Michael Jackson's Will

7/1/2009 12:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson's WillWe now know what's in Michael Jackson's will -- for starters, he never said where he wanted to be buried.

We've learned the will -- which will be filed today -- is 5 pages long. As for who gets what -- Jackson's entire estate goes to the Michael Jackson Family Trust. The trust documents are not included in the will and the contents of the trust remain confidential.

We're told the trust provides for Michael's children and mother, and distributes money to several charities.

If it all goes to a trust why is it five pages long? Once it is filed TMZ will have it right? Is it normal for trusts to be confidential? The world knows his worth and assets or is is payments that are sensitive?

Funny, the pedophile owes $500 million dollars and his assests are estimated at $200 million-did the will mention anything about paying off his debts first? This freak was such as an ass!!

If the will specifically provides for his children and mother then joe jackson has no right to anything. He has tp respect his sons wishes.

Well at least he got that part right, poor guy, so much crap to deal with in his life. A will & trust was the smartest thing he could have created to provide for his kids and the mother he adored. Nobody ever said he was dumb! Good job RIP Mikey.

It was unclear whether Jackson could be buried at the ranch. California Funeral Directors Association executive director Bob Achermann said state law would prohibit Jackson's uncremated remains from being interred at Neverland.

The state's health and safety code makes interring any uncremated remains outside of a cemetery a misdemeanor, he said. Cremated remains can be kept in a home or private mausoleum outside a cemetery, he said

10. . I'm impressed that he had his affairs in such good order. Posted at 11:28AM on Jul 1st 2009 by hunsister

Branca was his lawyer at the time, maybe he had a big part in it but some of the moves (beatles catalog, rights reverting back to him etc) were very savvy. I could never figure out if it was crazy like a fox or someone like the music lawyer arranging this stuff for him. It is a relief the money circus had to pull its tent down early and that his children are provided for.

Well Holy Tootscoot. I hope he doesn;' leave anything to that record label protoming pig of a father. And don't you love how Al "Tawana tell us what really happened" Sharpton showed up. That father should have been crying and not joking as he walked up the platform to be interviewed at the BET (Blinged Egomaniac Tonedeaf) Awards. Janet and Joe Jackson didn;t arrive together nor did they spend anytime together at the show. She's probably repulsed by him. And that Zoot Suit waeringh hanger-on that was with Joe Jackson should be nut-kicked back into the cast of Jellies Last Jam from whence he came. DISGUSTING. ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING
