T.J. Jackson has been granted the allowance he’s been asking for to help take care of Michael Jackson’s kids. E!Online is reporting that Michael’s nephew who has co-custody of the kids has been granted $9,000 monthly for the time he devotes to Michael’s children.
In a legal declaration obtained by E! News, Katherine, 82, estimates that “on average T.J. spends between 60-80 hours per week on matters relating to his role as co-guardian of the children.” In the document, filed last month with L.A. Superior Court, she also points out that T.J. has a wife and three children at home and states that, “The amount of time each week he dedicates to his co-guardianship duties, is an impediment to T.J. pursuing his own career and other income generating activities.”
It was Katherine who “originally suggested to T.J. That he be paid an amount in excess of the $9,000 per month that is now being requested.” T.J. rejected this amount, “saying that it was too much, in spite of the fact that the proposed amount was just slightly more than what the children’s full-time nanny earns.”
TJ shares responsibilities with Michael Jackson’s mother, Katherine, who has cared for the children since the singer’s death three years ago.
