Michael Jackson Estate

Executors Support Temp

Guardian for MJ's Kids

EXCLUSIVE

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.

Go Team Branca! Teach the stupid leeches a good lesson! Michael Jackson adored and protected his precious children by all means, and now they are not safe. The bros may be conniving to kidnap them as well. These children are still growing and must not any longer be traumatized by the insanity of that family.

it's not greed. The kids are not biologically apart of the family. Since they are not apart of the family they should not be entitled to MJ's estate. Joe and Katherine did not work their kids to death and their kids did not suffer abuses so three little white kids from poor mom's could inherit millions of dollars. Giving the money to them is just stupid from a darwinian stand point. They should claim Michael was crazy at the time of filing his will and dispute it.

Something sinister is going one in this Family, apparently because of money. The children should be with a guardian who can take care of them. They should be protected and moved somewhere else.

Well, here's one time I really want TMZ all over a story to find out what the heck is going on and bring to light any shena****ns and deceitful and harmful maneuvers by Katherine's children. And just who is watching Michael's children 24/7 being that Katherine is not there?

Good. The rest of the Jackson's leeched off of Michael for long enough, but it won't happen to his children. Sad when outsiders can be trusted so much more than family members. Poor kids.

Wow! It's about time! I think that Katherine was told the kids were being taken care of and that she is not being allowed to see the media hoopla surrounding her "disappearance". I truly believe that Katherine loves those kids, but even if she doesn't know about the craziness going on, on ewould think that she would at least call those kids once in awhile to check in. The best thing, IMO, is for the responsibility for those kids to be given to someone else who has no ties to the Jackson family. Keep it up and they'll be emotionally scarred for life. This family is absolutely not a secure stabel family. Fighting for money they didn't deserve. 2 brothers sleeping with and having kids with the same woman. THAT woman refusing to move out of the family home. Naming your kid Jermajesty (WTF) They are ALL narcissistic and lacking in any kind of decency. I'm surprised Joe isn't in the middle of all this. Of course, his hand in raising his kids did enough damage. Someone mentioned Oprah taking Michaels kids in, far-fetched as it seems, love her or hate her, at least they'll learn some kind of business sense and be in a stable home without all the craziness surrounding them daily. Good luck kids.

quit worrying about if the kids look like micheal they are his children and he loved them. He knew what his family was like behind close doors. I hope they can protect the kids and the legacy their father left them period

I can't believe the family is doing this! Those kids are in danger for sure, and someone needs to intervene.

I remember back in the day when I was in michaels camp, randy, jermaine, tito called the house, I answered the phone, michael was standing right next to me making hand gestures, "Im not here"

I did not get it then but now I do, they always wanted money from michael for their own wacky projects and michael refused to give in, very sad, that is probably what really killed him, all that stress avoiding those that got him a shot at stardom in the first place, in my opinion if he had just giving them money he would have peace in his life,

:(
