Katherine Jackson Suspended as GrandKids’ Guardian; Nephew Approved Temporarily


The Jackson family imploded today, publicly. Judge Mitchell Beckloff has appointed TJ Jackson temporary guardian of Prince, Paris, and Blanket. Katherine Jackson’s guardianship was suspended. The judge almost didn’t hear the motion, and said that Debbie Rowe, mother of Prince and Paris, and Diana Ross, named in Michael Jackson’s will as successor guardian, had to be notified. Ross has never shown any interest in this. Rowe has approved of Katherine Jackson’s raising of her kids, but has expressed concern about the grandmother’s safety and condition. Rowe is said to be engaging a family attorney to represent her so she can support Mrs. Jackson and the kids.
