King of Pop Michael Jackson, still seems to be the heartthrob of his fans, as the superstar was mobbed by his admirers while he took his children out for a play in London.

The 50-year-old pop star was mobbed by screaming fans as he took his two youngest children to see "Oliver!" at The Theatre Royal, West End, reported the Dailymail.Co.Uk.

Jackson appeared pleased by the warm reception, smiling and waving at fans. He signed autographs and shook hands before departing in a minibus.

The youngest of Jackson's three children, seven-year-old Prince Michael II, and Paris aged 11, hid their faces as they were escorted through the crowd.

Jackson dressed in a red and black jacket was surrounded by people trying to get a picture of him on their cameras.

At the show, the three were joined by Jackson's friend Mark Lester, who played Oliver in the original 1968 film.

Jackson is expected to return to Los Angeles this week. But he will be back in Britain in July for a series of ten performances at the O2 Arena. He had earlier announced that the concerts will be his last ever in the UK.
