Michael Jackson's Other Will

7/6/2009 2:57 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

 Michael Jackson's Other WillWe've learned the "second" will that was lodged with the court was signed by Michael Jackson in 1997. That will was declared null and void when the 2002 will was signed.

The main reason Jackson updated his will in 2002 -- the birth of his last two children.

In both the '97 and 2002 wills, Jackson's lawyer/friend John Branca was named co-executor.

Why is this news? People have their wills updated all of the time, especially when they have kids. Next you're going to tell me that MJ had toilets in his house like the rest of us.

it should have never been brought into the court. The last signed will is what ALL courts/probates will go by.

RIP Michael - you will be missed by millions !!

That makes TOTAL sense.

Of course Michael would update his will to include his kids who were born AFTER the 1997 will. Good for MJ and GOOD that Branca was the executor on both wills.

It proves even more that Michael's wishes were that Branca execute his wishes.

now the roaches will be coming out of the woodwork, it seems everyone wants a piece of Micheals estate, where were all these idiots when MJ really needed them. My heart bleeds for his children, his ex shouldn't get a dime from his estate nor from his children inheritance, she gave that right up when she gave up her rights to her children. May God look over MJ and his children, he will be sadly missed.

No. 8, that is such an over-asked question on all message boards. Its not taht big a mystery to you is it? You dont have to be particularly interested in an article to post a comment, you just have to be a bit bored, like me right now, for instance
