Katherine Jackson Reinstated As Guardian Of Michael Jackson’s Children

It seems that the Jackson family turmoil may be starting to settle down given that  Katherine Jackson has recently been reinstated as a guardian of her grandchildren and her son Jermaine Jackson has backed off on challenging his brother Michael‘s will.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff declared that the 82-year-old Jackson matriarch was doing a “wonderful job” with the late singer’s three children, Prince, 15, Paris, 14, and 10-year-old Blanket.

“It’s clear to me that the children are well cared for by Mrs. Jackson,” the judge concludes. “It is clear to me they love her very much.”

Judge Beckloff also mentioned that the children’s cousin T.J. Jackson – installed at an earlier emergency hearing as temporary guardian – would remain in that position and later share full guardian duties with Katherine.

The ruling came about after Michael’s brother Jermaine Jackson said he had withdrawn his signature from a letter calling Michael’s will “fake, flawed and fraudulent” and accusing the executors of the estate of mismanagement among other misdeeds.

“After much soul-searching, it is clearly time for us to live by Michael’s words about love not war,” he stated on Twitter. “In this spirit, I offer this statement by way of extending an olive branch.”

“Mistakes have been made and irrational things have been said on both sides in a highly-charged emotional environment,” he added. “It is time for us all to draw a line in the sand and move towards peace, co-operation, love and healing.”

    I feel for these kids. Alot of family members to help guide them in life without either parent. But most of them are all about the money that Michael Jackson made.I hope and pray at least for them that TJ Jackson will look out for them. I know the grandmother must love them but be serious she is 82 years old. They need a responsbilbe person to rely on and not wory about things.

    At least TJ is sharing guardianship. Now it’s crystal clear why Michael didn’t want anything to do with this family.

    I’d bet that she’s dying and she knows it. That’s what the secret visit to AZ was about and that’s why they have a co-guardian now.
