Executor’s for Michael Jackson’s Estate Want Temporary Guardianship for Children
It looks like the Jackson family is in a state of upheaval. Katherine Jackson was originally given custody of Michael’s three kids, Prince, Paris and Blanket, but she disappeared over a week ago leaving most of the family scrambling. There is proof that Katherine is in Arizona staying with her daughter Rebbie but now even the estate’s executors want a temporary guardian assigned according to TMZ,
Papers are being drafted by the lawyer for someone who will ask the probate judge in the Estate case for the temporary guardianship. We do not know the identity of that person, however, we are told the Estate is drafting legal docs supporting the temporary guardianship. The executors feel responsible for protecting the kids … since the kids are the primary beneficiaries of their father’s estate. As such, the executors will support a temporary guardian for the kids. We’re told the person seeking the temporary guardianship is also filing legal docs claiming Katherine Jackson — who is currently the legal guardian of MJ’s 3 kids — has been effectively kidnapped by Michael’s siblings, and as a result they are without supervision.
Randy Jackson was rumored to have wanted the executors completely replaced so that he could get his hands on the estate. The likelihood of that happening is slim to none because even if they were somehow removed, the newly appointed executor would need to have a background in finance, something Randy does not have.
Do you think the legal wrangling is really about the safety of the kids or does it have more to do with the money? Why would they report Katherine as having been kidnapped? Maybe she is having health issues that are impairing her judgment. Let us know your thoughts about this weird story in the comments below.
