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.

Wow he spends a whoppin' 40 hours a week with the kids? sounds more like he views it more as a job than a caring Uncle. And $9000.00/mo? thats just ridiculous since he isn't the full-time "care giver". Hell where can I sign up for this????

It's only fair!!! They require child support for 1/2 parenting. 40 hours per week doesn't sound like a lot of time, but it probably cuts into other things he has going.

I knew it was only matter of time before his true color$ $howed. The estate pays for everything for the kids. This guy isn't out a dime. He wants to be a paid baby sitter.

An EXCELLENT use of the funds rather than use them for mother who in turns shares with witless JOE.

What greedy pigs. Those three kids would be better off in boarding school and away from their so-called family. Who needs 9K a month taking care of 3 kids, two of whom are teenagers. I hope Paris & Prince get emancipated and leave their no good, greedy relatives behind.

Pay the man.

Why should he take care of somebody else's children for free?

From what I understand, the children are a handful.

It's just right to compensate him. If he's spending that much time with this family, and has his own family, he deserves it. He deserves a lot more than $9,000. I'd rather see him get it than those ungrateful siblings of Michaels, that abducted their own mother.

You people are ignorant. How is he greedy?

These aren't the kids next door. They are celebrity kids. LIkely spoiled and demanding.

Let him take just 20 hours a week and let something happen and you all will be blaming him.

You think it's easy parenting 2 teenagers and a third young kid who aren't yours when you already have children?

You think these kids have ordinary requests?
Do you know how expensive it is in L.A. /Hollywood?

STFU idiots.

He deserves compensation. It's a huge responsibility and with Katherine aging it will become even more demanding. Prince & Blanket will turn 16 and 11 this month and Paris 15 in Apr. That's several years of guardianship yet to be carried out.

I don't think it'a a "Good Deal". I think it's "fair". Big difference.
