LOS ANGELES, CA. (CNN) – Katherine Jackson’s role as permanent guardian of the late Michael Jackson’s children has been reinstated.  A judge approved a plan to add the kids’ cousin, TJ Jackson, as co-guardian during a hearing Thursday.

The ruling comes eight days after that same court suspended Katherine as guardian, because she’d been out of communications with the children and away from them for 10 days.

Diana Ross was named as a backup guardian in Michael Jackson’s will, visited with Prince, Paris and Blanket.

She has signed off on the plan, according to a family lawyer.
