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.

Rebie, Janet, Jermaine, and whomever else is involved keep trying to defend themselves, saying Katherine is okay, but what is making them seem like conniving and cruel people is that Paris is publicly going on twitter, having the police called b/c she's not able to talk to her grandmother. And they are not letting those kids contact the only "mother/father" they know?? But they can post photos of Katherine's good time, while her grandchildren are crying for her. They are pathetic creeps to the fullest. What's so hard about letting Katherine pick up the phone and call them?

BRAVO !!!


The kids have a much better chance at growing up normally if they are removed from this zoo environment.


And don't forget the permanent restraining orders against the lot of them. That includes Katherine too. Tough love. Katherine doesn't have the balls to put these leetches in their place.

There is so much more to this story! Gut feeling but I will admit the Executors of the Estate have shown that they have done a great job BUT I remember after Michael's death about his Will and how many were shocked that Branca and McClain were named as Executors of MJ Estate......like I previously stated "it's showtime"

While moving guardianship to the executors may be hard for Katherine and MJ's kids...I say Thank God! This now seems like the only legal way to protect both them and Katherine from the Jackson's greed and selfish actions. MJ obviously knew this would happen and wrote his will accordingly.

Paris just tweeted:

"9 days and counting… so help me god i will make whoever did this pay "

Good for her. At least one of Michael's kids will take on her aunts and uncles.

The Jacksons, without Michael (who I remember reading somewhere was the only one who really loved performing) have never really been worthy of their celebrity status, and Janet is mediocre at best; she just doesn't mind shaking that juicy a$$ around.
The real talent, and thus money-making potential, was always Michael. Now that he's gone and there has been a resurgence of interest in his music, along come the 'brothers' wanting a piece of the pie, again.
From what I gather (and I by no means have the WHOLE story) is that they whisked Katherine off so they can pressure her into going along with their plan to have Michael's will basically re-written, for obvious reasons.
What a bunch of greedy, shameless s***! There was a reason he left them NOTHING!
