MJ KIDS

TJ NOW TEMP GUARDIAN

KATHERINE OUT

7/25/2012 11:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0725_jackson_01
Katherine Jackson has been temporarily stripped of her guardianship over Michael Jackson's 3 kids, and an L.A. judge just appointed Tito Jackson's son TJ to become the temporary guardian.

And there's more ... Judge Mitch Beckloff advised TJ and his lawyer, Charles Shultz, to seek a permanent guardianship, after hearing stories that Katherine may have been held against her will "from third parties."  Translation -- Randy, Janet, Jermaine and Rebbie.

Before handing down the ruling, TJ's lawyer told the judge TJ got a strange phone call from Katherine yesterday.  TJ said, "I've never heard my grandmother talk like that."  TJ added, "She wasn't sharp.  The pauses, choice of vocabulary ... she has not used certain phrases like that before."  TJ thought she was talking in code.  TJ choked up as he addressed the court.

TMZ broke the story that TJ would make this move -- a move supported by Paris, Prince, and Blanket, as well as the Michael Jackson Estate.

The judge said Katherine was not suspended for wrongdoing, but that she was prevented from doing her guardianship by the third parties who are clearly Randy, Janet, Jermaine and Rebbie.

Katherine's lawyer, Sandra Ribera, added that she (Sandra) has been to the house several times recently and believes Katherine has been held against her will.

Katherine's lawyer, Perry Sanders, says he would vigorously oppose any move to permanently strip Katherine of her guardianship duties.

Perry also says ... when Katherine returns to L.A., he will  file a motion to reinstate her as guardian.

TJ IS A GOOD CHOICE, THE CASCIOS AN EVEN BETTER BUT THEY ARE NOT FAMILY AND MAYBE THEY ARE NOT AS CLOSE WITH THE CHILDREN AS THEY WERE.

AND FYI THE ONLY KIDS LEAVING OFF MIKE'S MONEY ARE ALEJNDRA'S KIDS, THE ONE WHO HAD KIDS WITH TWO BROTHERS EVERYONE ELSE HAVE THEIR ON PLACE.

KATHERINE HAS BEEN LIVING WITH MJ KIDS IN CALABASA FOR A WHILE AFTER REALIZING THAT ALEJANNDRA AND HER KIDS WOULDN'T LEAVE THE HOUSE IN ENCINO I BELIEVE SOME OF THEM ARE LIVING IN A CONDO NOW ALSO OWNED BY MJ.

JACKIE, MARLON AND TITO ARE GOOD PEOPLE JERMAINE, LATOYA NOT SO MUCH IT'S WEIRD SHE'S BEEN QUITE.


POOR MJ TO THINK THAT HIS FAVE BRO AND SIS (RAANDY AND JANET) ARE DOING THIS TO HIS KIDS.

Wow weird, MJ saw this train of bandits coming and they can't stand it. No wonder he took the IV to sleep he was trying to forget this family for a few hours a night. He's poor mother trying to do the right thing and they ambush her, and the children. Paris keep tweeting for your own sake and to help your grandma you flushed them out, good for you keep going. "Save my Grandma" tweet it over and over, put a sign in the yard yellow ribbons around the trees, until she gets home. Sounds like she needs you!!

It seems Michael never adopted those children, and they are not biologically his. I don't see what legal claim he actually had to them, let alone his family has to them.

Sure MJ put his name on the birth certificate, but that doesn't mean much. I can get knocked up and, for the heck of it, put George Clooney as the baby daddy. It doesn't mean he has any legal or biological claim to the kid.

