LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – TJ Jackson’s motion today was denied because of a Diana Ross guardianship provision. TJ Jackson, Tito Jackson’s son, had wanted to become the temporary guardian of Michael Jackson’s three sons. Jackson was in court today asking in an emergency motion that Michael’s mother, Katherine Jackson, be removed. But the court denied the motion because of one person: Diana Ross.
When the Michael Jackson will first surfaced years ago, fans learned that Michael had decided that his mother would be his children’s guardian. But in the event that Katherine could not fulfill her role, Michael per his will elected that Diana Ross would become the childrenâ€™s guardian.
Today TJ Jackson went before Judge Mitch Beckloff to claim that he had the support of the Jackson children to become their guardian. But the court denied that request, at least for now, because of the Ross provision. The court ruled that Ross was not notified of the motion / hearing and that Ross has yet to indicate her position on the matter.
The case is still be heard before Beckloff. No further court date has yet to been indicated to the parties currently in discussions this morning. Ross has yet to comment to news about the matter. UPDATE: Katherine Jackson has been removed and TJ Jackson has been named temporary guardian. He may now petition the Court for permanent guardianship within the week.
