Michael Jackson - Katherine Jackson Reinstated As Joint Guardian Of Michael's Kids

Michael Jackson's mother has been reinstated as his three kids' guardian after agreeing to share the responsibility with her grandson TJ.
A Los Angeles judge suspended Katherine Jackson as the primary carer of Prince, Paris and Blanket, and appointed Tito Jackson's 34-year-old son as their temporary guardian amid a family feud, which began when the matriarch was reported missing last month (21Jul12).
The 82 year old returned to the Calabasas, California home she shares with the youngsters after a 10-day "vacation" at an Arizona resort.
The veteran had initially vowed to fight the court ruling and claim back full guardianship, but subsequently had a change of heart and agreed to share the job with TJ.
The deal was made official in court on Thursday (02Aug12) - exactly one week after she was stripped of guardianship - but the agreement is not yet permanent and the new arrangement will be reviewed at a status hearing on 22 August (12).
Last week (26Jul12), Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff ordered an independent investigation into the welfare of teenagers Prince and Paris and their younger brother Blanket in a bid to determine how they were coping with the family drama, and the findings of the report were all positive.
The court-appointed investigator praised Katherine for doing a "terrific job as guardian", adding that "the children love her". He also told the court that the kids "also have a close relationship with their cousin, TJ Jackson", and admitted the plan for shared guardianship appears to be working well.

I'm sad for Katherine losing full guardianship because of the stupid actions of her own children, however, it's probably best for all concerned that she does'n't have to carry all the responsibility alone. My question is: does this mean that TJ will get Katherine's part of the inheritance - or part of it - when Katherine dies? That hardly seems fair to the children! Hopefully he's getting a stipend and when Katherine dies, the children will then get her 40% as Michael intended.
