Katherine and TJ Jackson Share Custody

2012 BET Awards – BET Music Matters Showcase

It’s official: Katherine Jackson is sharing custodial duties of Michael Jackson’s children with her grandson and the kids’ cousin, TJ Jackson.

Here’s what TMZ says on Tito’s son taking the reign:

As we previously reported, TJ was awarded temporary co-guardianship of Prince, Paris, and Blanket along with Katherine … but that was made permanent today.

TJ has received enormous support from the Jackson family to take a guardianship role, including from Katherine herself … as well as MJ’s kids. TJ has been a father figure to the children for years.

The judge told TJ in court to be mindful of the giant rift currently tearing apart the Jackson family — and asked TJ to make sure the children aren’t negatively affected.

As co-guardian, TJ will assume many of the day-to-day tasks involved in taking care of the children — including management of household personnel and security.

Now Mama Jackson can enter more spades tournaments. Enjoy the help, Mama Kat.
