.
ESPECIALLY IF HE SAW HIS FATHER'S DEAD BODY

Honey, dont believe anything Latoya says. Michael had been "dead" for atleast 3 hours at that point. He would not still be warm. Latoya also said they would put a towel over his head. Hmm.

Who says the children even went to the hospital?? Have anyone seen a picture. I for one think that they would have been way more traumatized, at the memoriel, if they saw their Daddy dead.

Im sorry, but the children just looked bored at the memoriel. They didnt look like children, who just lost a parent.

If the story about Blanket asking if his daddy was on holiday is true, I think it's a major proof that MJ is alive.

Last year a close relative of mine died unexpectedly. I have 3 nieces and 1 nephew. The youngest two (aged 5 & 3) were not allowed to see the body, but we explained to them in simple terms about what had happened and both of them understood our relative was gone. In fact, the little 3 year old kept telling everybody "You know Mary is dead, don't you?" & trying to explain what happened.

Therefore, I find it hard to believe that at 7, if properly explained, Blanket wouldn't understand the difference between going on holiday and passing away, regardless if he actually saw the body or not. Specially taking into consideration how bright and well educated those children are.

So, let's keep our hopes up. MJ is alive!!! Wink

My brother passed away when my niece was 7 years old. It was one of the hardest things that we had to do, but we sat her down together (her mom, me, my mom,) and told her that her daddy died. She understood what it meant. It was heartbreaking , but still she needed to know that he was gone.

It just doesn't make sense that Blanket would think daddy is on vacation. He is old enough to understand.

Nothing about any of this makes sense.

One of my best friends Mum's past away at the beginning of the year and while we were in a supermarket my friends nephew kept telling people "Nanny has died and gone to heaven". He is 4 BTW. I don't know how much he understands past the point that she isn't coming back, but he knows she isn't coming back and sure isn't on holiday.

Not easy to tell a young child about a Loved One being deceased but they will process it when they are talked to with Love and Understanding ... not will be easy but they will understand in the end.


Someone told him - His daddy was on vacation?(which he is on Vacation) come on now .... stop hiding things from him ... tell him the truth .... truth is better than a lie anyday.... children need to know - I did when I was seven - my godfather died and I process it and many more things.

Exactly!! which is why it is perfectly believable that he did say to ML that he thought his daddy was on holiday!

My own son is 6,5 years old and has understood 'death' for a long time now. I think he was about 4 years old when we explained and it made complete sense to him. He's also seen his great grandfather after his death and that was not a huge issue. We just explained everything...

You see, as long as you explain, children actually handle deaths way better than grown ups! So, I'm surprised that Blanket would say something like this. To me, there can only be 2 reasons for this:
* They've been lying to the boy telling him that daddy was on vacation just to 'protect' him, but actually making things worse for him
* Michael is not dead at all and is indeed on a vacation
