urx unit loader Katherine Jackson granted temporary guardianship of Michael Jackson's three kids


According to Us Weekly, she will get what she wants – at least for a little while. The Jackson matriarch was granted temporary custody today at the Los Angeles Superior Court. However, her request for temporary guardianship of their estates was denied.

Permanent guardianship won't be determined until a hearing Aug. 3.  

Michael has two children with ex Debbie Rowe — Prince, 12, and Paris, 11 — and in today's petition it was stated that the kids have "no relationship with their biological mother.” His third child, Prince Michael II, 7, was born to a surrogate whose identity and whereabouts are listed as "unknown."  

The children have been staying with Katherine at the family's Encino estate since their father's death Thursday.

Last weekend, Katherine was seen buying sleeping bags and toys at a Target for her guests. Keep reading to see the video.


In a statement, Rowe's attorney, Marta Almli, said:

"Ms. Rowe's only thoughts at this time have been regarding the devastating loss Michael's family has suffered. Ms. Rowe requests that Michael's family, and particularly the children, be spared such harmful, sensationalist speculation and that they be able to say goodbye to their loved one in peace."
