TJ Jackson Says He’s Struggling To Take Care Of Michael’s Kids
Earlier last fall, Tito Jackson’s eldest son TJ stepped in and became the legal guardian of his late uncle Michael Jackson’s three kids to give them some peace and a break from the non-stop family feud that was taking place over Michael’s estate.
The family members and reps for MJ’s estate felt that TJ having the kids was the best thing, but now he says he needs some funds to effectively continue his daddy daycare duties.
TJ Jackson cannot continue to serve as a surrogate parent to Michael Jackson’s 3 kids without getting some compensation, so the Executors of MJ’s Estate are asking the judge to give TJ a reasonable amount of money to keep the ship afloat.
The Executors filed legal docs — obtained by TMZ — in which they say TJ has been extremely devoted to Paris, Prince and Blanket since MJ’s death. TJ — who is now a co-guardian along with Katherine Jackson — spends 40 hours a week caring for the 3 kids.
The Executors say it’s been a hardship for TJ — who is married with 3 kids of his own. Although he’s been a co-guardian since July, he hasn’t received a single penny for his services.
The Executors are asking the judge to allow them to pay TJ $9,000 a month, retroactive to July. They add, the way it’s going now, TJ may not be able to continue, so compensation is essential.
Sounds like a pretty good deal to us.
If this were any other family member, we might be skeptical of them getting the kids and then asking for money, but all things considered, this sounds pretty legit. Especially since Auntie Janet and her niece Paris might not do too well under one roof….
