Katherine Jackson -- I Will Be Heard!

7/22/2009 3:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Katherine JacksonKatherine Jackson wants "a seat at the table" in all matters involving Michael Jackson's estate.

Katherine's lawyer, Londell McMillan, tells us Katherine called him the day Michael died, asking him to come to the house. McMillan says when he showed up the first weekend, Katherine and Joe expressed "concern" over the estate and hired him to represent Katherine's legal interests.

McMillan says Katherine will not challenge the will, but as far as the executors are concerned, he says, "She deserves a seat at the table at a minimum." McMillan would not say if Katherine merely wanted to be named as a third executor or whether she wanted to challenge John Branca and John McClain, the named co-executors.

Sources connected with Katherine claim she has already asked the co-executors to allow her to participate in the decision-making and her request was "rejected."

McMillan says neither he nor Katherine are pushing for Joe to become a co-executor.

McMillan, who worked for Michael Jackson during the last 3 1/2 years of the singer's life, also has repped Katherine on various business matters related to her son.

McMillan says he's "optimistic they can work things out, but I'm prepared to go the distance if Mrs. Jackson directs to do so."

Mr.Davis I couln't agree with you more. The media made a 'stinkin' thing out of anything to the point of damaging someone in this case Michael reputation. "That's why he retreated, he left the country real sad. Aren't you proud of what you did 'media'? You know, slander is a really big world. The way I see is people had their minds in the gutter at this time. How many people here sleep with their kids or not their own kids, when they go camping? How many people here sleep with their kids when the kids wake up at night because they are 'scared and see monsters'. Michael was a 'gentle' soul and who are we to judge one way or the other? Concerning Katherine maybe she knows 'something' that me and you don't know. She was closer to Michael than me and you. Remember MJs lawyer being fired and all that, is sounding an alarm or a 'red flag' and anyone not too stupid will know that. Why don't we ask: why did Michael fired this lawyer? ...reasons why... what was then or still is a motive for MJ demise? why someone dont' ask those questions? HUMM?...lke I said maybe Katherine knows something. Please let it be and leave her alone, please give good advise if you may but don't critizise her, remember she is MJ mother, he loved her and if it was the opposite he would let the world know like he did with Joe.Or maybe MJ knew them so well he dictated the 'clause', and now he is probably laughing like a child, like he used to, chuckling...he knows the family and 'they' will contest the will. You contest the will , you willl get no money...chuckling again,..smile.....................MJ

katherine get rid of your lawyer mc millian. he represented michael on the neverland ranch while he was affiliated with colony capitals! conflict of interests, something stinks. tom barrack owner of capital records daphne barrak interviewed grace the nanny which is now really really sick, deathly. get the nanny out your house now! i believe neverland is the cause of michaels death. property is very rich in natural resources.

SOmething does not seem right. How can you not let her be present in the decision making 40% or not. Dont believe he left them sole executors. If he fired one of the lawyers, I believe there may be another will somewhere. The clause should have read " no one other than the benefactors of the will can contest the will" Michael was no dummy, he knew what he was doing when he fired the guy also! Now that he is dead, people can come up with anything because he is not here. People on this blog are cruel. His mother is just as elderly as your grandparents and plenty of kids live with their grandparents. Joe is not the devil. Michael planned to have his son come on stage with him and sing, so why is Joe the bad guy. How do you know if the kids want to become stars, they grew up around the greatest entertainer in the world so duh. Hope you all get judged with the same harshness and cruelty as you are judging this family and others.

HI there from Germany!

Maybe somebody can answer me three questions:

1.) How can such an old person get child custody? I mean, she's almost 80 years old, how long she will life??

2.) What's about the rumor about a 4th child? He sat near Janet Jackson at the Staples Center.

3.) Why do the family speak such a lot with British newspaper?

Thanks!

“Katherine called him the day Michael died, asking him to come to the house… Katherine and Joe expressed "concern" over the estate and hired [McMillan] to represent Katherine's legal interests.”

1. How could they be concerned over the estate when they didn’t know what the will said on the day MJ died??
2. Why would they want a lawyer to represent only Katherine’s interests and not Joe’s too??

How transparent. The Jacksons & their greedy lawyers want full control so they can take ALL the money, especially MJ’s kids’ inheritance, I think.

YOU IDIOT !!!! no one said that was a publicity stunt but you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and stop it with the Republican politician pounce on Michael Jackson, or Bill O'Reilly talk about "a rap sheet" BULLSHI*!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOU BASTARD!
HE WAS A PERVERT!!!!!!!!!!!!! BY THE WAY - DO YOU HAVE A 12 year old boy i can share my bed with??
MJ said that was fine-- YOU SICK MAN!!!!!!!!!!!!! KEEP IT IT UP FREAK!!!!!!!!!!

*******************************

Back when people were saying the Pepsi "hair on fire" thing was just a "publicity stunt" were certainly put in our place when we saw the recently released video of Michael with his head aflames WHILE HE STILL DANCES.Eh. There it is. If I'm wrong, and if there is an afterlife, then whatever he did he's paying for now. But I don't believe it.
