The Jackson Family Saga took a twist today as matriarch Katherine Jackson was removed by MJ’s Estate and replaced by TJ Jackson, who’s now “temporary guardian” of the kids.

TJ Jackson, son of Tito, now has temporary guardianship old Paris, Blanket & Prince.

The order came down from the courts this morning at 1:34pm EST and will be filed in the next 48 hours.  TJ spoke to the court (through tears) about the “changes” Katherine has been going through saying,  “I’ve never heard my grandmother talk like that.  She wasn’t sharp. The pauses, choice of vocabulary … she has not used certain phrases like that before.”

So why was Katherine officially removed?  Court docs say she was prevented from doing her guardianship duties by “intentional act from third parties.”  And based on the saga we’ve seen play out for several days now at the Jackson compound, this comes as no surprise as there’s a link missing somewhere.

Sources say Katherine spoke to the kids via a phone call from Arizona on Tuesday and is acting voluntarily.
