The children of Michael Jackson, Paris, Prince Michael and Blanket have been returned to guardianship of their grandmother Katherine Jackson after they were temporarily put in the custody of cousin TJ Jackson after the 86 year-old went 'missing' for ten days.
She will now share custody of the children with TJ to avoid “outside influences” according to her attorney. In their legal statement, lawyers for the Jackson matriarch claimed, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Claimed joint custody would "insure that no outside forces try to divert the family allowance." They also hinted at a 'plot' to "gain control over Mrs. Jackson as a means to get at funds".
Katherine's absence came only days after her children sent a letter to the executors of the late Michael Jackson's estate claiming that they should be fired for committing “fraud” and “forgery”.
The three children, who inherited the entirety of their father's fortune when he died in 2009 then claimed that their mother was kept away from them for 10 days by their aunts and uncles.
The judge claimed that Katherine was doing a “wonderful job” raising the children following an investigation by the probate court. "It's clear to me the children are well cared for by Mrs. Jackson. It is clear to me they love her very much," he said.
