Judge to Jackson Estate: Go Forth and Multiply

8/7/2009 8:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael JacksonA judge just gave the okay to the special administrators of Michael Jackson's estate to market M.J. all over the place -- the re-publication of "Moonwalk," the merchandising, and the release of Jermaine Jackson's rendition of "Smile" at Michael's memorial.

The administrators wanted to strike the deal quickly because of "a heightened demand for such products due to Jermaine Jackson's moving performance during the memorial service, which may diminish over time."

The deal also includes various memorabilia, such as a 2010 calendar, commemorative coins, school supplies, cardboard cutouts, posters and buttons.

Reliable sources say that Michael was VERY angry with Jermaine during the last week's of his life. For what reason, I have no clue. Keep in mind that Jermaine's lawyer is one of the executors of MJs estate and Jermaine's wife's ex-husband. Was the one who got MJ in touch with Colony Capitol, which has a stake in Neverland (hence his interest in Neverland becoming Michael's final resting place - a place MJ grew to despise) and also got MJ involved with AEG, who pushed MJ into 50 shows he was not healthy enough to perform AND AEG, who were the ones who hired that murderous doctor! I think Jermaine had some hand in Michael's death. DON'T TRUST JERMAINE!!!

Michael Jackson's brain has been released back to his family following toxicology reports - meaning his body and his head are finally reunited.
The singer's brain was temporarily removed last month for further testing.
Jackson's body has been put through three post-mortems, including one performed by private doctors hired by his family.

The burial was not expected to include any formal ceremony and would probably only be attended by possibly brother Jackie and sister La Toya who would be present as witnesses.

@MADAran, thank you - I've tried to explain this on a different board but people just fly off the handle with all the Jermaine hate and go a'ranting. Oh yeah, I'm still mad at LaToya. Hopefully, they'll get the hard drive back before she decides to cover anything. Shudders.

86. Jermaine won't be making money off of 'Smile'.

When 'Smile' is released, the money will go to the original songwriters/producers and everything else to Michael's estate.
Jermaine is also giving any money he makes from performances related to Michael and Michael's songs to charities.

Why isn't anybody mad at La Toya more?
She has all of Michael's unreleased songs. God knows what she's doing with 'em.

I understand those who express distrust for Jermaine Jackson and this constant marketing of Michael. On the one hand, it is disgusting--his family needs to get jobs and the money is not stricktly going to the children. Obviously the money managers should be paid, but Michael's family does not need more money.

Oh, but they do. They are being sued left and right and will likely figure that their dear son/brother is no longer around to milk. But it gets even sicker: the family was trying to get Michael to tour and was, was participating in a lawsuit against him through their concert promoter Allgood Entertainment for $40 million. The people who knew Michael had consistent observations about Michael--that he wanted to have his private life and that he did NOT want to reunite and tour with his brothers. Yet his family persisted.
