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.

I don’t know TJ, but if the kids trust him then maybe its for the best that he be granted permanent custody. I hope it’s out of love and not money. If Love, its best. Katherine loves all her children, but they manipulate her. I’m sure each get a check out of her monthly allowance from MJ’s estate. It’s a shame. Even in death this man is still supporting these greedy people. Randy – Get A JOB! Janet you don’t have enough? You still want more?
