T.J. Jackson needs more monetary support to look after MJ's kids

Washigton, Feb 7 (ANI): T.J. Jackson needs more money to look after Michael Jackson's children, it has been revealed.

Executors for the late King of Pop's estate have requested a judge provide his nephew a reasonable monthly income to provide care for the famous offspring, TMZ.com reported.

T.J was granted co-guardianship of the late singer's three children, Prince, Paris and Blanket, along with their grandmother Katherine Jackson in July 2012.

According to court documents filed by the executors, while the 34-year-old singer has been devoted to looking after the children for 40 hours per week, he is experiencing hardship as he hasn't received any financial support since taking on the role of surrogate father.

It is proposed that Michael's estate pays T.J. - who is married with three children of his own - 9,000 dollars per month to adequately look after Prince, Paris and Blanket, with the amount backdated to the start of his guardianship last summer.

The former 3T singer, whose father is Michael's brother Tito, has been sharing custody of the 'Thriller' star's children with Katherine since July when the family matriarch allegedly went missing and hadn't been in contact with her grandchildren for days.

The change in guardianship came amidst a messy family dispute in which five of Michael's siblings - Janet, Jermaine, Randy, Rebbie and Tito Jackson - claimed Katherine was being misled by the executors of the estate and ill-advised by her manager and lawyer.

A plan was hashed out last year where responsibility for managing staff and security at their California home would shift to TJ. (ANI)
