UPDATE 2:20PM EST
TJ's lawyer was just advised to have TJ move to get PERMANENT GUARDIANSHIP of the kids. It should be filed in the next 48 hours.
Katherine's lawyer, Perry Sanders, said he would oppose any effort to make TJ the permanent guardian. Sanders said he had no basis for believing he was kidnapped.
Los Angeles Judge Mitch Beckloff has granted emergency guardianship of Michael Jackson's kids, Paris, 14, Prince Michael, 15 and Blanket, 8 to Tito Joe Jackson, TJ, the son of Tito Jackson.
As reported by TMZ:
Judge Becklook just made TJ the temporary guardian and suspended Katherine Jackson's guardianship.
Before Bekloff appointed TJ ... TJ's lawyer said TJ had a strange phone call with Katherine yesterday and TJ said, "I've never heard my grandmother talk like that." TJ added, "She wasn't sharp.
The pauses, choice of vocabulary ... she has not used certain phrases like that before." TJ thought she was talking in code. As TJ addressed the court, he was choking up.
Beckloff said this was not a power play by TJ and ordered the Michael Jackson Estate to give TJ the funds necessary to take care of security and anything else that's needed for the children.
Before Beckloff appointed TJ, the lawyer for MJ's kids said the kids all support TJ getting temporary guardianship.
Another turn in the ongoing Jackson family feud. Stay tuned.
