A judged ruled Tuesday that late pop star Michael Jackson's mother Katherine and his nephew T.J. will retain their current guardianship of his children Paris, Prince and Blanket. Troubled teen Paris attempted to commit suicide earlier this month, prompting an investigation into the childrens' well-being. The results of the investigation and the judge's ruling came on the fourth anniversary of Jackson's death. Paris and Prince's biological mother, Debbie Rowe, has said she supports the ruling, but she will file for custody if there are any further issues. (story)
