Joe Jackson -- I Won't Be There ... Much

8/4/2009 6:54 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

We just got a declaration from Joe Jackson, filed with the court, and Joe makes it clear -- he supported Michael Jackson's decision to make his wife Katherine the guardian of Michael's 3 kids .. and Joe makes it clear he will keep his distance.

Joe says in the declaration: "I have had a close family relationship with these grandchildren since their birth. I do visit the family residence from time to time and will continue to do so, however I will not be involved in raising the children."

Joe continues, "I understand that all decision-making authority regarding the children will rest with Katherine Jackson. Katherine Jackson is a wonderful caretaker and guardian, and has done an excellent job raising our children and other grandchildren."

Joe agrees that he has a personality of a pimp who used and abused MJ for $$$. He also agrees that he deserves to die rather than get the money. For once in his crappy life, he got it right.

It really doesnt matter anyway, both Katherine and Joe are old and wont live much longer anyway. Then, the next generation will raise those young ones. They will have a better chance at a normal life if thats what happens anyway. Sorry people, but thats just the cold hard facts .

Joe Jackson is an evil man and should have nothing to do with the upbringing of Michael's children if it had not been for his horrible comments to Michael when he was a kid maybe just maybe he would not have done everything that he did to his face. We don't want history repeating itself with Michael's beloved children. Leave these kids alone Joe!!!!

Joe knows he can't control himself. If he were to control MJ kids, he knows he will beat them with his belt to force them to make $$$ more him.
