Michael Jackson Guardianship Papers Filed

6/29/2009 12:48 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael JacksonA guardianship petition has been filed for Michael Jackson's children by Katherine Jackson, the grandma.

She is asking the court to appoint her as the guardian for all three kids.

The petition states the kids have "no relationship with their biological mother."

According to the petition, the kids are in the care of Katherine and they have "a long established relationship."

The petition says the value of Michael Jackson's assets are unknown at this time.

Debbie Rowe is named as mother of two children in the petition.

As for why Katherine thinks it would be "best" to appoint her guardian, "Minor children are currently residing with paternal grandmother. They have a long-established relationship with paternal grandmother and are comfortable in her care."

The petition says it's "not known at this time" whether the mother (Rowe) agrees that Katherine should be the legal guardian.

Michael Jackson and KidsAs for Prince "Blanket" Michael Jackson II -- MJ's third child -- the box where it says "mother" is checked "none." The DOB is listed as January 21, 2002.

A hearing is now set for August 3 to hear the petition.

WTF    

Michael Jackson had lupus. Look it up. Compare the symptoms and the results. The media loves to throw around terms like "toxicology report" and sensationalize an already sensational story.

Great Idea. The woman is going to be 80 years old. These children are going to have to suffer the loss of another parental figure in their lives soon. They should have gone to Janet.

It's sad that the family can't even grieve without having to worry about so much legal and media mess!

If the information printed about Joe Jackson's behavior when his own children were small I worry about him being any place near those children. They already have enough to deal with - they have lost their father. That is a huge burden.

ENOUGH ALREADY    

Enough with the Michael Jackson stories already. The entire Jackson family is just after his money. The kids were all abused as children by Joe. That's why he turned out to be a freak. Let's get on with our lives and move on to the next big drama.

With the accusations made by Jackson's children why would they let those kids go there? I just don't get it. Joe is such a POS. Will we ever know who the true biological father of all three and the mother of Blanket?
