michael jackson & kids*Uh oh, it looks like war has been declared by the executors of Michael Jackson’s estate.

Reportedly, they’re going ask the court for emergency guardianship of Michael’s 3 kids … alleging that Katherine has been effectively kidnapped by Michael’s siblings and as a result his kids are in danger and without supervision.

A clue as to why they are seeking guardianship might be found in the following press statement they released:

We are acutely concerned about the welfare of Mrs. Jackson, and most particularly with Michael’s minor children.

We are concerned that we do what we can to protect them from undue influences, bullying, greed, and other unfortunate circumstances.  While we do not have standing to directly intervene, we have monitored the situation and will continue to do so.  We believe measures are being put in place that will help protect them from what they are having to deal with.

Meanwhile, here is what TMZ is reporting about the situation …

Sources very familiar with the situation tell TMZ … the executors feel responsible for protecting the kids … since the kids are the primary beneficiaries of their father’s estate.

As we previously reported, Katherine went off the radar more than a week ago leaving her grandkids behind as Janet, Jermaine, Randy, Rebbie and Tito executed a long-standing plan to convince Katherine that Michael’s will was a fraud and the executors had to go.

Sources tell us … this plan has been in the works for months, but here’s the problem … Even if the will was invalidated, MJ’s brothers and sisters would get zilch because the prior will also gives them nothing.

And, although we’re told Randy wants to make a move to replace the executors, that would never happen. First of all, the executors will not be removed. And second, even if they were removed, the court would never appoint someone with no background in finances.

We’re told the executors are drafting the guardianship papers now and they expect to file in the next few days.

Stay tuned as the drama continues …
