Katherine and TJ to Share Guardianship


Katherine Jackson and Tito's son TJ have agreed to share guardianship of Michael Jackson's three children, Paris, Prince Michael and Blanket...

Katherine's attorney, Perry Sanders, released the following statement:
"Later this morning, T J Jackson's attorney, Charles Shultz, will be filing a petition for TJ to be appointed permanent guardian of Michael Jackson's three children. The court ordered that this petition be filed pursuant to thetemporary guardianship he granted TJ on Wednesday of this week.
"However, after a very productive meeting yesterday, first between Mrs. Jackson and me, and then joined by Prince Jackson, TJ Jackson and Mr. Shultz, it was agreed by all that it is in the best interest of Mrs. Jackson and the children to file a modified joint pleading at the beginning of next week.
"With some changes, that pleading will essentially now legally reflect how Mrs. Jackson and TJ have often shared responsibilities of raising the children since Michael Jackson's tragic passing. Following reaching agreement, Margaret Lodise, the court-appointed guardian ad litem for the children, was brought into the meeting by conference call. Ms. Lodise confirmed with Prince that the agreement reflected the wishes of all the children. The joint filing will request that the court reinstate Mrs. Jackson and appoint TJ as a co-guardian of Michael's children.
"If the court grants this joint request, it will eliminate concerns such as the ones triggered by the events of the last few days. It will also empower TJ to take joint legal responsibility for certain day to day duties such as the management of household personnel, including security.
It will also make clear for school personnel and anyone else coming into contact with the children that TJ is authorized to act on their behalf. TJ has frequently attended school conferences and dealt with school related matters and this agreement, if approved by the court, allows for continuity as sanctioned by the court."
"Mrs. Jackson will then be freed up to focus on the more personal everyday decision making related to the lives and activities of the children. She would also remain in control of the children's familyallowance. Mrs. Jackson is extremely pleased with the prospect of enjoying the pleasure of raising Michael's children without the day to day tedium of items such as managing the large staff that goes with such a high profile family and focus her attention on being a grandmother and raising Michael's children.
She greatly appreciates the recent love and concern that supporters have shown for her and the kids, and she hopes the court will grant this request for co-guardianship. She is eager to simply enjoy her great relationship with these children, while deeding over some of the stressors that go hand in hand with being a guardian. Once the joint filing is made next week, it will be served on all interested parties and the specifics of what is being requested will be spelled out in the public record. Until then, no further official comment about guardianship will be made."

The only reason TJ was watching those kids was because he was living off Katherine with his wife and three kids. Why aren't they contacting Diana Ross?

chinaff said...

So all TJ has to do is push Kat down some stairs then everything will go to him. I think Katherine is truly in danger now.

CocoluvsMJ&WH said...

Why isnt Diana being contacted? Unless she told them she doesnt want to deal with the kids either. Why are they letting Paris take pictures and run her mouth all over Twitter like that? I am not just talking about putting family business on the computer either.
Anyway, I dont blame Diana. She raised her kids I am sure she dont want to raise anymore.

why would they contact Diana Ross? those arent her kids!

Anywho- sounds like Katherine just wants to remain control over the money -she doesnt really want to actually deal with the children. - good thing they have an uncle like TJ. or they'd be in some bobbi kristina shyt

Anon@2:31-- They would contact Diana Ross because in MJ's will, she is the back up guardian for the children, which is why I don't understand why they would appoint TJ temporary anything because he isnt listed in MJ's will

Share guardianship? When did we start paying family members living rent free under the same roof to nurture and guide children in the household? Smh

I don't like the sound of this. And I don't trust TJ.

I :Heart: Katherine, she's such a sweet lady. God Bless her.

katherine is too old for guardianship. let that woman rest!!

RAy J made her famous but TJ took her innocence (Kim Kardashian)

I agree with this, but not the money part. Everyone knows Katherine will shell out HER share to those greedy, broke bastids Randy, Rebbie and Jermaine to pay their bills.

I like TJ. It's clear he's been there from jump helping with the kids and Katherine recognizes this. He was probably the one that called and filed the police report that she was missing.

@3:35 PM too right. yts have learned how to use our weaknesses to destroy us and the Jacksons like so many blacks played right into their hands.

I don't know why everyone keeps mentioning Diana Ross. Just because MJ named her in the Will doesn't mean she has to accept that HUGE responsibility. She's not even related for crying out loud. Nice gesture, but you can't just dump kids on people. Apparently he didn't discuss the decision with her because it looks like she wants no part of it.

The Judge has to keep her informed because the Will is a legal document but otherwise, I don't think she cares. She's like two years younger than Katherine anyway, isnt she?

why do yall care so much about Michael Jackson's money and where it goes. I mean, really? How does Michael's money affect your bottom line? This is a family, for goodness sakes.

some of y'all sounding real dumb, as usual!! don't even know and your speculations are stupid because you really don't know . . .

again, why do you care if Michael's brothers get money? riddle me that!!!

