A judge just appointed TJ the temporary guardian of Michael Jackson's three kids and suspended Katherine Jackson's guardianship.

There's a reason TJ Jackson had a lawyer prepare legal papers to make him the temporary guardian of Michael Jackson's kids -- he has already partially assumed that role ... and he even has the Kim Kardashian stamp of approval.

TMZ broke the story ... TJ became alarmed when Katherine Jackson -- the current legal guardian -- disappeared for more than a week. 

Jackson sources tell us ... TJ -- the 34-year-old married son of Tito -- has had a strong connection to Paris, Prince and Blanket for years, but was especially comforting after MJ died.

One example ... at the Michael Jackson tribute show in Wales, Katherine was by herself in a private area, far from the kids.  TJ was in full dad mode, helping Blanket tie his shoes, helping Prince tie his tie.  He made sure the kids were fed during the concert, which lasted for hours.

Kim Kardashian, who dated TJ for 4 years, tells friends, of all the Jacksons ... TJ was the closest to Michael and his kids.  She says TJ had a "father-like" relationship with Michael's kids, adding, "He's a very honest and trustworthy person and everyone knows he'll do the right thing."

Paris, Prince and Blanket adore TJ and are behind the temp guardianship move, and that's something that will weigh heavily with the probate judge.
 
We're told TJ is in wait mode -- to see what happens with Katherine.  But the papers are drafted and he's ready to make his move in court.

Kim has nothing to do with this, and you are kiss that piece of trashes ass here. Quoting her on anything has a negative effect.

If I was him I wouldn't tell any one that he knew Kim and I would never use the biggest ho for a reference as being good. What on earth would she know about being a good person??

That poor woman is EIGHTY-TWO years old!! I felt for her when she had to assume that role in the first place, even knowing how much she loves them. And then to add that family circus on top of it all is asking too much....this whole fiasco would have happened eventually......sad

hey TMZ, You might like your connection with the Kartrashians but the rest of us rate her the second most hated female on earth. SO PLLLEEEASE don't use her as a REFERENCE to any one's character.

and if Kim has children and treats them like her mom does, then she will beat Casey Anthony OUT of first place! uggg.

as for MJ's children...I am rooting for you and THRILLED that Paris is strong and outspoken. this will keep her from being pimped out. IN FACT, Kim could learn A LOT from this GIRL!!!

He better not wait long. And the sooner Katherine is no longer guardian, at least temporarily, the safer she will be from her vulcher children Randy, Jermaine, Janet and Rebbie. Those crazies are running the asylum.
