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.

The whole thing is a shame,and maybe TJ should get permanent share custody with his grandma Mrs Jackson is to old to deal with teenagers,and a ten year old she has raise her children these are her golden years she should be enjoying them not being stressed out. Either Randy is telling the truth about it are he not the whole thing sounds crazy from their mother being kidnapp to the lawyers are trying to kill her.And they might as well hang up getting MJ's will invalidated it's not going to happen even if it did they still would end up with nothing MJ did not leave them anything,but alone. It's time to start thinking about the children and what's best for them as well as Mrs Jackson stop all the drama.

Why is it that the actual relatives of the deceased have to be money hungry, when the vultures controlling the estate are not related or Black? This should be solely a family matter, they should control their own estate and they should benefit as a family because it was the JACKSON 5 before Michael Jackson. Further, why should the white handlers benefit?? TRADITION?

Educated One    

If the estate has grossed $1 Billion and paid the $400 million of debt off, there is remaining half of a billion dollars, not including residual income. So, WHY is Katherine on receiving $86,000.00 per month, which is merely $1 million dollars a year? Why should attorneys capitalize off this family?? They should turn the estate over to that family to handle their own matters! Greedy white people are the demise of LIFE.
