Judge to rule on guardianship of Michael Jackson's children
Tito Joe "T.J." Jackson, 34, is expected to share custody of the late pop singer's children -- Prince, 15; Paris, 14; and Blanket, 10 -- with Katherine Jackson.
His co-guardianship came at the request of Katherine Jackson and the children. He has helped raise the three since their father's 2009 death.
Diana Ross, named in Jackson's will as a backup guardian, met with the children in early August and approves of the arrangement, their attorney said.
Because of her disappearance, a Los Angeles County judge stripped her of custody, transferring temporary guardianship to T.J. Jackson.
Katherine Jackson denied being kidnapped and called the ruling "based on a bunch of lies." She was reappointed guardian in early August.
