A Los Angeles judge just granted TJ Jackson temporary guardianship of MJ’s three kids. The judge stated that through no wrongdoing on Katherine’s part she is unable to perform her duties. The judge stated that Katherine was prevented from her duties by intentional acts from third parties. He also suggested that TJ needs to file for permanent custody. The judge stated that Diana Ross and Debbie Rowe should be notified. The kids are not to be taken from the state of California. The estate was told to give TJ access to funds to care for the kids and provide for their security.
TJ choked up when testifying before the court about an odd phone call with his grandmother last night. According to TMZ:
TJ’s lawyer said TJ had a strange phone call with Katherine yesterday and TJ said, “I’ve never heard my grandmother talk like that.” TJ added, “She wasn’t sharp. The pauses, choice of vocabulary … she has not used certain phrases like that before.” TJ thought she was talking in code.
It looks like Randy deciding to rush Katherine back home was a day late and a dollar short. Team Randy needs to have a seat and accept the fact they are not going to get at MJ’s money no matter how hard they try. The kids were in school and did not attend the hearing. Their lawyer fully supported the petition to make TJ their legal guardian.
