Paris Jackson: Judge making no guardianship changes
LOS ANGELES -- A judge said Tuesday that he will make no changes to the guardianship of Michael Jackson’s three children after receiving an investigator’s report on their well-being and meeting with attorneys for their caretakers.
Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff ordered the inquiry after 15-year-old Paris Jackson was hospitalized on June 5. Authorities reported she took Motrin pills and cut her arm with a kitchen knife.
The judge ordered an investigator to interview Jackson’s children and report back to him.
Beckloff also met with attorneys for the children’s guardians, grandmother Katherine Jackson and their adult cousin TJ Jackson.
"I’m taking no further action," Beckloff told attorneys for Jackson’ estate.
The decision was announced during a hearing at which Howard Weitzman, an attorney for the estate, raised the issue of potential harm to the singer’s daughter that might come with unsealing "salacious details" of a choreographer’s recent molestation allegations against the pop superstar.
Perry Sanders Jr., an attorney for Katherine Jackson, has said Paris Jackson is physically fine and receiving proper medical attention.
