Katherine and Tito Joe “TJ" Jackson were appointed guardians of Blanket and his older siblings, Prince and Paris Jackson (who are both no longer minors) on Sept. 14, 2012.

In the papers, Katherine said she felt TJ is able to assume guardianship for Blanket. For his part, TJ wishes to remain as the sole guardian, according to the affidavit.

Katherine signed the documents on Oct. 10, but TJ and Margaret G. Louise, who has been appointed by the court to investigate solutions in Blanket's best interest should other legal issues arise, have yet to sign the request.

The case has been assigned to Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff, who will still have to approve the request.
