MJ's Final Gifts to Kids -- Disney, Dali & Ice Cream

12/2/2009 12:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Before Michael Jackson died, he ordered three pieces of art for his children -- and today they're finally going to be delivered.

MJ's Final Gifts to Kids

We've learned Jackson picked out the paintings "Alice in Dali Land," "Lost Fairy Tales" and "Flavor of the Month" from artist Nelson De La Nuez -- and they were supposed to be dropped off the week of his death.

Obviously, the plans had to be shuffled around -- but we're told Katherine Jackson has arranged for the artwork to be dropped off this afternoon.

As TMZ previously reported, Jackson had a thing for the artist -- MJ dropped $13,000 on some De La Nuez pieces for himself just two weeks before his death.

Sweet paintings. I bet the last one was for Blanket. What a wonderful daddy. I'm sure the kids will be sad that their wonderful father isn't here to share the moment.

I thought he was insolvent and that was why he was doing 50 shows. Why is he such a good dad if he is buying artwork, he can't afford and he is out of it with drugs. He was not a good dad. Sad for his kids. But there are so many children out there with loser parents who can't be responsible for themselves and/or their children. Not just MJ.

Good Dad??????? A Drug addict that NEVER paid his bills, Had so many body issues he looked like a freak, was a reputed pedophile, never let his children have the NORMAL life he so wanted and by all account was a totall WACK JOB, that was unable to function in the real world....He wasn't a great dad, he was the ONLY dad they knew. If they new different they'd have realized how F'ed up Daddy really was. I'm sick of this f@ucking freak show..I'm GLAD he's DEAD. All the better for his kids!

My oh my...I had to endlessly scroll past the ceaseless parade of Tiger Woods postings to finally get to this? Can't we condense the Tiger Woods posts into a single condensed article, or just put a link to them on the front, so we can dedicate the first page of the site to Michael Jackson? Come on..a little common sense here to give the people what they want and maximize your clicks.

Now back to my comment. You can't deny the symbolism in this photos (although they are hard to see since the semi-transparent TMZ logo clouds the view of the pics rendering them almost unviewable). Tin man looking for a good heart...Snow White being poisoned by the apple..then the link to the Wicked Witch posting (which noted how AEG paid for the painting and no one questions this). Hmm..Wicked Witch...was liquidated...similiar to MJ's assets in all of these auctions and the influx of liquid cash from the movie therefore eraticating his debt. The timing is perfect for that final march to the Emerald City where we will finally see the man behind the curtain.

Love,

Nice paintings, but that shows the kinds of things that Michael spent his money on rather than pay his bills. Little to no impulse control.
