Jackson's Mom and Kids

Get a Bundle

9/17/2009 4:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Up to now we didn't know how much Katherine Jackson was getting by way of allowance while Michael Jackson's estate gets probated. In legal docs just unveiled today, we now know the special administrators asked to pay her $26,804 per month.

As for the kids, the family allowance for them is $60,000 per month.

The docs also say "...the Estate assets consist of real and personal property exceeding $500 million and that the Estate is solvent."

Katherine and Michael's 3 kids will continue to get an allowance -- which is subject to change -- until the estate is probated. That could take between 1 and 2 years from now.

UPDATE: The docs also list Katherine and the kids' expenses separately.

Now, the kids' specific expenses are redacted -- but it doesn't matter, because the totals are still listed ... and they're HUGE:

-- Salaries and payroll benefits: $315,580 per year
-- Basic needs: $141,300 per year
-- Entertainment and other: $159,120 per year
TOTAL: $720,000 per year

Katherine's expenses per month:

-- Assistant: $4,722
-- Insurance for Asst: $475
-- Housekeeper: $2,080
-- Driver: $2,000
-- Payroll and Taxes on gross salaries: $1,760
-- Utilities: $3,260
-- Clothing: $3,500
-- Personal grooming: $1,000
-- Entertainment: $1,500
-- Car Expenses: $1,750
TOTAL (plus a few expenses we didn't list): $26,804 per month

Enough of the MJ crap!!! Is that all people care about is how someone else is going to live? Don't worry about other people worry about yourself and how you're going to support yourself and your family!!

I am wondering as well what amount of that 60k the kids will ever see? and what in the world would it be needed for? I understand raising kids are expensive and MJ took them everywhere but he also was raising them with having responsibilites around the house {making their beds etc} and now that hes gone will gramma kat keep to that? she certainly won't be globe trotting with them.

i say put it in the bank well, a canadian bank lol and keep on growing till the kids are old enough to understand money and being responsible and then we can be sure 100% will actually get to them

86 grand plus a month for the next one to two years ?
That is over a million a year for an elderly woman and three little kids.

That would be fine if it was exclusively for them , but joe will have his hand out for 10 a month , jermaine will ask for 10 a month from that kitty, no doubt...

25 grand a month for all four of them would have been plenty , over 6000 each a month is beyond plenty.

Keep in mind, just this year on Father's Day no less, good ol dementia ridden joe went to Michael and asked for a 500,000.00 loan.
Not the most tactful guy on the planet...
That is why he is such a bitter prune face , he and Michael were not on the greatest terms during the years , but especially a few days prior to Michael's death because Michael turned him down , as he only had less than 700,000.00 liquid in the bank.
