Michael Jackson Estate

Executors Support Temp

Guardian for MJ's Kids

EXCLUSIVE

0724_mj_kids_01
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.

Oh, for those who are asking where Joe and LaToya are. Believe me, they are involved. Joe is the puppetmaster, pulling strings on the gang of leeches, and LaToya is waiting in the wings to show up as the savior of these kids. Papa Joe and LaToya will show up soon, asking the world "What is going on here? These poor Chilluns, I need to take them away from all this madness. I've just been sitting around waiting for it to stop, but now I must step in for Michael's sake." Yeah right....They are all in cahoots.

all about money...this will is ironclad..and Rebbie is the next in line to be the guardian...but it will not work as she is a Jehova Witness and these kids were raised Muslim by Michael and have to right to choose and not be forced into any religion...how do you leave them alone and take the grandmother away..they will never get their hands on that money...these kids will emancipate themselves before that happens...

They are after M.J's money because none of them have much or a way to make it now. They are hoping to get rid of the executors, then talk Katherine into "lending" them money for their keep. Everything should stay in place...I wonder why LaToya isn't on that list? Maybe she is the one claiming temp. custody and maybe this is all a Jackson big plan to get the money any way they can.

When Katherine learns that she is losing guardianship she is going to be furious with her own kids. When she reads the letter Janet, Randy, Jermaine and Rebbie signed, she will go into shock. Katherine's kids sure know how to de-stress their own mother !!!!!

I wonder if the estate could buy out Katherine.


She got 40% of the estate. Have the lawyers throw a number at her and then be done with it.

This way, the kids could still have a relationship with the grandmother and money will not have to ever come into play.

As far as the parasites are concerned, the kids can just tell them to take a hike. They wouldn't even have to be concerned if a restraining order is in place.

This is a serious, Federal, crime. Interstate kidnapping. Elder abuse. The children involved in the kidnapping of the mother should be charged by the US Attorney, and taken into custody by Federal Marshals, and the sooner the better.

Take those kids and RUN! We may well find out that Jermaine and Joe paid Dr Conrad Murray to OD Michael and then retained his friend for Katherine when she wouldn't cooperate.
I really hope Janet did not assist this mess.
I suspect the Jehovah's Witnesses are about to lose millions in donations.

This is a serious, Federal, crime. Interstate kidnapping of the custodial grandmother. Elder abuse. Probable attempted interstate kidnapping of the grandchildren. The children involved in the kidnapping of the grandmother should be charged by the US Attorney, and taken into custody by Federal Marshals, and the sooner the better.

Granny's in on the plot. Now the siblings can say something to the effect-See Mother, we went to get them and the Estate would not let us bring your own grandchildren to you.

Did someone forget to take Wills and Trusts in law school? I thought the existence of a new will would automatically revoke any and all previous wills. The previous will can't be resurrected since it's already been invalidated by the later will. So if the last will were somehow invalidated wouldn't MJ have died intestate?
