Watching from afar in the U.K., Paris Jackson's godfather says he believes she's "doing okay" following her suicide attempt earlier this month – but that he'd love to console her in person.
"Michael made me their godfather, and as a godfather, I do have a responsibility," Mark Lester, the former child star who played the title role in the 1968 film Oliver!, tells British TV show Lorraine of Paris, 15, and her brothers Prince, who is testifying Wednesday in the negligence case against AEG Live LLC, and Blanket.
"I would love to go and just pick them up and give them a big hug, and then we all go and have fish and chips … just be normal, hang out."

Paris Jackson is continuing to seek treatment.
A source close to the Jackson family says that Paris, 15, may be headed to a longer-term treatment center out of state after her stint in a psychiatric facility at UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles.
"Paris will be staying at least another week, and then she'll be going to a facility for additional care," says the source.
The move comes after much discussion within the Jackson family about how best to care for Paris. The teen, who has a recent history of mental health issues that include cutting, was hospitalized on June 5 for taking pills and harming herself with a knife.

Paris Jackson's attempted suicide came in the middle of another family drama: the Los Angeles trial centering on the Jackson family's wrongful death lawsuit against concert promoter AEG.
Like other relatives, Paris has been personally drawn into case. She gave a pre-trial deposition in March, and was on the list of trial witnesses for Katherine Jackson's lawyers, along with Katherine herself and Paris's brother Prince Michael.
Also lingering was the very real possibility she'd have to take the stand – a question that takes on new sensitivity in light of her recent hospitalization. In a 911 call released Tuesday, a dispatcher said Paris cut her arm with a kitchen knife and took 20 Motrin on June 5.

A probate court judge has ordered an investigation into the "health, education and welfare" of Paris Jackson following her suicide attempt.
The report by a court investigator will be submitted privately to Superior Court Judge Mitchell L. Beckloff and is to contain recommendations relating to the 15-year-old daughter of the late Michael Jackson.
Beckloff, who said his June 6-dated order is in response to "recent media reports concerning her welfare," had approved Paris's grandmother Katherine Jackson and cousin TJ Jackson as the child's co-guardians.
