A US judge is expected to name Michael Jackson’s nephew as the co-guardian of the late singer’s three children at a court hearing today.

Superior Court judge Mitchell Beckloff has said he is inclined to appoint Tito Jackson’s son TJ to share guardianship responsibilities with Jackson’s mother.

The 34-year-old was appointed as a temporary guardian for the children last month when mother Katherine Jackson spent several days at an Arizona spa.

Mrs Jackson and TJ Jackson have since agreed to share guardianship responsibilities for Prince, Paris and Blanket Jackson, who range in ages from 10 to 15.

The arrangement is expected to allow the Jackson family matriarch to focus on parenting instead of administrative duties.

Judge Beckloff has said he believes Mrs Jackson is doing a great job raising the children.
