Guardianship of Michael Jackson's kids, Paris Jackson, Prince Jackson and Blanket Jackson has been hotly contested over the past month, but it looks like we can all heave a sigh of relief as things are beginning to settle down: Today, ABC 7 reports that TJ Jackson has been named co-guardian of the children along with their grandmother, Katherine Jackson.

TJ is Michael's nephew, and Tito Jackson's son. ABC 7 reports that he's been serving as temporary co-guardian since Katherine took an unannounced trip to Arizona last month and didn't speak to her grandchildren for about a week.
