Los Angeles: In the wake of an ongoing family feud, the estate of Michael Jackson has barred some members of the extended family from the home shared by his three children and mother Katherine.

The estate has drawn up a list of approved guests, requested by an attorney for TJ, the son of Tito Jackson, who was appointed temporary guardian of the children last week, reported CNN online.

Michael's children Prince, Paris and Blanket live with their grandmother Katherine in a gated community in suburban Calabasas.

Last week, while Katherine was away resting in Arizona, Michael's siblings Randy, Janet and Jermaine apparently burst into the home, demanding that the children come with them.

Police were called and "two male adults became violent", according to police officers.

"Given the circumstances of the last two weeks, and in order to protect the children and Mrs Jackson, the Executors believe that it would not be appropriate to allow the following individuals to enter the residence or its grounds," said an email sent by estate lawyer Howard Weitzman to the
lawyer for TJ.

Randy, Janet, Jermaine and Rebbie alongwith their children and anyone involved in the recent events that led to Katherine's separation from and inability to communicate with Michael's children have been barred from entering their home.

The Los Angeles Sheriff's Department is investigating the scuffle as a possible battery.
