Katherine Jackson Granted Temporary Guardianship of Michael Jackson's Kids

Appropriate That Michael Jackson's Kids Went to Mom Katherine?

The late King of Pop's mother, Katherine Jackson, has been granted temporary guardianship of his three children — Prince, 12, Paris, 11 and Prince Michael II, 7. The kids have been staying with their grandma (who will seek a permanent arrangement at a hearing on August 3) since their dad passed. While the musician was alive he stayed close with his 79-year-old mom, but was also public about his tumultuous relationship with his father, Joe. The couple are still married. Given this, do you think the court made the correct decision?

i agree they should be with family...but NOT Joe Jackson! Anybody but him. Given what he did to his own children and he's not exactly a spring chicken Michael's children would be better off with somone else.

She is too old and she and her husband messed up their own kids, they shouldn't be given new kids to mess up.

She's 79! Not to mention MJ's dad was known to beat his cash cow. I think they should be with family, but not them.

Yes and no. I think when it comes down to it, the kids should be with people they are close to, and their grandma is that person. I know MJ had a bad relationship with his dad, but I do believe that he will be a lot better around his grandchildren who he is not pushing to be famous or anything. I don't know if MJ would have liked it, or if alternative arrangements were specified in a will. But what's best for the children at this time is definitely to stay near family. I also hope someone takes into account that Katherine Jackson is 79. I don't know about Joe, but he isn't a spring chicken either. We can't assume they'll live to 100. I hope by the time the two of them pass, the kids are old enough to care for themselves or they will have made alternative arrangements for them as well.
