Katherine Jackson has lost guardianship of her grandchildren.
The 82 year old had legal custody of her dead son Michael's three children, Prince Michael, Paris and Blanket but today (25.07.12) her grandson TJ - son of Tito - requested and was granted temporary guardianship of the kids.
In California, Judge Beckloff said he wasn't suspending Katherine because of anything she did but because he is worried 'intentional act from third parties' are stopping her from carrying out her duty of care to the kids.
According to gossip website TMZ, TJ revealed in court today that he had a strange phonecall with his grandmother last night (24.07.12) and said 'I've never heard my grandmother talk like that. She wasn't sharp. The pauses, choice of vocabulary ... she has not used certain phrases like that before.'
The judge also ruled that Diana Ross - who Michael named as a back-up guardian to his kids in his will - must be informed of the situation as should Michael and Paris' biological mother Debbie Rowe.
He also stated the children must not be allowed to leave the state of California without court permission and advised TJ to see permanent custody.
Katherine is currently in Arizona with her daughter Rebbie but it has been speculated that she could be being held against her will.
Additionally police were called to Katherine's home in California this week after her children Janet, Randy and Jermaine, reportedly tried to remove Michael's kids from the property.
