Katherine Jackson Hated Her Grandchildren's Face Masks

Michael Jackson Remember when Michael Jackson's kids paraded around in public wearing face masks? Their grandmother Katherine wasn't a fan of the bizarre accessories.

The King of Pop famously put veils on the faces of his childen Prince, Paris and Blanket (now 16, 15, and 11 years old) to make sure no one knew what they looked like.

Although his intention was to ensure privacy, Katherine Jackson decided to get rid of them after she assumed legal guardianship following the singer's death in 2009 from an accidental overdose.

She told Hello! magazine, "They were sheltered a lot when Michael raised them. I had thought about it and I said, 'I am not going to raise them like that.' I didn't like the way it looked anyway, but Michael had a good reason. He kept their faces veiled so nobody would know what they looked like and they could play like normal kids. He was trying to protect them."
