TJ Jackson
is now PERMANENTLY sharing guardianship of Michael Jackson's children with their grandmother Katherine Jackson, an L.A. judge just ruled.

As we previously reported, TJ was awarded temporary co-guardianship of Prince, Paris, and Blanket along with Katherine ... but that was made permanent today.

TJ has received enormous support from the Jackson family to take a guardianship role, including from Katherine herself ... as well as MJ's kids. TJ has been a father figure to the children for years.

The judge told TJ in court to be mindful of the giant rift currently tearing apart the Jackson family -- and asked TJ to make sure the children aren't negatively affected.

As co-guardian, TJ will assume many of the day-to-day tasks involved in taking care of the children -- including management of household personnel and security.

My husband and I would watch the kids for FREE. We would not take a penny. We have enough adults and children and love and compassion and discipline in this home to take care of 3 more kids. These kids would grow up healthy, happy and loved. I hope (and believe) they are being given this kind of attention with Mr. TJ.

How was any of this even able to happen? Katherine was the sole guardian and wasn't even asked or included in court when temp guardianship was granted to TJ...NOW he is appointed Co-guardian and it will be that way until one of them is no longer able to. Katherine Jackson is an elderly woman who's health is deterioating...I'm afraid to even think what will happen to her so the TJ gets sole guardianship. I mean that's the plan right...I hope Janet is able to find that the will is invalid and kicks all of these greedy leeches out and away from MJs kids and HIS hard earned money.

These kids are screwed. Lets be honest, Blanket is the only one who looks like Michael. Really he does, especially a younger Mike. The two older didn't carry his genes, but they look like their mom. Genetics is a funny thing and sometimes you don't get what you think you would or should. TJ looks creepy as hell. Just saying, he needs to lay off the eye brow waxes.

Thank God someone in that family is thinking of the kids. Everyone else is after MJ's money. Get out and get a job! Very disappointed in Janet. The kids want TJ and I'm thankful Mrs. Jackson agreed to let him be co-parent. They seem to love him...I hope they can live as normal as possible. MJ has some smart kids...and he would be so unhappy with what is going on. TY TJ for stepping in..and do right by those kids..make Michael Proud!

Berry Gordy Sells EMI a Stake In Catalogue of Motown Songs. Jobete owns the copyrights to more than 15,000 songs from the classic Motown era of the 1960...'s and 1970's, including ''My Girl,'' by the Temptations, and ''I Heard it Through the Grapevine,'' by Marvin Gaye.
----------------------
The music industry’s latest round of dominoes fell into place perfectly Friday. That’s when a consortium led by Sony/ATV closed on its $2.2 billion purchase of EMI Music Publishing. Other investing partners joining Sony/ATV are the estate of Michael Jackson, Abu Dhabi-based Mubadala Development Company PJSC, Jynwel Capital Ltd., the Blackstone Group's GSO Capital Partners LP and music business veteran David Geffen.

With the deal, Sony/ATV’s arsenal grows to more than 2 million songs, when you factor in EMI’s 1.3 million tunes. That includes 251 compositions by The Beatles -- controlled with the Jackson estate -- along with such classics as The Police’s “Roxanne,” The Beach Boys’ “Surfer Girl” and current hits by Justin Bieber, Usher and One Direction.
---------------------------------
This deal was completed at the end of June 2012.
In July 2012, asked the the executors of Michael Jackson's estate to resign. While MJ is still earning money Jermaine and Randy are sucking eggs.

Isn't great that the little wonder boy of the Jackson 5 now owns a percentage of the Motown Songs catalogure along with the Beatles catalogure and his own music that still earns millions per year.

Too bad the Grandmother still has custody - you can kiss the Michael Jackson fortune for his kids goodbye.
