Katherine Jackson remains the children's temporary guardian. A hearing is set for July 13. Debbie Rowe, mother of Jackson's two eldest kids, has yet to announce if she will seek custody.

"Those three children will have the most incredible grandmother that God has put on this earth to take care of them," said Magic Johnson at Tuesday's memorial. "Michael's three children will have incredible uncles and aunts to take care of them as well, and [plenty] of cousins!"
