TJ Jackson has been named co-guardian of Michael Jackson's three children, CBS reports. The nephew of the pop icon will share duties with Michael's mother, Katherine.

Earlier this month, Katherine Jackson regained co-guardianship of Paris, Prince and Blanket Jackson after TJ was named temporary guardian. The co-guardianship ruling had been temporary but is now finalized. TJ is the son of Tito Jackson.

Last month, Katherine Jackson was reported missing after Paris, Prince and Blanket were unable to reach her for over a week, leading to a family disagreement over the custody of the children and Katherine's whereabouts.

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
