Katherine And TJ Jackson To Share Custody Of Michael’s Kids

Katherine and TJ Jackson will be filing court documents Friday morning to share custody of Michael Jackson‘s three children, Prince, Paris and Blanket.

Katherine’s attorney, Perry Sanders, released the following statement:

“Later this morning, T J Jackson’s attorney, Charles Shultz, will be filing a petition for TJ to be appointed permanent guardian of Michael Jackson’s three children. The court ordered that this petition be filed pursuant to the temporary guardianship he granted TJ on Wednesday of this week.”However, after a very productive meeting yesterday, first  between Mrs. Jackson and me, and then joined by Prince Jackson, TJ Jackson and  Mr. Shultz, it was agreed by all that it is in the best interest of Mrs. Jackson and the children to file a modified joint pleading at the beginning of next week.

“With some changes, that pleading will essentially now legally reflect how Mrs. Jackson and TJ have often shared responsibilities of raising the children since Michael Jackson’s tragic passing.  Following reaching agreement, Margaret Lodise, the court-appointed guardian ad litem for the children, was brought into the meeting by conference call. Ms. Lodise confirmed with Prince that the agreement reflected the wishes of all the children.  The joint filing will request that the court reinstate Mrs. Jackson and appoint TJ as a co-guardian of Michael’s children.

“If the court grants this joint request, it will eliminate concerns such as the ones triggered by the events of the last few days. It will also empower TJ to take joint legal responsibility for certain day to day duties such as the management of household personnel, including security.

It will also make clear for school personnel and anyone else coming into contact with the children that TJ is authorized to act on their behalf.  TJ has  frequently attended school conferences  and dealt with school related matters and this agreement, if approved by the court, allows for continuity  as sanctioned by the court.”
I truly hope the Jackson camps settles down, even if it’s just for the sake of these kids at least.
