Los Angeles, CA — Earlier today, and to the surprise of many a judge appointed Tito Jackson’s 34-year-old son, TJ Jackson, as a temporary guardian of Michael Jackson’s children.
In addition, the judge temporarily suspended Katherine Jackson on today, Wednesday, as the children’s guardian because she is in Arizona and hadn’t spoken with them in several days.
TJ Jackson appeared in court and sought the temporary appointment, but his attorney said he wasn’t trying to replace Katherine Jackson permanently
TJ Jackson said he spoke with Katherine Jackson on Tuesday, but she sounded strange. He says she was using words he had never heard her use and her voice at times sounded slurred.
The appointment came after days of turmoil among the Jackson family, with a relative reporting Katherine Jackson missing before she was located safely with other family members in Arizona.
Katherine Jackson is the court-appointed guardian of her son Michael’s three children, Prince, Paris and Blanket. The children have remained at the home they share with their grandmother in Calabasas.
The house was the scene of a family disturbance Monday.
