Blanket Jackson, nearly 11, was photographed leaving his Karate class – and carrying his freshly earned orange belt – with his nanny in Calabasas, Calif. on Sunday (February 10).
It seems Michael Jackson‘s nephew T.J. Jackson – who was granted co-guardianship of the late singer’s three children along with their grandmother Katherine Jackson in July 2012 and was provided a reasonable monthly income to care for the kids- is requesting more money to do just that, reports TMZ.
According to court documents filed by the executors, the 34-year-old singer has been devoted to looking after the children for 40 hours per week but he is experiencing hardship as he hasn’t received any financial support since taking on the caregiver role.
It is proposed that Michael’s estate pays T.J. – who is married with three children of his own – $9,000 per month to adequately look after Prince, 15, Paris, 14, and Blanket with the amount backdated to the start of his guardianship last summer.
The former 3T singer – whose father is Michael’s brother Tito – has been sharing custody of the Thriller star’s children with Katherine since July when the family matriarch allegedly went missing and hadn’t been in contact with her grandchildren for days.
