Child services workers are investigating the presence of a stun gun at the home where Michael Jackson’s children live, but the children were never exposed to the weapon, according to an attorney representing Jackson’s mother. The mail-order stun gun delivered to the home was confiscated before any harm was done, said attorney Adam Streisand, who represents Katherine Jackson, who has custody of the late singer’s three children, Prince Michael, Paris, and Prince Michael II, also known as Blanket. Streisand said the weapon was ordered by the 13-year-old son of Jermaine Jackson, Jafar.
