Breaking News: Michael Jackson Estate Seeking Guardianship of MJ's Kids
The estate of Michael Jackson will be filing for an emergency guardianship. TMZ reports:
The executors of Michael Jackson's estate will go to court to seek an emergency guardianship of Michael's 3 kids … alleging that Katherine has been effectively kidnapped by Michael's siblings and as a result his kids are in danger and without supervision.
Sources very familiar with the situation tell TMZ … the executors feel responsible for protecting the kids … since the kids are the primary beneficiaries of their father's estate.
As we previously reported, Katherine went off the radar more than a week ago leaving her grandkids behind as Janet, Jermaine, Randy, Rebbie and Tito executed a long-standing plan to convince Katherine that Michael's will was a fraud and the executors had to go.
Sources tell us … this plan has been in the works for months, but here's the problem … Even if the will was invalidated, MJ's brothers and sisters would get zilch because the prior will also gives them nothing.
And, although we're told Randy wants to make a move to replace the executors, that would never happen. First of all, the executors will not be removed. And second, even if they were removed, the court would never appoint someone with no background in finances.
We're told the executors are drafting the guardianship papers now and they expect to file in the probate court in the next few days.
Katherine Jackson's attorney alledges:
Katherine Jackson's legal team claims Michael Jackson's siblings have concocted a diabolical plot to remove Katherine from her home and her "beloved grandchildren" … and part of the plan involved ambushing MJ's children.
Katherine's attorney released a statement saying, "Yesterday afternoon certain Jackson family members ambushed Katherine Jackson’s home after their vehicle tore through security gates on the tails of the SUV containing Michael Jackson’s children."
"After exiting their vehicles, Jackson family members ran up to Michael’s children as they yelled and began to aggressively grab at the cell phones in their hands. Out of concern for the well being of Prince, Paris, and Blanket Jackson, the children were forced to temporarily leave their home and taken to a safe location. An altercation ensued shortly thereafter and law enforcement arrived at the scene."
The statement continues, "Following the incident, it was learned that one of the family members who was part of the ambush admitted that a plan has been in place for the last three years to remove Katherine Jackson from her home and her beloved grandchildren."
"Prince, Paris, and Blanket Jackson have not heard from their grandmother since she left their home nine days ago to attend a series of her sons’ concerts on their Unity Tour. She never made the shows. Despite efforts to interview Katherine Jackson at her current location in Arizona yesterday, Los Angeles County Sheriffs confirmed that they were denied access to Mrs. Jackson by security for one of her children. “
The Michael Jackson Estate has also released a statement saying, "We are acutely concerned about the welfare of Mrs. Jackson, and most particularly with Michael's minor children."
The statement continues, "We are concerned that we do what we can to protect them from undue influences, bullying, greed, and other unfortunate circumstances. While we do not have standing to directly intervene, we have monitored the situation and will continue to do so. We believe measures are being put in place that will help protect them from what they are having to deal with."
Update: TJ Jackson has a lawyer drafting papers to have seek temporary guardianship of Michaels three children. They are supportive of this and the estate supports TJ as well. It is believed Katherine has been kidnapped by some of the siblings and Kathie is the children legal guardian. TJ is Tito's son and is married with children as well. Tito has been supportive of the children since their father passed.
