A famous family in crisis
Katherine Jackson has been temporarily stripped of her guardianship over Michael Jackson’s 3 kids, and an L.A. judge just appointed Tito Jackson’s son TJ to become the temporary guardian.
Via TMZ reports:
And there’s more … Judge Mitch Beckloff advised TJ and his lawyer, Charles Shultz, to seek a permanent guardianship, after hearing stories that Katherine may have been held against her will “from third parties.” Translation — Randy, Janet, Jermaine and Rebbie.
Before handing down the ruling, TJ’s lawyer told the judge TJ got a strange phone call from Katherine yesterday. 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. TJ choked up as he addressed the court.
TMZ broke the story that TJ would make this move — a move supported by Paris, Prince, and Blanket, as well as the Michael Jackson Estate.
That strange call from Katherine may have been due to her being under the influence of more than just her emotions:
Katherine Jackson called her home in Calabasas at 2 AM today and again at 4 AM, sounding “drugged” and ordering that the security team be fired and replaced by Janet Jackson’s security … TMZ has learned.
A lawyer in court today made reference to “an incident” last night — this is the incident. Sources involved in the situation tell TMZ … people in the house were “alarmed and nervous” after hearing Katherine sounding heavily drugged.
Our sources say the prevailing view is that Randy and company have drugged their mom.
What in the world?! First Katherine is reported missing then it seems like all hell has broken lose within this family. Michael has to be rolling in his grave to fathom his children, mother and siblings are warring like this. What is going on with the Jackson family???
