TJ Jackson

Katherine WANTED ME to Take the Kids

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 is really too much confusion. Also, TMZ needs to remove the ignorant hate messages from this site, especially the ones that use vulgar slurs.

Anyone know some voodoo so we can raise Michael from the dead? I'd settle for just messing up all parties involved. Voodoo dolls?

Manipulated or not, drugged or not, she accepted VOLUNTARILY to leave Michael's children ALONE!!! She was supposed to be their guardian, she should have NEVER leave the children alone, and if she asked him to stay with them before abandoning them, it's a behaviour even worse, because she showed her TOTAL lack of interest for Michael's children!!! Infact from the first moment she did not show much interest in raising them, leaving them without a real guide, "raising" them without any rule!!! If she was not interested in raising them or was not able to, WHY she accepted??? She could refuse, Michael has not intended to force her, she would have HOWEVER received her allowance and share of inheritance!!! She is beyond disgraceful!!! Now Michael's children have been entrusted to another Jackson hungry for money and in a very bad situation, surely they are not safe!!!

Is there ANYONE in this family we can believe? This is just pathetic--so sad for those children. I think I now understand why the Judge suggested to TJ that he try to get permanent custody. At the very least, Randy and his band of thieves would be shut down.

Surprised that TMZ hasn't reported how Janet's security team showed up in the night and tried to replace the team on duty. The new team wanted to know about the kids school and so on, and the current security decided it wasn't safe for the kids to even go to school. That's the incident they were talking about.

I bet paris can't wait to turn 18 and ditch this degenerate trash she legally has to call "family". Such a beautiful, lovely, well-spoken and thoughtful young lady should not have to put up with these sub human neanderthals, I feel sad for her and her two brothers, perhaps one day she will make a point of contacting her mother and maybe she can have a real family, and not these grotesque savages.
