Jackson Family Saga: Katherine Loses Custody of MJ’s Kids
Jackson Family Saga: Katherine Loses Custody of MJ's Kids
Katherine Jackson has temporarily lost custody of MJ's children. The saga started when a family member reported Katherine missing a few days ago. Randy, Janet, and Jermaine have been accused of "kidnapping Katherine" and keeping her from contact with MJ's kids and other members of the family, which Randy has denied. It has deeply divided the family. TJ Jackson filed for temporary guardianship. TMZ reports:
Katherine Jackson has been temporarily stripped of her guardianship over Michael Jackson's 3 kids, and an L.A. judge just appointed Tito Jackson's son TJ to become the temporary guardian.
And there's more … Judge Mitch Beckloff advised TJ and his lawyer, Charles Shultz, to seek a permanent guardianship, after hearing stories that Katherine may have been held against her will "from third parties." Translation — Randy, Janet, Jermaine and Rebbie.
Before handing down the ruling, TJ's lawyer told the judge TJ got a strange phone call from Katherine yesterday. 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. TJ choked up as he addressed the court.
TMZ broke the story that TJ would make this move — a move supported by Paris, Prince, and Blanket, as well as the Michael Jackson Estate.
The judge said Katherine was not suspended for wrongdoing, but that she was prevented from doing her guardianship by the third parties who are clearly Randy, Janet, Jermaine and Rebbie.
