Michael Jackson's cousin TJ won extended guardianship over the late King of Pop's youngest son Blanket in court this week, and now RadarOnline can exclusively reveal the 17-year-old "can't wait" to get out of his current situation under the care of his grandmother Katherine.
But in recent years, the 89-year-old ailing family matriarch has largely surrendered the guardianship to TJ.
"TJ has been a father figure to those kids since Michael's death and he always puts their needs before his own," a source told Radar exclusively. "The current situation that Blanket has been in is not working for anyone, and they needed to get a different situation going stat."
Blanket was eager to get out of his current living situation, as he's been "put in the position to care for Katherine," who the source says was "too weak" and "has no energy."
"It was not at all fair," revealed the informant of the teen.
"Prince and Paris are not around much, and she relies on him to help her. But Blanket was not equipped to handle that role, and he shouldn't have to."
And it was the siblings Prince and Paris that pushed for the change. "They wanted him out of that environment."
An insider said she also has high blood pressure, a heart rhythm disorder and breathing issues.
