TJ Jackson

Officially Co-Guardian

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.

First thing I'd do...is take that poor Blanket kid down to city hall and get his name changed. I mean, c'mon! Blanket?! Really?

Michael Jackson was the only father his children had since they were born, he was the only one who taking care for them, and if Michael Jackson thought TJ was fit to raise his children he would have named him in the will and he did NOT!!! Michael Jackson named Diana Ross for a very good reason, to keep his children away from that bunch of parasites leeches greedy money-grubbers delinquents, but she showed she doesn't care enough!!! Anyway no surprise there!!! The judge was already orientated to give him the custody just to place those children with someone!!! How could TJ make sure the children aren't negatively affected??!?!! TJ only agrees with every bad greedy unnatural mother Katherine's decision so maybe she gives him some money given that she made sure to manage children's allowance!!! All what they are interested in is the money they can grab from those children and unfortunately now they are surrounded only by them LEECHES!!!!

Its really about Uncle Benjamin with the Jacksons. This kid, yeah kid, is no different. Would he offer himself so quickly if $$ did not come with the package? Hell no and keep it real.

If he was so close to Michael why wasn't he named in the will as a guardian. I really don't think it a money thing with the kids I think it deeper than that. What is done in the dark will come to light.

JUST A PLOY TO GET THE BROTHERS SOME OF THAT MONEY BECAUSE THEYRE LEFT OUT. Katherine has been trying to get them money for longest. Mike didnt want these bums living off his money.They are typical stereotypes and make us good hard working blacks look bad. FBI is definitely paying attention to these idiots and they dont even know it

The very first thing TJ should do is urge Prince Michael to get rid of those criminally dorky bangs.

The children are too young and naive. There's an angle that's being worked in here somewhere. Find the hole.
