Jackson's Mom Gets Temp. Guardianship

The children of Michael Jackson, ages 7, 11 and 12, were placed under the temporary guardianship of their paternal grandmother, Katherine Jackson, by a Los Angeles judge.

The biological mother of Jackson's two oldest children, Debbie Rowe, will be invited to a hearing next Monday in which the judge will consider who should have custody of them. She has, so far, not publicly indicated whether she will challenge the Jacksons for custody.

The Jackson family said it has not found a will for the singer, which would leave the division of his estate to the court.

The judge also gave Katherine Jackson temporary control of her son's "tangible personal property."

I hope Grandma gets the kids.

Yes, this is at the top of every lawyers WISH LIST.

I hope Grandma Jackson gets her papers in perfect order - immediately due to the change in her life or all of this can end up in Grandpa Jackson's lap, which is not what Michael Jackson wants.

OR this could be in court for the next 15-20 years with all current and future income and assets going to the L A W Y E R S.

At 79 years of age, with all this added stress of 3 grandchildren and the loss of her son, Grandma Jackson is especially at risk for medical events which could leave her damaged or worse.
