TJ Jackson

Katherine WANTED ME to Take the Kids

7/25/2012 5:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Katherine Jackson SUPPORTED TJ Jackson's efforts to obtain temporary guardianship of Michael Jackson's 3 children ... so says TJ in court docs obtained by TMZ.

TJ filed the docs with the court before today's hearing -- and in the papers, TJ claims Katherine was being manipulated by family members who were hellbent on controlling Katherine.

In fact, TJ claims one of his aunts -- either Janet or Rebbie -- arranged for a person to IMPERSONATE A DOCTOR to convince Katherine to blow off a concert series and instead fly with her conspiratorial children to Arizona.

TJ claims he had been assisting with the care of MJ's children since MJ died ... and even before Katherine disappeared, she placed them in his care.

According to the docs, TJ claims he finally spoke with Katherine on July 24 -- and during the conversation, she "indicated to me that she supported me in taking steps that I deemed appropriate to protect [MJ's children]."

TJ was eventually awarded temporary guardianship over Paris, Prince and Blanket.

After the hearing, Katherine contradicted TJ's story ... insisting she was "devastated" by the court's decision.

This poor woman is being abused terribly. She doesn't know what she thinks. She is torn between the love she has for her grandchildren and the love she has for her terrible, useless, lazy, greedy children. I think her days of being a guardian are over. And the gravy train just emptied its last load to the freeloaders.

See? Not a single one of them can refrain from talking out of both ends.... Now KJ wanted TJ to gain temp cust? Yet, she is so devestated? NONE of this makes any sense. Even sadder- it will merely boil dowm to pissimg comtests with attorneys and the court will never know the truth of much either...

Those kids need to be with someone that is going to take care of them and love them. Someone that doesn't have eyes that light up with money signs whenever they look at them.

these are court do***ents/affidavits. Therefore he better be telling the truth adn i think he is smart enough not to lie in court-- so i pray janet or rebbie gets investigated for this and this so called doctor gets called to answer for this too. Please let it all be exposed!!!

We are good friends of the Family. TJ is always sought by MJ's kids. Whenever he comes around, The kids always yell "TJ's here" they then run down. I have known TJ and he is a very bright young man, humble and soft spoken as well.

God bless her she has done an excellent job, given her age. I bet she is tired with all the confusion of so many people living in that house.

these peeps arent too bright- if questioned alone they will all crack under pressure and start turning on each other and spilling the beans. This might just all come out in the open now. Wonder where janet is hiding??? bet she is ticked off about the vid and that she cant control the kids --haha it all backfired.

Wow ...    

Interestingly enough, TJ lost his mother to murder in the 90's. He can really relate with the pain the kids feel...

The whole family is nuts. She's got no argument when she leaves the kids and doesn't even tell them where she's going. She just lost guardianship.

If MJ's fans find out Janet has something to do with this, she has made her last album. Career suicide.
