TJ Jackson

He Needs Cash

To Care for Michael's Kids

TJ Jackson
cannot continue to serve as a surrogate parent to Michael Jackson's 3 kids without getting some compensation, so the Executors of MJ's Estate are asking the judge to give TJ a reasonable amount of money to keep the ship afloat.

The Executors filed legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- in which they say TJ has been extremely devoted to Paris, Prince and Blanket since MJ's death.  TJ -- who is now a co-guardian along with Katherine Jackson -- spends 40 hours a week caring for the 3 kids. 

The Executors say it's been a hardship for TJ -- who is married with 3 kids of his own.  Although he's been a co-guardian since July, he hasn't received a single penny for his services.

The Executors are asking the judge to allow them to pay TJ $9,000 a month, retroactive to July.  They add, the way it's going now, TJ may not be able to continue, so compensation is essential.

Sounds like a pretty good deal to us.

I would say if the Jackson family, the lawyers and the courts are ok with it, then, be it. I'm sure they made their research before they approved it.

I agree he should get compensated. And since Katherine is only half a caregiver now, her amount should be reduced by $9k month

Interesting that TJ needs more money to care for Michaels' children, yet looks to me has spent a small fortune on his face, curious what he's driving. Me thinks' this fella is helping himself to the daily expenses account established for the kids'. Kind of sickening since the entire family had been mooching off Michael since he was a child not even in death can he find peace.

I know executives with a Degree who work over 40 hours a week, and they don't get paid $9,000./month.

I think this is fair..if he was in it for the money..he would have asked way back in July so it's clear her really loves the kids and must legitimately need the help

First of all why is Katherine still in charge after that stunt she pulled leaving the kids without telling them. He should get paid for taking care of her a s s

Like we didn't see this coming. Another Jackson feels entitilled to M/J'S money. Really thought this was about love and not love of the Benjamins.......

I still say they are not his real kids. When have you seen a black male have white kids? C'mon. I'm sure the kids have there own Montey.
