Katherine Jackson's guardianship of her three grandchildren has been suspended following a court hearing today.
Prince, 15, Paris, 14, and Blanket, 10 - the children of the late Michael Jackson - will now be cared for by their 34-year-old cousin TJ for the time being, who has just been awarded temporary custody of the trio.
It comes as Katherine is believed to be returning home to Los Angeles after 10 days away in Arizona - and amid claims the Jackson matriarch called her home in Calabasas twice in the early hours of this morning sounding 'drugged up'.
Katherine is said to have ordered that her security team be fired - and replaced by Janet's bodyguards instead, TMZ claims.
Members of her house are said to have been 'alarmed at nervous' after hearing Katherine - with sources telling the website the 'prevailing view is that Randy and company have drugged their mom'.
'I've never heard my grandmother talk like that,' said TJ, who once dated Kim Kardashian.
Saying he thought she was talking in code, he went on: 'She wasn't sharp. The pauses, choice of vocabulary... she has not used certain phrases like that before.'

Meanwhile Joe Jackson - who usually resides in Las Vegas - has now arrived in LA.
The 83-year-old father of Michael, who is estranged from wife Katherine, arrived at the Calabasas compound this afternoon in a black Mercedes before going inside.

Today's court appearance came as Katherine's son Randy - one of the family members who is challenging the validity of his brother Michael's will - revealed the 82-year-old matriarch is leaving Arizona, bound for LA.
She has been staying there for the past 10 days amid a deepening family feud over her late son's estate.
