In this edition of How The Jackson World Turns...
TJ Jackson, the nephew of Michael Jackson, has been named by a court as the temporary guardian of MJ's three kids, Paris, Prince and Blanket.
The legal maneuver was necessary because Katherine Jackson - who has served in this capacity for the past three years - has been out of contact with the children for over 10 days now, since a few of her kids took her away to Arizona.
"This is not a power play by TJ Jackson," L.A. Superior Court Judge Mitchell L. Beckloff said at an emergency hearing. "This is based on the allegation that Katherine Jackson is being prevented from acting as guardian."
Katherine's attorney was also present and said there's "reason to believe" her client is "being held against her will."
But that is supposedly changing now, as Randy Jackson appeared today on Good Morning America and said his mother is on her way back to California.
It appears as though Randy's scheme - to convince his mom to challenge the authenticity of Michael's will because he's upset it does not name him or any siblings as benefactors - has fallen apart and he is being forced to cave in to public pressure.
Last night, Marlon Jackson broke down during an interview, pleading to learn the whereabouts of his mother.
