The conflict of the Jackson family has somewhat calmed down, but their relations are still cold because four of Michael Jackson’s siblings have been reportedly banned from the house of Katherine Jackson.
According to reports, Blanket, Paris and Prince Jackson — who have been subjects of a short-lived custody feud — are currently staying at the Los Angeles home of Katherine Jackson, their grandmother. Meanwhile, T.J. Jackson, the cousin and temporary guardian of the three children, has been advised by lawyers for the Michael Jackson Estate on who should not be allowed in. As such, Janet, Jermaine, Randy and Rebbie have been banned from the house.
Charles Shultz, T.J.’s lawyer, said that he’s instructed the security team accordingly and that his actions are “in compliance” with the judge’s orders and are not arbitrary. Shultz also added that those who are on the list of people not allowed inside the house of Katherine Jackson were either present on July 23 “or in some way participated in the events surrounding that date.”
It was that time then that Janet, Jermaine and Randy arrived at their mother’s house and allegedly tried to physically remove Blanket, Paris and Prince. The three, together with Rebbie Jackson, have been accused by some people of being motivated by money to separate the kids of MJ from Katherine Jackson.
The will of Michael Jackson, which left his estate to his three children and provided sufficient allowance to their guardian, Katherine Jackson, is said to be standing in their way.
Since the death of the King of Pop in 2009, Katherine Jackson had been reportedly receiving a monthly allowance of $86,000 as the guardian of Blanket, Paris and Prince. As of the time, that money goes to T.J. Jackson.
While Janet, Jermaine, Randy and Rebbie are not allowed at Katherine’s home, Shultz said that they are not prohibited from contacting their mother:
“In addition, Mrs. Jackson is completely free to talk to whomever she chooses and is free to come and go with anyone whom she chooses.”
Previous reports have stated that Katherine Jackson went missing on July 22, which sparked the latest chapter of the family feud. Prior to that incident, five of Katherine Jackson’s children sent a letter, claiming that their mother is being mistreated by the executors of the Michael Jackson estate.
On Friday, Katherine’s attorney, Perry Sanders, told the Los Angeles Times that the 82-year-old had already been reunited with her three grandchildren. Regarding the splitting of Katherine’s custody with T.J., Sanders said, “[Katherine] is eager to enjoy her great relationship with these children, while deeding over some of the stressors that go with being a guardian.”
While Katherine Jackson was initially “devastated” to lose her guardianship over the children of Michael Jackson, a family insider claims that T.J.’s temporary guardianship “is good news.”
“It is not about taking [guardianship] from Katherine. They are trying to protect the kids from the other family. T.J. didn’t step in to remove her. He stepped in because she is not there,” the source said of the 34-year-old son of Tito Jackson. “He is extremely tight with his grandmother.”

Former Major League Baseball star Lenny Dykstra recently joined infamous Michael Jackson cardiologist Conrad Murray and singer James DeBarge in the celebrity wing of L.A. County Jail.
TMZ earlier reported that Dykstra is serving time for assault with a deadly weapon and lewd conduct. The retired baseball player is still adding to the latter charges with his raunchy in-jail antics.
According to TMZ, Lenny Dykstra sometimes covers his head with a sheet, pokes a hole around the waste area, and sticks his member through the hole in case anyone dared to look that way.
Spencer Vodnoy, the lawyer of DeBarge, told TMZ that his client and Conrad Murray are now good friends. The two often made fun of Lenny Dykstra and his perverted past-time pleasures.
As of this Sunday, James DeBarge will be released in a few days. The former husband of Janet Jackson was held for drug and assault with a deadly weapon charges.
Conrad Murray was sentenced to four years in prison for involuntary manslaughter connected with the death of Michael Jackson. He may serve only a little more than 2 years before being released due to overcrowded jail conditions. Lenny Dykstra will be keeping him company for a couple of years.
