If the Jackson drama was a publicity stunt to promote the Jackson brothers’ tour, it has backfired badly.
A California judge has suspended Katherine Jackson as the legal guardian of the late Michael Jackson’s 3 children. In an emergency hearing today, the judge appointed TJ Jackson, son of Jackson 5 original member Tito Jackson, as the children’s temporary guardian. TJ Jackson was a member of the 1990s music group 3T.
According to TJ’s uncle, Jermaine Jackson, Katherine Jackson suffered a mild stroke months ago which left her physically unable to care for the children.
“This is not a power play by TJ Jackson,” L.A. Superior Court Judge Mitchell L. Beckloff said at an emergency hearing today. “This is based on the allegation that Katherine Jackson is being prevented from acting as guardian.”
From Hollywood Gossip:
Katherine’s attorney was also present and said there’s “reason to believe” her client is “being held against her will.”
But that is supposedly changing now, as Randy Jackson appeared today on Good Morning America and said his mother is on her way back to California.
It appears as though Randy’s scheme – to convince his mom to challenge the authenticity of Michael’s will because he’s upset it does not name him or any siblings as benefactors – has fallen apart and he is being forced to cave in to public pressure.
Last night, Marlon Jackson broke down during an interview, pleading to learn the whereabouts of his mother.
