Executors of Michael Jackson's estate have filed legal papers asking a U.S. judge to give the late star's nephew Tj financial compensation for taking care of the King of Pop's children.

A Los Angeles judge awarded Tito Jackson's son and mother Katherine co-guardianship of the Thriller hitmaker's kids, Prince, Paris and Blanket, last July (12) following a major family feud, which began when the matriarch was reported missing during a 10-day vacation.

The 34 year old, who is married and has three children of his own, has allegedly not received any money to help cover the cost of raising his cousins, and now officials are requesting that he be handed $9,000 (£5,625)-a-month in parental support, according to Tmz.com.

They also ask that he be paid retroactively.
