Katherine Jackson Surrenders Guardianship of Michael Jackson's Youngest Son, Blanket, to Tj Jackson

Katherine Jackson Surrenders Guardianship of Michael Jackson's Youngest Son, Blanket, to Tj Jackson
Katherine Jackson, matriarch of the Jackson family, has surrendered her co-guardianship over Blanket, her late son Michael Jackson's youngest child, who is now 15.

According to court documents obtained by Et, Katherine has filed papers to hand over sole guardianship of Blanket (real name: Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr.) to Tito Joe "Tj" Jackson, Blanket's 39-year-old cousin.

"Katherine is no longer needed to fulfill the duties that were necessary when joint-guardians were appointed," the documents state. "Given her own age [87] and the fact that [Blanket] is now 15 years old, Katherine feels that Tj is able to assume all necessary responsibilities of the guardianship for the Minor Child."

Along with Tj, Katherine was appointed joint legal guardian of all three of Michael's children -- Blanket, Paris and Prince -- on Sept. 14, 2012, following the King of Pop's tragic death.

Helen Mirren to Receive the Chaplin Award

Mirren in “The Hundred-Foot Journey

Oscar, Golden Globe, Emmy, Olivier, and Tony Award-winner Helen Mirren is set to add yet another trophy to her well-used mantle. The “Eye in the Sky” star will receive The Film Society of Lincoln Center’s Chaplin Award, a press release has announced. The gala, set to be held April 30, 2018 at the Lincoln Center, will feature movie and interview clips with Mirren, whose career spans over 50 years.

According to the release, the event “will be attended by a host of notable presenters,” so it seems likely that some of Mirren’s co-stars and directors will be reflecting on her incredible body of work and her famous sense of humor.

Mirren’s career kicked off in 1967, when she began acting with the Royal Shakespeare Company. Her many credits in film, TV, and the stage include “The Queen,” “Prime Suspect,” and “The Audience.”

“It is an honor and a pleasure for us to present Helen Mirren with our 45th Chaplin Award,” said Ann Tenenbaum, the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s Board Chairman. “From housemaid to Queen and everything in between, Ms. Mirren has delivered masterful performances of complex characters, upending stereotype after stereotype along the way.”

Previous Chaplin Award honorees include Elizabeth Taylor, Bette Davis, and Meryl Streep.

Earlier this year Mirren gave the commencement address at Tulane University. The “Woman in Gold” actress has been outspoken about gender inequality in Hollywood, but as she revealed at the event, she initially shied away from identifying as a feminist. “ believed in the obvious: that women were as capable and as energetic and as inspiring as men, but to join a movement called feminism just seemed too didactic, too political for me,” she explained. But she eventually had a change of heart. “I have come to understand that feminism is not an abstract idea but it’s a necessity if we — and really by ‘we,’ I mean you guys — are to move us forward and not backward into ignorance and fearful jealousy,” she told the attendees. “So now, I am a declared feminist and I would encourage you to be the same.”

Mirren will next be seen in “The Leisure Seeker,” a road trip comedy that follows a couple’s journey in their Rv. The film hits theaters January 19, 2018.

Helen Mirren to Receive the Chaplin Award was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Asia Argento, More Models Detail Harvey Weinstein’s Italian Connection (Exclusive)

Asia Argento, More Models Detail Harvey Weinstein’s Italian Connection (Exclusive)
Actress-director Asia Argento, and models Samantha Panagrosso and Zoe Brock have come forward with new details heightening the scrutiny on Fabrizio Lombardo, the former head of a short-lived Miramax Italy unit, and who allegedly acted as a procurer of women for Harvey Weinstein.

Two of the three women Variety spoke to also claim they were sexually assaulted by Weinstein. Panagrosso, in the latest set of allegations against Weinstein, says she was groped by the Hollywood mogul in a hotel swimming pool in Cannes, and then assaulted in the cabin of a yacht during the 2003 film festival. Brock alleges she was tricked into going back to Weinstein’s hotel, and Argento alleges she was raped by Weinstein after being taken by Lombardo to Weinstein’s room, a claim he has refuted.

Lombardo has denied Argento’s claims in a statement. Variety has reached out to his Italian lawyer for further comment.

With “Blade Runner 2049” playing on the big screen (where it must be seen in all its glory) amid debates about mismarketing and spoiler phobia, director Denis Villeneuve was relieved to be able to sit down and talk openly about making the movie — with a few well-placed spoiler alerts.

Like “Life of Pi,” and “Mad Max: Fury Road,” along with its main Oscar rival “Dunkirk,” critically hailed “Blade Runner 2049” pushes the state of motion-picture making to its apex. And the Academy — from the picky directors branch and the crafts to actors with a fondness for long-overlooked Harrison Ford — should reward the long-awaited sequel to Ridley Scott’s 1982 “Blade Runner” with multiple nominations.
