EXCLUSIVE

0724_tj_blanket_paris_prince_jacksonLawyers for TJ Jackson are at an L.A. courthouse right now in an attempt to get temporary guardianship of Michael Jackson's three kids ... TMZ has learned.

We broke the story ... TJ -- Tito's 34-year-old married son -- has been acting like a quasi-parent to Paris, Prince, and Blanket.

TJ is basing his bid on the fact that Katherine Jackson has been MIA and not providing proper supervision of the kids.

As we reported, Michael's three kids all love TJ and want him to become their temporary guardian.

In addition, lawyers for the Michael Jackson estate are in court and will support TJ's bid to become temporary guardian.

We're told Katherine's lawyers will also be appearing in court to provide specific never-before-heard details about Katherine's disappearance ... details that will affect TJ's bid for guardianship.

9:35 AM PT -- TJ has just arrived at the courthouse along with an army of lawyers -- his lawyer, the kids' lawyer, lawyers for the MJ estate, and lawyers for Katherine. Talk about one expensive hearing.

this is crazy. this young man is all about the money too. to do that to your grandmother is disrespectful. Janet needs to stay out of it. She is the one jackson that has stayed on top not even michael was able to stay. And if the truth gets told his worth more being dead. sorry miss him but its the truth.

Actually a really good looking one in the Jackson family. And fairly well grounded to boot. All the other ones are mostly kinda yucky. And don't get me started on the whacko one... But Paris looks absolutely G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S.

I think its time for Paris to go live on the ranch with HER MOM..., Prince to go live with his REAL DAD, ARNIE KLIEN and the little blanket ( who is his mom again?) to live with ANYONE other than the JACKSONS!!!
