87-year-old Katherine Jackson has relinquished her guardianship duties over her youngest grandchild, Blanket (real name Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr.) to Tito Joe “TJ” Jackson, Blanket’s 39-year-old cousin.
According to Entertainment Tonight, “Katherine is no longer needed to fulfill the duties that were necessary when joint-guardians were appointed,” the documents state. “Given her own age  and the fact that [Blanket] is now 15 years old, Katherine feels that TJ is able to assume all necessary responsibilities of the guardianship for the Minor Child.”
TJ and Katherine were appointed joint legal guardian of all three of Michael Jackson‘s children, Blanket, Paris and Prince, following the King of Pop’s tragic death.
