The Jackson Children Guardianship Battle: A Timeline

The ongoing Jackson family drama over who will have guardianship of Michael Jackson's children may be coming to a close.

After a series of bizarre events, family matriarch Katherine Jackson had her guardianship suspended, and the children's cousin, TJ, was awarded temporary guardianship.
