Katherine Jackson

TJ Deserves $9k per Month

to Care for MJ's Kids

3/12/2013 1:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


TJ Jackson deserves $9,000 per month to care for Michael Jackson's 3 kids ... this according to MJ's mother Katherine Jackson.

Katherine just filed legal docs ... asking the court to sign off on her request to have the Michael Jackson Estate pay her grandson TJ for his care-giving duties for Paris, Blanket and Prince.

In the docs, Katherine says she originally suggested to TJ that he be paid more than $9k per month, but TJ rejected the deal ... saying it was simply too much money.

In the docs, filed yesterday in L.A. County Superior Court, Katherine claims TJ eventually agreed to $9k -- $108,000 per year -- which is roughly equivalent to the salary earned by the children's full-time nanny.

Katherine says the salary is justified because he spends an average of 300 hours per month caring for the kids -- taking them to various appointments, extracurricular activities (karate, athletics, guitar lessons) and social outings.

Katherine says TJ -- Tito's 34-year-old son -- also helps the kids with their schoolwork and attends all school functions, including back-to-school nights and parent-teacher conferences.

A judge has yet to rule.

Does TJ have time to raise his own kids?

However, better for a family member to share the money instead of the Executives of The Estate.

You guys should think twice about all the stuff spread in the internet about Michael Jackson & his family. Most ppl forget how loving & caring Michael was, what his true message was. And mostly what he all gave to us! We should be thankful - and not abandon him. Always think about him as a true humanitarian with a pure heart! Not weird, not wacko!
Since his passing this crap became worse. Leave his family alone; stop judging in a false way. It’s painful & it’s disgusting. For reading the truth about the trial check following links. Then make your conclusions. Thank you! L.O.V.E. <3

Katherine Jackson reminds me of my JW mom when it comes to money. Cant $10 billion per child pay their own $9k to their new TJ nanny? How does daddy's income given to child not pay for the nanny that daddy's income previous paid. Seems to me that when daddy died, nanny was getting paid more then the children were.
