Michael Jackson Estate

Executors Support Temp

Guardian for MJ's Kids

7/24/2012 8:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The executors of Michael Jackson's estate will go to court to support a move for a temporary guardian for Michael's 3 kids.

TMZ has learned ... papers are being drafted by the lawyer for someone who will ask the probate judge in the Estate case for the temporary guardianship. We do not know the identity of that person, however, we are told the Estate is drafting legal docs supporting the temporary guardianship.

We're told the person seeking the temporary guardianship is also filing legal docs claiming Katherine Jackson -- who is currently the legal guardian of MJ's 3 kids -- has been effectively kidnapped by Michael's siblings, and as a result they are without supervision.

Sources very familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... the executors feel responsible for protecting the kids ... since the kids are the primary beneficiaries of their father's estate. As such, the executors will support a temporary guardian for the kids.

As we previously reported, Katherine went off the radar more than a week ago leaving her grandkids behind as Janet, Jermaine, Randy, Rebbie and Tito executed a long-standing plan to convince Katherine that Michael's will was a fraud and the executors had to go.

Sources tell us ... this plan has been in the works for months, but here's the problem ... Even if the will was invalidated, MJ's brothers and sisters would get zilch because the prior will also gives them nothing.

And, although we're told Randy wants to make a move to replace the executors, that would never happen. First of all, the executors will not be removed. And second, even if they were removed, the court would never appoint someone with no background in finances.

We're told there will not be a court hearing today on a temporary guardianship, but it could happen in the next few days.

His Will stated Katherine should receive guardian ship and or Diana Ross. Those kids should have been given to Diana Ross. He did not want his kids in the spot light this way....You never heard much about Diana Ross kids b/c she shielded them.

Those kids need protection from the family. Katherine seems well meaning but I think the Michaels kids should be taking care of her at this point.
Janet and Jermaine and the rest of the circus are very dangerous people at this point. They've probably believed their whole lives that they would someday share in Michaels fortune and now they've been put in a position where his three kids (the only people they can't manipulate and blackmail) are the gatekeepers.
They KNOW they aren't getting anything and theres no way at this point to start a relationship with these kids and smooth talk their way into the estate. The kids know full well who they're dealing with.
This makes them VERY dangrous and probably capable of anything.

I'm sure if Paris offered them each $50 million to leave Katherine alone and never see her again they'd all take the deal.

Considering the fact that MJ's siblings showed up and tried to abduct the children, I'd say this is for the best. Far too much weirdness going on. What the relatives say doesn't seem "right" at all, you can tell they're trying to pull something shady. What I don't understand is why Janet is involved. I thought she was "stable" and had her own money. Latoya isn't involved in this, maybe she's the only sane one after all.

How does anyone know that Janet, etc. want the will dismissed because of money? They probably just want the kids and their trusts to be protected by someone other than Kathryn simply because she is impressionable and older and Joe vultures around.

These poor test tube children. They never asked to be cultivated. I can not imagine what type of identity crisis they must have. The person who sanctioned their creation is dead following a very dramatic chain of events. Now they are knee deep in the crazy backwards family that made the only father they have ever known crazy. It is really very sad and as an uneducated opinion- I feel they need to be taken FARFARFAR away from the Jacksons with their money guarded like the royal treasure.

What is so worrisome is that it may not be too far fetched that Jermaine and Randy would do something foul of the law to get their hands on Michael's children and money. It has happened time after time in history. Where family members have done evil things to get what they want. Here is a perfect example that you can't even trust those in charge.
Funny coincidence is that both of Michael's son's are named prince.
King Richard III 1483 - 1485
■Age 31-33
Prime suspect to the suspected murders of the two princes, Edward and Richard.

The Princes in the Tower
The two princes, Edward and Richard were locked up in the Tower of London by Richard. The elder prince was in fact the 12 year old King Edward VI who Richard had kidnapped on his way to London to be crowned King. The other prince was his younger brother also called Richard (Duke of York). Richard Duke of York was obviously second in line to the throne. Both needed to be “done away with” before Uncle Richard could inherit the throne.

The two boys simply disappeared and nobody who valued their lives dared to ask Richard what had become of them.

About 150 years later some children’s bones were discovered but technology was not then available to provide the conclusive evidence for who they were.

During the 1930’s the bones were examined again and were dated as far as was then possible to the late 1480’s.

Shakespeare portrayed Richard as the most evil of Kings.

I seriously hope it either Diana Ross or one of Michael's friends who is stepping up to the plate for temporary guardianship. Barry Gordy you need to step up. You took Michael as a child and introduced him to a world of leeches and users. He, I believe, said that he wished you had been his biological father. Do the right thing so-called Michael's right by "his" children as you should have/did with him. Lisa Marie, I know that you are not their biological Mom, but you were married to Michael, help him from the beyond!!!

sad story     

I pray the estate get custody of these children. The Jackson family is the defination of a dysfuntional family , now we see while MJ wanted nothing to do with his family. All his siblings care about is money ,and they are cabable of doing anything to these kids should because no one is taking care of these children and their own mother .

What's wrong with Blanket's eye? Perhaps a doctor should take a look at that doesn't give his drug addicted patients whatever they ask for like propophyl.

Why do I get the impression that Randy/Janet were trying to set up the kids. To methodically be waiting for them to pull up and already have their cell phones on? I would bitch slap them with a restraining order....haven't the kids been thru enough!
