A judge has appointed TJ Jackson, the children’s 34-year-old cousin, to be their temporary guardian because a judge feels as though Katherine really was ‘kidnapped.’
Katherine Jackson has just lost custody of her three grandchildren. The 82-year-old mother of the late Michael Jackson, flew to LA on July 25 after being gone from her grandkids for 10 days. Now, Judge Mitchell Beckloff has granted temporary custody to TJ.
“We have reason to believe that Mrs. Jackson has been held against her will,” Katherine Jackson’s attorney Sandra Ribera told Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff at a hearing Wednesday.
The judge believes that Katherine was prevented from “acting as guardian” because of third parties. Also, Diana Ross, and Debbie Rowe, the biological mother of the two oldest children, have been given notice of the order.
The order will be reconsidered at a hearing next month. We told you that Trent, one of Katherine’s nephews, filed a missing persons report over the weekend. Since then, Paris has been tweeting up a storm about how her grandmother was “kidnapped.” We also told you that Paris and Janet Jackson got into a fight in front of the home on July 24 and Janet allegedly slapped Paris.
