The family drama rages on as T.J. Jackson, the late King of Pop's nephew, prepares to head to court today to file an official motion to become the permanent co-guardian of his uncle's children Paris, Blanket, and Prince. If granted legal permission, T.J. would share his guardian role with Michael's mother and current guardian of the children Katherine Jackson. 

"Charles Shultz [T.J. Jackson's lawyer] will give notice to interested persons that we intend to file a pleading tomorrow regarding co-guardianship," Katherine Jackson's attorney Perry Sanders says in a statement yesterday. "No further statements will be made regarding this pleading until subsequent to us learning how the Court wishes to proceed." 

In other Jackson news, Janet quickly found a way to put those Paris-abuse rumors to rest. After threatening to sue celebrity site "TMZ," where the alleged news of Janet's slapping and cursing out her niece Paris first broke, the site has since begun to sing a different tune. 

"Janet Jackson did not slap or verbally abuse Paris Jackson during a confrontation at the Jackson family home in Calabasas last week," TMZ said in a post yesterday. "Although we believed the story to be true when we published it, we have now determined it was not correct ... Janet did not slap or otherwise touch Paris, nor did she verbally abuse her."
