TJ Jackson

The Perfect Guardian

For Michael Jackson's Kids

7/25/2012 10:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

MMMM!!! I wouldn't trust anyone related to the Jackson family, there had to be a plan intact in case of Katherine's demise.

It's hilarious that they would even include Kim Kardashian's stamp of approval knowing she wasn't born with a moral compass. Who the heck hasn't she "dated"??

I would just like to say BRAVO to this young man who is willing to take on a huge responsibility looking over these minors. Second, how the hell does Kim K. manage to get herself in the media on an issue that has absolutely NOTHING to do with her, just cause she dated the guy? Seriously, enough with this broad!!

Don't know anything about Tito Jr.; but, hopefully, he's been checked out and this is temporary. The only thing that works against him is a reference from Kim K.

It is in Michaels will that Diana Ross would become the guardian if his mother dies or could not do anymore. Diana Ross was the closet to Michael; he loved her and she loved him back immensely. Michael stayed with Diana Ross for a couple years when he was young in California. I believe Diana to be a great mother she has five kids of her own and all five turned out fine with good values. Diana also said that she would become guardian if and she is needed; that's how much Diana loved Michael and how much he meant to her. Let Diana take care of the kids, she will be a great mother for them.

Thanks TMZ. With Kimmy cakes tramp stamp of approval what could go wrong. Michael may have put TJ in his first will but how do we know he's not angry he is out because of the kids. I pray to God he is in it for the right reasons.

The K.s actually seem to be laying low of late-very interesting.( and unusual). Kourtney hasn't even sold her baby pictures to anyone yet! Maybe dealing with the secretive divorce drama? With all their public dirty laundry, odd how the divorce proceedings are skillfully and purposely being hidden from the public. What's up anyway?

This is just my opinion
Ok first I want the media yes you TMZ to stop making more of the story then what it is. Only report the facts please. Number one we are not there with them so we don’t know the whole truth just piece of a lot!! Of he say she say, so how can we past judgment. I saw the video and I did not see Janet hit her from what I saw, and I think she should take her phone, why because #1 she putting things out there that she shouldn’t be, #2 Janet remembers how Michael tried to protect his family and his business from the media plus she also knows that the media will rip little Paris to piece with whatever she give them it’s like a fire if you give it oxygen it will get bigger and it appears they trying to keep this as small and private as can be “trying”. I also don’t like the fact that the media is making the grandmother appear to be an unfit guardian I seriously doubt Michael would have left his kids with her if he felt as though she wouldn’t be a good fit. One thing I know they all love their mother and she loves them and her grand kids. I believe they were already in the works of finding someone to care for them as well because of her age. And BTW TMZ they were not recording Paris like yall need to think before yall just say stupid stuff out yall mouth. If you notice in your clip Randy had his phone out while Paris was talking to Janet and then Randy got her attention and Janet started recording what was being said and done and a second after Janet started recording Paris walk into the house. Also they say a picture can be worth a thousand words but what yall said about this picture don’t add up nor does it reach a thousand. Could it be that Janet was upset about the way people are acting in that house as if they are strangers she does look like she yelling at him but she was upset with the situation also look at how Randy was standing he doesn’t appear to be a man who is being yelled at because of something he did. Any who please just give the facts.
