They need to keep the kids as far away from Joe Jackson as possible. I was shocked at his conduct at the BET awards

"temporary" .... god can only hope its very temporary ....why would you give a 79 year old woman full custody of 3 young kids?
and isnt she and her husband directly responsible for the freak that mj turned out to be?
isnt there one somewhat normal person in that family that might raise them and give them a chance at a normal life?
mj isnt even their biological father.

Where is Gloria Allred to step in, to make sure Joe Jackson isn't around them (ie Restraining Order). He is a very scary guy..

Joe Jackson and Katherine Jackson are separated and don't live together ----for all you idiots who appear to be sooooo concerned.

I'm so glad she was awarded temporary custody-maybe she can mess up her grandkids like she did her children.

Ok @ Donrickles...even if he isn't their biological father we will never know who the father is. Obviously, he was a sperm donor. Therefore, Michael adopted the kids which means they are Jacksons. He fed them and he was the only father they knew. Also, if you and a few others want to keep bringing up the fact that he wasn't even their biological dad because they are white and should be with white people....they should not be entitled to his money either now don't you agree?
