Katherine Jackson Files For Guardianship of Michael's Kids

by at . Comments

A guardianship petition has been filed for Michael Jackson's children by 79-year-old Katherine Jackson, the late superstar's mother, according to reports.

She is asking the court to appoint her the guardian for all three kids. The petition states the kids have "no relationship with their biological mother."

That would be Debbie Rowe, in the case of Michael Jackson's older two children, Michael Jackson, Jr. (a.k.a. Prince Michael Jackson) and Paris Jackson.

The biological mother of his youngest child, Prince Michael Jackson II (a.k.a. Blanket) is not known, and believed by most sources to be a surrogate.

According to the petition, the three children of Michael Jackson are in the care of Katherine Jackson and they have "a long established relationship."

Michael Jackson's three children have been under the care of his mom Katherine (left) since his death Thursday. The future role of his ex-wife Debbie Rowe is unclear.

Katherine Jackson thinks it would be "best" to appoint her guardian of the star's offspring because they have been and are "comfortable in her care."

Debbie Rowe is named as mother of two kids (ages 12 and 11) in the petition. The petition says the value of Michael Jackson's assets is unknown.

As for Prince Michael II, Michael's third child, in the box where it says "mother" the box is checked "none." His DOB is listed as January 21, 2002.

The petition says it's "not known at this time" whether the mother (Rowe) will seek custody or if she agrees Katherine should be the legal guardian.

UPDATE: Katherine has been granted temporary guardianship of Michael's three kids. A hearing August 3 will determine if it will be permanent.