Anonymous said...

2:19pm Really? Her own children kidnapped her and tried to drug her so they can get MJ's money. TJ is a great choice.

chinaff said...

@5:17PM Unless you were a fly on the wall and saw them drug her please shut the fuck up. TJ is no better than a dead hippo. Katherine said she wasn't kidnapped, sorry I'm going to believe her, not some bitch on the internet.

Geez Janet, couldn't you come up with a better name than chinaff?

Dianna Ross is the contingent legal guardian that Michael listed in his will. I guess fuck Michael wishes, it's only Michael's kids and Michael's money. Agreed! TJ and the rest of those thirsty Jackson's have been eyeballing Michael's money ever since he died and Katherine was put in charge. They feel that Katherine time is winding down and they want access to that money with no complications when she dies. SMH

T
itos' sons were the only family outside of Katherine and the kids named in his will.Check out all of the various wills published,that'
s why he was awarded co-guardianship.

Why do people keep asking about Diana Ross like she's running for office? Like there's some option for the public to vote Diana in as guardian of MJ's kids. If Diana Ross wanted to be the guardian she would be. All it would take is sending her lawyers down to the court house and filing a motion to request guardianship. If she's not willing to do that why would any of you waste your time asking about her?????? Do you not realize that you can't force someone to be a guardian. Do you think the Judge is going to order the Sheriff to pack Prince, Paris, and Blanket into a squad car and drop them off at Dianas house?? If she's not worried about it why are any of you?

They aren't contacting Diana because she was not part of their plan, the executers don't want her involved, they've already made a deal with TJ and Tito with which the children have agreed to. Now all they have to do is get rid of Katherine.

SNITCH! Please PLAY the COMMENT spoken by GLADYS KNIGHT on Paris and JANET aired on the VIEW. Thank you!

The way the will was wrote didn't make any sense. if you going to write a will then let it make some sense. Michael knew Diana was not going to want those experimental kids. Did he really think it threw. No, he didn't. What did he think was going to happen when Katherine gets old. The family is broke. He put the billionair kids to live with broke family that he didn't leave a dime to. Sometimes a will doesn't need to be followed. Michael should feel like a damn fool. If i'm leaving my kids with all that money. i better leave the people around them some to.

Anonymous said...

@8:19 That will was written for Michael; all he did was put his signature to it. I am sure he didn't even know that Diana Ross was written in as a default guardian; they had not been on speaking terms for years. In truth and in fact the will is written to the benefit of a certain group of people who will be prospering from the MJ legacy for hundreds if not thousands of years. Its quite simply a travesty of justice. If MJ hated his family so much why did he name his children after BOTH his parents.

Anonymous said...

First of all the will is rumored to be a fake. There were misspelled names on the will and it was quite dated. MJ changed his will every five years. If MJ decided to leave his kids with his mother, then he KNEW what he was doing. He evidently spoke with Diana about perhaps raising the kids in the event of his passing. MJ was hardly a fool. In fact, the more this mess unfolds, the more I see why MJ did not leave his siblings a dime. Their broke asses should have their own. MJ has supported that family all of his life. So, they are NOT entitled to anything he has. You don't know if Diana would help raise the kids or not. Call them what you will, but they are basically rich orphans who need someone to love and honestly care for them. Not vultures and leeches that surround them today.

if he hated his family so much he should have left them in a foster home. The biological mother is sitting and waiting. I hope she gets them in her custody. Let those kids go live with the biological mother so they can see who really is after money. I'm so tired of black people getting rich and then making a damn fool out of themselves. Michael fammily is HUGE. He hate every single one of his family members. he should have grown ass great nieces and and nephews.

At the end of the day the Jacksons have done everything they can. The Supreme Court held up the will so no use continuing to attack the will unless they have new evidence to prove that's fake.

The only thing they can do now is ask for all of the accounting and bank statements to make sure everything is coming and going where it needs to go.

What did any of their grandstanding do for them? They caused a big stink then ended up getting their mothers guardianship yanked and also effecting her money. What sense did that make??

Anonymous said...

@9:01

Most wills for a person on the level of MJ are written by someone else but the person it's written for dictates what they want in it. I doubt highly that the lawyers would pull a name out of a hat and just add Diana Ross to the will for shits and giggles. I think MJ probably always wanted to be Dianas child and was probably impressed by how well her children turned out. Wasn't a good choice but when has MJ ever been known for good choices towards the end of his life.

This situation is very sad, janet and her sibilings want to control micheals money!!!, that is why micheal left them out of his will. All this stress is not good for mrs. jackson i wish micheal could have found another method to go to sleep, then he would have not been murdered by conrad murry.
