Michael Jackson's three children are dealing with their dad's untimely death with the help of therapy, LaToya Jackson said Tuesday as she revealed the kids spend their nights crying and grieving over their father's passing.

Prince, 12, Paris, 11 and Prince Michael, 7, also called "Blanket," are so upset over Jackson's death they can't see images of their father or speak about his passing, Jackson told London's The Mirror.

"Blanket is just a very sad, shy little boys. He cries -- he really does cry. It's so painful for him," LaToya Jackson said.

Prince, too, is grieving over Jackson's death -- he "just doesn't want to speak about it," she said. "He won't even watch the DVDs -- it's too soon," she said.

"They all go to therapy and I truly hope Prince especially will be able to open up," LaToya said.

LaToya said Paris is doing the best of the three, and that she covered her room in Jackson posters to pay homage to her father. "she's doing very well, writes a lot and she wears his shirts every day," LaToya said.

The Jackson family has been divided over whether or not they'll watch the upcoming Jackson documentary "This Is It," set to be released Wednesday across the country. It hasn't been revealed whether the children's guardian, grandmother Katherine Jackson, will allow the kids to see the film.
