MJ KIDS

TJ NOW TEMP GUARDIAN

KATHERINE OUT

EXCLUSIVE

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.

The judge is a ****ing moron... if she is being prevented from doing her duties as a guardian by Jermaine, etc, isn't that kidnapping? Holding someone against their will?

Judge is a ****ing moron.

Its difficult to decide who is more pathetic, the Jacsons for fighting over these kids or the parents that sold these kids to Michael.

A good judge would send these poor kids back to their 'real' parents, and put an end to this nonsense.

Let's hope some of TJ's mother's DNA took over and this man is actually a good person with the best interests of the children in mind.

love the show! Everything about the show is excellent except for a girl whom I have never seen on your show before. I wish that I had caught her name, but I didn't, so I have to describe her as black. She commented on the Jackson Story. Her voice is so irritating, loud and grating I left the room. It also seemed that she was slow to catch on to things. Maybe she could get some voice coaching to help her out. I'm just saying

I wish I was a bully at the school where that little runt Blanket goes (do these bitches even go to school?). Every day I'd punch him in the face and push him into a mud puddle ha ha ha!

The little one actually resembles Michael could he actually his bio child? The other two are definitely not biologically related to the Jacksons - look at them then look at all those oogly brothers

It appears to me that Katherine has probably had a health problem. If you are having mini strokes it will mess up your speech like you are drunk or taking drugs. Maybe her kids do not want anyone to witness this b/c she will lose custody of the kids. Personally I think she is too old to take care of the kids. She needs someone taking care of her for a change. Check to see if Diana Ross wants the kids and if not let TJ keep them but keep a sharp eye on him, after all he is a Jackson.
