Jackson nephew TJ named co-guardian

A judge has appointed Michael Jackson’s nephew to share guardianship responsibilities for the singer’s three children.

During a hearing in Los Angeles today, Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff named TJ Jackson as a co-guardian of the children, who range in age from 10 to 15.

TJ Jackson will share responsibilities with the King of Pop’s mother, Katherine, who has cared for the children since the singer’s death at the age of 50 three years ago.

TJ is the son of Tito Jackson and performs with his brothers in the band 3T. According to court filings, he has remained close to his cousins, Prince, Paris and Blanket, since their father’s death.

He was appointed a temporary guardian last month when Mrs Jackson was absent for several days and out of communication.
