Michael Jackson - Jacksons' Cousin Set For $108,000 Windfall As Kids' Co-guardian

Michael Jackson's nephew is set for a $108,000 (£67,500)-a-year windfall as guardian to the King of Pop's three kids.

Jackson family matriarch Katherine Jackson has filed papers in Los Angeles stating her grandson Tj deserves $9,000 (£5,600)-per-month from her late son's estate to care for Paris, Prince Michael and Blanket.

Tj was granted joint guardianship of the kids last year (12), but initially turned down the cash, insisting it was too much.

Now Katherine claims Tj has accepted he should be paid for all the time and effort he puts in as a carer.

In the legal papers, obtained by Tmz.com, she claims her son Tito's boy spends 300 hours per month playing father figure to his cousins, helping them with their schoolwork and attending school functions, including parent-teacher conferences.

A judge now has to sign off on the deal.

I'm curious about something anyone with children knows that it takes a lot of money to raise one child, so why is there always question and smart comments when the person who the courts put in charge of MJ's kid need the necessary amount to raise three. This young man has three kids of his own and he has taken on the responsibility of taking good care and be a respectable father figure in these chidlren's live. They go to private school and two are teenagers. As kids get older to more they need. If MJ was alive these children would not want f or anything and I believe that he would be pleased to know that some is taking good care of his children. Everytime the words Jackson and Money are put in one sentence instantly the thought comments go to what a greedy family these people are. Please check for yourselves and see how much each Jackson sibling is worth, I'll bet it will blow your minds. MJ has made sure that his mom and his kids are well taken care of for life. You have to understand that not only did he not know he would died so young but he also didn't know the judge would add another person as care taker so the finances have to adjust for that. Nobody is taking MJ's money and that you can take to the bank!

Wish people would ever STFU winging about the family. Certain members of the family, (MORE than all the lying vultures, tabloid money-seeking back-stabbers, disgruntled ex-employees, etc.) have the RIGHT to seek additional funds to help them feed, clothe, school and entertain three more additional family members - And ESPECIALLY when those particular family members who are growing older, thus more expensive, and especially the fact that they have been accustomed to a life-style that is above the average one. I'm sure they would struggle a little to rear the children on nothing more if they had to, as they are family at the end of the day. However, if whomever in the family has a RIGHT to seek extra allowance, WHY NOT!?! Don't try to tell me not ONE of you or your family would avail of that RIGHT if you had it as an option. The way some people whine on about them, You'd swear each and every member of the Jackson family were all multi-millionaires who were trying to grab more simply in order to stash it away on top of an already existing gold mine. Sorry, but I would need more EVIDENCE that they are up to no good before taking it on myself to constantly mouth off against them over this - And I CERTAINLY won't do it to please the anti-Jackson trouble-starting media, either…They’re just loving watching all the others talk the family down.
