Judge Checks in on Michael Jackson's Kids

10/2/2009 5:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A hearing is underway in Michael Jackson's probate case -- the judge wants to know how the three kids are doing. And some family members may try and boot John Branca as executor under the will.

Joe Jackson: Click to watch
UPDATE 5:27 PM ET -- All done.

UPDATE 5:25 PM ET -- Billie Jean Jackson objects!!!! To what, we don't know.

UPDATE 5:17 PM ET -- Howard Weitzman, who reps Branca and McClain, asked the judge to extend the co-Special Administrators powers through the end of the year. The judge saw it Weitzman's way, and gave the pair basically the same power as executors of the estate would have, with one string attached -- they have to loop in Katherine Jackson and the Guardian Ad Litem for the kids for any deals they negotiate.

UPDATE 5:05 PM ET -- Katherine Jackson's attorney, Burt Levitch, just told the judge the family would rather see a member of the family be the administrator of Jackson's estate.

UPDATE 4:44 PM ET
-- A motion to seal several business agreements was granted.

UPDATE 4:41 PM ET -- The judge has received a report from the court investigator that says kids are doing well. The judge called it "an excellent report."

UPDATE 4:37 PM ET -- The judge has taken the bench.

UPDATE 4:31 PM ET -- But fear not ... Billie Jean Jackson is in the house!!!

UPDATE 4:28 PM ET -- We originally thought Katherine Jackson, Michael's mother and the guardian of his three kids, would be at the hearing -- but now we've learned she will not be. We're told she was all set to come, but then backed out when she heard Joe Jackson would be there.

The Sunday before MJ died, churches around the world said a curse for MJ because of all the sick and twisted sexual things he had done to children. IT WORKED!!!!!!!

How many posters here are pretending to be haters or grieving fans so you too can profit from MJ's death? Those of you who are sincere fans don't be taken in by these fake posters. They are trying to lure you in for their own selfish profit. Some are pretending to be your friend, pretending to share with you sadness over Michael's death, while they are really laughing at you and manipulating you. They are creating their own tribute sites hoping for your hits or planning to write books etc? Keep eyes wide open and be careful what you share. Don't be their fools. There are so many genuine ways to honor Michael Jackson. THIS IS NOT IT.
