TJ Jackson, Michael Jackson’s brother, has been taking care of Michael’s three children since last summer. However, he has come to the court to ask for funds to assist with caring for the three children. The executors of the estate claim say that TJ has shown great love and devotion to the children and spends upwards of 40 hours a week taking care of them. Up till now, TJ has received no financial compensation for caring for the children and has three children of his own putting him in a tight spot financially.
The court has granted him the sum of $9,000 per month and will pay it retroactively through the past July. This is a perfect example of why it is important to do estate planning. If Michael had created these important documents, the funds would have been readily available to assist with the care of his kids without going through the long, costly process of getting court approval.
We are glad to hear that the children are being loved and well cared for. This would be a great comfort to Michael and to all his family and fans.
