I Don’t Need to Be Blanket’s Guardian Anymore

Katherine Jackson is bowing out of the guardian biz when it comes to Michael Jackson‘s youngest child, Blanket.

According to docs filed by Katherine … there’s no longer any need for her to be the 15-year-old’s guardian. Katherine had been appointed joint guardian — along with TJ Jackson — of all 3 of Michael’s kids in 2012. 

Both Paris and Prince are adults now, but Katherine says because Blanket has reached his adolescence … TJ can handle guardianship on his own. She also points to her own age, 87, as a reason she’s stepping down.

Worth noting … Katherine had not seen her grandchildren for several months earlier this year. It’s still unclear how much contact she’s had with MJ’s children.

A judge still needs to approve Grandma Jackson’s request.
