Jackson's Mum Gets Temporary Custody Of Kids

MICHAEL JACKSON's mother KATHERINE JACKSON has been granted temporary guardianship of her son's orphaned kids.
The Thriller hitmaker, who died from a cardiac arrest at the age of 50 last Thursday (25Jun09), is survived by Prince Michael Jr., 12, Paris Michael Katherine, 11, and seven-year-old Prince Michael II, known as 'Blanket'.
The kids are currently being cared for by their grandmother, who filed a petition for custody for all three children on Monday morning (29Jun09).
A Los Angeles County Superior Court judge issued the ruling, but Katherine will have to wait until a 6 July hearing to discover who gets permanent guardianship of the kids.
Her attorneys told the court the children's biological mother, Debbie Rowe, has "no relationship" with them, and that if she won custody, it would be "detrimental" to the kids.
Rowe, who initially waived her parental rights to her two kids by the late pop star, is expected to challenge the Jacksons for custody of Prince Michael and Paris. An appeals court has ruled she is the legal mother of the children.
According to the Jackson matriarch's court documents, it is "not known at this time" whether Rowe agrees that Katherine should be the legal guardian.
The document continues: "Minor children are currently residing with paternal grandmother. They have a long-established relationship with paternal grandmother and are comfortable in her care."
