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.

This family is so damn greedy and evil. I wish only the best for these innocent kids and I wish the worst for their greedy ass aunts, uncles, etc. I honestly fear that these sick, greedy, bastards are going to hire someone to kidnap and possibly kill these poor children. I hope I'm wrong.

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!

The siblings are "bottom-feeders". They have been sucking off of MJ their whole life, and feel that is their "job". No sibling has bothered to educate themselves for a more lucrative career. Now they are drilling an old woman, and keeping her from taking care of MJ's children. Despicable.

hmm    

how is katherine able to play cards but not able to talk on the phone to the 3 kids she is responsible for? that alone is very suspect. No doc would order that. The uncles and janet are up to something. Pity the kids

Thank goodness! At least the executors are on the ball.
I have to agree with many others that Mrs. Jackson may not know the whole story and if she does, she's powerless to do anything against her children.
I used to work in radio many years ago and I remember meeting the Jacksons during the Victory tour when they came to the station for an interview. Michael didn't join them for the chat and I understood why later. His brothers are HORRIBLE people. Off air, they talked about Michael like a dog. Without even knowing us, they didn't hold ANYTHING back. You could feel the jealousy and hate filling up the room. It was all anyone could talk about after they left.
As sad as this whole situation is, none of it is surprising to me. Michael knew what he was doing when he limited his children's exposure to the family.

The Jacksons are going to hold on to Katherine until she coughs up some big money. I am SOOOO GLAD the executors are going to go rescue the children and give them a home of their own! They certainly can afford it, and those children should NOT be made to live around a bunch of vultures!
I'm glad Katherine abandoned the children, it cleared the way for the children to make a clean escape!

Their resemblance to Michael Jackson is uncanny. Can't you see the resemblance?

WOW!! I don't think the executors would make such a dramatic move unless something was very wrong. There has been no reasonable explanation from Jermaine about why her grandchildren can't talk to her. Other sources are reporting that police were called to Katherine's home in CA because of a physical altercation, and it was at the same time Katherine was shipped off to AZ.

The kids should ask to be removed from the Jackson family altogether. I think it's appalling that they are being used by this bunch of money grabbing low lifes.

I feel so sorry for those children. What a horrible life for them dealing with all this nonsense over money. It's their money, the rest of them should never get a cent. I can't imagine the heartache they are causing these children and their grandmother. It's just heart breaking.

The Executors could definitely do a better job taking care of the children. Next TMZ will probably report that the siblings were planning on killing Michael's children since they got them alone.
