The Jackson family saga is getting uglier by the day! Tito Joe Jackson, the 34-year-old son of Michael Jackson's brother Tito, is lawyering up and getting legal documents drafted to become temporary guardian of MJ's three kids.
As reported by TMZ:
People familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... Paris, Prince and Blanket all want TJ to be their guardian because they believe Katherine -- their current guardian -- has effectively been kidnapped by MJ's siblings. The kids haven't seen Katherine in 9 days.
Under California law, a judge would not grant a temporary guardian for teenagers unless the kids were on board with the selection, and we're told all 3 kids are down with it.
As we first reported ... the Michael Jackson Estate is standing by and will support TJ's bid to become the temporary guardian if asked by the Probate judge.Just 15 hours ago, TJ tweeted to Paris, "I know it's completely unfair for them to do this to you and your brothers. We will keep trying. I love you."By the way, TJ is married with kids and is in a band with his 2 brothers. And get this ... he was Kim Kardashian's first love.
The fight over MJ's kids is out of hand. Hopefully the family can get it together and reconcile before it all blows up.
