More details are coming in about what went down in the courtroom Wednesday during a guardianship emergency hearing surrounding Michael Jackson's children.
Earlier today, it was reported that a judge granted TJ Jackson temporary custody of MJ’s children. Perry R. Sanders Jr., an attorney for Katherine Jackson, spoke with reporters outside the Los Angeles courthouse in a press conference.
According to Sanders, this is all just a big understanding that was blown out of proportion.
“This is creating some havoc that we need to nip in the bud,” Sanders told the press. “By the time you try to get everybody on the same page, the pages are turning so fast.”
Sanders said that Katherine Jackson, whose guardianship was suspended today, had been staying at the Miraval Resort in Tucson, Arizona. She had been vacationing there for some doctor-ordered R&R due to a high blood pressure diagnosis.
Mirval is a high-end spa where patrons go to relax, cut off from the pressures in the outside world. The section where Katherine was staying, did not allow cell phones or computers, which was likely the cause of all the recent confusion. According to Sanders, she is likely unaware of everything that has been going on.
Currently the 82-year-old is on a plane back to Los Angeles.
Judge Mitchell Beckloff appointed TJ Jackson temporary guardianship of Michael’s kids Paris, Prince, and Blanket. Sanders is disappointed in the decision and plans to revert this court order ASAP.
“I intend to get her immediately reinstated as the guardian,” said Saunders.
According to the attorney, TJ and Katherine are on good terms and, in fact, often trusts in her 34-year-old grandchild to care for the children.
Sanders has yet to speak with Katherine since all the drama went down.
He did travel to Tucson from Colorado Springs yesterday, however, he was not allowed to see or speak with her. When asked for the reasoning behind this, Sanders said that those caring for Katherine thought that the sight of her attorney at the resort might upset her.
Sanders ended on a positive note, claiming that money was not at the heart of the drama but the children’s best interests.
“The world loves Katherine and Michael’s children… there’s no two ways about it,” he said.
