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.

How is it that the little slut called Paris is so pretty and sexy, and that little wiener called Blanket is so butt-ugly? You'd think that Jackson would have paid for two good-looking kids, not just one....

all this is, is ridiculous. it obvious that KJ doesnt know all this is going on, she has to "stay away from phones and computer do to doctors orders" but if she knew that her grandchildren and going through hell with their aunt and uncles and reported her missing she would be flying back to those kids, just wait till she finds out about all of this...

It's quite sad that in a sea of adults these three KIDS seem to have more sense and maturity than all of the adults combined.

GOOD! I hope the executors do take the kids and let them live a life free of conflict! And HELL yes I think Paris should act if she wants to! Janet started acting at an even younger age than Paris when Janet created a spot for herself on "GOOD TIMES".

Ok, so first the story of her being missing. Then she was visiting her daughter and told she needed to relax and have no phone contact with anyone. Then she was supposed to be at a spa with family. Then she was supposedly going to view the "Unity Tour". And now we're back to her being missing and basically kidnapped again? When will these people get the facts right?

And no matter what, this woman should never allow anyone to tell her she can't have contact with these three minor kids that she was appointed guardian of, and gets paid 70 grand per month to care for. And why isn't she acting like a grandmother that WANTS to know what's going on with her GRANDKIDS? She's either the weakest woman in the world, or sedated and kidnapped!

I think it's looking more likely that Mrs Jackson has had a stroke and is incapable of taking care of the children. Why else would she not be back home and controlling this chaos? I bet her moocher kids wanted to cover up the fact she was no longer able to take care of the kids so they could take control without the executors knowing. Michael Jackson left his mother money in a revokable trust that goes to his kids after she passes. They aren't going to be able to mooch much longer if their mother is seriously ill.

These children have been nothing but dollar signs to everyone since birth except to their father. Their mothers sold them like cattle and Katherine who her son in trusted his most precious possessions has left them with wolves. I doubt there is anyone that will take them in a just see them as children needing stability. Prince turns 16 next year perhaps he should work on emancipating himself. Those kids can only trust in each other at this point.

A monumentally foolish move. And how convenient that they waited until the executors cleared a half billion dollars in debt! All they are doing is alienating their niece and nephews forever. Michael was foolish too, for appointing his mother as guardian. Did he really think that she will live until Blanket (stupid name) is 18? This was a thoughtless responsibility to give her. Plus she allowed him and his siblings to be abused by their father! So her judgement may be flawed too. These kids have no real friends or caring, responsible adults to turn to. If they grow up healthy and sane, it will be due to their professional caregivers, not to their family.

Once the executors rescue MJ's children, the Jacksons will stop fighting because the money will have left the house, and think that is EXACTLY how MJ wanted it!
