Has the drama finally ended for Michael Jackson‘s three children?

Prince, 15, Paris, 14, and Blanket, 10, have been appointed new legal guardians, TMZ reports.

Tito Jackson’s 32-year-old son, T.J. Jackson, is now permanently sharing guardianship of the King of Pop’s children with their grandmother Katherine Jackson, a Los Angeles judge ruled Wednesday.

As previously reported, T.J. was awarded temporary co-guardianship of Prince, Paris, and Blanket along with Katherine. And today this arrangement was made official.

Reportedly, the Jackson family is in full support of this ruling.

The judge advised T.J. to be mindful of the ongoing rift tearing apart the Jackson family, and asked the young man to ensure the children aren’t negatively affected.

As co-guardian, T.J. will assume many of the day-to-day tasks regarding the care of the kids, including management of household personnel and security.

LL Cool J, It’s Awesome You Beat Up That Would-Be Burglar, But Please Be Careful!

On August 22, 2012, in Article, Celeb, eBooks, Entertainment, Fashion & Lifestyle, Movies, Music, Sports, Videos, by nadia

Every time we hear about a celebrity playing real-life hero, we are of two minds: On the one hand it’s awesome that people we look up to for their talent might also be admirable in other ways; on the other, we hope that playing a heroic character onscreen hasn’t dangerously inflated their idea of what they can actually do. So, first of all, bravo, LL Cool J for saving your home from the would-be burglar who broke in at 2 a.m

Every time we hear about a celebrity playing real-life hero, we are of two minds: On the one hand it’s awesome that people we look up to for their talent might also be admirable in other ways; on the other, we hope that playing a heroic character onscreen hasn’t dangerously inflated their idea of what they can actually do. So, first of all, bravo, LL Cool J for saving your home from the would-be burglar who broke in at 2 a.m. this morning. All those action scenes for NCIS: Los Angeles must have done you right.

“Of all the houses that guy could have picked, LL Cool J’s was probably not his best choice,” a neighbor told Los Angeles station KABC.

Second, we’re really glad this ended well. According to KABC, LL hit and restrained the intruder, a 58-year-old homeless man. What would have happened if he’d been younger or armed? We’re pretty sure you’re supposed to hit the panic button on your security alarm and stay outu of the way, not challenge criminals to a fist fight. And we’re only saying this because LL is a national treasure and we don’t want him getting hurt, not because we don’t think he’s every bit as fit and capable as he was as an up-and-coming rapper in Queens.

And in honor of LL past and present, here is what has of course been running through our heads all day:

Prince Harry’s Naked Photos: Do They Help Or Harm The Royals’ Rep?

By now, we hope you’ve seen — and probably enjoyed — the photos TMZ obtained of Prince Harry ‘s naked escapades. Thanks to a cell phone in the hands of one of the random people invited to his room at the Wynn, what happened in Vegas … is now a hot topic of worldwide conversation

By now, we hope you’ve seen — and probably enjoyed — the photos TMZ obtained of Prince Harry‘s naked escapades. Thanks to a cell phone in the hands of one of the random people invited to his room at the Wynn, what happened in Vegas … is now a hot topic of worldwide conversation. TMZ says reps for the royal family are “none too pleased” with his game of strip pool, but from what we can tell from other British sources, this won’t have any sort of serious repercussions for the third in line for the throne.

“We can stand on our lofty moral high ground and say, ‘how can he be so stupid and put himself in such a position’ but it is that buffoonery in him that we all love,” Ingrid Seward, editor of Majesty magazine told London’s Telegraph. “I don’t think it will damage the Royal Family at all. He’s the Boris Johnson of the Royal Family.” (That’s wacky London Mayor Boris Johnson, for those of you who didn’t watch the Olympics.)

“He’s been doing a lot of good work for the queen and getting a good reputation and although a lot of people think this is a great laugh, it does actually bring the monarchy into disrepute and will embarrass the queen,” Robert Jobson, who wrote a book about the prince’s military service in Afghanistan, told Reuters.

According to the Telegraph, as a captain in the Army Air Corps, Harry will probably get some scolding from the military for his behavior but no real punishment.

Sadly, we think there might be someone who feels the repercussions from these photos: the prince’s security guards, who really should have done something to prevent the pics from being snapped.
“I don’t envy their [security officers’] job. It must be a nightmare at times, trying to ensure that he doesn’t get into these kinds of scrapes,” Dai Davies, the former head of royal protection at the Metropolitan Police Service, told the Telegraph. Some question whether the British taxpayers should be footing the bill for preventing “scrapes.”

Clearly, it’s a national PR issue — if the U.K. wants Harry to represent their country as a fun-loving, hard-partying guy (who also served in the military and does a whole lot for charity), then we think they can save their money and let him be.
