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.

57. This is way too much coverage of MJ's death. This is ridiculous. I'm pretty much done with TMZ for this reason. There IS other news going on in the entertainment industry....Posted at 12:02PM on Jul 1st 2009 by cara0426

Don't let the your mouse pinch your fingers on the way out. Have you been on T M Z long? Recall Anna Nicole, Brittany, Heath...all 3 of those went on for days if not weeks it is what they do here and why so many come to visit. You should check to the right of your beotching under "hot celebrities" and click on one that interests you.

Well, this is really all starting to make sense, now. The family hasn't announced any burial/funeral plans because he probably wanted to be cremated. All I've heard is a PRIVATE memorial after Friday's public viewing. Also, the new drugs that they now are saying killed him, it makes sense now why the doctor did some of the things he did. Why Lidocaine was found there, why he didn't call for help immediately. He is the one who administered the drug that killed Michael. Well, atleast he didn't lie. He didn't give Michael pain killers, but he failed to mention a deadly dose of tranquilizer. It HAD to be him. You can't get that medication unless you ARE a doctor. I feel sorry for him when this all comes out. He will probably go to prison.

what    

Joe and Katherine Jackson filed for bankruptcy in 1999 to the tune of 27 million dol;lars. the only asset was propertyt in Vegas estimated 290 thousand. This proves that neither Kathleen or Joe are good financial managers. They should not be allowed near any unmonitored money. Joe is and always will be a brutal man, Katherine lacks good judgement when dealing with his brutality. She allowed him to beat Michael. This woman should not have custody of those children unless she is monitored by children protective services. or some one appointed by the court to keep Joe away from Michaels children. They are both still married and he gets half of what ever she gets and this includes the children. Hopefully the trust has appointed a guardian for the children this woman is 79 years old and I am sure is not in control of her own urine. Do not give her control of these children.

what    

Joe and Kathleen filed for banruptcy in 1999 to the tune of 27 million dollars. Their only assest was property in Vegas. The debt was in credit cards, automobiles and other unwise spending. They certianly do not know lhow to handle money and they are not legally separated so brutal joe will have his hands on the children. Kathreine lacks good judgement she was unable to prevent him from beating Michael, what makes people think she has better judgement now that she is 79 years old? Probably can't control her own urine let alone protect those children. Has anyone heard her speak perhaps she is not mentally capable of caring for these children.

#75, I hope you get accused of something you didn't do, and nobody believes you and then you die. You know NOTHING. Karma indeed. People like you who JUDGE other people and who don't respect the dead are just a big joke - I pity your children if you're a father.

He may have debt over $500,000,000. I wish his children the best of luck in life.

Wow, this is Just so sad!!!!!!! If Joe has anything to do with those Children, he will do what he did to Michael--------torment and belittle them.................I hope Katherine is smart enough to step up to the coward and don't let the same thing happen to those children. If you see all the Pictures of Joe within the last couple of days since Michaels death, he has smiles. Is he really saddened by Michaels death??????

I feel for Michael and the life he had, children are created from what comes from the home growing up--------SO JOE-- TAKE A BOW--- YOU HELPED DESTROY OUR PRINCE OF POP!!!!

Knowing him, he probably wanted to be frozen and "brought back to life" as in cryonics or whatever it's call, OR put on display or carted around the world on display like Stalin

OR frozen like Han Solo - hey just sayin' - the guy WAS Wierd with a HUGE Capital "W" you know

I'm sick of 24/7 wall-to-wall MJ coverage - Good God can't they give us a BREAK?

It's worse than Anna Nicole Smith and THAT was BAD enough

Good luck to all of you who live in CA too this weekend with that "entourage" that is going to escort his body supposidly from LA to his ranch! Just happens to be on a BUSY summer holiday travel weekend too as IF there wasn't enough traffic

Oh well, when you're a "king" the world revolves around and shuts down for you as well as the entire country

The only mortal "king" of music as far as I'm concerned was ELVIS and ALWAYS will be

But as Elvis often said when HE refused fans offers of a crown, there IS only ONE "KING" and that is Lord Jesus Christ

I notice that MJ didn't have a problem though with wearing crowns all over his clothing, jewelry and on his head so I guess he outranks God AND Elvis! Not in MY book!

Yes he could sing and dance but he's not Elvis and he's certainly not GOD although I have heard idiots all over tv carrying on about how he was "bigger than God" - AGAIN, not in MY book!

Elvis and the Beatles certainly revolutionized music forever too!

Elvis abused RX drugs and it killed him young as well as his excesses. Same with MJ. VERY sad for both but that's what they become - they become so huge no one can tell them or WON'T tell them NO when they want drugs and all the wierdness they participate in with drugs and money grubbing hangers-on and so-called "doctors"

I'm really sad he died BUT move on people! Enough's enough.

AND if I have to keep seeing Al Sharpton and Papa Joe and that son of Marlon Brando who has taken over Larry King's show don't get out from in front of the cameras, I'm going to stop watching any tv at all! They're NEVER off the screen on any network and probably never will be now.

I'm glad he cut the old man totally out of the will and isn't it interesting that he supposidly chose Diana Ross to be his kids guardian if his mom can't do it. Not one of his brothers, not one of his sisters, but Diana! Such a loving, close family which Joe is still trying to spin!

Michael may have turned wierd (and I'm not sure now how much of that was actually simply PR to keep people talking about him and how strange he was - he was a genius not only with music but with promoting himself - he didn't need Papa Joe for THAT either like Joe always claimed) BUT he wasn't stupid by any means. He wasn't about to turn his kids and estate over to the rest of them other than his mom which says a LOT about him and who he really loved in that family and who loved him.

Why did he leave his kids to two women who are so old?? Why don't his brothers or sisters step up to the plate? Maybe, they resent the kids are not blood-related.

mystified    

Although MJ's life story and passing is truly sad..has anyone realized that he told blatant lies in the martin bashir interview regarding ..well just about everything from his plastic surgery but more importantly his children or rather that they are not his biological children. MJ gave this interview specifically to let the public know that our "perception" of him is wrong.
It would not have matter to the public if MJ used donors or adopted children but the public does care when it is lied to.
This is why alot of the public still to this day believes that he is a pedophile. MJ has lied about so many things over the years. Not small things either. How sad i feel for those children....that they are now finding out that MJ is not their biological father and in fact they know not who their biological mother or father is at all. Only horrible people could do such a thing to such innocent children. Everyone who participated should be ashamed. Oh what a mess you left to clean up MJ...what a mess
