MJ’s nephew, TJ Jackson, was appointed co-guardian of his three kids last year, and now he is asking the executors of his Michael Jackson’s estate to compensate him for his parental duties. Kids can be expensive!


TJ Jackson cannot continue to serve as a surrogate parent to Michael Jackson’s 3 kids without getting some compensation, so the Executors of MJ’s Estate are asking the judge to give TJ a reasonable amount of money to keep the ship afloat.

The Executors filed legal docs — obtained by TMZ — in which they say TJ has been extremely devoted to Paris, Prince and Blanket since MJ’s death. TJ — who is now a co-guardian along with Katherine Jackson — spends 40 hours a week caring for the 3 kids.

The Executors say it’s been a hardship for TJ — who is married with 3 kids of his own. Although he’s been a co-guardian since July, he hasn’t received a single penny for his services.

The Executors are asking the judge to allow them to pay TJ $9,000 a month, retroactive to July. They add, the way it’s going now, TJ may not be able to continue, so compensation is essential.

Sounds like a pretty good deal to us.