Debbie Rowe was specifically left out by Michael because Michael came to realize that she was only about money, and kept using him as an ATM - beyond her divorce settlement. He paid her settlement. He didn't want her to come back like a shark and get her hands on any of his childrens' inheritance. She's done there. Furthermore, with her settlement, in her "marriage" agreement to be the surrogate mother, she gave up custody – willingly. She “gave” her children to Michael as a “gift,” from his “biggest fan.”
Rowe relinquished all claim to custody of her children and ceded sole custody to Michael. Michael had the money to have everything his way, and he paid to get it; he had it when he died. As a result there is no natural mother/child between Rowe or the children she bore him. T.J. Jackson is, in fact, one of the people named on his Will AFTER Diana Ross, as he is one Tito’s nephews. Michael always favored Tito’s sons over his other nieces and nephews. As for Diana Ross, she has raised 5 of her own children – they’re adults. She probably doesn’t want to be bothered with Michael’s children at this stage of her life. If I were Ms. Ross, I wouldn't want to raise Michael's children and I would stay OUT of this completely. None of Shakespeare's tragedies have ANYTHING on the the spectacle that is the Jackson family.
Someone posted earlier “WHERE’S DEBBIE ROWE?!” She’s living modestly in Palmdale, CA. with a small stable of horses and her dogs. She’s been with Marc Schaffle (sp.?) since Michael’s trial. There’s no news if they’re still an item. She gave up all custody rights, and has no say in Prince Michael Jr. and Paris’ life. She certainly has zero say in Prince Michael II (Blanket’s) life; she didn’t give birth to him.
Debbie Rowe and Arnold Klein are the parents of the two eldest children – that’s rather obvious at a glance. Paris looks like her mother, and has Arnold’s and Debbie’s nose, Arnolds ears, and Debbie’s eyes and dirty blonde hair (Arnold’s brunette and Debbie’s blonde hair combo). Prince Jr. is a miniature Arnold Klein, eyes, nose ears etc. Blanket is definitely Michael’s boy – by blood. He looks precisely like Michael did when he was the same age (10 yrs. old). However, Michael was each child’s father – in everyway that counts, and kudos to him.
Finally, Paris’ concern for her grandmamma is admirable, but her b*tchness comes through (as I always suspected was there), with the belligerent and hollow threat she made on Twitter. She’s a minor; she’s not an adult. She’s a little girl of 14 and she can’t make anyone do anything at this stage of her young life – let alone “pay.” Michael wouldn’t have approved of her being in the public eye – not one of his children, nor that outburst. She should adopt the demeaner of her big brother and little brother and keep her mouth shut.

I' imagine that Janet and Jermaine had to get her good and drugged up to tell her some of the events of the last week ALL because they wouldn't allow her to use the phone. Mom, there's a missing person's report out on you, the kids are worried sick, police were called to your home when a fight broke out, and oh ya, you're probably going to lose guardianship of the kids in the morning. It's not OUR fault, though.

Can we say $$$$$$$$$$,it's not about the kids.No wonder his father took his name off the complaint on the estate.No matter how their father tried to protect them his wish's were never met.Hopefully he taught his kids to watch out for those who see them as $$$.Good Luck to the kids.

Katherine didn't protect her young children from husband Joe and she can't be counted on to protect her grandchildren from her predatory children, especially not at age 82. The only consideration should be the welfare of Michael's 3 children and they deserve to be raised by the (much) younger and more capable T.J. who just showed he has the kids back by physically defending them against their aunt and uncles.

Katherine is at a crossroads now. Does she continue to cover for her kids messes at the expense of her own reputation, or does she admit that they're a bunch of abusive vultures who used her as a pawn. If she does the latter, she can restore the trust and repair the damage with MJ3 - and possibly regain custody. Anything short of that will give TJ the power to control the situation, and the kids will probably give him their blessing to do so.

The outcome of this was totally counter-productive for the Hacksons. It will result in tighter restrictions on the money going out of the estate to support the kids, and made MJ3 very popular in the court of public opinion. A blessing in disguise for them. Now Paris will be free to pursue her acting career without any 'static' from her jealous, greedy aunt, while the rest of the clan will be picking up cans in a few years.

These people are selfish, according to TJ Katherine speech is slurred and he knows she suffered a mini-stroke. I don't believe him about some code, people that has suffered a stroke WILL have slurred speech and pauses too because their speech pattern has changed.

Of course, Katherine wants custody back. She's all about the money she's paid for being their guardian, too. The whole family is all about the money.

If Jermaine and Randy felt they had the winning lotto ticket by kidnapping their mother, well they'll find out real soon that all they are holding is losing ticket. They'll have mom but nothing else. And I don't think that is what they wanted. Grandma has lost temperary custody which may become permanent. Which means she loses the money meant for the children. I wonder if she will still get her 40% since she is still alive. I wonder if that is what Randy and Jermaine is after. I also wonder if someone is turning the screws on two daddies that owe child support and that someone is already angry that she got kicked out of the house with her meal ticket kids, that aren't meal tickets anymore. Why would two adults who are parents themselves do something so dastardly to kids. Who would be so heartless to destroy a family for personal gain?
Let's just hope Katherine doesn't die on their watch because the charges of kidnapping will pale besides neglectful homicide.
