When not playing professional basketball, Caron Butler likes to spend quality time with his family playing Hungry Hippos, Twister, thumb wrestling, tug-of-war and basketball. Caron is quite the competitor as he doesn’t like to lose. Watch now as the NBA player tries to take down his kids in a series of physical challenges.
TJ Jackson, son of Tito Jackson, was appointed permanent co-guardianship of the late Michael Jackson’s children in a Los Angeles court yesterday. While several objections to such ruling were presented, the judge deemed TJ a good candidate for guardianship saying, “It’s clear to me that the children have a very strong, loving relationship with TJ and that they love the grandmother very much.”
TJ was previously given temporary custody of Paris, Prince, and Blanket after grandma Jackson was thought to be missing in action. The permanent guardianship order takes effect immediately, and gives TJ control over Michael’s estate in the instance of Katherine Jackson no longer being able to care for the children.
Not everyone in the family, however, is happy about the judges’ decision to grant TJ co-guardianship. Randy Jackson, the brother of the late Michael Jackson, wrote in a statement last month:
“In order to obtain temporary guardianship, TJ lied to the court. Rebbie, Janet, Jermaine and I would never harm our mother and we are doing our best to protect her and the Estate knows that,” Randy said in an exclusive statement to ABC News. The same people that are trying to manipulate my mother are the same people that were involved with my brother when he died,” Randy said in the statement. “The Estate is trying to isolate my Mother from her family JUST LIKE THEY DID TO MICHAEL, in order to propagate their lies, financial agendas and to protect a fraudulent will. “It is my fear and belief, that they are trying to take my mother’s life.”
