TJ Jackson approves of Paris Jackson’s boyfriend Chester Castellaw.

The 17-year-old daughter of the late Michael Jackson has been dating the 18-year-old Real So Cal soccer player for a number of months. The young couple made their red carpet debut in May and TJ, who is co-guardian of the teen along with their grandmother Katherine, is happy with her choice of beau.

“I approve of him," he told ET Online. "No one's perfect, but he's a good boy, so I approve of him... He treats her well. She's happy."

But that doesn’t mean that TJ lets Paris do whatever she wants. The 37-year-old makes sure to keep a close eye on what the pair get up to.

“It depends on which day you ask me," he added. "He's a good kid. He's an ambitious kid, you know. He's a teenage boy, so like any parent, guardian, step-parent or adopted parent, you gotta keep an eye on him. I was a young man too once, so I keep a close eye of him."

As well as discussing Paris’ love life, TJ and his brothers Taryll and Taj, who are in a band called 3T, gave an update on their grandfather Joe Jackson. The 87-year-old suffered a stroke on his birthday while in Brazil last month.

"He's doing better," Taj added. "It's hard because [at] a certain age you start [to] cherish all the times that you have with them and stuff like that…He’s just such an important point to this family as well. I sometimes think he doesn’t get the credit that he deserves, but I’m so thankful for what he did for our family."
