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.

For god sakes. Michael made damn sure that none of his family is going to get a penny from him. This is why. He didn't trust is family as far as he could spit and left his estate in the hands of people he did trust and the family wasn't it.


Katherine has absolutly and never has had any say in Michaels estate. She gets a monthly allowence for her self and the rental house and the kids. Thats it. If she want's more she has to go through his estate. That simple. They are the 'EXECTOURS'.

Michael Jackson is probally looking down sad for his mom and kids but laughing at his brothers and sisters knewing they would pull this.

They have nothing to contest. Michael had a very simple will so simple it's rock solid.

Where's the mom during all of this? Debby Rowe, wasn't it? Did she take a payoff to stay out of their lives? What gives?

The executors should suspend Katherine Jackson's allowance and name a new guardian. These kids would be better off AWAY from the Jackson family. I believe Diana Ross would care for them better than Katherine, ever can!!

As always, the lawyers will end up getting EVERYTHING and all the Jacksons will have to get REAL jobs. I have ZERO pity for these people.

I feel that in spirit, Michael Jackson is still not resting in peace. I feel that someone who is not in the lime light should be the executor of his estate. At this point with all the confusion about his estate it should be his sister Rebi Jackson, perhaps with another family advisor. If Michael Jackson knew that it was this much confusion along with his mother going through all this turmoil, he definitely would be greatly disapointed, because he loved his mother very much and all those that are putting her through all this grief, should really be ashamed of themselves. But that goes back to the old O'Jay recording of "For The Love of Money".

Sounds to me the end result will be Katherine's departure and will be living in the same boat as Randy - wishing for yesterdays.

How is what Randy and Janet did not considered attempted kidnapping?

Best Mom    

Michael's brothers/sisters cannot accept the fact that they are getting no money at all from Michael's estate -- and are enraged that Michael's 3 children, who many claim are not biological (but he still was their dad biological or not) - will merely waltz into the millions/billions of dollars from Michael's estate. The J5 clan feel they are entitled to Michael's money because they were the one's who started the name, did all the work as the Jackson 5, etc., etc., -- not the kids. I think this was the purpose of getting Katherine away -- to convince her of the fact that "the old days have to count for something, mom"!

I'll bet Michael would be rolling over in his grave if he knew what was going on with his kids. This is all about a money grab, I believe that Kathrine is the only person who cares about the kids but she is too old to understand what is going on. Where is Diana Ross in all of this? didn't she have something to do with custody of Mike's kids?

Why doesn't the biological parents step up and be the guardian. Aren't these children interested in their biological parents and or their medical histories, family histories, if they have siblings, grandparents, aunts and uncles who will love them for themselves. Lord knows the Jacksons are as dysfunctional and destructive as any family could be.

I feel horrible for these children but honestly the best thing that could happen is for them to be removed from the disfunction of the jackson family.

Margaret Lodise was appointed the attorney for MJ3 in the probate court a few months after MJ died. I read MJ3 contacted her last night. I'm glad the estate will be supporting Ms. Lodise.

Hopefully, Nanny Grace will be contacted to see if she would be willing to accept guardianship of the kids. She would be ideal for the kids especially for Blanket.

This is completely insane what these kids have been through the past 9 days.
