Katherine Jackson

Reinstated as Guardian ...

WITH TJ Jackson

breaking news

Katherine Jackson
is back in as permanent guardian of Michael Jackson's three children, and her grandson TJ Jackson will share responsibilities as co-guardian ... according to a new court ruling.

TMZ broke the story ... Katherine had a change of heart last week, agreeing to split guardianship responsibilities with TJ -- despite previously claiming she was "devastated" by TJ taking on a guardianship role.

In a hearing this morning, the judge reinstated Katherine's guardianship rights ... and made TJ co-guardian, but only temporarily until an Aug. 22nd hearing. At that time the judge will consider making the split guardianship of Prince, Paris and Blanket permanent.

During the hearing, a court appointed investigator said Katherine has been doing a "terrific job as guardian and the children love her." He added, "They also have a close relationship with their cousin, TJ Jackson."

The investigator also said Katherine and TJ have been working well together to care for the children ever since Michael Jackson's death.

That's sad they won't get to know the people who they really care for very long.

Funny how Janet was all bent out of shape trying to steal Paris's phone plus Gladys Knight saying how she would knock Paris's teeth out for revealing family secrets.....................

but yet thats exactly what Janet, Michael and the other kids did when they revealed things about their dad when they were growing up.


Jacksons law: You can put family members down in the media as log as its not me.

Katherine is going to have to step up to the plate, and be in control. If she decides to leave for an extended period of time, she must let the children know what she's doing, where she is at and how to contact her. Communication is key! If the proper communication had taken place last time, this whole thing wouldn't have exploded in her face.

Excuse me, but if TJ Jackson is the son of Tito Jackson, then he is Katherine's GRANDSON, not her nephew.

finally a direct truthful quote. I don't know why this site has been trying to demonize the families ability to raise those kids.

Excuse me, but if TJ Jackson is the son of Tito Jackson, that makes him Katherine's GRANDSON, not her nephew.

just my opinion    

as the children have proven, theyre not blind deaf and dumb...if they want katherine back as their guardian it must be because they love her and feel safe with her. the end.

although the drama is far more elevated due to celebrity status let us not pretend that everyday families dont display this disgusting behavior in the wake of a family members death...ive seen it happen ALL the time...over money, property, children, pets, etc...if you havent seen it happen yet wait until an integral person in your family dies and you unfortunately may witness it.
