Katherine Jackson Loses Custody Of Michael Jackson's Children

By Sowmya Krishnamurthy

After a series of strange events, including kidnapping allegations and a fight at the Jackson family house, Michael Jackson's kids have now been removed from the custody of his mother Katherine Jackson.

TMZ reports that TJ Jackson, Tito's son, has been appointed temporary guardianship of Michael's three kids: Paris, Prince and Blanket.

The judge reportedly said that Michael's mother Katherine, who was taking care of the children, was not suspended for wrongdoing, but that she was prevented from doing her guardianship by the third parties (who many believe is in reference to Michael's siblings Randy, Janet, Jermaine and Rebbie Jackson). Katherine's lawyer, Sandra Ribera, said that she believes Katherine has been held against her will while another lawyer, Perry Sanders, has stated that once Katherine returns to L.A., she will file a motion to reinstate herself as the guardian of MJ's kids.

This is following a bitter estate dispute and inter-family fight over the treatment and whereabouts of matriarch Katherine. RapFix reported about the Jackson family meltdown in which a fight broke out at Katherine's home in Calabasas, California on Monday (July 23). Multiple family members were involved, including MJ's daughter Paris Jackson and his sister Janet Jackson. Police arrived at the scene but no arrests were made.

Yesterday, Marlon Jackson told The Insider that despite reports that she is in Arizona, he still didn't know his mother, Katherine's, whereabouts. Marlon, sitting with Tito and Jackie Jackson for the interview, confirmed that Katherine is safe, but he has no idea where she went and why contact was cut-off. "She's doing well. But we have not spoken with her. We have not talked with her and I don't know where my mother is," he said.

The drama has not stopped Paris' tweets. "everyones taking control of me , it seems that the worlds got a role for me .. im so confused will u show to me you'll be there for me," she posted earlier today.
