After any international superstar passes, itâ€™s only fitting that the estate and custody battles begin just days after the legends are gone. In this case, a bitter custody war let loose after Michael Jackson saw an untimely death. From his mother, Katherine Jackson to his father, Joe Jackson, all the way to his brothers, a familial war let loose as everyone seemed to want a piece of MJâ€™s kids, Paris, Prince and Blanket.
As the Jackson family appeared to be in and out of courts every other day after the King of Popâ€™s passing, mouths dropped when a judge awarded temporary custody to Tito Jacksonâ€™s son, TJ Jacksonâ€”Michaelâ€™s nephew. Then, in July of last year, the courts agreed to grant co-guardianship of MJâ€™s kids to his mother and nephew. But raising kids is no picnic as TJ Jackson has requested $9000 per month from Michael Jacksonâ€™s estate to steadily care for his children. And surprisingly, Katherine believes the request is beyond reasonable.
So while custody battles are becoming Hollywoodâ€™s new trending topic, BlackEnterprise.com is recounting Tinsel Townâ€™s most recently heinous and publicized custody battles.
