Jackson Family Goes Italian

8/2/2009 12:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The parents of Michael Jackson -- Joe and Katherine -- along with his brother Randy, enjoyed a nice dinner at Madeo in West Hollywood last night.

Jackson family -- play video

We asked the usually chatty Joe if he -- like La Toya -- believes in a conspiracy theory regarding Michael's death. He was surprisingly quiet.

What in the world do you unintelligent idiots think MJ ever did to earn the Nobel Peace Prize? Oh, he was a great worldwide entertainer, who did some charity work or the song "We are the World" ? Wow, hands down, he wins!!!! PaLeeeze, this doesn't even come close to being qualified to even be chosen for this outstanding award. Get real and get a LIFE!!!

Madeo is a place that the paps are always at. If you go there you know you will be seen.
If they wanted privacy they know where not to go.
Just like the pictures of the kids at the JW Hall was not a mistake either is this.

Exactly

How on earth does Randy have a new Porshe...because MAMA padded the amount she needed monthly to MJ and doled it out to the other kids.

YOU'LL NOTICE RANDY IS BACKING UP HIS PARENTS REGARDING CHALLENGING THE EXECUTORS.
INITIALLY PAPA JOE AND KATHERINE SAID RANDY WOULD BE MANAGING THE ESTATE...WHEN THEY LIED AND TOLD THE WORLD HE DIED WITHOUT A WILL.

Sorry MJ had LONG ago made certain that would never happen with his two airtight wills.

Grieve for your lost son and brother but dammit respect his wishes.

I was looking at old post on dlisted about Michael before he died and came across this 2008 post about all the Jackson kids.
You better believe Katherine wants to get her hands on that money so she can give it to them if she dies.

In wikippedia entry on Randy Jackson
Randy and Eliza divorced in 1991 and Randy was found guilty on charges for spousal abuse against her. He spent one month in jail and then another in a psychiatric clinic.

hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
I guess that's why he and Joe get along so well.

Don't you think that it's completely inappropriate to shove a microphone at someone and invade these people's privacy while they are mourning the loss of their son? You people have absolutely no moral compass. Leave Katherine ALONE. How would you like someone doing that to YOUR mother should you ever be killed? It's disrespectful.

you know i hope they can at least get sometime to mourn the loss of mj , and it doesnt mean just because they went to dinner they were disrespecting his memory... however they payed for it doesnt matter she has the money that mj left for her specifically and she can spend it any way she sees fit...i am sure a few dinners or anything else isnt going to break her , and she deserves to grieve in her own time... the will is one thing , as far as the trust we will never know what that read mj could have left his whole family in the trust as getting a portion of monies...he was a very smart person and he would have provided for them all, in one way or another... the trust doesnt have to be made public , so we will never know what was in it...that car that randy drives could have been owned by mj and he left it to his brother in his trust...IT DOESNT ALWAYS HAVE TO BE MONATARY IT CAN BE ASSETS AS WELL...mj was very well aware of what he was doing and he acted very professional on his last wishes, and everyone needs to accept that for being that is the way he wanted it to be....i miss him so much and his wonderful legacy will live on forever!!!!! rip mj---sue

What a colossal misuse of funds, what's wrong with McDonalds? Geeez, $100 plus a person? If I were the court, I'd look at the $$$ being doled out to her from now on. I thought she needed the money to LIVE on, for the kids, etc. This is way out of bounds. No wonder MJ didn't name her executor of his will. Co-executors take this as a warning of things to come, be careful what you give to her, ask for an accounting of how this money will be used and then follow up to make sure it's being used as intended. Don't believe this family again, it's all an illusion.

None of the commenters posts have any basis coming from that video. Nobody KNOWS what this family is going through. THEIR CHILD WAS MURDERED. If my child was murdered and surrounded by unsavory and untrustworthy people, I would be contesting their will too. By the way, to the person who criticized them for going out to dinner and the one who said "We know who DIDN'T pay for this dinner"....what do YOU know? Randy has done VERY well for himself as a producer and has his own money. It's very possible that he is treating his parents to dinner, just like normal people. God, you people are descpicable.

11. Smh. He better Shut That Mouth around Katherine. Any way People Watch Michael Jackson Phone conversation parts 1,2,3,4 on youtube. And watch the Media try to Rip him apart. This really breaks my heart Smh.

I just listen to the conversations and my heart breaks for him, however, the bitch who recorded the first conversation needs her flat ass kicked. It just goes to show poor Michael really had no friends. He’s pouring his heart out to this heifer and she’s recording him. BITCH! There was no one for Michael to trust, except for his mother. He said his father never hugged the children that he had with Katherine, but he hugged the girl he had outside the marriage. JJ you’re an IDIOT! RIP Michael!
