Tito “TJ” Jackson has been granted co-guardianship of Michael Jackson’s three kids and according to TMZ he is now in need of more money.

TJ has been taking care of the kids since July without any financial assistance from Michael Jackson’s estate, which has been estimated at somewhere in the $1 billion range. According to the story, he has devoted over 40 hours per week (not sure how you measure that) to taking care of his niece and nephews Paris, Prince, and Blanket.

The executors are on his side, and say that it’s been difficult for him for care for the three kids in addition to his own family, which consists of his own three kids.

The executors are asking the judge to grant TJ $9,000 per month, retroactive to July. They mention that it is possible that without compensation he may not be able to continue his support for the children.

Seems like this judge needs to get Tito some money since the other co-guardian, MJ’s mom Katherine Jackson, is getting much older. It’s important for the kids to have someone that can look after them for years to come.

    So he’s not taking care of his late brother’s kids out of the kindness of his heart and to help his 70+ mother? These Jacksons make you go uuummm

    First it hard to believe that Michael estate is worth 1 billion. He died in debt and the owe more than 400 million. The estate since he died made a out 300 million and it been documented. So I don’t know were the get 1 million out out 300 million. Second he is just co parenting the mother gets 77 thousand a month to take care of the kids why does he need money to take care of them. I find it hart to believe that he spends 40 hours a week taking care of them. They are in school for 8 hours a day and I’m sure they they have activities after school. I find it funny that everyone talked bad a out Michael’s mom when they found out what she was getting a month to care for the kids and now it ok for TJ who in addition to what the mom getting wants money to care for them too. Huh.

  • That seems like a very reasonable figure. If not less than he should be requesting. Housing alone in California will eat up most of that money.
